After Frances Bean Cobain offered a personal plea to Lana Del Rey to stop romanticizing the death of a young rock star, the indie-pop songstress has responded.

Cobain’s comments were initially inspired by a recent interview that Del Rey gave in The Guardian in which she stated that she wished she was “dead already,” in reference to a conversation she was having about her favorite musicians — Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse.

Frances Bean Cobain reached out to Del Rey via Twitter, telling the vocalist that, “The death of young musicians isn’t something to romanticize.” She also added that Del Rey should “embrace life” and that she was “too talented to waste it.”

For her part, Del Rey responded to Cobain’s tweets, stating that her lure to Kurt Cobain was due to his talent and not because he died young. She added that she too doesn’t find the death appeal “glam either.” Check out Del Rey’s tweets below:
