Don’t Be Kurt: Frances Bean Cobain tells Lana Del Rey that dying young is not cool


Frances Bean Cobain has told Lana Del Rey to “embrace life.”

Del Rey made headlines last week for two different reasons: one for releasing what’s sure to be many’s 2014 Album of the Year in epic new record effort Ultraviolence, and two, by telling a Guardian reporter “I wish I was dead already.”

As Ultraviolence tops the charts, Del Rey has allegedly backtracked from those comments. But that didn’t stop Cobain, daughter of the late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, from responding to the comment via twitter early this morning.

It becomes a desirable feat because ppl like u think it’s ‘cool’ Well, it’s fucking not. Embrace life, because u only get one life. The ppl u mentioned wasted that life. Don’t be 1 of those ppl ur too talented to waste it away.”

Cobain followed that up with the following:
