|The movie did not see much
commercial success and Courtney's movie career soon fizzled after
another straight-to-video movie entitled Straight To Hell. After this, Courtney
Love moved to Minneapolis where she joined an all-female band called
Babes in Toyland. Soon after, she was kicked out of the band.
With no money and no job, Courtney tried to become a stripper but none
of the local clubs would hire her because was "too fat". So
she headed back to LA in 1989 and formed the band Hole. Their debut
album called Pretty on the Inside didn't burn up the charts, but it did
establish them as viable musicians.
Major record labels took notice of the eccentric Courtney Love
and her band, but before she could sign a record deal with any label,
she met and married Curt Kobain
from the music band Nirvana
in late 1992. Courtney instantly went from a potentially successful
musician to Kurt Cobain's wife.
Rumors about the couple began circulating faster than ever and their
reported drug abuse was worthy of media mention, especially since
Courtney was pregnant at the time with their daughter, Frances Bean.
Child Protective Services began investigating the couple and luckily
their daughter was not taken away from them.
After only a short period of marriage, Courtney's husband's life began
spiraling out of control and his drug abuse (allegedly) led him to
suicide with a shotgun blast to the head in 1994. It took a while, but
Courtney managed to survive through the ordeal and released her new
album only one week after her husband's unfortunate death.
The album was entitled Live Through This and although it received huge
commercial success (it went platinum), Courtney Love was forced
to relive her nightmare when the groups bassist, Kristen Pfaff
overdosed on heroin.
Once again Courtney endured the pain and continued to make a name for
herself. She decided to take up acting once again and starred in
blockbuster movies such as Feeling Minnesota, The People vs. Larry Flynt
and Man on the Moon, starring opposite Jim
Courtney's love life has not been flailing since her husband's tragic
death either. She has been linked to rockers Billy Corgan of Smashing
Pumpkins, Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails, Evan Dando
of The Lemonheads, actor Edward
Norton, and is currently attached to music executive Jim Barber.
Courtney Love is continually shocking
her fans by throwing concerts dressed like a streetwalker one day and
appearing at the Golden Globe's dressed in haute couture the next. Call
her what you will, but it's evident that this blonde sensation won't be
fading away anytime soon.
