Kurt’s Blog: Sometimes My Favorite Artists Just Make it Hard to Explain Them

Alright…I get grief about this from my friends a bunch….but I’m a big Avril Lavigne fan. She’s a wanna-be punk? I don’t care. Some think she’s not pretty…I totally disagree. She marries Chad Kroeger of Nickelback? Didn’t phase me. Everything Avril does, I support….totally fine with it.

Then her video for her new single “Hello Kitty” came out…

Umm…I’m as baffled as everyone else. No idea what this is. It was my least favorite song on her new album…but the video? Yikes. I need to hit up some “Sk8er Boi” to get this out of my head. I have no words….it only gives ammunition to all my friends who will forward me this video and say “Remember, Kurt, you are on record…you like this”.

Take that 2048
