Frances Bean Cobain, Kurt Cobain’s daughter, tweeted Sunday that she wasn’t trying to “attack anyone” after she responded to an interview in which Lana del Rey was quoted as saying that she wished she was dead.

Instead, Cobain wrote, “I'm not attacking anyone. I have no animosity towards Lana, I was just trying to put things in perspective from personal experience.”

In an interview with The Guardian, del Ray talked about her heroes, Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse, and said, “I wish I was dead already.” When the writer responded that she shouldn’t say that, del Ray said, “I do! I don’t want to have to keep doing this. But I am.”

When she saw the interview, Cobain responded by tweeting, “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—ing 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."

Cobain caught flack from some of del Ray’s fans, so she stepped up to clarify what she was trying to say.

Del Ray had already tweeted out her regret that she said what she did, and accused the Guardian writer of leading the interview in that direction with questions about death, Rolling Stone said. Those tweets have since been deleted from del Ray’s account.

Cobain, the lead singer and songwriter for Nirvana, died in April 1994 of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic told Reason TV that Cobain was “sensitive, and then it was the drug abuse.”

“He was under a lot of pressure,” Novoselic said. “And he made a bad choice. He was probably pretty ripped when he decided to do what he did. If he would have had a clear mind, he wouldn’t have done that.”
