Frances Bean Cobain is the executive producer of the thrilling documentary about her late father, Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, but that doesn't mean she's Nirvana's number one fan. It seems like just yesterday she was a wee babe in RuPaul's arms, or even an intern at Rolling Stone, but now that she's all grown up, she's the one giving the interviews. 

In anticipation of Montage of Heck, Frances Bean Cobain is following in her parents' footsteps by being profiled for Rolling Stone. In an exclusive interview, Cobain talks about the process of making the documentary, not putting her late father on a pedestal, and what kind of music she really likes. She told RS with a smile, "I don't really like Nirvana that much. Sorry, promotional people, Universal. I'm more into Mercury Rev, Oasis, Brian Jonestown Massacre," she added.      

Cobain might not love her dad's music, but to those who knew him, she's eerily like him. During a casual meeting with Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic, and Pat Smear, "[T]hey had what I call the 'K. C. Jeebies,' which is when they see me, they see Kurt. They look at me, and you can see they're looking at a ghost. They were all getting the K. C. Jeebies hardcore."      

Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck opens in limited release on April 10, and will air on HBO on May 4. (Rolling Stone)
