In a rare public interview, Frances Bean Cobain has called out the Kardashian clan for being phony!

Talking with RuPaul Charles and Michelle Visage on their "What's The Tee?" podcast, the 26-year-old daughter of late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain and rocker Courtney Love said her life and her music are grounded in "authenticity" — unlike America's most plastic family!

"That is what I'm trying to provide in the service of this world, since it's very lacking," Frances Bean said on the show. "Like, In the age of the Kardashian — and that's fine, they specifically fill that role for a reason — but everything is so saturated and filtered and conceived."

The Emmy-nominated visual artist says for her, unlike the Kardashians, the key is to make the reality "real."

"What people really are thirsty for, I think, in an artistic way, is being able to see somebody for who they are. All the messy bits involved," she continued.

Those messy bits include Frances Bean's struggle with drug addiction, though she claims she's now sober, healthy and happy.

Her famous father Kurt committed suicide at the height of his popularity.  Frances Bean was only 20 months old when the "Smells Like Teen Spirit" singer took his own life with a self-inflicted shotgun wound.

Her mother, meanwhile, has fought drug abuse and legal troubles for years.

Frances Bean admitted she fell into a lot of the traps suffered by her parents, but is now stable and ready to accept her role as "the female version of Kurt."

"If people need that outlet in order to look at my music and my art and go, 'it's just like your dad,' that's okay. If that's the association they make, that's a pretty damn good association. there are worse things to be called," she said.
