Kurt Cobain's daughter Frances Bean Cobain chided Lana Del Rey via Twitter, after the singer said in a recent interview "I wish I was dead already" and spoke of her admiration of the music world's so-called "27 Club."

The club refers to famous musicians who died -- often from drug and alcohol abuse or suicide -- at age 27, including Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Brian Jones, Amy Winehouse and Cobain's father.

"The death of young musicians isn't something to romanticize," Frances Bean Cobain wrote. "... I'll never know my father because he died young & it becomes a desirable feat because ppl like u think it's 'cool.'"

"Well, it's (expletive) not," Cobain added." Embrace life, because you only get one life. The ppl u mentioned wasted that life. Don't be 1 of those ppl.

Because it's the Internet, a number of Del Rey's fans responded with venom at Cobain.

According to E!, the daughter of the late Nirvana frontman responded by saying, "I'm not attacking anyone. I have no animosity towards Lana, I was just trying to put things in perspective from personal experience."

She also wrote, "I told her to not waste her life. How is that attacking. I literally said embrace this life because u only get 1."

Cobain then sent a message to Del Rey, writing "Ur too talented to waste it away."

The Grammy nominated singer responded "It's all good. (The interviewer) was asking me a lot about your dad I said I liked him because he was talented not because he died young ... the other half of what I said wasn't really related to the people he mentioned/ I don't find that part of music glam either."

E! reported that "Girls" creator Lena Dunham tweeted "Why is anyone shocked Lana Del Rey said she wished she was dead? That's an actual lyric on her last album: 'I wish I was dead.'"
