Frances Bean Cobain to Lana Del Rey: Don’t waste your life like my dad

Frances Bean Cobain Now 2014

Earlier this month, Lana Del Rey concerned many by saying she thought Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse’s young deaths were glamorous. Among those who read the interview as one giant red flag was Kurt Cobain’s now-adult daughter, Frances Bean Cobain.

In a series of tweets to Lana on Sunday, Frances (aka @alka_seltzer666) cautioned the “death of young musicians isn’t something to romanticize.”

She added, “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… ur too talented to waste it away.”

Frances clarified to a Lana fan that she wasn’t trying to attack the Ultraviolence singer, “just trying to put things in perspective from personal experience.”

Lana responded to Frances this morning by saying, again, that her comments were forced by the reporter.

After the interview in question was published, Lana accused the reporter of having sinister goals with his questions about death and persona. However, she expressed similar sentiments in a separate interview with a New York Times reporter.
