Frances Bean For President

As a child of the early 1990's, it makes me very happy that Frances Bean Cobain (in the new Harper's Bazaar) seems so level-headed and smart and funny. And let's not even talk about the cuteness. Doesn't everyone my age remember when she was a baby? And didn't we all worry about her in the aftermath of all the drama?

"These people are fascinated by me, but I haven't done anything," Frances says. "I'm famous by default. I came out of the womb and people wanted to know who I was because of my parents. If you're a big Nirvana fan, a big Hole fan, then I understand why you would want to get to know me, but I'm not my parents. People need to wait until I've done something valid with my life."

Oh, thank god. I literally can remember looking at her and thinking "well, I'm not gonna get too attached to that one".

Good for you, Frances Bean!
