The last time we heard from Lana Del Rey on Twitter July 30, but none of the tweets were actually of any substance rather than to promote her album "Ultraviolence."

Promotional tweets and favorites are of course a staple for artists on Twitter, but even so many artists take to the social media accounts to interact with fans. Ever so often there will be an issue that arises causing an artist to take a hiatus from social media.

One example is Jason Segel, who quit Twitter over a burrito vs. sandwich debate.

Frances Bean Cobain took to Twitter on June 22 to address a few statements that Del Rey made in an interview with The Guardian. "In the piece, Del Rey was quoted as saying that she saw glamor in an early death.

'I wish I was dead already,' she said. When the interviewer expressed concern, she responded, 'I do! I don't want to have to keep doing this. But I am,'" reported Pitchfork.

Cobain was not very happy with what Del Rey said in the interview as she lost her father, Kurt Cobain, Nirvana front-man in 1994. Her tweets read, "@LanaDelRey the death of young musicians isn't something to romanticize (cont)"

"@LanaDelRey I'll never know my father because he died young & it becomes a desirable feat because ppl like u think it's "cool"(cont)"

"@LanaDelRey Well, it's fucking not. Embrace life, because u only get one life. The ppl u mentioned wasted that life.Don't be 1 of those ppl"

"@LanaDelRey ur too talented to waste it away."

Though it seemed like an attack to Del Rey fans, Cobain tweeted that she wasn't attacking Del Rey, nor did she have any animosity to the "National Anthem," singer.

Whether it was the altercation between the two that initiated the hiatus or not, Del Rey has not been active on her Twitter account other than promoting music videos.

She has not been interacting with her fans or even given any retweets. So most fans must be wondering, "Where is Lana Del Rey?"
