This was the shoot where Kurt was getting upset with everyone so he put out his cigarette on his forehead and then when they were shooting the video for “Heart-Shaped Box” they had to put a ton of makeup on him and even tape his hair to his face at some point…I’ve never actually seen the burn so prominently before.
kurt put a cigarette out on his forehead during the taping for HSB. he and courtney were arguing….she kept telling him ‘you have to look good. this is important”…..after he burned his forehead , he asked her if “he looked good enough for her NOW”…..
it was a bad burn……they did cover it up with makeup and hair….watch how kurt’s hair never moves, til he moves it himself.
it was still noticeable at the VMA’s a month later..(sept) and club lingerie
(the rape benefit) also in sept 1993
