Lana Del Rey’s controversial interview with the Guardian last week just won’t seem to disappear and its all been kicking off again today as daughter of Kurt Cobain, Frances Bean attacked the singer for glamourising artists that die young.
But now, the West Coast hitmaker has been quick to reassure the Nirvana front man’s daughter, insisting she did not say she liked the late Kurt Cobain because he died young but because of his music.

In the interview which hit headlines last week after Lana accused journalist Tim Jonze of “hiding sinister ambitions” she said that she wished she was “dead already” which, understandably, didn’t go down too well with Frances who’s father famously committed suicide in 1994.
Today, in a message to Lana, Frances said: "I'll never know my father because he died young & it becomes a desirable feat because ppl like u think it's 'cool'."
Lana has since gone on to clarify her comments, explaining: “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."
Journalist Tim Jonez posted a two-minute clip from his interview with the songstress after she accused him of twisting her words, proving everything that was written was indeed said by the star.
Lana’s latest album Ultraviolence topped the Official UK Album charts last weekend, outselling her nearest competitor, Linkin Park’s The Hunting Party by two copies to one.
