Avril Lavigne Still Doing The Bratty Badass Teenager Thing

By: Amelia McDonell-Parry / January 24, 2011


Avril Lavigne’s back with a video for her new single, “What The Hell,” a product placement-happy joy ride in which the punk-pop princess — now 26 — tries to outrun (and outdrive) her super hot, Brody Jenner-esque plaything. Why? I’m not entirely sure. We see Avril in her skivvies, playing basketball, and driving a taxi cab, before she finally hides out in a boutique which conveniently sells her own line of clothing, Abbey Dawn. I was never an Avril fan to begin with and I suppose it’s fool on me for thinking her musical stylings would mature into deeper territory, but, like, is there still a market for this? My head hurts.
