Is Frances Bean Cobain Headed For The Ivy League?

Courtney Love, once called “the most controversial woman in the history of rock” by Rolling Stone, claims that her 17-year-old daughter Frances Bean’s “groundedness” is thanks to her “DNA”.

“She’s really conservative in a good way,” the 45-year-old Hole rocker told OK! at the Elton John AIDS Foundation annual benefit, An Enduring Vision, held Monday (November 16) in New York City at Cipriani Wall Street.

“She’s going to college. She’s looking at colleges,” adds Courtney. “She’s in her last year of school. She wants to go to an Ivy League school [where she’ll study] fine art, maybe film.”

Earlier this month Frances was in the news after causing a scene at an Amtrak station in Boston. According to the NY Post, the young Cobain was upset after being told her reservation hadn’t been paid for: “She caused huge backup on the line because she refused to pay herself,” says a source. “She was causing a scene and saying her name loudly to the guy behind the counter, but he had no idea who she was. Finally, she got out of line to call her business manager, who paid for her ticket.”

    Lots of people “want” to go to an Ivy League school. Doesn’t mean it’s actually going to happen.

    I think if she really wants to attend an Ivy League school then she will need to correct her grammar. Even in an informal letter like the one she wrote to Ali, she comes across as uneducated, self-important and childish. The poor thing.

      I agree with your comment, but even with her lack of aptitude, just because she’s Kobain & Love’s daughter, I can see her getting into one of these schools. Sad but true.

    I rolled my eyes at this story. Just look at how poorly Cobain’s daughter writes. Read the brat’s Twitter posts: Frances is so lazy she can’t even include an apostrophe in the contraction “I’m”. Frances hardly seems suitable for college. Frances comes across as very immature, and her ambivalence towards Bard (one of her supposed top college picks) is hilarious; she’s “sort of fascinated” by Bard. I wonder what qualifications she has. I hope she realizes that having a world-famous dead junkie musician father isn’t enough to gain her entrance into Bard.
