I used to think Avril Lavgine was a punk poser. I read the article, and now I KNOW she is a punk poser.

I don't like "her" music at all so her punk cred isn't even an issue for me.

I can't bring myself to click on an ew.com link.


This whole thread was a "who's the real punk poser?" test, right?

Was the article supposed to convince of? That she really is or that she isn't?

Avril's no more punk than Britney or Christina. It's all about sellin' records, and that's it.

I don't really think "poser" covers it.

She's really sort of beyond "poser."

Anti-Britney? How so? Is Britney suddenly persona-non-grata in the pop music scene? Why do I sound like I even give a ****?

I'll be picking up Avril's CD along with Tori's new one tomorrow. I love both of her singles. The music sounds good and that's all that matters.

Music is like religion - it's so hard to discuss, because attacking an artist is like attacking fans of the artist. If you call somebody a loser, people who like that person will probably offended, because of assocation, they are losers too.

That being said, I read the EW Question and Answer session she did...she acknowledges she is not "punk", and says its just a label affixed on her. I couldn't care less, I don't buy CDs because somebody looks good.

Besides, I've yet to see a "real punk". Who are the current artists that are "punk"? Wouldn't they just be copying the "original punks"? I'm not an expert on this stuff, but I imagine that punks really don't exist these days.

The whole concept of punk fashion was a joke by Johnny Rotten way back in the day anyways.

Maybe I'm a purist, but I've always thought of punk as a f the establishment/anti-conformity be true to your self attitude. The 80s injected the DIY element and that is it. Nothing about fashion or sound IMO. You can be punk in any style of music.

Most bands co-opt the stereotypical punk fashion and fast, distorted three chord tunes because that is what the Sex Pistols and Ramones did to start, however their respective sounds were extremely reactionary to their time and place.

Who said she's punk at all?

She's as much punk as shania twain is country.

Her album is really awesome, though IMO.

My daughter is 11, and was up until not too long ago a huge Britney fan, until WonderJugs started overdoing the sleaz-o angle in an attempt to broaden her appeal.

In the eyes of my kid, Avril is the absolute best in part because she's not strutting around in low-cut pants or push-up bras (yets).

Yeah, I'll admit Britney is a major hot thang, but personally, I like Avril's non-sex bomb image, and her music (measured against others in it's genre) ain't bad either.
