Video: Courtney Love, the Cartoon
Strange, animated highlights of The Fix's new e-book are released by a controversial Thai news site.
Over the past few years, NMA.TV, a video news-site based in Taiwan, has made waves by animating some serious events, producing "fact-based" illustrated depictions of Barack Obama's showdown with House Speaker John Boehner and the murder trial of Casey Anthony. But earlier today the site released a video depiction of Courtney Comes Clean, Maer Roshan's news-making bio of the singer. The 90-second video illustrates several details uncovered in a previously-sealed deposition that Love's then 17-year-old daughter submitted to L.A Superior Court in 2009. Her sworn statement alleged that her mother's habits threatened to set fire to their home, and resulted in the death of two of Frances's pets. Convinced by her testimony, a judge freed Frances from Love's custody, and transferred guardianship of the teenager to Kurt Cobain's mother instead.
Courtney Comes Clean, the first in a series of Fix e-books, was released on Wednesday, and is currently one of the top-trending e-books at Barnes and Noble. You can order a copy here for $2.99. Catch a surreal snippet of NMA's video version of the book below.
