Courtney Love

It is hard to like Courtney Love. This drug-addled woman only piggybacked fame through her affiliation with the multi-talented now-dead singer of Nirvana, Kurt Cobain. Somehow, she managed to parlay this experience into record contracts (which she failed to fulfill) and movie parts. She looks like a Robert Crumb girl, acts like a crazy spoiled brat and spends her time trying to control the rights to unreleased Nirvana recordings. At least she had the good sense to pick a public fight with Madonna... or was she high at the time?
