Senior Content Editordefuse the hype. "The death of young musicians isn't something to romanticize," she explained. "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. The people you mentioned wasted that life. Don't be one of those people. You're too talented to waste it away." These initial tweets sparked outrage from Lana's fans. One fan even responded, "leave [Lana] the fuck alone." This prompted the self-proclaimed Goth Wino to clarify her statement:
I'm not attacking anyone. I have no animosity towards Lana, I was just trying to put things in perspective from personal experience. — Frances Bean Cobain (@alka_seltzer666) June 23, 2014Lana's statement stemmed from an interview to promote her new record, Ultraviolence, and the singer has said she already regrets her choice of words. Although she has since deleted her tweets, Lana blames her interviewer at The Guardian for asking "leading questions about death and persona." "I regret trusting The Guardian," Lana said. "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. Maybe he's actually the boring one looking for something interesting to write about." The interviewer in question, Guardian editor Tim Jonze, later contradicted Lana's statement, saying she was "delightful company" to keep during the interview process. What do you guys think? Is this just another way for Lana to get publicity for her new album, or is this just another celebrity feud best left to the tabloids?
