Love, who is the widow of the iconic band’s frontman Kurt Cobain, has regularly utilised the social media platform’s live-streaming service to interact with her fans, often taking part in Q&A sessions with her followers. Last night’s session even drew an audience from American Horror Story actress Sarah Paulson, who lauded Love as “a true genius” in a comment.

While a recording of the live stream doesn’t appear to available online, Love did respond to a number of fan questions from those who tuned into the stream at around 9pm last night. One viewer asked the former Hole frontwoman to name her favourite Nirvana songs, with Love firstly choosing ‘Heart-Shaped Box’ (from 1993’s ‘In Utero’) – a song that she once told Lana Del Rey was about “my vagina.”
Love also revealed that the Nirvana songs ‘Serve The Servants’ (‘In Utero”s opening track), ‘Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge On Seattle’ (‘In Utero’) and ‘In Bloom’ (from 1991’s ‘Nevermind’) also ranked high in her estimation. Listen to ‘In Bloom’ below.
With Love and Del Rey now close friends, the pair recently interviewed one another to discuss their love of each other’s music.
“I think my very, very favourite song of yours – you’re not gonna like this because it’s early – is ‘Blue Jeans’,” Love told Del Rey. “I mean, [the lyric]: ‘You’re so fresh to death and sick as ca-cancer‘? Who does that?”
