Lana Del Rey Responds to Criticism over Seemingly ‘Romanticizing’ Death
We previously reported that singer Lana Del Rey was called out by the late Kurt Cobain’s daughter, Frances Bean, via Twitter following a controversial U.K. interview in which the singer seemingly romanticized the deaths of young musicians. Well, Lana has since responded and all seems well between the two ladies for now.
The “Video Games” sensation came under fire from Frances Bean Cobain earlier this week after talking about the premature passing of artists like the Nirvana frontman and Amy Winehouse in an article for Britain’s The Guardian newspaper.
The 21-year-old took aim at Del Rey in a post on Twitter, writing:
“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 f**king not. Embrace life, because you only get one life.”
Replying to her tweet, Lana wrote:
“It’s all good. He (the reporter) 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.”
Del Rey has already accused reporter Tim Jonze of asking “sinister” questions about death, and she was quick to respond to Cobain.
Jonze has since published sounds bites from his interview with the singer, and in a follow-up article, wrote, “(Del Rey) seems annoyed by the fact I wanted her to say interesting things and asked questions that caused her to do so. Well sorry, Lana, but that’s just me doing my job.”
