Frances Bean Cobain Calls Out Lana Del Ray's 'Death Wish'

Kurt Cobain's daughter Frances Bean Cobain reacted to Lana Del Rey's controversial interview with The Guardian, in which she's quoted as saying 'I wish I was dead already.'

Frances broadcasted her reaction via Twitter, writing, "The death of young musicians isn't something to romanticize."

Frances' father famously took his own life at the age of 27.

"I'll never know my father because he died young, and it becomes a desirable feat because people like you think it's 'cool,'" Frances continued. "Well, it's f***ing not. Embrace life, because you only get one life. Don't be one of those people. You're too talented to waste it away."

Lana had already admitted that the interview did not come out as she intended, saying, "I regret trusting The Guardian. I didn't want to do an interview, but the journalist was president. [He] was masked as a fan, but was hiding sinister ambitions and angles. Maybe he's actually the boring one looking for something interesting to write about."

According to the interviewer, Guardian editor Tim Jonze, Lana was "delightful company" during their sit-down.

Frances later softened her reaction, tweeting, "I'm not attacking anyone. I have no animosity towards Lana. I was just trying to put things in perspective from personal experience."
