Courtney Love Considered Snorting Cobain's Remains
Isn't that against the law?
As far as things go, I toe the line of eccentric to weird. But Courtney Love's recent rumors even have me spinning! According to Neil Strauss, Courtney offered him a line of Kurt Cobain's ashes. So strange. So wrong.

Kurt Cobain was cremated after his death, and Courtney Love kept some of the ashes in her possession (as opposed to burying them or scattering them). She's even offered them up as a rock 'n' roll substance-of-choice, if you choose to believe author Neil Strauss.
Strauss, currently on tour for his book Everybody Loves You When You're Dead: Journeys Into Fame And Madness, said that Love gave him a chance to toot some Cobain.
"She walked to a dresser, pulled open a drawer, and removed a square-shaped tin," Strauss said. "She removed the lid, revealing a plastic bag full of white ashes."
She added, "Too bad you don't do coke. Otherwise I'd suggest taking a metal straw to it."

Ahhhhh! I have goosebumps. I wonder what Cobain would've thought of this--would he have been amused? I doubt that he would have appreciated getting his ashes offered to randoms--just rock royalty, please, if that.
Have some respect for the dead, Courtney! We know you're gone, but are you that far gone? Strauss added "She was serious when she made the suggestion."
