Courtney Love is the crazy widow of Kurt Cobain. She sings badly and has been in a few relationships since his sad suicide.

Courtney Love may have been implicated in Kurt Cobain's death by none other than her own father, but she's never been charged with anything, and she was still his wife at the time of his death, which means Courtney controls (and profits from) Cobain's estate and the use of his likeness.

Sadly, it also means that when the inevitable Kurt Cobain biographical film gets made (you knew it was coming), Courtney will not only cash in big time, she'll also play a part in the creative process.

In fact, the film is currently in the very early stages of pre-production and Courtney is already exerting her will on producers.

By her own admission, Courtney has shoehorned her way into the casting process, which allows her to peruse an endless selection of "blonde, gorgeous 25-year-olds." No, really. She said that:

Courtney Love turns 50 next month, and while her life has been a rollercoaster ride of ups and downs and highs and...more highs, somehow she's reached the half-decade mark looking no worse for wear.

In fact, the First Lady of Grunge somehow looks better than she has in years!

Courtney Love Swimsuit Photo

Love posted the above photo to Instagram yesterday and from the looks of it, decades of junkiedom...does a body good?

As for how it's possible that Love is in this good of a shape after the life she's lived, your guess is as good as ours.

Lindsay Lohan is about half her age, and she's already sagging in ways we never thought possible.

Just as unexpected as her trim figure is the strange resurgence in popularity Love has enjoyed in the past few weeks:

Frances Cobain wants Lana Del Rey to shut up, but the "Shades of Cool" singer apparently has no plans to stop making bizarre comments about the first family of grunge.

Last week, Lana wished she was dead so that she could be more like her idol Kurt Cobain.Today, she stated that she not only draws inspiration from Kurt's troubled widow Courtney Love, she also counts the former Hole singer among her closest friends.

"Courtney Love's a big inspiration," said Lana in a recent interview. "I like her. I talk to her a lot...I just went to her show when she was playing in London.

Well, if Lana is trying to make nice with Frances, buddying up with her estranged mom is probably the wrong way to go about it.

When '90s grunge and R&B collide ... you get an epically random but awesome selfie of Courtney Love and Mariah Carey, who hung out in Cannes, France.

The rock star, 49, and pop diva, 44, found time to gush over each other while attending the Clear Channel Media dinner at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc.

"Love u @MariahCarey xxx," Courtney Love wrote via Instagram.

Carey retweeted the frame-worthy picture and replied: "x0x0."

Courtney Love, Mariah Carey

Wednesday, the Hole frontwoman was interviewed at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity during the Legends of Music Seminar event.

Carey, meanwhile, just released her new album Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse ... and tried to pass off a Mariah Carey selfie from 1997 as a current shot.

No word on whether Love and Carey would ever collaborate musically, but that would be a can't-miss video on YouTube if ever there were one.

In the meantime, add them to our classic celebrity selfies gallery:

What's in a name? As it turns out, maybe everything.

Since Shakespeare first posited the question in Romeo and Juliet, actors have been using fake names to land professional roles. Not only did it allow them some semblance of privacy before the dawn of Wikipedia, but let's face it, some people just aren't born with great names.

Ella Maria Lani Yelich-O'Connor? Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta? Quite a mouthful.

If an actor or musician's entire career is dedicated to being someone else - a character or personality, perhaps - then a good stage name can go a long way to making that career explode.

More celebrities use pseudonyms than you might think. In fact, here are 67 stars who don't use their real names. Which ones did you know before viewing this gallery?

Musical sensation Lorde was given the name Ella Maria Lani Yelich-O'Connor at birth. We'd probably go with Lorde, too.

Yesterday, new evidence emerged from the scene of Kurt Cobain's suicide over 20 years ago. 

Though the second Cobain suicide note offers little in the way of new insights into the case, it has re-opened the debate over whether the iconic singer's death was, in fact, a suicide.

One theorist who holds the belief that Courtney Love - Cobain's infamous wife - was involved in his death is none other than Love's father, Hank Harrison.

In an interview with Radar Online Harrison claimed today that he has evidence of Love's involvement in the murder of her husband.

"No doubt she was capable," Harrison says of his daughter. "I can't prove she pulled the trigger, but I can prove her involvement to a high degree of certainty."

A note found at the scene of Kurt Cobain's death was made public by Seattle police today, revealing some unkind final words directed at the Nirvana frontman's infamous wife, Courtney Love.

Kurt Cobain Suicide Note

Scribbled on stationery from the Phoenix Hotel in San Francisco, the note was disclosed by police following a recent re-opening of the investigation into Cobain's 1994 suicide.

Courtney likely wishes it had stayed hidden.

"Do you Kurt Cobain take Courtney Michelle Love to be your lawfully shredded wife," reads one scathing portion. "Even when she's a b!tch with zits and siphoning all yr money for doping and whoring."

Not exactly a love poem, but many have pointed out that there is no way of determining when the note was written or if the heroin-addicted singer was in his right mind at the time.

Man, it must REALLY suck to be rich! All that money and absolutely NO IDEA what to do with it! That's IT! Spend it all in one place, just like your mama said NOT to do!

While this certainly happens to regular people, when it happens to celebrities it's pretty epic. Watching stars who bring in millions and millions per picture have no money at all is sort of weird.

And yet, it happens. Often. Celebs file bankruptcy like some of us change our underwear. Maybe they wouldn't have to file bankruptcy if they bought normal-priced underwear?

Anyway.

Here are 15 stars who went broke (some will surprise you, some won't), because having a lot of money doesn't mean they know how to spend it wisely.

Why didn't we just ask Courtney Love for help before?

She's clearly found Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 ... or at least she has a pretty good lead on it. Just check out the evidence she posted on Twitter this week.

This is some compelling stuff here, you gotta admit:

Courtney Love Finds Malaysia Airlines Flight 370

Wow. It COULD NOT BE more obvious than that, right?

To think, 25 countries, 43 ships and 58 aircraft have searched for over nine days to find any sign of the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, coming up empty.

Yet as soon as Courtney Love was on the case? BAM.

How did she do what every major nation couldn't?
