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.

“Love Is the Answer”

Utopia | 1977

The message of the Beatles' "All You Need Is Love" proved to be a universal and long-lasting one, which Utopia revisited 10 years later on this ballad. "From a lyrical standpoint, it's part of a whole class of songs that I write, which are about filial love," Todd Rundgren explained. "I'm not a Christian, but it's called Christian love, the love that people are supposed to naturally feel because we are all of the same species. That may be mythical, but it's still a subject." Though "Love Is the Answer" wasn't a hit, a cover version two years later by England Dan & John Ford Coley peaked at Number Ten on the Billboard singles chart.
