Hayley Williams, Gerard Way defend Frances Bean Cobain on Twitter

At the premiere of the new Kurt Cobain documentary, Montage Of Heck, Tuesday night, Frances Bean Cobain, who’s usually pretty media shy, gave an unexpected and admirable speech.

“The reason I’ve been able to watch it six times is because of the film [director Brett Morgen] made,” Cobain said. “I didn’t know Kurt … He was a human being and I think that’s been lost within the romanticism and the myth of him and his story. What this movie will provide, hopefully, is a real understanding of who he was. And I feel like he’d be really proud to have this movie made about him. So I’d like to thank Brett a lot.”

According to Loudwire, however, Cobain’s speech wasn’t the only thing that made headlines. Some tabloid publications instead decided to fixate on the 22-year-old executive producer's appearance at the event. She responded to the rag journalism on Twitter saying, “Apparently, I’m not well because I dressed like mortician Addams last night and am pale? Okay media spin cycle, okay. #slownewsday.”

A number of prominent figures stood up for Cobain on Twitter, including Paramore frontwoman Hayley Williams. “I get psyched every time people don't understand how I dress,” Williams said to Cobain. “It's like they're congratulating you for being your own! Go you.”

Former My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way also chimed in, telling Cobain, “F the media and the sun.”
