Frances Bean Cobain for NOH8 campaign
Frances Bean Cobain, daughter of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love, recently posed for the NOH8 campaign with the statement “Being a people pleaser is a fruitless task; love is love. There should be no debating that concept”. Frances is not one to mince her words: earlier this year she schooled Lana Del Rey over her statement “I wish I was dead already…. I do. I don’t want to have to keep doing this.” as she expressed admiration for several artists who died young, including Kurt Cobain. Frances Cobain responded on her Twitter account: “I’ll never know my father because he died young & it becomes a desirable feat because ppl like u think it’s ‘cool’…Well, it’s fucking not. Embrace life, because u only get one life. The ppl u mentioned wasted that life. Don’t be 1 of those ppl.”. You go, girl!
The NOH8 Campaign is a photographic silent protest created by photographer Adam Bouska and partner Jeff Parshley in direct response to the passage of Proposition 8, which banned same-sex marriage in California. Since 2008, the movement has gone on to be a global phenomenon supported by public figures such as Larry King, Slash, Lady Gaga Weird Al Yankovic, Ricky Martin and many more.
