Avril Lavigne is a Big Fat Ignoramus

Not that it should come as any surprise to anyone that I don't like Avril Lavigne, that insipid bit of trash injected into an already messed up and worsening world.


JUST HOW IS IT THAT SOMEONE BECOMES THAT POPULAR WITH NONE OF THE LYRICS TO ANY OF HER SONGS EVER FITTING PROPERLY INTO THE TUNES?

But her new song is really irritating me. It's the one that goes:

Hey Hey You You
I don't like your girlfriend
No way No way
I think you need a new one
Hey Hey You You
I could be your girlfriend

She apparently did eight translations of this song into different languages. It's been said that she actually tried to learn the languages and worked with speech coaches because she wanted to be "respectful".

There is absolutely NOTHING respectful about a third person actively breaking up someone else's relationship, in ANY language, in ANY culture. People fawning all over this song is just VILE.

She did a Japanese and Mandarin version and her pronunciation still makes me violently ill.

And I'm glad she didn't go ahead with the Hindi version like originally planned. In a culture of arranged marriages, I don't imagine the casualness of the word "girlfriend" translates all that smoothly.

MORON.
