Does this mean that Frances Bean Cobain will be stepping into the spotlight? We would all be tuned in, don’t deny it.

A new photo shoot with Frances Bean Cobain, the daughter of late rock icon Kurt Cobain and musician-actress-personality Courtney Love, reveals the progeny has a tattoo of Quentin Crisp on her back.

Bean is the subject of a moody black-and-white photo shoot by Hedi Slimane. In the photos the 19-year-old shows off a number of tattoos, including one of the late queer activist on her back beneath her right shoulder next to a French quote, “L’art est la solution au Chaos,” which translates as “Art is the solution of chaos.”

The British-born Crisp, who died in 1999, is still celebrated by many as a queer pioneer. His 1968 memoir The Naked Civil Servant detailed his life and the persecution he often experienced due to his refusal to hide being gay.

Courtney Love has said she Believes Lady Gaga Could End up as a ‘lonely drag queen’

If it came down to a street brawl between Ms Love and Gaga, I think it would be a pretty fair match. Love would most likely fight dirty and Gaga would probably try to drowned Love with magic pixie dust. I would put money down that Love would be standing at the end though. ~ AB

Both women have caused their fair share of controversy over the years, with neither famed for being shy and retiring, and Courtney acknowledged there are similarities between the pair.

However, she admitted in an interview with The Fix she was worried about how Lady Gaga will cope in the future.
‘She’s very young, and she’s very talented, but she doesn’t seem to have any female friends. Or any straight guy friends for that matter, ‘the former Hole singer said.
‘Instead, she surrounds herself with this coterie of gay stylists and advisers who’ve turned her into this weird, sexless Barbie doll.’
