Lana Del Rey tells Frances Bean Cobain she liked Kurt for talent, “not because he died young”

Sunday night, Kurt Cobain’s daughter Frances Bean Cobain voiced her opinion on Twitter, telling singer/songwriter Lana Del Rey, “The death of young musicians isn’t something to romanticize.” The tweets were in response to Del Rey’s recent interview with the Guardian, where the hipster demigoddess said, “I wish I was dead already”—a statement that seemed to be related to Del Rey’s earlier discussion of Kurt.

In response to Cobain’s tweets, Del Rey recently said she liked Kurt "because he was talented, not because he died young." She also went on to that she doesn’t find the death of young musicians to be “glam.”
