A lot of people probably expected Frances Bean Cobain, the daughter of Courtney Love and the late Kurt Cobain, to end up fucked up like her parents. Surprisingly, that hasn’t happened, and she seems to have a pretty good head on her shoulders and doesn’t suffer fools gladly. Case in point? She’s sorta sick of Lana Del Rey’s melodramatic bullshit about wanting to be dead and thinks she needs to take a serious dose of STFU with all this “I wish I was dead” crap she’s been spewing lately and her obsession with death throughout her music.
I mean, obviously Frances is going to react to shit like this more given what she’s gone through in her life. That being said, I agree with her. There seems to be this whole hipster movement over the past five years or so in which it seems dreamy and artistic to be morbidly obsessed with death and oblivion and to use that obsession to sorta drift out into the ether and be an asshole. It’s corny as shit, and Lana Del Rey is queen of that movement.
Frances Bean Cobain is totally underrated, I gotta say. I love the fact that someone who could be getting a shit ton of press by virtue of who she is just shuns that and lives her life like a normal human being. Love her… and those fierce eyebrows.
Though summer’s technically not over, I think it’s time to take a look back at everything that happened these summer months. There was a LOT. What do you think was the most shocking? The most WTF? The best fashion moment? Let’s vote!

This isn’t really a new story – I swear Courtney Love‘s been telling this tall tale (because I really don’t believe it’s true) for years. Anyway, Frances Bean was apparently offered Kristen Stewart’s role of Bella in the Twilight films when she was only 13 (uh…) but she turned it down because even at that age, she knew it was a “sexist, Mormon piece of shit”. LOL!
Courtney and Frances have had a pretty strained relationship over the years, but Courtney likes to go on little brag sessions about Frances every once in a while like she’s a model parent and super proud of her. Maybe she is proud of Frances – after all, it takes a lot of skill not to go down the path your parents did.
From The Howard Stern Show:
“When she was 13 she was offered Twilight. She was offered Bella in Twilight… That’s a true story.”
“Somebody just saw a picture of her in a magazine, and sent me this script for Twilight. She was like, ‘That’s a sexist, Mormon piece of shit.’ She was 13. It would have destroyed her life.”
“I’m really good with my daughter right now. We’re really good.”
Oh, lord. I suppose that makes sense considering they haven’t seen each other in person for three years. Much easier to get along with someone when you don’t have to spend any time with them. Watch Courtney spinning her tales below:
