While trying to cut her teeth as a model and actress, Courtney Love founded the band Hole in 1989, the same year that she married Leaving Trains singer James Moreland. The two quickly split up, and then sparked up a relationship with Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain. The two dated for nearly two years before they became married in 1992. Unfortunately, Cobain would take his own life in April 1994. Love’s music and acting career would continue, however, and she’s still well known in the rock world today.
Madonna certainly didn’t need any musicians to boost her career as she was already one of the most famous musicians in the world, being dubbed “The Queen of Pop.” That hasn’t kept Madonna from keeping her love life mainly in the music world, though. Madonna has been linked to many different musicians, including Tupac Shakur, Stephen Bray and Lenny Kravitz. Certainly, though, she’ll be remembered more for her own music rather than who she’s hooked up with.
