Courtney Love has been flying under the radar for awhile, but the 47-year-old rocker/actress has started making headlines again. Best known for being the lead singer of the 90s alternative rock band Hole and the widow of late Nirvana front man Kurt Cobain, she’s supposedly penning an autobiography that will “set the record straight” about her relationship with Cobain. Courney has told the media that it’s going to be a tell-all memoir published by HarperCollins and may reach stores as early as the end of 2011. Now there’s a Christmas present for the grunge fans on your shopping list!
Always considered a hell-raising groupie that hates being out of the limelight—in addition to Cobain, she’s been linked to actor Jim Carrey and a string of rockers including Billy Corgan of the Smashing Pumpkins—Courtney’s also getting ready to become a mother-in-law. Frances Bean Cobain, her 19-year old daughter, is engaged to her boyfriend Isaiah Silva of The Rambles after just one year of dating. Frances recently inherited a fortune from her deceased father’s estate, which she used to purchase a mansion near Los Angeles. Who knows how Courtney feels about the situation, but the rocker mom who once sported torn babydoll dresses and smeared makeup manages to look sleek and sophisticated in this cap-sleeve dress and Ray Ban sunglasses.
