She is not the one who ruined punk, that started a loooong time ago, maybe even as far back as the 80's.
Even though many people hate her, quite a few girls(and even some boys) like her because she was the first "Punk" band singer that "mummy" and "daddy" did not get freaked out about, meaning they still got money from their richass high class familys, but they still got respect from their friends because she was "punk rock".
This pissed the people who had to give up a lot to listen to real rock, and had people stare at them funny. It also made some people angry because she CAN'T sing!
Finally it made some people mad, because the weird tenny boppers think that all rock and roll, as well as punk people are their "friends" and "sisters" and "brothers" in the fight against authority...
She also pissed of the Anarchists because she stole the anarchy sign, and tried to make it her own.
Personally the reason I hate her, is that ever since she did the song "sk8er boi" we've been killed with that kind writing. "OMG, Shz the shit, ain't aril gr8!" God that pisses me off... she also got the people who do this to come out of the closet. "OmG iSN't sHE thE BESt!" *twitch*
She also can't proform, and even if you are one of the few who likes her music, I warn you not to go to her concerts. She doesn't dance, move or anything like that... and they are very boring. I know, I got dragged to one of them by my little sister....

An amazing, beautiful, confident, young artist who started out as a small-town girl with a dream, and a great pair of pipes to boot! She was discovered by famous country singer, Shania Twain, when Av won a contest to sing with her hero. She made her way to stardom, one step at a time, starting out with such hits like "Sk8er Boi" and "Complicated" in 2002, after signing with Arista Records. She has produced two albums, "Let Go" and "Under My Skin" (plus several singles), and is currently working on her third cd. Even through all the critisism she recieved for being who she is, Avril has constantly managed to stay on top. She has always been original and different from all of the other artists in the biz, and empowered girls and young women to stand up for them selves and be who they want to be.
NOTE: For all of you who disagree with me...that's okay. I'm not going to argue with you, because this is just my opinion. We're all entitled to our own. What matters is that Avril's music means something to ME. If her music doesn't do it for other people, I'm sure they will find another artist that will. Music is subjective and not everyone can agree. But that's what makes us, and music, exciting and different! If she means nothing to you, just let it be. Don't stomp on other people's inspiration. No one person can please everyone, but Avril sure has pleased me.
2.she has got style even if it is different to your 'Britany Spears'
3.she has great lyrics wich are way better than your manifactured crap that britany spears and jessica simpson sing.
4 anyone who doesnt think she can sing or she is trying to be somebody, then u r a person who is so jelous of somebody that u have to go and critisise 2 get some attention. and 2 me that is pathetic.
Avril (interview on Seventeen magazine): I was at the nightclub Hyde, and there were a million paparazzi guys. They’re all these gross older men, like disgusting-scum of the earth. They follow you around with clipboards and these glossy pictures of your and a blue Sharpie. They shove it in your face when you walk out of a club, then sell it on eBay, so I went “F*** you, f*** you, f*** you” on mine. (Laughs.) Then I spit on them. And they love it. They’re all laughing – “Avril spit on me!” But I’d been spitting on them for two years and that one time it became a story. They cared this time because there was nothing else going on. Like the Britney no-underwear thing – they always need a story. At that particular time there was nothing to talk about, so they made it into a story about me saying “F*** you!” to my fans who were waiting for autographs. But it was outside at Hyde at one’o clock in the morning! And these were men- not my fans. I would never in a million years…So I put out a statement and said, “Sorry about my behaviour- that was not toward my fans.”
She writes pop songs, and "dresses punk," to the dismay of many people in the true punk scene (AKA elito-conformists).
Although many people call her a disgrace, you cannot "dress punk," because punk is a lifestyle and a decision, not a fashion; therefore, there is nothing wrong with her; I also don't believe she claimed to be punk, and if she did, who cares?!
Elitist: I hate Avril cuz she thinks she's punk
Teeny: I love Avril, look at how hardcore I am now
Normal person: Who cares.
