Courtney Love’s Cool with Justin Bieber’s Nirvana Tee

You can’t blame the guy for having good taste, but it might make a rock fan cringe to see someone like Justin Bieber wearing a Nirvana tee shirt.  He’s done it before, most recently at the American Music Awards last Sunday, when he was photographed wearing a vintage “Heart Shaped Box” shirt. You wouldn’t be alone in your criticism -- lots of folks considered it sacrilege, and gleefully jumped on the bash-Bieber bandwagon.  Courtney Love, however, isn’t one of them.  The singer and former Mrs. Kurt Cobain tweeted in the wake of the fallout, “You’re cool in my book, @justinbieber…
