Courtney Love (born 1964) is an American singer and actress. Combining
uninhibited live performances with confrontational lyrics, she was
prolific in the punk and grunge scenes of the 1990s as the frontwoman of
the alternative rock band Hole, which she formed in 1989. She was
married to Kurt Cobain, frontman for Nirvana, until his suicide in 1994.
Hole’s second release, Live Through This (1994), achieved critical
accolades and multi-platinum sales. In 1995, Love earned a Golden Globe
Award nomination for her performance in The People vs. Larry Flynt
(1996). Hole’s third album, Celebrity Skin (1998), was nominated for
multiple Grammy Awards. After roles in the big-budget pictures Man on
the Moon (1999) and Trapped (2002), she released her first solo album,
America’s Sweetheart (2004). She was sentenced to a rehabilitation
facility in 2005 on drug charges. She returned to the music industry
with Nobody’s Daughter (2010), a Hole album, but without any members of
the original lineup. In 2014 and 2015, she released two solo singles and
returned to acting in the network series Empire and Sons of Anarchy.

Wikiquote quote of the day:
The man who forgets does not forgive, he only loses the
remembrance of the harm inflicted on him; forgiveness is the offspring
of a feeling of heroism, of a noble heart, of a generous mind, whilst
forgetfulness is only the result of a weak memory, or of an easy
carelessness, and still oftener of a natural desire for calm and
quietness. Hatred, in the course of time, kills the unhappy wretch who
delights in nursing it in his bosom.
