Avril Lavigne Makes Johnny Rotten’s Blood Boil

Matt Sebastian of the Daily Camera caught up with Sex Pistols frontman Johnny Rotten, who was again fuming over Avril Lavigne, especially her comments proclaiming herself “punk,” going so far as to tell Seventeen magazine that “I’m like a Sid Vicious for a new generation.” Rotten said of the Canadian pop-punk act: “I don’t give a damn. I wish she was (Vicious). Then she’d be dead, and that’s putting it mildly … What do people think heroin is? A joyous romp in the park? It’s self destruction, and I’m sorry, but no self-respecting punk would be out to destroy himself. ‘Oh, he’s the dead one, you know.’ What a bizarre attitude that it’s the dead one who’s the good one. Look, these self-professed punks are fake. She’s about as much punk as Kelly Osbourne.”

    Avril Lavigne is a disgrace to punk. She’s not punk. She is MANUFACTURED. As Johnny has said, being punk means you’re an INDIVIDUAL, you don’t conform. Everything about Avril Lavigne’s image is copied from Johnny Rotten in the 1970’s. Johnny Rotten basically invented punk (not single-handedly, some other artists I’ll give credit to too, but he created it mostly). Punk is not about MTV and dissing Britney. Avril disses Britney because she thinks dissing Britney is what punks do, not because she actually truly believes what she says about Britney. Avril is a fool and I hope she dies. All these stupid fools, like that ash person on popdirt, think that Avril is punk, which she’s NOT. THE GIRL DOESN’T EVEN KNOW WHO THE SEX PISTOLS ARE. SEX PISTOLS INVENTED PUNK. AVRIL LAVIGNE IS A POP MANUFACTURED BITCH.

    Lol, I love Johnny. I saw the Sex Pistols in concert in August, and Johnny was dissing Justin on stage. Dry. Basically calling Justin fake and those 15 year old girls that are Justin fans are sad, blah blah blah. Then he asked the crowd if he’s better than that f***ot Justin Timberlake, and the crowd cheered. Yeah you are, Johnny. Obviously Justin isn’t going to be in the movie though, because Johnny always blasts MTV and everything that’s on MTV, including Justin, Kelly, Avril, Greenday, faux punks, etc. GO JOHNNY!

    UGH how stupid is Avril for saying she’s Sid Vicious for this generation? GOD THAT PISSES ME OFF. Does she even know who Sid Vicious is? LOL, I bet nobody on popdirt knows. especially not those Nsync and Avril teenies, like babet and ash. I doubt she knows who Sid is, she said in Entertainment Weekly she doesn’t even know who the Sex Pistols are. “People are like, ‘Well, she doesn’t know the Sex Pistols.’ Why would I know that stuff? Look how young I am. That stuff’s old, right?” LMFAO. Dumb little c*nt. Sex Pistols invented punk. Sex Pistols invented the punk image. Everything Avril wears – from the ties to the studded wristbands – are copied from the Sex Pistols. And she doesn’t even know who they are? WHAT A D*MB TEENYBOPPER B*TCH. It’s so sad how these new pop bands that are trying to be punk (like GC, Simple Plan, Green Day), don’t even know who the Sex Pistols are, or know anything about punk history. Oh, and if Avril was punk – she’d have her own image. PUNK ISN’T ABOUT COPYING. But she’s copying the Sex Pistols image (sadly, without even knowing it. because she doesn’t know sh*t about music. her pr team is dressing her up as the Sex Pistols.), and that’s not being punk. The Sex Pistols didn’t copy anyone. They invented their own image.

  5. breez says:

    LMAO look at Xtinafan having a hernia here. LOL, yeah Avril’s manufactured and your sitting there calling other people teenies……..what exactly do you call Britney Spears? MANUFACTURED TRASH. with a following of pathetic teenyboppers like you. Avril and Britney are BOTH manufactured.

  6. anti_avril says:

    Don’t say stuff about Christina or Britney you posers! Avril is a poser too. She can’t sing, used to be a cheerleader (she even said she liked it!) she can only play the g-cord, and she says she is a better singer than Christina and she has a better body than Britney! Oh yeah she says she is a rocker! haha yeah right! what an untalented whore! Now you guys know why my screen name is anti_avril! SEX PISTOLS ROCK!

  7. twistabomb says:

    ….He never really said anything bad about Justin in this anyway. But on the Avril thing, man I find that guy retarded. I really don’t know who he is comp., heard of the Sex Pistols but honestly I’m not into rock like that so I won’t comment on his music. But for someone to go so much as to wish death upon someone, what an a-hole. How old is he again and he’s talking crap about people? Someone who is younger than him at that. Grow up. Let the girl do her thing, she’s just trying to make some cash flow too. I hate the music industry..

  8. XtinaFan says:

    twistabomb, your comment just proved your ignorance. You’re calling Johnny retarded? You obviously haven’t read any of his interviews, or read “No Irish, No Blacks, No Dogs”. Johnny Rotten is an EXTREMELY intelligent man. He makes Avril and Justin look like they have down syndrome. Lol, and you proved yourself even more dumb with your Justin comment. Just read what I posted before… Johnny has dissed Justin’s fakeness many times before. He did at the concert I went to, not to mention many interviews. He was joking when he said Justin should play him.

  9. LuckyThirteen says:

    The Sex Pistols didn’t ‘invent’ punk. They played a big part though. ‘punk’ started with the likes of the Stooges and the Who but was grounded by The Ramones who inspired The Sex Pistols, The Clash and many other punk bands of the mid to late 70s and early 80s.

  10. XtinaFan says:

    I don’t know if you can read or not, but I said that the Sex Pistols did NOT single-handedly create punk. Maybe that was another post on this thread though, but I said that. I know that. Idiot.

  11. LuckyThirteen says:

    “Sex Pistols invented punk. Sex Pistols invented the punk image. ” looks like you are the idiot. Don’t challenge me fool, I know more about music history than you’ll ever learn.
