Love had a brief solo career between 2003 and 2006 after the breakup of Hole, releasing the album America's Sweetheart (2004), which received decidedly mixed reviews. In 2009, Love reformed Hole as the sole returning member, a decade after the original band had broken up, and released Nobody's Daughter (2010), which was met with generally positive critical acclaim. In 2012, Love renounced the Hole moniker, stating that she was writing new material under own name. In May 2013, Love booked a summer tour across North America.
Love also had an intermittent acting career, first debuting in Alex Cox's cult films Sid and Nancy (1986) and Straight to Hell (1987) before she was an established musician. She returned to acting with a lead role in Milos Forman's The People vs. Larry Flynt (1996), which earned her unanimous critical acclaim and a Golden Globe nomination for her portrayal of Althea Flynt. Love has also had endeavors in art and fashion; in 2012, she debuted a gallery titled "And She's Not Even Pretty".
Love, who grew up primarily in Oregon, is the daughter of psychotherapist Linda Carroll, and writer and ex-Grateful Dead manager Hank Harrison. Love was married to Kurt Cobain, frontman of the grunge band Nirvana, with whom she has a daughter, Frances Bean Cobain. Throughout her career, Love's wild stage antics and subversive feminist attitude have polarized audiences and critics, and she was referred to by Rolling Stone as "the most controversial woman in the history of rock."
