Frances Bean Cobain – daughter of the late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain – has added her voice to the debate surrounding Lana Del Rey's controversial interview with The Guardian in which she said "I wish I was dead already".

Del Rey has distanced herself from the interview in which she spoke about her idols, Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse. When it was noted that the common link between the pair were their premature deaths, Del Rey responded: "I wish I was dead already."

Today (June 23), Frances Bean Cobain (pictured above) took to her Twitter account to address Del Rey's comments. In a tweet that's since been deleted but was reported by FasterLouder, she wrote: “The death of young musicians isn’t something to romanticise. 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 fucking not. Embrace life, because you only get one life.”
