Frances Bean Cobain may be engaged, according to her Facebook page. The 19-year-old daughter of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love recently changed her status on the site to "engaged," suggesting that she is planning to marry her boyfriend, Isaiah Silva of the rock band the Rambles.

Of course, this could all be a weird joke on Cobain's part. For one thing, both Cobain and Silva use silly aliases on the site – Frances Rachel Leigh Cook and David Berkowitz-Cusack, respectively. Bean alluded to an impending wedding in several Facebook posts, but the two recently reverted their status from "engaged."

Cobain, who is estranged from her mother, has become something of a muse for fashion designers recently. She has also tested the waters for a career in music, singing on a track called "My Space" by Evelyn Evelyn, a side project of Dresden Dolls singer Amanda Palmer.

“Bleeding Love”

Leona Lewis | 2007

In 2008, The X Factor winner Leona Lewis backed up her U.K. singing competition victory with an R&B anthem for the ages: "Bleeding Love," an international hit that became the best-selling song of the year. The track was co-penned by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder (whose radio dominance would continue with songs such as Beyonce's "Halo" and Adele's "Rumour Has It") and solo artist Jesse McCartney, who was inspired by a former girlfriend, Gossip Girl actress Katie Cassidy. Given the song's success, McCartney didn't regret handing over such a personal track: "No, no," he said. "I'm so happy for Leona. She deserves it. There are really no bad feelings."
