Avril Lavigne used to parlay her talents into a faux punk motif. Now she’s got a brand new album with words like *motherf**king* in songs and she looks like she could be on the front pages of Glamour. Oooh, that’s edgy.
How exactly is Avril a rebel now? She’s been completely co-opted by mainstream corporate rock. Why Avril? How did a good Napanee, Ont.-based girl like you turn so unabashedly MTV?
