Kurt Cobain’s daughter Frances Bean has taken to Twitter to tell Lana Del Rey to stop romanticising the premature death of musicians.
Lana recently gave an interview and when asked by the interviewer as to whether she finds the deaths of music heroes such as Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse glamorous, she replied: “I don’t know. Ummm, yeah … I don’t want to have to keep doing this but I am.”
Understandably so, Frances was compelled to call the singer out on her views:
“@LanaDelRey the death of young musicians isn’t something to romanticize (cont)… I’ll never know my father because he died young & it becomes a desirable feat because ppl like u think it’s ‘cool'(cont)… Well, it’s f**king not. Embrace life, because u only get one life. The ppl u mentioned wasted that life.Don’t be 1 of those ppl…@LanaDelRey ur too talented to waste it away. (sic).”
Frances has since deleted her tweet and replaced it with: “I’m not attacking anyone. I have no animosity towards Lana, I was just trying to put things in perspective from personal experience.”
Lana replied to Frances late last night saying: “It’s all good. He was asking me a lot about your dad. I said I liked him because he was talented, not because he died young. The other half of what I said wasn’t really related to the people he mentioned. I don’t find that part of music glam either.”
We’re glad to see Lana talking sense at last!
