Love, the widow of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, has said previously that she would like to team up with the likes of Del Rey and Miley Cyrus.
“If it wasn’t for Miley, 2013 would’ve been a dull dreary year, she wrote on Twitter last year. “If you can’t agree with that, you’re an idiot.”
Former drug addict Love, now 50, also mentioned the possibility of collaborating with Del Rey because her “distinctive voice might sound cool if it was the right song”.
Back in 2012, Love schooled Del Rey on the meaning of Nirvana’s “Heart Shaped Box”, explaining in no uncertain terms that it was “about [her] vagina”.
“You do know the song is about my vagina right?,” she tweeted. “'Throw down your umbilical noose so I can climb right back,' umm...On top which some of the lyrics about my vagina I contributed. So umm next time you sing it, think about my vagina will you?'”

Earlier this year Del Rey told the Guardian that she “wishes she was dead” and dying young is “glamourous”, prompting Frances Bean Cobain, Love’s daughter, to argue on Twitter that “the death of young musicians isn’t something to romanticize”.
“I’ll never know my father because he died young and it becomes a desirable feat because people like you think it’s ‘cool’,” she posted to Del Rey.
“Well, it’s f**king not. Embrace life, because you only get one life.”
Cobain died from a self-inflicted shotgun wound at his Seattle home twenty years ago.Reuse content
