Unless you can do all of that, you really shouldn't be criticizing her. Her songs are poppy and top-40-ish and she is selling sexiness, but she does it soooo well (eg.- that girlfriend song, the line she sings "i don't wanna hear you say her name ever again!!!" I was like, dammmnnn that was HOTTTT!!!) Unlike the Jonas Brothers who i always feel are puppets in a mega-corporate scheme and the object of teen exploitation, i just get the vibe that avril's producers and record company let her call all of her own shots and that's just the person she is.
i also like Kelly Clarkson, Nelly Furtado, Carrie Underwood, and Alanis Morrisette. Wanna fight over it or what???
I know what you mean. I do agree that there are a lot of bands who just sound poppy because that's just the sort of music they like writing. Also I'm definetly not complaining about AM, She had Taylor Hawkins as her drummer before he joined foo fighters.
I hate KC but i do rather lol at the cover version that A Day to Remember did of since u been gone.
