Kurt Cobain's life story comes to life in 'Montage of Heck'

While his early life saw the late Kurt Cobain as a happy-go-lucky child with a profound creative talent, the years following his parents' divorce were nothing short of tempestuous for the young musician. Though still hungry for music, songwriting and drawing, Cobain developed struggles with anger and rejection throughout his teenage years, setting him up for a success that would ultimately bring about his downfall. And while it seemed his astonishing success with grunge pioneers Nirvana in the 90s was a high point in his life, not to mention his relationship with Courtney Love and the birth of their daughter Frances, it only led to a tragic end.

Lana Del Rollercoaster: Lana Del Rey has had a week she'll never forget. The pop star's new album, Ultraviolence, has been met with positivity by critics and has earned Del Rey her first Billboard 200 number one.

Decide for yourself here. Kurt Cobain's daughter, Frances Bean, lashed out at Lana over her words. Find out what went down.

Gary Oldman Blunder: Silly, silly Gary Oldman. The actor has earned himself a reputation as one of Hollywood's thinkers but his thoughts on political correctness caused a stir this week.

In an attempt to play down Gibson's words, Oldman ended up sounding an awful lot more anti-Semitic than his fellow actor. Find out what was said.

Lana Del Rey Frances Bean Cobain

Lana Del Rey has managed to land her first album to top the Billboard 200 with her new release, Ultraviolence. The follow-up to 2012's well-received Born To Die, the album, which was released June 17, sold 182,000 in the week ending June 22, according to Nielsen SoundScan, via Billboard.

The figure represents her best sales week yet and also the largest sales week for a female artist since the week ending Dec. 29, 2013, when Beyonce's self-titled a surprise release shifted 310,000 copies in its third week in the charts.

Although Born To Die was a commercial and critical success that put Del Rey firmly on the pop map, the highest position it could manage in the chart was second with 77,000 sold in its first week ending 5th February 2012. However, the album has since proven its longevity by surpassing one million sales as of February this year.
