Courtney Love recently shared a vintage holiday photograph of herself, then-husband Kurt Cobain and daughter Frances on Instagram, thanking the Nirvana frontman for giving her their daughter, "the gift that makes life worth living."
Love says the image represents a moment when she was "on top of the world," calling Cobain "the greatest true love I've ever experienced in my life."
That Christmas moment in everyones lives that you never forget, the one that makes you feel on top of the world, where the greatest gifts are the loved ones you shared that moment with. Well this is mine, I'm grateful to have ever experienced that moment. Merry Christmas Kurt, the greatest true love I've ever experienced in my life. You gave me the gift that makes life worth living, our incredibly talented, loving, beautiful and gifted daughter Frances Bean Cobain. Merry Christmas Bean, love mom and dad
The musician also posted an Instagram selfie "snuggling with Princess or now General Leia herself," Carrie Fisher, calling their visit the "best way to wrap up the Christmas evening."
"It's so hard for rock and roll right now — it's so hard," the singer told Humanity in June. "I have someone really close to me who is in a rock band and they're excellent — they're the best rock band I've heard in years — and they signed an old-school deal with Interscope. But it's really a struggle and it's a struggle just to be middle class. I'm not talking big houses and art collections. I'm talking about just getting by."
She also talked about switching her creative focus to acting over music. "In rock and roll, it's really about being as vulnerable as possible and giving them what they want," Love said. "But onstage it's about pausing, about internal life, it's about internal triggers — that's one of the reasons I'm really challenged to do a play."
