Courtney Love laments being a single mom

The challenge of raising a teenaged daughter in the glare of the celebrity spotlight is only magnified when you’re doing it alone, Courtney Love says. The single mother to 15-year-old Frances Bean, called ‘Franny’ by her mom, says that she and her daughter "get along fine most of the time" but,

Teenagers are hard.  Being a single mom is hard.

Courtney, 43, says that she’s encouraged by the traits her daughter has inherited from both she and her late husband Kurt Cobain, who committed suicide in 1994.

I just want things to be good for her, but she’s a lot like me and a lot like her dad. I think she got the best of both of us, so there’s that.

A recent outing for Frances proved to be a painful reminder of the manner in which she lost her dad, however. According to Courtney, Frances and a friend hit the streets of London — for the first time without a nanny or bodyguard — to see the new film Control, about the suicide of Joy Division lead singer Ian Curtis. Recalled a tearful Courtney,

I wanted to get her a cake because it is the first time she has gone anywhere on her own…She came back so disturbed, because I forgot what the movie was about.

Frances is Courtney’s only child.
