The once brooding anti pop, anti teen, anti commercial Avril Lavigne has bitten the bullet and gone all teen sweetness, sticky, gum up your ears kinda music she once was dead set against.
Her new song, Girlfriend, is a throwback, if not a direct copy of Toni Basel's, Mickey or a mutant Hollabackgirl.
Fan reaction from, Girlfriend, have ranged from I'm 25 years old and I can't help but like it. To my IQ just dropped 20 points and I feel nauseous I'm gonna puke.
Taking a lesson directly from a Britney Spears pop video or some alternative Japanese fashion universe. Avril has gone commercial beyond eveyones imagination.
Avril once professed to hate the image given off by Britney, Christina and was suppose to be the chick that could rock. Now that Britney has become the anti-Britney, Avril is stepping up to fill the pop princess void.
Just when you thought some things were sacred, poof. it's gone.
