Don’t worry, Justin Bieber…. Courtney Love totally has your back! After he was slammed by Nirvana fans for rocking the band’s t-shirt at the AMAs, Kurt Cobain’s widow revealed she was into his ‘cool’ look.
Justin Bieber, 21, angered a lot of 90’s grunge music fans when he arrived at the 2015 American Music Awards on Sunday night, Nov. 22, wearing a Nirvana t-shirt. However, it was Courtney Love, 51, who stuck up for the “Sorry” singer when fans of the iconic band turned on him on social media.
Guess what, Nirvana fans? It turns out that Justin Bieber has an ally in Courtney Love, and she made sure to make her position on his t-shirt choice at the 2015 AMAs known by calling him “cool” on social media.
“You’re cool in my book @justinbieber,” Courtney tweeted on Sunday night, Nov. 22, after fans of Nirvana dragged Justin through the mud for rocking the band’s t-shirt on the red carpet.
Some of the awful tweets directed at Justin’s fashion choice included claiming that lead singer Kurt Cobain had “rolled over in his grave” when the young singer put on a Nirvana t-shirt. Another tweeted assumed that Kurt’s ghost “wasn’t happy” after seeing Justin in the t-shirt. Who knew so many people were in contact with Kurt in the after life?
No matter what you thought about Justin’s shirt, it was really cool for Courtney to stick up for him. After all, artists are always inspired by other artists, and if Justin — who was only one month old when Kurt died — happens to be a fan of Nirvana’s music, that’s his own business.
Tell us, HollywoodLifers — Do YOU think Justin deserved all of the flack he got for wearing a Nirvana shirt? Are you surprised that Courtney stood up for him? Comment below with your thoughts!
