The funniest thing in the world has gotta be when little Avril Lavigne fans come here and start moaning about how fake Britney Spears is. Yeah okay she marketed herself into a wide-eyed innocent Christian schoolgirl, but at the time it wasn’t that far from the truth. And maybe her music is somewhat altered to make it sound better. I’m not saying she is an amazing singer, even she admits that she’s not. But what I am saying is that you cannot get more hypocritical than being an Avril fan who calls something manufactured. She is not punk; she’s a folk singer from Canada. She is not bad-ass; she’s just a uneducated brat. She is not a talented song writer; she “co-writes” the most trite songs to hit the states since Hanson. Yet her fans are blinded by glitz and PR. Isn’t that what Britney fans are supposedly blinded by as well? Maybe we are, but Avril is the Britney of punk.
And of course we know its jealousy but Avril’s fans are just as bratty as her so they are too stubborn to admit to it. Well Britney may be fake but at least she has a place in the world of music; the queen of pop (perhaps sharing that title with Christina or even still Madonna – not gonna go there now) Avril isn’t punk (you want punk look at The Clash or The Sex Pistols), she’s not pop (that’s the above mentioned people’s domain), she’s definitely not talented enough to be rock or R&B… she’s just a skinny Kelly Osbourne who liked to whinge.
