Love, lead singer of the band Hole, inspired girls everywhere
to pick up a guitar
and write about whatever
the hell they
want. She is one of the most influential female artists of the nineties, and her snarling, intelligent, lyrics, thrashing, faux-pop guitar
sound and fashion sense she herself has branded "kinderslut" still
resonates throughout today's alternative rock scene, most notably among girl bands.
Theories abound as to the true
circumstances of her husband Kurt
Cobain's death in 1994 and Courtney
is often accused of murdering, or having a hand in his demise.
After years of adoring both
Hole and Nirvana, I think this is probably the most absurd and laughable piece of bullshit doing
the rounds. Kurt
, ("I'm just
overwhelmed by the fact that I'm in love on this scale") but the pressures of addiction, fame and depression proved too much for him. He killed
himself - it's horrible, but don't deride an innocent
woman.. she loved him and I think he would
hate her to be blamed in any way for his passing.
is hounded by tabloids in the same way Peter
Doherty is, and she has fallen victim to drug addiction, especially in the aftermath
's death. However she now has custody of their
daughter Frances Bean, is due to release
a new album (How Dirty Girls Get Clean) soon and appears to slowly be learning to live with the loss of her husband
and her own problems.
is a fashion icon, a mother, a recovering addict, a star and one of the greatest musicians of our time. She is a true
inspiration. WE LOVE YOU!
