LOS ANGELES, Jan. 6 (UPI) -- The 13-year-old daughter of rockers Courtney Love and the late Kurt Cobain says she wants Mariah Carey to sing for her Sweet 16 party.

Frances Bean Cobain describes herself as "very girly" in the latest issue of i-D magazine and says she's obsessed with "Laguna Beach" and "American Idol," reported Friday.

Like any other teenager, Bean has mixed feelings about her headline-grabbing mother.

"I get to meet everyone I want and I get quite a lot of attention because of it, you know? But of course it hurts when you see a lot of lies about her in tabloids and then you think, 'Well, it's not that cool to have a cool mom.' I don't like seeing my mom upset. No one does, right?"

She also pines for more time with her actress-singer mom.

"Sometimes I wish I wasn't so much at home alone and that it wasn't about nannies and chauffeurs and all that stuff," she said.
