I find it hard to approve of many pop stars and their behaviour and or lyrics.

But avril seems pretty safe, no naughty lyrics, not falling out of night clubs, not getting into arguments, not showing all her flesh, not talking about sex all the time.

Just fun and wacky with a faux rebble attitude. Aibu to think she's safe to buy for pre teens?

Oh fuck that's not the link I ment to send, she does talk about underwear, hense my reservation with her

Alisvolatpropiis Sun 21-Dec-14 17:48:45

Probably.

But she isn't very current anymore. She was popular about 13 years ago when I was in my early teens. I didn't realise she was still releasing music.

I bought my dd's Avril Lavigne and they are 8 and 11, must be 2 years ago I bought it, I think she is a great role model and am so fed up of princesses or pop stars messages.

HugeFurryKnittingBalls Sun 21-Dec-14 17:52:48

Well there was the marriage to the much older rock star that is no more, but my girls loved her when they were 11ish. I agree that she's not very current, those crazy teens move on so quickly, you've got to keep up with the shizzle, daddio.

my 11 year old likes her.

twoopsie Sun 21-Dec-14 18:00:44

She's an OK role model..... but unlikely to be someone young girls have actually heard of.

I find Little Mix the least worst of the current crop of pop moppets meself.

ilovepowerhoop Sun 21-Dec-14 18:07:01

She had an album out last year

ilovepowerhoop Sun 21-Dec-14 18:09:41

my ds also likes Pink and Katy Perry and hates boy bands

ilovepowerhoop Sun 21-Dec-14 18:12:18

supposed to say dd not ds!

Just fun and wacky with a faux rebbel attitude you've said it there, it's fake just like every other pop star.

Azquilith Sun 21-Dec-14 18:13:20

She's a little old...

AVRIL LAVIGNE LYRICS
"Bad Girl"
(feat. Marilyn Manson)

Just lay your head in daddy’s lap, you’re a bad girl

Bad girl (1-2-3-4)

Hey, hey
I'll let you walk all over me, me
You know that I’m a little tease, tease
But I wanna play there please, please

You know you know you know I’m crazy
I just wanna be your baby
You can fuck me, you can play me
You can love and you can hate me

Miss me, miss me, now you wanna kiss me

[Chorus]
Choke me because I said so
Stroke me and feed my ego
I’ve been a bad girl, don’t you know?
(Don’t tell me what to do)
Come get it now or never
I’ll let you do whatever
I’ll be your bad girl, here we go
(1-2-3-4)

Miss me, miss me, now you wanna kiss me

(You're a bad girl)

Baby,
You know I want a little taste, taste
So let me take you all the way, way
You know you’ll never be the same, same

(You fuckin' bad girl!)

One night
You won’t forget the rest of your life
So come on over to the wild side
Buckle up and, baby, hold on tight

Miss me, miss me, now you wanna kiss me
We both know that you love me 'cause I'm so bad!

[Chorus]
Choke me because I said so
Stroke me and feed my ego
I’ve been a bad girl, don’t you know?
(Don’t tell me what to do)
Come get it now or never
I’ll let you do whatever
I’ll be your bad girl, here we go
(1-2-3-4)

I’ve been a bad girl [7x]
I’ve got your bad girl

[Chorus]
Choke me because I said so
Stroke me and feed my ego
I’ve been a bad girl, don’t you know?
(Don’t tell me what to do)
Come get it now or never
I’ll let you do whatever
I’ll be your bad girl, here we go
(1-2-3-4)

Bad bad bad girl

She is a fantastic role model with all her charity stuff - she campaigns for Amnesty international and has her own charitable foundation.

DD used to be into her music when it was "alternative" - but now apparently she is a bit too "mainstream". though DD likes her hubby - from Nickelback

twoopsie Sun 21-Dec-14 18:21:48

What are those pics of? Lots of the guys are way hotter than her, fans?

StripedCandycaneOss Sun 21-Dec-14 18:22:22

Her first hubby was only 4 years older, Chad is 10 years older, but she is 30 so I don't see the problem.

meglet Sun 21-Dec-14 18:30:23

She was cool 10+ yrs ago, hardly current. There's got to be a hundred cooler acts than AL.

But, then I know nothing. I like Taylor Swift grin (not even ashamed).

buttercupbear Sun 21-Dec-14 18:31:43

Two, they're her fans who had to not touch or go near her at a meet and greet!

twoopsie Sun 21-Dec-14 18:34:31

Taylor swift just goes on about her exes, or about not caring what people think, when clearly she does!

StackladysMorphicResonator Sun 21-Dec-14 18:34:53

Definitely passe according to the very up-to-date tweenager sitting in my lounge!

twoopsie Sun 21-Dec-14 18:35:29

Oh well they aren't as bad as these, she looks like some drag act in late 40s...

I like Avril Lavigne and have her albums. Didn't realise she wasn't cool anymore. Oh well neither am I anyway and at 35YO I dont think I need to be so its all well for me.

I also like Aqua and Taylor Swift among other uncool people.
