Frances Bean Cobain to Lana Del Rey: Don't Romanticize the Death of Young Musicians

Originally posted 06/24/2014 10:45AM

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.)

Kurt Cobain's Death, 20 Years Later: Photos, Art and a Video Tour of His Childhood Home

Originally posted 04/05/2014 08:15AM

Kurt Cobain died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound on April 5, 1994.

The Nirvana frontman's suicide was an epochal event for most of Generation X and has resurfaced in the news recently with newly released photographs of the singer's death scene.

But Cobain continues to live on through his music. As long as there are musicians, there will be new interpretations of Nirvana songs, and as long as there are young people, there will be an appreciation for Cobain's raw pathos and deft hand with melody.

To commemorate his life are these photos – including art Cobain did as a child – and the video above.

The photos are from Life's new tribute volume, Remembering Kurt Cobain: 20 Years Later, which is now available on newsstands and in bookstores everywhere.

The video is from journalist and Nirvana fan Dave Seminara, who takes viewers through the Aberdeen, Wash., home where Cobain spent most of his youth.
