I know the two are in no way related but I was very saddened by the new of Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon’s break-up, so I immediately began wracking my brain for legitimate adorable rock or indie couples of today.
Guess what I came up with? Several weeks ago, I thought of Zooey Deschanel and Ben Gibbard! And now they’re getting divorced too. So aggravating, there are no notable romantic musician-pairings left besides Brody Dalle and Josh Homme.
Except we have the sort of relevance engagement of Frances Bean Cobain to 26 year-old Isaiah Silva, of The Rambles. This makes me a little wary since their most famous song seems to be “I Just Want To Sleep With You.”
“I don’t really wanna fall in love cause I just wanna sleep with you,” that’s the chorus. And I’m not concerned because of content/lyrics. I’m annoyed because it’s a terrible song.
You know what, nevermind, what am I talking about? Her parents were two of the least sensible (yet most musically amazing) parents ever. Why would I expect Frances to make wise choices? I’m never having children. My expectations are too high.
I wanted her to marry some genius musician who doesn’t even exist. Someone with Hendrix’s guitar skills, Eddie Vedder’s voice, Alex Turner’s wittiness and the face of a young Jim Morrison.
I guess this emo-scrub version of Kurt will have to do.
