Frances Bean Cobain Tells Lana Dey Rey to ‘Embrace Life’

Moody chanteuse Lana Del Rey has become the female Morrissey, with her "heaven knows I'm miserable now" songs and statements to the Guardian romanticizing dying young. She was recently quoted saying that she wished she "was dead already." Although Lana later claimed she was set up by the British paper, that quote struck a nerve with Frances Bean Cobain, the daughter of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love. On Sunday night Francis Bean went on Twitter to react to those statements and remind the world that there was nothing romantic about her father dying young by his own hand.

In a string of tweets, France Bean attempted to set Lana straight.

@LanaDelRey the death of young musicians isn't something to romanticize (cont)

@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

Coban went on to say "it's f--cking not. Embrace life, because u only get one life," adding that the people Del Rey mentioned "wasted" their lives.

At least one Lana Del Rey fan seemingly took offense to Cobain's tweets and fired off her own missive to defend the singer, saying leave her alone: "Everyone wants to die sometimes, she was having a bad day.  She took it back."

Rather than get involved in a full-scale Twitter war, Frances Bean merely explained and restated her position and then threw in a compliment aimed at Lana Del Rey for good measure.

I'm not attacking anyone. I have no animosity towards Lana, I was just trying to put things in perspective from personal experience.

Hopefully, Lana will heed Frances Bean's words. The world doesn't need another rock star tragedy.
