Frances Cobain BLASTS Lana Del Rey: Shut Up About My Dad!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

In a bizarre interview published last week, Lana Del Rey glamorized premature death, and hinted that she'd like to emulate her idols Amy Winehouse and Kurt Cobain by not living to see 30.

Naturally, a lot of people took offense to this mind-blowingly foolish statement, and one of the critics of Lana's comments knows all too well about the pain that can be caused by one person's reckless disregard for their own health and well-being.

Frances Cobain lost her father - legendary Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain - when she was just a year old.

The young artist was understandably upset by Lana's comments and has made her feelings clear on Twitter:

"@LanaDelRey the death of young musicians isn't something to romanticize," Cobain tweeted. "I'll never know my father because he died young & it becomes a desirable feat because people like you think it's 'cool.'"

"Well it's not," Cobain continued. "Embrace life, because you only get one life. The ppl you mentioned wasted that life."

Wow. Surprisingly insightful comments from 21-year-old  - particularly one partially raised by Cobain's notoriously troubled widow, Courtney Love.

Recently, a new note found at the scene of Cobain's death seemed to suggest that the marriage between the two singers was a deeply hostile one. 

Shortly thereafter, Love's father suggested she was involved in Cobain's death.

Needless, to say it remains an ugly situation more than 20 years after Cobain's death, so it's plain to see why Frances might object to someone romanticizing her troubled family.

It should be noted, however, that Lana has accused The Guardian of misquoting her in the controversial interview in question.

Whatever. Everyone has got fantasies they think twice about sharing. Just 'cuz someone decides to be vocal about one, everyone jumps on the 'shut up' bandwagon. People protest too much just to fit in. Not everyone is gonna be as fake as everybody else, although Lana did say a bit much, unless she was very badly misquoted.

Being misquoted? No tell me it isn't so. Lana needs a good talking too, or at least a good doctor if she said anything like they quoted.
