What Do You Think of Frances Bean Cobain's Comments About Lana Del Rey?

Okay, long story short. Lana Del Rey did an interview with The Guardian in support of her new album Ultraviolence, where she said she wished she was dead already. She then said that the writer was ill-intentioned and sparked the ire (sorta, but not really) of Frances Bean Cobain, daughter of late Nirvana legend Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love.
LDR supposedly spoke about the late Cobain and the late Amy Winehouse when she made her comments. She later called writer Tim Jonze "sinister" and he said LDR "doesn't seem to know what she's actually complaining about," per WENN.
FBC took to Twitter to say that LDR romanticized death and stated, painfully so, that she will never know her father since he died young. What a heartbreaking statement, since it's true. We remember when FBC was born.
FBC tweeted: "Embrace life, because you only get one life." She did say she is not antagonizing anyone, just speaking from her personal experience.
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, 2014
Wow! Big words from FBC.
Incidentally, LDR recently spoke about Love, who is estranged from Frances Bean. She said, "Courtney Love's a big inspiration. I like her, I talk to her a lot. I just went (to) her show. When she was playing in London. I like people who are similar to her, like Joni Mitchell types or Stevie Nicks, who are both strong female characters."
What a bit of a tangled web here.
And for her part, LDR answered FBC:
@alka_seltzer666 it's all good. He was asking me a lot a out your dad I said I liked him because he was talented not because he died young-— Lana Del Rey (@LanaDelRey) June 23, 2014
So...Team LDR or Team FBC, even though they are not at war? It's more like Team LDR or Team LDR's comments.
