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!

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:


Despite not recording any new music or…really doing anything else newsworthy in the past decade or so, Love has managed to make headlines recently, though not always for the best reasons.

Earlier this week, Lana Del Rey said Love is her “inspiration” and Courtney must’ve really enjoyed hearing that she’s still so relevant to the world of modern music.  

Prior to that, however, Love’s father accused her of murdering Kurt Cobain. We’re guessing that one didn’t feel as good.

But however you feel about her, there’s no denying that Courtney is doing something right. (Deal with the Devil? Yeah, that’s gotta be it.)

We wish her the best and hope she hangs on for another 50 years. Just maybe skip the swimsuit seflies once you’re creeping up on triple digits, okay?
