I've never heard of Willow Smith. I guess I'm old.

I think she's Will Smith's daughter, and she was referenced as a rare black female rock musician, so I checked her out on YouTube and the song Transparent Soul is pretty good.

Avril Lavigne is 37 now. Seems weird that she's middle-aged.

Transparent Soul sounds like Misery Business from Paramore.

50 is middle aged even though the math doesn't work for life expectancy. 37 is still young. :P

Hard to believe as long as they have been performing Avril and Britney are not even 40 yet. Heck Lindsay Lohan is only 35, but looks to be pushing 50.

What is it that she does for a living? Oh, something to do with music or whatever.

Time flies

She was probably one of the biggest artists in 2002.

Love Sux", Bite Me, Bois Lie, F.U.,... and the same sound as many years ago and she's even dressing like it.
Someone remind her she's almost 40.

Of course it sounded like she grew up on the last album, so this is probably a desperate attempt to be relevant again.

In the chorus she rhymes “Baby” with “Hate me” and “Crazy”.
Was this song written by the same guy who wrote Katy Perry’s last album’s lead single?

Once a poser, always a poser.

Whatever she is doing it is working since it is getting a lot of airplay on the radio and her videos are getting played on MTV Live along with the other artists who dominate the charts,

There’s an MTV channel that plays music videos?? Very 80’s-90’s of them.

I haven't heard these songs anywhere except in the Youtube videos you post here, and my wife listens to pop radio.

Who do you think is actually using that kind of terminology other then people who grew up in web 2.0. She is "acting her age",the people who grew up loving and listening to pop-punk are mostly 30 somethings now. It's actually shocking to me how many older millenials(ie people who could vote but not drink legally when Avril started) and Gen X'ers still dismiss Avril or an entire genre of pop-punk just cause of some rigid genre gatekeeping of "real" music.

I see you're from Texas, which means you know exactly what the facts is.

If you talk/act the same as you did as a teenager, then you probably haven't grown up and not aren't acting your age.
Except in her case, I suspect she did - as she seemed to have gotten more mature on her last album. Of course it didn't sell well, so I'm sure that's why she's going back to the well again.

I think she did a more mature album around 2011 with a lot of ballads and slower songs and some after that too and just recently went back to pop punk.

She can probably pull it off since she has not aged and it seems like that genre of music is back in fashion with younger people

Channel 572 which is MTV Live on Directv does play music videos.

I was watching something the other day and learned that Avril Lavigne not only wrote a lot of her songs, if not pretty much all of them, but has also written songs for several artists such as Rihanna and Kelly Clarkson.

She's written songs for the Japanese duo Puffy (Puffy AmiYumi in the US due to a C&D from Sean Combs). Second one here is a bit of a pop-punk banger.

I think she also wrote songs with that douche from Nickelback she was married to.
