Ever since her first video ‘Complicated’ came on TV last June, the first thing I said to myself was “Wow I got to know who that is”. And I was hooked from that day on. I was a very addicted fan. I looked on eBay all the time for Avril Lavigne autographed merchandise. I bought posters, her cd, etc. Even paid 180 dollars for her concert tickets and seen her in concert in April of 2003. I will say her performance was good.
But I was shocked to read about her dissing her fans. Calling them posers. Now me myself, I never went out and dressed like her, wore the tie etc because I’m 27. I dress how I always do but I liked her music. She reminded me of how I was at her age. Her attitude. But I didn’t think her attitude would carry over to her fans. Ever since I read what she said about telling her fans, or should I say posers, to get a life, I just have lost all respect for her completely. She has a huge fan base and mostly it consists of teenagers and that’s just wrong to say that about your fans. I guess she forgets that its not LA Reid or her company that signs her checks, its her fans. I only hope that she hits rock bottom hard for being so ungrateful and so pigheaded. Because without her fans, she is nothing.
