In a recent interview with "The Guardian", Lana Del Rey dropped this quote: "I wish I was dead already." She was talking about her favorite musicians, including Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse. The interviewer noted that they died early, and asked Lana if she perceived an early death as being glamorous.
She said, "I don't know. Um, yeah, I do, I don't want to have to keep doing this. But I am, That's just how I feel. If it wasn't that way, then I wouldn't say it. I'd be scared if I knew [death] was coming, but . . ." She didn't finish.
Those quotes didn't sit well with Kurt's 21-year-old daughter Frances Bean Cobain. She Tweeted, "Lana, the death of young musicians isn't something to romanticize. 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 [effing] not. Embrace life, because you only get one life. The people you mentioned wasted that life."
For what it's worth, Lana does seem to regret saying what she said.
When the interview began making the rounds, Lana fired off some angry Tweets about how she was somehow baited into saying that, and that the interviewer had, "sinister ambitions."
She did not deny saying what she said, though, and that's good because, in defending the interview, the writer posted the audio of Lana's comments. (You can check it out, here. She drops the line at the 1:20 mark.)
Frances later Tweeted that she didn't mean to "attack" Lana, she just wanted to, "put things in perspective." She added that Lana is too talented to waste it.
And Lana is cool with that. She Tweeted back, "Frances, it's all good. He was asking me a lot about your dad, I said I liked him because he was talented, not because he died young. The other half of what I said wasn't really related to the people he mentioned. I don't find that part of music glam either."
