Indie chanteuse Lana Del Rey has been giving increasingly controversial interviews leading up to the release of her second album, Ultraviolence.
For starters, she declared feminism "not an interesting concept [for me]" in an interview with The Fader.
But it was recent comments she made to The Guardian that have the singer's name trending across the Internet; she told the U.K. paper, "I wish I was dead already," a statement that earned a response from one person who knows a little too much about musicians dying young: Kurt Cobain's daughter, Frances Bean. (The Guardian notes that Del Rey's statement was made during a discussion of Amy Winehouse and Kurt Cobain.)
