As part of his ongoing promotional activities for the compilation of expanded celebrity interviews, Strauss tells Radar Online that he and the singer almost came together for a once-in-a-lifetime posthumous ritual. If not for the fact that the journalist-author was saying no at the time to drugs, things might have turned out very differently:
“She was serious when she made the offer,” Strauss revealed. “She actually said she would offer his [Kurt Cobain] ashes to me first to snort and then said she would like them to. But the idea was nixed as I don’t do coke.”
The near-snort went down late one night at Love’s LA home, and when you read the excerpted portion of the Love interview shared at Radar, it seems more like a playful shock tactic by the singer than something that would have actually gone much further. Still, it’s a great way to sell a few extra books.
