Courtney Love

Courtney Love says Kurt Cobain wasn't the love of her life.The 'Hole' singer described the late Nirvana front man - the father of her 12-year-old daughter Frances Bean, who she was married to for two years - as"the best friend I ever had" but admits he could be mistrusting and hostile. She told POP magazine: "I think he did love me. But when you're dealing with someone who is that brilliant but is tortured you have to put up with a lot of misanthropic shit. "Love - who has previously drug and drink addictions - claims her one true love was actor Ed Norton. She explained: "He's been more of a daddy to Frances than Kurt ever was."The 42-year-old rocker appears in a series of raunchy semi-nude photographs in the latest edition of the magazine. However, Katie Grand, the editor-in-chief of POP, insists that is not what was initially intended. She said: "We didn't plan the shoot to be raunchy - we wanted to put her in couture - but she's such a big presence. In a couture dress she seemed stiff, so it ended up being quite naked."
