“Kurt Cobain Lives in the GOP presidential debate! Kurt supported Jerry Brown for president in 1992,” Mr. Novoselic wrote of Cobain. “I’ve never seen heroin — seriously. I’m addicted to oil though: Olive Oil!!! #Huntsman.”
Mr. Novoselic continued that he’s pro-Huntsman, “OK — I’m now officially interested. #huntsman … I’ll campaign for @JonHuntsman and if elected, he’ll nominate me for Dept. Of Bass Tossers. I will go down in flames in Senate confirmation.”
“I have an announcement: All Kurt Cobain and 90s grunge jokes have been made. Please cease and desist all further efforts. #999isajoke,” wrote one Twitter user.
Mr. Howe was referencing another statement made by Mr. Huntsman during the debate: “This country needs to wean itself from its heroinlike addiction to foreign oil.”
Cobain famously struggled with heroin addiction.
'Sex and the City' prequel to air on CW network
Teeny-bopper network CW reportedly will be home to “The Carrie Diaries,” a prequel to “Sex and the City,” the wildly popular HBO television series that inspired two movies.
“The Carrie Diaries,” which follows the high school life of Carrie Bradshaw before she becomes an iconic New York City sex columnist, is the first of two prequel books. Earlier this year, “Sex and the City” author Candace Bushnell released the second book in the prequel saga, “Summer and the City,” which takes readers through the months before Bradshaw is supposed to start college.
“Gossip Girl” executive producer Josh Schwartz is lined up to produce “The Carrie Diaries” and former “Sex and the City” writer Amy B. Harris is scheduled to adapt the series.
“Sex and the City” producer Michael Patrick King said last month that he was “not working on any 'Sex and the City' prequel” and that he had no desire to see the show focus on a younger, more naive version of Bradshaw.
“My Carrie Bradshaw started at 33, and I took her to 43. I didn’t even want to know who Carrie Bradshaw’s parents were because I thought she only existed in Manhattan,” Mr. King said at the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour in Southern California. “So for me, the idea of going backwards and making her less evolved … is something that I don’t imagine doing.”
