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.

“Nightshift”

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
