AvRiLiScHe (avril Lavigne)

avril lavigne - In Lavigne's official MySpace page, she affirms that her music genre is Pop/Punk/Rock[41]; but All Music Guide and others reviewers consider her"Punk, Punk-pop, Pop/Rock, Alternative Rock, Alternative Pop-Rock, Modern Rock and Post-Grunge" The reason for the confusion appears to be for her punk-like appearance early in her career, along with statements made by the songstress herself that she is"as punk as they come". However, there have been several occasions where she has stated"I'm not punk."[42] Lavigne told MTV Essential: Avril Lavigne in April 2007 that"I'm a rocker chic and not completely pop". Though she cites many early punk bands and figures as influences (most notably Sid Vicious), her music has little in common with 1970s punk.
Lavigne spoke about her new look in a September 2006 interview. She explains,"When I was in high school I was a little damn,hanging out with the guys, getting drunk, getting in fights, playing hockey. My band were all guys, so I was only around guys, but when I got older I started being more of a chick. I broke out on the scene looking like the 17-year-old that I was. And from then to now I look really different—but that's called growing up."[43]Lavigne appeared to pose topless in the June 2007 issue of U.S. magazine Blender.[44] She later said to MTV that she was actually wearing a tubetop and the magazine just covered it with the banner to make her look topless.[45]

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.
