Frances Bean Cobain To Sing!

| Filed under: Music MinuteWacky, Tacky & TrueCourtney Love

wenn5337364jb.jpg

Frances Bean Cobain is following in the footsteps of her rock stars parents, Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love, by debuting her vocal skills - in possibly one of the most bizarre concepts we've ever heard.

Cobain will be lending her voice as part of a group of other singers on the new high concept musical project by former Dresden Dolls singer Amanda Palmer and bandmate Jason Webley, called Evelyn Evelyn.

We use the word high concept delicately because it basically just sounds STOOPID and gimmicky.

Palmer is apparently parading Evelyn Evelyn around as though the band actually singing conjoined twins who grew up in the circus and are accompanied on tour by the singer and her bandmate.

We liked her better when she was just singing about Coin Operated Boys or whatever the hell that song was.

Bean will be singing on a track called "My Space," with other contributers Weird Al Yankovic, Tegan & Sara, and My Chemical Romance singer Gerard Way.

We're curious to see about her singing chops, but we think if she was smart enough to get emancipated from her mother, she could pick a better project to test out the musical waters with!

What do U think? Will U be listening to Evelyn Evelyn?

    Give Frances a break, Perez. I'll check her out because I'm quite curious, but I really hope that she lives a LONG happy life whatever she does. I feel lucky enough to have seen kurt back in the day..can't help but route for the bean :)

    unless they have already recorded it gerard way wont be on the track. they updated their site today canceling shows because gerard has a throat problem. they still have to finish their album. so it might happen but i doubt it.

    gerard= amazing

    What is your malfunction when you don't understand a concept, youdullwittedfatcvnt…
    Amanda Palmer = genuine creative & performance innovation…
    The other performers listed have genuine credentials & LONGEVITY…
    .
    & you call Laddie Caca ART…you stupid cvnt (it bears repeating)

    Will people listen to your boyband? Most likely not. I'd rather listen to this.



  6. 6

    Hope it doesn't suck.



  7. 7

    I think its an interesting combination of talent. Plus anything with Tegan and Sara is going to be amazing!



  8. 8

    aww I hope she does well.



  9. 9

    Can't wait to hear her. I am sure she has some serious talent. Go Frances Bean!!



  10. 10

    I like Frances



  11. 11

    Amanda & Jason are true genius / talent, as apposed to some artists you kiss ass to on here. The music they make from Evelyn Evelyn has been really awesome, from what I've heard so far, so back off on what you consider "stooopid".



  12. 12

    I just got "Have You Seen My Sister Evelyn" a few days ago. It's really interesting. I totally dig The Dresden Dolls and went to see the True Colors tour specifically to see them. This new track is reminiscent of The Dresden Dolls, but it's totally old school showtune as well. I'm looking forward to hearing more tracks.



  13. 13

    She looks like Drew Barrymore for some reason



  14. 14

    This is a Courtney manipulation. She's buddied up to Amanda, and now sets her traps to ensnare Frances. Obvs.



  15. 15

    Yeah, it's most likely going to be completely and totally awesome. amanda palmer hasn't done any wrong yet.



  16. 16

    Yes, I will listen to this because I am in LOVE with Amanda Palmer! Also, she is not the singer of the former Dresden Dolls. They are still together, but are pursuing their own projects dumbass!



  17. 17

    oooooh. i love Amanda Palmer. Love Dresden Dolls as well - so i guess i would be hearing it anyway. i love nirvana AND courtney loves music so really just slap a cherry on top of this and il be a very happy bunny! iv seen Amanda Palmer live - magical show.



  18. 18

    good for her. she rocks! she's only 17, and I think she's been so smart with dealing with hollywood and all that.. I think she knows that she doesn't want to cash in early and be known as a disney child star, she'd rather wait and develop and test the waters and not let people corrupt her so that she can ultimately blossom into an incredible genius artist with her own mind and her own voice! I hope she doesn't let people corrupt her, she's so beautiful and she seems to intelligent!

    "We use the word high concept delicately because it basically just sounds STOOPID and gimmicky."

    *

    This line of bullshit from the talentless, fame-whoring, celeb-wannabe twink, you, Mario, who is all ABOUT being…"STOOPID and gimmicky."

    *

    Think of that "STOOPID and gimmicky" tour recently. Or that "STOOPID and gimmicky" cartoon you've been posting on here the last few weeks.

    *

    "STOOPID and gimmicky"? That's the description in the wikipedia entry for Perez Hilton.

    you talk about things like you actually know what they're about. You're such a fucking idiot Perez. Note to Amanda Palmer fans: when you see this idiot, just kick his ass.



  21. 21

    She looks like Betty Boop!



  22. 22

    Amanda Palmer is amazing! I'm excited about this.



  23. 23

    I sorta kinda love Frances Bean Cobain.. Kinda excited for her music to be honest. Oh and I love that the Dresden dolls were mentioned there music is AMAZING



  24. 24

    i hear members of mindless self indulgence will be featured on this album. SUH-WEEEEET!!!



  25. 25

    tegan quin, i've lost respect for you.
    first the twilight soundtrack, now weird al and gerard way? ugh.



  26. 26

    She's a screwed up girl with crappy values.

    But then no surprise with that HILLBILLY MOTHER who thinks she's royalty.

    Courtney shouldn't be looking down at Cobain's trashy relatives, because she is a trasher too (just the suburban version)



  27. 27

    who the fuck is writing your posts today? honestly, hire a writer and an editor…we all know you're making enough money.



  28. 28

    If she has the talent, I think she has the smarts to make it. Distancing herself from her mother was a very smart move. If she is to make her own brand, then she doesn't need it tainted with her mom's smear. WTG Francis!



  29. 29

    I will be listening. It sounds very interesting and I adore Amanda!



  30. 30

    Re: lopezfanyeah – First of all, you shouldn't be disrespecting the Cobain family because I HIGHLY doubt you know them all personally. And second, It's not very smart to judge someone just because of who there parents are. It's simply stupid and ignorant. Ps you should go slam your head into a desk for a couple hours, it might make you smarter. Thanks.



  31. 31

    Re: Anti_Emo!Re: Anti_Emo! – Well said. I love you for it. :D



  32. 32

    hang on a sec….a track featuring…let me get this right…Tegan and Sara and Weird Al?
    ok…this i MUST have….Tegan and Sara are amazing (and I just took my 6 year old daughter to see them in concert at Massey Hall in Toronto the other week….) and they're on a track with Weird Al?….as perez himself would say 'amaze-balls' lol….i've got to hear this….



  33. 33

    Actually listen to Amanda Fucking Palmer. Do you review all your music without listening to it or doing any research, or are you just jealous because she's actually talented and you're just a wannabe?



  34. 34

    no. how dare she get on lindsay lohan's sister (granted she's also an idiot) about gaining fame for who her family is? what a hypocrite! she wouldn't know any celebrities or have any connections if it wasn't for who her parents were. if she were truly about "artistic integrity" she would work hard to get what she wanted just like her father, or even more respectable, if she lived a life outside of hollywood. now wouldn't that be unusual?? a celebrity child that doesn't ride their families coattails?!! i have a feeling we're going to be seeing a lot more of this girl and i'm already sick of her.



  35. 35

    amanda palmer is disgusting.



  36. 36

    And Lady Gaga isn't gimmicky?



  37. 37

    Who asked you, Perez? Amanda Palmer is a respected artist, doing her own thing for YEARS now. BEFORE you criticize someone, GOOGLE them honey.



  38. 38

    i'm excited about it!



  39. 39

    No!



  40. 40

    I LOVE Amanda! Her solo album is amazing.



  41. 41

    I think her glasses don't cover her face enough.

    And did someone put her mouth in the wrong spot? Hmm, about 2cm too high I think.



  42. 42

    Courtney, the wonderful mother that she ain't, must be so jelous!



  43. 43

    when I was a kid my friends and I made up a band. we came up with album titles and songs, but we just didn't have instruments. that's what Evelyn Evelyn reminds me of; just two friends having fun.



  44. 44

    Just reading the word cobain makes my heart all tingaly. This is Kurt Cobains offspring for god sake musically he was a singer, but let her start there and then move to more creative means of music. The girl is such a beautiful and smart,(obviously since she made the right choice to get away from her looney mother) lil lady, and she has major potential. Music stays in the blood, it carries on from generation to generation. I havent even heard of half the peeps you just mentioned she was collaborating with, but t would be amazing if she collaborated with Dave Grohl in some acoustic set..that would be amazeballs!!!!



  45. 45

    perez your a fuckin' tool. Amanda Palmer is a breathe of fresh air within todays music culture. This genuinely looks amazing, esp the tegan and sara part ;) but im very interested to see how Frances gets on being a huge nirvana fan myself.



  46. 46

    If Tegan & Sara are involved, odds are, it's going to be awesome…



  47. 47

    I knew THAT was coming.

    She needs to lose weight.

    GOOD GRIEF……HOW UNCANNY I AM JUST NOW READING "WHO KILLED KURT COBAIN" WHAT A READ, SERIOUSLY IF YOU HAVNT READ IT AND YOUR A FAN TAKE IT IN HAND IT'S A GREAT READ BY IAN HALPERIN



  50. 50

    I Love Gerard Way But WTF?
    I Hope He's Only Producing Or Something

    ~GERARD WAY ROCKS~



  51. 51

    looks like amanda palmers using people again. what a tacky starfucker.



  52. 52

    "Palmer is apparently parading Evelyn Evelyn around as though the band actually singing conjoined twins who grew up in the circus and are accompanied on tour by the singer and her bandmate."

    -What the hell does this sentence even mean??

    I'm a fan of this site, but it's time to get some writers who are educated. The time has come to hire better staff, because the poor grammar is becoming a problem. I love this website, and I know it's just a vapid gossip site, but the quality of writing is embarrassing.

    p.s. Anything Amanda Palmer is involved in will be great.



  53. 53

    STUPID! Amanda Palmer is so FUGLY and UNTALENTED and DESPERATE for ATTENTOIN! GO AWAY!!!!!!! She got Gaiman — what a dumb ass.



  54. 54

    I think Amanda is posting on here cause the girl is DESPERATE and wants to be respected SO BAD!!! SHE SUCKS!
    I love T & S however, now there's talent!



  55. 55

    Amanda is a DUDE!



  56. 56

    AMANDA FUCKING PALMER RULES



  57. 57

    whats really stoopid p? leaving words out of your sentences
    "the band actually singing conjoined twins who grew up in the circus"
    what?



  58. 58

    thank you, at least i'm not the only one thinking this act has about as much tact as an unflushed toilet. what palmer lacks in talent, she spins anything she can think of and coin it in the name of creative art. it's weak. but, i love her supporting cast of characters. she hangs out in the right places. gerard way and frances bean. maybe she should join mcr.
