Jenny Eliscu of Rolling Stone magazine chatted with Avril Lavigne and asked the singer if she considered herself a feminist.
“I don’t really know” the singer, who writes her own lyrics, admitted. “What exactly is that?” After it was explained to her, Avril said, “Ok, fine. Musically, girls can rock. Fu** that, who says they can’t?”
“I love my bro but my brother used to be like, ‘You’re a girl. You can’t go hunting or fishing.’ I’d be like, ‘You’re stupid.’ And we’d get into a huge fight.”
I don’t think she answered the question.
Entertainment Weekly profiled the latest fashion craze of men and women wearing neckties with T-shirts that has been popularized by Avril Lavigne, Kelly Osbourne and Michelle Branch.
New York City based stylist Darshan Gress remarked “In essence, you’ve have to have a strong personality to wear it, especially if you’re a girl”.
Stylist Stephanie Wolfe, whose clients include Avril Lavigne remarked, “Avril is antifashion, yet she’s setting fashion trends.”
Avril Lavigne has gotten a quick lesson in the world of pop star posers as a pop up message upon entering the singer’s official site reads “I just want all of you guys to know that some idiot out there is posing as me and sending emails to various message boards, dissing my fans and just being a jerk in general.”
“One of the email addresses he/she is using is email@example.com but he/she keeps changing them. First of all I don’t have an AOL account and I would never put my name in my email address. And most importantly, I love all my fans. I would never take them for granted or say anything bad about them.”
“Please just ignore this pathetic person out there who has nothing else better to do than sit at home by him/herself and pretend he/she is me… obsessed!”
President and CEO of Arista Records, Antonio “L.A.” Reid, seems to be extremely proud of his current top selling artist, Avril Lavigne, as he’s still continuing releasing weekly hype press releases for the pretty girl.
The sales rise streak has come to an end already but this week Avril set the all-time BDS spin record for one week at Mainstream Top 40 with 9,205 spins of her first single ‘Complicated’.
She breaks Nickelback’s prior record of 9,050 for their brilliant ‘How You Remind Me’ number. “This is an incredible accomplishment” declared Mr Reid.
Next up for Avril is her sophomore offering ‘Sk8er Boi’, which MTV plans to cover with a ‘Making Of’ special video shoot. She will also perform on a Nickelodeon concert set for the 4th of August and on the 1st of October, she can be seen on David Letterman.
Meanwhile, I don’t think Avril’s pleasing just about everybody these days. Jessica Zietz of Rec Room Magazine blasts the singer in a lengthy report but below’s the jist of it.
“Avril Lavigne just seems fake, plain and simple. She tries to pull off this tormented, wounded puppy look in the ‘Complicated’ video. She emphasizes her songwriting and guitar playing, yet had numerous songwriters work on her album, while the guitar is rarely strapped around her body when the music is live.”
