8 Most Cringeworthy Things In Avril Lavigne's 'Hello Kitty' Video
Oh jeez, just when you thought Avril was gone forever, she reappears with her worst song yet, 'Hello Sh*tty', er...I mean 'Hello Kitty'. Not only does the song stink, the video is quite possibly one of the most hideous things I've seen in recent memory. Check it out for yourself:
Wow. Avril makes Miley Cyrus look like Lorde. Even thought the video is a pure WTF confection, here are 8 things that I found to be the absolute worst. The precious crap jewels in the mound of doodoo gold. Ugh.
In general, all of the cultural appropriation
Oh, Avril! It's 2014. Have you learned nothing about the offensiveness that is cultural appropriation? Especially when it's as inaccurate and stereotypical as the things in your video. I'm thinking Tokyo is more than just a candy-colored cupcake dreamland, yes? And is it just me or does she come dangerously close to doing something racist with her hands in this GIF? I'm not even one of those people who get offended by everything, but this video takes the cupcake. Actually the most offensive thing might be subjecting the world to a song that includes both dubstep and a Chad Kroeger co-writing credit. shudder
The way she throws around random Japanese words
I think I sighed about 400 times in this video, which makes a lot more sense than any of the random Japanese words that Avril shouted at us. Did the dude who wrote Friday work on this one too?
Her guitar playing
Avril's guitar playing style can be best described as 'dead inside'. It's so damn soulless. Guess that makes sense, since she probably sold her soul to the devil to have a successful music career.
WAT. Let me remind you that Avril is coming up on 30-years-old. This outfit is so tacky, even Katy Perry rejected it. And don't get me started on the glasses. Guess they can't make everyone look smarter...
Her robotic back up dancers
Speaking of dead inside...oy, these poor damn dancers. On the brightside, at least they didn't have to pretend that they were enjoying themselves. Not even Meryl Streep could pull that act off successfully.
This sushi moment
Speaking of great acting...oh again and forever. I can honestly hate watch this forever. I still can't decide what part I hate the most, but I'll keep trying.
Her Skrillex hair
Does Avril do anything original? NOPE! Not only is she a copycat, but what she copies is crap. She's a copycrap. You heard it hear first. Can't wait until 'copycrap' is added to the Oxford English DIctionary next year.
The fact that the whole damn thing is a rip-off of what Gwen Stefani did years ago
Speaking of being a copycat...I mean come on!
The really baffling thing is that not only did Avril steal everything from Gwen Stefani, she learned nothing from the fact that Stefani got major flack for cultural appropriation back in her Harajuku days. The only difference, Stefani has talent. So, I guess we were more willing to forgive her poor judgment. I don't make the rules, folks! Life isn't fair! Exhibit A: Chavril are richer than all of us. Now I'm depressed.
