Frances Bean Cobain Asks Lana Del Rey Not to Romanticize an Early Death

She has personal experience with it after all...
As we've previously reported, Lana Del Rey raised quite a few eyebrows when she did an interview with the Guardian where she said "I wish I was dead already." Del Rey was speaking about her idols such as Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse and when asked if that kind of early passing had some kind of romanticized appeal, she reportedly delivered the controversial response.
Del Rey has taken aim at the interviewer, claiming that the question was leading, but that hasn't stopped Cobain's daughter from addressing the situation. Frances Bean Cobain posted to Twitter in a message that has since been deleted:
The death of young musicians isn't something to romanticise. I'll never know my father because he died young and it becomes a desirable feat because people like you think it's ‘cool'. Well, it's fucking not. Embrace life, because you only get one life.
She later posted the following in response to fans assuming that she was attacking Del Rey:
I'm not attacking anyone. I have no animosity towards Lana, I was just trying to put things in perspective from personal experience.
