Lana Del Rey Goes to Twitter to Defend her Comments on Kurt Cobain

Lana Del Rey has gone to Twitter to respond to comments made by Frances Bean Cobain yesterday in regards of “romanticizing death.” The daughter of the late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain tweeted: “I’ll never know my father because he died young and it becomes a desirable feat because people like you think it’s ‘cool,'” Bean wrote. “Well, it’s f—— not. Embrace life, because you only get one life.”

In an interview with the Guardian, Del Rey mentioned that “I wish I was dead already” which led Cobain to call her out. She later explained that her quotes were taken out of context. While she idolizes Kurt Cobain, she doesn’t like him because he died at 27.

“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-,” Del Rey tweeted. “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,” she added. 

“I’m not attacking anyone. I have no animosity towards Lana, I was just trying to put things in perspective from personal experience,” Cobain later tweeted
Lana Del Rey propelled into the spotlight after her appearance on Saturday Night Live. She is in the midst of promoting her new album Ultraviolence, which was released on June 13.
