Geez I thought that video was like 12 years old. 29 and still dressing and acting like a 14 year old mall rat.

That's her audience. Of course she's still going to dress like that.

Thing is, she trying progressing a little, and attempting more mature material with her second album, and it did not work. So, it was right back to the teeny-bopper skater brat crap - which, oddly enough, is what's kept her a going concern.

That was her audience more than a decade ago. Fourteen year olds today don't know who the fuck she is, and trying to pander to them instead of maturing her style to appeal to the 20-somethings who used to like her, is ridiculous.

Outside of "Never Growing Up" I don't think any of the songs on her latest album are getting any radio airplay.

I guess the vid worked. This is the most she's been talked about in more than ten years.

Okay, seriously though; this bitch, Nickleback, Bieber... Canada is totally outdoing America in tasteless, artless, meaningless pablum. We were the kings of trash, and now Canada has totally surpassed us!

Just remember that the kid her and Kroger had is going to be the next Mozart.

Musical mediocrity always skips a generation.

Well that's where you would be entirely wrong, because my point was that 14 year olds DO know who she is, and are the ones that are still buying her records.

Think of it sort of like Wooderson in Dazed And Confused. She get's older, her audience stays the same age.

Not really. Their bacon is what we call ham. There's a difference.

Finally checked out the video. Dopey, cliched, poorly edited, annoying, but not racist. And my GOD that "song" was fucking terrible.

I'd like some evidence of this. That'd be like a 14 year old in 2000 listening to Tiffany.

Don't blame our Canadian neighbors . America chosen to embrace The Beibs,Nickelback and Avril and ignore Basia Bulat and her Harp playing as well as Shad one of the greatest songwriters in Hip Hop these days.

It's quite possible.

In the mid 90s me and my siblings were huge Davy Jones fans. In fact my older sister was even president of his fan club.

That would've been in the middle of the '70s retro fad. There's been nothing similar for the late-90s/early-00s -- no N'sync revival, no Britney-inspired fashion comeback, no kids with Friends lunchboxes and Teletubby T-shirts.

I agree. If Americans didn't pay any attention to these "artists", then they would've fallen off the face of the earth. Now it's American's job to kill them off.
The good thing is they keep choosing to live in the US. You deal with 'em, suckers!

Bonus points for making that Avril video seem tolerable.
