Frances Bean Cobain, the daughter of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love, responded to Lana Del Rey’s comments that seemed to glorify the idea of dying young.

Frances Bean Cobain Says Dying Young Isn't 'Cool'

Earlier this month, Del Rey was promoting her newest album Ultraviolence when she claimed to wish she were dead in an interview with The Guardian. "I wish I was dead already," Del Rey said after naming both Amy Winehouse and Kurt Cobain as her musical heroes and responding, “I don’t know. Ummm, yeah,” when asked if she thought early death was glamorous. When the interviewer protested, Del Rey insisted that she truly did wish she were dead already.

“I don't want to have to keep doing this. But I am,” she said. Clarifying what she no longer wants to be doing, she added, “Everything. 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 …"

Days after the interview was published, Cobain took to Twitter to tell Del Rey how she felt about her comments regarding the early deaths of famous musicians – and Del Rey's hope for that for herself.

“The death of young musicians isn't something to romanticize. I'll never know my father because he died young & it becomes a desirable feat because ppl like u think it's ‘cool,’" Cobain wrote. "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.”

Upon posting the series of tweets, Cobain was accused of attacking Del Ray. In response, Cobain defended her reaction and claimed to have no animosity towards the "Video Games" singer.
