Avril Lavigne Responds To The Critics

Mike Ross of the Edmonton Sun caught up with and asked the singer about the growing backlash against her, including claims that she’s manufactured, and that she’s claiming to be punk when she’s not. “That’s what happens when someone gets really big. Then everyone just tries to bring them down. Second of all, I never, ever claimed to be punk, thank you,” she laughed. “The media labelled me as punk. That was because I was a little teenage girl who came out and wasn’t the typical pop bubblegum little act. So everyone just like decided to label me punk because I was different and I had more of edge. OK, I’m not made up. I write my own songs. I’ve been doing music my whole life. I buy my own clothes. I say what I want. I make my own decisions. People don’t tell me what to do. They don’t tell me where to go. I do what I want to do. That’s bullsh**!”

    “I’m not a punk/rocker, I don’t have punk music. Maybe I have some punk characteristics about me, but I don’t walk around calling myself punk. If you really wanna know what I think I am, I think I’m just a rock chick”. Avril Lavigne can label herself as a “rock chick” all she wants, but she is nothing but a pop music artist who sings and writes pop music. I’m not a fan of hers and I’m not a fan of her music at all. Every time I hear her music on the radio, I would immediately change the station or pop in one of my CDs in my CD player in my car and listen to them because her voice makes my ears bleed so much. I’m pretty sure that everybody out there is fully aware that she wrote the song, “Breakaway” and gave it to one of my favorite pop music artists, Kelly Clarkson. I’m so glad that Kelly decide to record that song on her second album, “Breakaway” because in my personal opinion, I think that she can sing that song a lot better than Avril can. She can also label herself as a “skater chick” all she wants, but she isn’t a “skater chick” either because she doesn’t know how to skateboard like Tony Hawk can. All she does is is fall off of a skateboard whenever she skateboards along with her band. She needs to go back to high school and learn how to spell, “Sk8er Boi” because the way she spells it looks so retarded. She also needs to stop criticizing other pop music artists in the music industry because she isn’t hardcore like she thinks she is, and neither is her music. End of story.
