Frances Bean Cobain To Lana Del Rey: Stop Wishing You Were Dead Like My Father
In a recent interview, Lana revealed her heroes include Amy Winehouse and Kurt, who both died well before their time. Asked if she found their premature death glamorous, she told The Guardian, "I don't know. Ummm, yeah... I wish I was dead already."
She continued, "I don't want to have to keep doing this. But I am... That's just how I feel. If it wasn't that way, then I wouldn't say it. I would be scared if I knew [death] was coming, but…"
@LanaDelRey I'll never know my father because he died young & it becomes a desirable feat because ppl like u think it's "cool"(cont)— Frances Bean Cobain (@alka_seltzer666) June 23, 2014
Francis took exception and wrote on Twitter, "@LanaDelRey I'll never know my father because he died young & it becomes a desirable feat because ppl like u think it's 'cool.'
"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."
After receiving some flak Cobain tweeted, "I'm not attacking anyone. I have no animosity towards Lana, I was just trying to put things in perspective from personal experience."
@alka_seltzer666 it's all good. He was asking me a lot a out your dad I said I liked him because he was talented not because he died young-— Lana Del Rey (@LanaDelRey) June 23, 2014
Lana Del Rey took it all in stride, writing to Cobain, "It's all good. He was asking me a lot a out 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."
Del Rey previously slammed The Guardian for the interview, which made headlines for her morbid comments. In a series of deleted tweets, she wrote, "i regret trusting the guardian- i didn’t want to do an interview but the journalist was persistent, [The writer] Alexis 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. His leading questions about death and persona were calculated."
