Yeah i don't like Avril now. She looks kinda awkward, especially doing that "kinda-burlesque" themed music video. i forgot the song title. I think she's beginning to lose herself. Maybe she's at a crossroads in her life, she's changing too much too soon, that's why she comes off as quite weird to me nowadays. It's like what she's doing now isn't really her but someone else's idea of Avril Lavigne as a singer.
