Lana Del Rey and Courtney Love just announced a joint 2015 tour. This was immediately interesting to the media because over the summer, Courtney’s daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, called Lana out via Twitter after Lana expressed that she wished she were dead already in an interview with The Guardian.
