Frances Bean Cobain, the daughter of the frontman of the iconic band Nirvana, Kurt Cobain, shared a video in her official Instagram stories opening up about her opinions on the current political environment and the presidential election of the U.S.
Frances Bean Cobain is known for her modeling career which she started at the young age of 14 when she was photographed for Elle Magazine. Later on, she appeared in Harper’s Bazaar and became the face of Marc Jacobs. Cobain also debuted a collection of artwork titled ‘Scumfuck’ at the La Luz de Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles.
Besides her modeling career and artworks, Frances Bean Cobain is also quite an active social media user, especially on her official Instagram account in which she has nearly 1,5 million followers. Cobain often shares gorgeous selfies, throwback pictures, and her artwork.
While she usually does not share her personal opinions on her official Instagram account, Frances Bean Cobain recently opened up about the presidential election in her official Instagram stories and revealed the reason why she believes this election, specifically, is the most important one. Cobain also stressed the importance of issues like climate change and science, while explaining how we can change things and undo the damage.
Here is what Cobain said:
“Welcome to my Ted talk. It’s gonna be a short one. I try not to use this platform to tell people what to do ’cause ultimately I don’t actually believe in the concept that people are gonna listen to anyone ’cause people do whatever it is they wanna do. That’s fine.
I’m gonna use my platform, my energy, and my time to talk about why I believe this is the election of our lifetime. I believe this is the election of our lifetime because we are entering a very small window of opportunity to acknowledge what’s happening to our planet and society and our relationship with each other as Americans and human beings.
This election plays a huge part in that, it plays a huge part in our ability to reverse the damage that we have done as a country.”
“I just hope people find within themselves to recognize that this is an opportunity to instill just a little bit of good back into the constructs of what this country is.
It’s not perfect, it’s not flawless, and it’s not gonna eradicate all the systemic problems that are not bedded in the history of this country and the current climate of this country but it is better than voting for somebody who openly promotes hate, inequality, denial of science, denial of climate change, denial of truth. So that is my Ted talk. I hope you vote in favor of moving progress forward.”
