Clay Aiken, move over. There's a new Broadway baby on the horizon.
Frances Bean Cobain, 15, the daughter of Courtney Love and late grunge legend Kurt Cobain, is headlining as the star of Evita, Grease and Beauty and the Beast – all for a fashion spread in the March issue of Harper's Bazaar.
Still, the backdrops are appropriate, says her mother. "Frances grew up on musicals. I think musicals comfort her," Love, 43, tells the magazine. "She's a gay man trapped in a woman's body, like me."

Courtney Love may be looking to buy a home in the Big Apple, according to her MySpace blog.
"I think/hope we found the PERFECT PLACE," Love wrote Wednesday in an online entry rife with spelling errors.
The Hole singer is eyeing a four-story West Village home, which she says is "a great investment."
Love says two floors of the building are currently being rented by the owners, but she'd eventually like to make it into a single-family home again. "It'll cost … a lot … to return it to a house, but FBC (Love's 15-year-old daughter, Frances Bean) doesn't need to have all that space 'til she moves here at 18."
It's not clear from the blog entry if Love, who currently splits her time between L.A. and London, plans to live in the home as well.

She may be known for her wild antics and trouble with the law but Courtney Love is trying her best for daughter Frances Bean.
Love, 43, says in a new U.K. magazine interview that she recently let 15-year-old Franny (as she calls her) go out alone with a daughter of rocker Sting – only to find out it was to see a film about suicide.
