She’s never been one to worry about public opinion, so when Lana Del Rey began waxing philosophical on the “death of young musicians,” it wasn’t long before she received backlash.

In fact, Frances Bean Cobain (daughter of the late Kurt Cobain) took issue with the “Video Games” vixen’s remarks in her interview with The Guardian.

Cobain tweeted, "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 f*cking not.”

"Embrace life, because you only get one life. The people you mentioned wasted that life. Don't be one of those people. You're too talented to waste it away,” added Frances, referring to her father as well as Amy Winehouse.

"I'm not attacking anyone. I have no animosity towards Lana. I was just trying to put things in perspective from personal experience."

Del Rey also shared some thoughts about the article- "I didn't want to do an interview, but the journalist was persistent. (He) was masked as a fan, but was hiding sinister ambitions and angles."

In relationship news, Lana also shot down rumors that she’s engaged to Barrie-James O’Neill, when in fact they broke up. “We are currently not together. He is a wonderful person. But there are some things with which he has to deal. I will not explain it in detail. This was hard on our relationship, I no longer felt free. We’ll see how it goes.”
