    Link: Kurt Cobain-Inspired Converse Shoes - Courtney Love allowed Converse to use Cobain`s journals for this limited edition series of custom sneakers. Yay or nay?

    Big drating nay. Courtney pulls out the journals like her own little trust fund. Now she can market Kurt Cobains persona into a shoe company owned by Nike.

    Hear that? Its Kurt Cobain trying to kill himself in heaven.

    I think its drating ridiculous. Basically she`s obviously running out of money and has decided to suck more out of Kurts death. I mean how is their daughter gonna feel when she see`s shoes with her fathers personal writings. Its a joke.

Does she have no shame? Or how about respect for her dead husband? What a bitch, she probably killed Kurt anyway. drating whore.

    They`re not really private....considering that the writing on the shoes is his Lyric Books. *cough*

    NAY. If Cobain were still alive he would not have wanted this and I think its complete and total bullS*## that she is still able to profit off of his work. It just goes to show she never had any respect for him and also that she is a money grubbing talentless whore. No way around it.

    I love the black ones with the white writing. But I don`t think I will ever be able to justify spending that much on trainers (you know they`re gonna be expensive). And I live in England. So they`ll never get sold here.
    Also might be a bit weird to walk around with a dead guys scribbles on my feet. To be honest I`d love them just as much if they had random words on rather than someones deepest inner thoughts.
    Leave it with some great music and a tragic death. I don`t think he`d like these.

    Jandoisking1, your symbolism is so 1sided...let me rebut...

    How about the words are what carry us through the hardest times? They keep us safe and warm and protected. They`re a sign of moving...moving forward and away from the past.

    For me and many people, Cobains` words have helped through hard times and provided a safe place. I think it`s a strong form of respect to wear someone`s words, in whatever form.

    Maybe oneday someone will read what I`ve written and carry it with them.

    I personally cant be bothered with such selfish cnuts...Don`t need people/things like this in my life...but did I not read in some SleazeMag somewhere, some day...that Courtney Love was a bit of an "OJ Simpson" but it never went to `Silly court` ...aka The Justice courts of America`?

    He is dead, should we even try to respect him.
    Is this respect?
    Is leaving him alone respect.
    Obviously I am going to either have to complain a lot in an ineffective manner or ignore the situation. That seems like the way of the people.

    A dead man`s soul on a pair of shoes.

    A well designed pair off shoes.

    Maybe I could wrap his corpse around my waist and call it a dress.

    animadi, if words can be written in our hearts, then why can`t they be written anywhere else?
    Is this any different from listening to his music?
    Is it any different from remembering him as a person?

    The memory of Kurt will ALWAYS be there for as long as there`s music and people with the respect to let it touch them in the way it was meant.

    If it doesn`t touch you, then maybe it`s not meant to, but PLEASE don`t take it away from anyone else.

    primetimekin, surely you have more to worry about than singers and shoes...

    How can they be your least favourite things? I mean really, I rank child abuse and rape as some of my least favourite things. And if I tried I could probably cfome up with worse.

    Obviously music legends are lost in the hands of kids. It`s a shame. When `T.I` makes it up there with the legends, I`ll be sure to send my congratulations.

    not shoes, converse. Never was a big fan of Chuck Taylor. And I said one of im sure there are atleast 5 things I can name that are worse. And T.I. is an Urban Legend. Does that count? Just wait til T.I dies then he will be a legend. That seems to be the qualification, lennon, cobain, marvin gaye, etc.

    I can promise you now that no matter how long after his death, T.I will never have what it takes to become a legend. More than that, he`ll never have what it takes for his thoughts and feelings to be written on anything, let alone on such an extremely universal icon of youth culture.

    absolute nay. it`s disgusting. do you think kurt cobain would want a bunch of self-declared "grunge rockers" parading around with his personal thoughts and feelings on over-priced converse shoes as a fashion statement?
    he commited suicide, it`s one thing to publish a private journal as a book, but something about plastering it on a shoe so uncreative and disrespectful "fans" (if you can REALLY call them that) can make a statement is bullpoo

    Cobain dedicated his life to fighting the capitolist machine and it seems like, just as Che Guevarre before him. Capitolism is pissing on his ashes by making him part of the machine. Though it dooesn`t surprise me that courtney love did this, what`s a murdering crack-whore supposed to do when she has no talent to pay her crack bills.... of course she sells out the legacy of the man she loved

    I`m sure this is just what Kurt always wanted; his most private thoughts dragged through the mud and stepped all over. *dripping sarcasm* I`m a huge fan of his, and I`ve never read the journals, even though I`m interested because it`s such a huge disrespect. I`m not the first to say this, but it`s true, just another money grubbing stunt from the junkie slut, I won`t dignify her even a little by using her name.

    i think people need to get their facts straight!
    but i do think it was wrong for her to put it on shoes... but with the journal thing...its like nikki sixx, comin out to help others...but anyway...idk, and i dont no her personally, so who am i to judge?

    He is getting there. He already reached Icon status as being King of the South. He is one of the most recognized rappers out there (rap is still the most famous music genre worldwide). He started off slow with Trap Muzik, got on the scene with Urban Legend, became an Icon with KING, showed his versatility with T.I. Vs. T.I.P. and his next album Paper Trail, he is going back to paper and pen. He has made 60 songs but is only choosing 15 then he will make another 15. He has recruited some of the hottest talent to join his recording company Grand Hustle, he has made his way into hollywood, he is getting there.

    primetimekin, he`s not getting there. He doesnt even know where `there` is.
    Rap clearly isn`t `the most famous music genre worldwide`. That`s probably the biggest load of crap I`ve read on here in a long time!
    And as for that `white street` comment, well that just highlights for me what rap is about for so many artists. If they`re not rapping about `bitches` and `hoes`, they`re rapping about `n*ggers` and `honkeys`.
    It`s all been done before, they just don`t seem to get it.

    The moment he gets entered into the hall of fame, I`ll eat my words.

    Until then, I see T.I as nothing but a moneymaking criminal.

    Oh lookey here at what I just found...
    "T.I. has confirmed through one of his representatives that he is working on a new studio album while being under house arrest pending his gun charges"

    Oh and you know what else...
    "He is also known to go by "Rubberband Man" and the self-proclaimed "King of the South"

    I died so much inside when I saw this. Courtney Love is profiting from Kurt Cobain`s misery. Those were his own journals and now she`s raping his privacy (even though he`s dead) and turning it into money for her crack habit. Addicts will literally do anything to get their fix. She might as well have used his dead, rotting corpse and put it up on display in a gallery and call it "art". Courtney Love might as well be scum. There`s no difference.

    Big Nay. Think about this, if she hadn`t killed him (not directly, but she had something to do with it) they would have gotten divorced, she would have run out of money years ago, and never would have had the chance to spend all the money and capitalize on his name for 14 years now. Now she`s selling shoes and using his name for more money. Another thing that I hate is that their now 15 year old daughter, Frances Bean, goes on talking about her Prada shoes and sounds just like Courtney, which is the exact opposite of how Kurt would want her to be.

    She`s a stupid whore. Go here for an interesting read on how drated up and desperate to be famous she is:
