For any child that has had a parent that was famous it can be a difficult shadow to grow up in. The paparazzi love to catch any of these kids and show how they have had to deal with drug, alcohol, or legal problems. These problems could be exasperated for children who were famous and died while they were growing up. Look no further than Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley, or even Kurt Cobain all of their kids were held under tight scrutiny of how they would grow-up without their famous dad’s. However, time and time again these kids surprise the world on just how they have overcome who their parents where to become their very own person.
For a great example, you can look no further than Francis Bean Cobain, the daughter of Nirvana Lead Singer Kurt who decided to end his life when Francis was just a baby. She came to the realization that she could not escape who her father was, so instead is looking to celebrate his life as the producer behind the documentary surrounding his life entitled “Montage of Heck.” During the interview given exclusively to Rolling Stone she said that she would not have been a fan of Nirvana’s music but did like a couple of songs she believes shows her father in his truest form. Fans like Mark Ahn are impressed to find that, at 22 years old, she has shown that kids of the superstars are just like any other twenty year old who is trying to overcome who their parents were or are.
