Kurt Cobain's daughter slams Lana Del Rey: 'Death isn't something to romanticize'

In a recent interview with The Guardian, Lana Del Rey said she wished she "was dead already," citing Amy Winehouse and Kurt Cobain as her heroes. Now, Kurt Cobain's daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, is speaking out against the singer's remarks.

"The death of young musicians isn't something to romanticize," Bean 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 then added that she "has no animosity towards Lana" and simply thinks she is "too talented to waste it away." For her part, Del Rey tweeted — and then deleted — a series of comments saying The Guardian's Tim Jonze, who conducted the interview, asked her "leading questions about death."
