Avril Lavigne thinks Britney Spears is weak

Avril Lavigne says Britney Spears can’t blame the media for her meltdown because all celebrities have to deal with the fame that comes with their success and it was her own fault for being so weak. She says:

“What’s happened to Britney is all down to who she is as a person. If you want a piece of this business you have to be able to deal with it. You can’t complain about the pressures, the paparazzi, the madness because that’s the job.”

I’m not defending Britney Spears, but she’s on a completely different level of fame than Avril Lavigne. You probably didn’t even know Avril Lavigne was still alive until about thirty seconds ago when you saw this post. I mean, yeah, it’s pretty easy to deal with fame when the only time you encounter it is little kids asking you if you’re Minnie Mouse.

    Didn’t Avril just spit on a paparazzi? Like recently?

    80: Jesus H. christ, was a BITCH!

    lmao, good god, she made the rudest faces throughout that interview!

    thanks for posting that :)

    #93, I think my irony meter just exploded.

    I don’t claim to know these celebrities personally, but my powers of observation tell me that Britney is somewhere in the ballpark of 25 years old and has had approximately 7 years (since legal adulthood) to tell her stage mom to stuff it and to get the heck out of showbiz if she can’t handle the disadvantages of being famous. Plenty of stars have gotten unwanted attention at very painful times (divorces, etc.), but managed to not lose their composure and to not be harassed around the clock because guess what? They didn’t act like complete idiots all the darn time, showing off their genetalia and whatnot. I feel sympathy towards Britney’s deteriorating mental state. I do not feel sympathy towards her for having to deal with the paparazzi because so much of that is her own fault.

    Avril wasn’t claiming to have Britney’s level of fame. She was just rather coldly pointing out what pretty much everyone in their dog has been thinking about Britney for quite some time.

    That being said, Avril kills my soul. I was disappointed to learn that she’s still making music. How on earth is that Girlfriend song No. 7?

  4. Binky

    This is probably the most retarded post I have ever read here.
    I agree with Bill Clinton – #42.
    A LaV can’t speak sense – because she’s not famous enough ? (26 million records) ?
    What’s the IQ of this Fish idiot and why come back ?

  5. Anna

    #64: Hell yeah. Wendy O. would beat the crap out of Avril, and I would pay money to see it.

  6. “I’m not defending Britney Spears, but she’s on a completely different level of fame than Avril Lavigne.”

    Wow! the Superfish guy FINALLY said something smart!
    Little avril is always trying to talk smack about real celebrities and yeah, I didn’t even realize she was still making music or anything.
    Apparently Spin Magazine claims her new album is good, according to my boyfriend.
    They must all be smoking crack. It cannot be good.

    #87 Think of it this way, she has the same taste as YOU. You got yours first, right?

  8. mad_world87

    Different levels of fame, for sure. But what makes Britney’s fame? Tabloid spectactle. Crotch shots. Messy celebrity relationships and 51-hour marriages. She does stupid shit to get noticed, and perpetuates her own “fame,” by letting them feed off of her. If Avril was a backwater whore like Britney, and gave her life to the tabloids to feed an obsessive need for fame and attention, she’d be on the same level. What is Britney actually famous for, otherwise. Some cleverly marketed records (that were pure shit, musically) that sold a lot? She’s an icon for being a whore. And she follows in a long line of low-grade musicians who become media icons for being slutty (Cher, Madonna, Mariah). Wow, America, you must be proud. Nevermind the fact that Avril’s debut record was the highest selling record by a female arist in 2002, and that her second record sat on top of the world record sales charts for 7 weeks. Also, forget about the fact that she has one of the biggest world-wide hits of the year on her hands (#7 on worldwide singles charts after 3 weeks at rotation). She may be Britney with less media training, less skin and more guitars, but I’d venture to say she’s a little more worthwile than Britney, raw talent-wise.

  9. thewriteguy

    Avril has a point, but frankly she was brought up differently. Her parents didn’t force her into showbiz. Britney’s did (or her mother, specifically).

    No, I’m not saying I feel for Britney — she’s a grown woman now, so she has no more excuses.

    As for Avril, I doubt it matters to her that she’s not as famous as Britney. Pragmatically speaking, how can you quantify the level of fame someone has, and further, why would it be any better to be “more” famous than another person?

    But, ideally, Avril should have kept her opinion about Britney to herself.

  10. sterrrphanie

    B spears was like 7 when her parents jon benet’d her. So I guess the whole famous thing is more of her parents doing BUT if anyone I know acted the way she does they would have their kids taken away…who would have thought that 6 months ago we would all be rooting for k-fed to get custody?

    Plus being a rich dumb cunt doesn’t excuse you from being a human being (see also Paris Hilton)

    http://nieuwsmening.blogse.nl/log/whats-with-the-stars/avril-lavigne-gets-burned-by-interviewer.html <— lol I love popworld, though Alex isnt as good as Simon Amstell was! Avril seems so up her own arse, what a bloody idiot.

  12. iknowyoulikeme

    Every interview I’ve seen of Avril, she comes across as so child-like and lame. I mean yeah her music is ”catchy”..its music for the masses, she isn’t deep and shouldnt claim to be. Britneys got issues, but what makes me laugh..is Britney never claimed to be this ”tough” person…so when avril gets divorced and loses it all, she’s really gunna have a lot to live up to. She’s too stupid to see the irony in her own situation.

    ^^copied and pasted from a google search on lyrics for her new single/video–

    wow apparently she throws a f bomb in there, so gangsta Avril! If she tried to blow me, I would just dickslap her, then hang her on a coat rack by her grannie panties.

  15. MsSocialist

    Shes like, TOTALLY deep with those lyrics.

    *sighs* Damn, she makes me want to like Americans better than Canadians. :(

  16. djfredflintstone

    I remember a conversation I had with a friend a few years ago when loveangelmusicbaby was sweeping the airwaves along the lines of how Gwen Stefani could do anything and make it the thing to do while everything Avril Lavigne did just seemed desperately misplaced and wrong no matter how hard she tried. It seemed kind of unfair at the time but everytime I see her on TV or interviews pretending that she’s all tough and punk like her tough punk midget boyfriend it just makes me want to pat her on the head and say It’s okay sweetie jesus loves you just be who you really are. And then I really that nobody -least of all her has any idea who that person is. Or cares. The only thing that’s puzzling me about this story is how she got into the conversation in the first place. We must have been standing right in front of a giant roomsized poster of her so large that we had to stop our forward progress and walk around it for her to enough register that she existed.

  17. BarbadoSlim

    Ah, those lyrics, the sad thing is, she does represent today’s youth. They ARE that “deep”

  18. djfredflintstone

    Oh, shit people are defending Avril. On artistic and moral grounds. Are they all Canadians? It’s always great to wake up and find a established post about some wannabe no talent celebrity after they crossed the douchebag line and then read the enraged comments from their ardent supporters.

    I’m going to be laughing about shovelhead (15,19,23, 30, 35, 40, 44, 52, 57) and all day. GRRRRRRR! Always funny when guys call other people uneducated and self-important losers when their own attempts at humor consists of stuff that most third grader have outgrew when they hit the first grade and you keep getting outsmarted at every turn without even realizing it.

    And revielle Thanks for the astute observation. Now I undertstand why I can’t ever remember who she is. I didn’t have the proper persective.

    She’s not a punk. She never said she was a punk.

    She’s a little bitch ass girl with a bad attitude.

    I think that sums up the person she pretends to be perfectly. If she put that on a tshirt and started wearing it around maybe she’d finally break into color and turn into a real person like those Canadians in Pleasantville did after they found out people had sex and roads went to other places.

    Woodhorse I liked that line about the earrings. Something abot the timing. Barbado Slim nice response to rageboy.(56) You did. Thanks for the link. I’m on my way to check it out now.

    Any idea where she made those comments because I’d like to go make fun of her there as well.

  19. Dan

    First.

  20. djfredflintstone

    I don’t even know what to say about that. the guy started off like he was an even bigger idiot than she was and for a second or 2 it looked like she was actually pissed off enough by it to do something about it. Then the guy starts outright fucking with her and she ends the interview by saying thank you very much with that little prim schoolgirl voice. Like I said, I don’t know what to think.
    It was nice the way she defended Venice from smelling like eggs. Maybe I’ve had her pegged all wrong.

  21. Binky

    Ok – 104 was a bit harsh. A laV was on TV yesterday and it was painful even if you were just surfing by.
    Her audience is 12 year old girls. And who the paparazzi follows around remains a mystery…

  22. MissDior17

    I have never been against Britney.

    As for Avril, she’s a hypocrite. She bitched about Hilary duff having girly pop songs and then she goes and does the same thing.

    Avril flashed her underwear [as once scene in the superficial], next thing you know she won’t wear one.

  23. MissDior17

    seen*

  24. Britney *might* be more famous/well known in the States especially compared to Avril, but Avril will definitely be around longer and continue to become more famous every year…

    For instance, Avril sings live – Britney lip syncs – re: watch Avril singing on Mad TV completely live and alone, not long after Ashley Simpson’s SNL problem.

    Also, Britney tried and failed to star in her own movie, but Avril is taking her time doing small roles and voice over work instead of being the lead star in a movie (which she certainly could get if she wanted to).

    And Avril is expanding her portfolio slowly and skillfully (singing, acting, voice over work, modeling, etc) but Britney – aside from endorsing a perfume with her name on it – does only one thing…

    Oh, and maybe Britney does some of charity work – although I don’t know of any – but Avril dedicates a lot of time for charities. i.e. visiting sick kids in hospitals, and performing songs for charities like War Child (who sell one of her songs on a CD and she has also worn their shirts in concert).

    BTW, how old are you who wrote that ‘article’? 50? The only reason Britney is better known is because she has personal problems. Avril doesn’t make her own life public and she has a lot more respect in their audience (age group) than Britney does… even one of Britney’s own fan sites closed down because they had enough.

    Check and mate.

  25. UNCLE NED

    As crazy as she is, I’ll defend our Britney over this Canadian piece of trash any day of the week. When Britney was at her best, she was 10 times cuter than this Dudley Do-Right-looking monster ever was, or ever will be. When Avril was doing fucking Community Theater in fucking Toronto, Britney was the star of an off-Broadway show in New York City. Before this ugly shit got her first period, Britney was a professional working TV. Britney exuded happiness, and the fun of being a girly-girl. This black creature exudes nothing but negative, black bile. Fuck you, you Canadian whore! Go to Hell!!

  26. UNCLE NED

    And #124 – obviously you want to suck this dog’s cock, you know way too much about her, you probably work for the bitch. None of these celebrates do charity work that doesn’t help their careers, and isn’t promoted by their publicists. Get real. “She’s expanding her portfolio slowly and skillfully” – sounds like your expanding your mouth to take in her super-sized dick. When this bitch Avril sings at the Super Bowl, or the NYC tree-lighting ceremony, get back to us. Until then, stop sucking this girl’s dick so much.

  27. YOU BUNCH OF F’N ASSHOLES, ANYONE CAN SING,BRITTNEY IS FREAKIN WEAK. SHE CAN’T STAY MARRIED, SHE CAN’T TAKE CARE OF HER BABIES, SHE BREAST-FED THEM ALCOHOL AND DRUGS AND ANYONE STICKING UP FOR UP IS AN IDIOT!!! AVRIL CAN NO ONLY SING, BUT PLAY MUSIC,UNLIKE BRITTNEY. AS FAR AS PARIS’Z SLOPPY-SECONDS, WHO ISN’T HER SLOPPY’Z?! BRITTNEY NEEDS TO QUIT SINGING AND GO HOME AND PLAY MOMMIE FOR A FEW MINUTES OF HER DISCUSSTING LIFE, SO WE CAN ALL FORGET HER MEAN, BALD, ANTI-CHRIST FACE SHE SHOWED THE WORLD. I NOW THINK K-FED WOULD BE THE BETTER PARENT, SO FREAKIN FIGURE. LAST COMMENT…….BILL CLINTON ROCKS, MAY HE LIVE ON FOREVER..

    #125 uncle ned no need to slam my enitre country because of this retarded little douche. After all do I hold Paris Hilton, Kiki Dunst, Fergie et all against the good old USA? Of course not, although I can’t really see them coming from anywhere else.

  32. allykitten85

    She is just a bitter bitch, always pissed off at the world. Stop trying to be so punk and angry, Avril, and go get a life.

  33. Avril Lavigne is a c-word….meaning…a cheetos eater when she is high, all the time

    >obviously you want to suck this dog’s cock

    Nice language.

    >you know way too much about her, you probably work for the bitch.< No, although I am a fan, live in the Napanee area (where she grew up) and have a blog about Avril - although I've never met her in part because she moved away before I moved here
    .

    > None of these celebrates do charity work that doesn’t help their careers, and isn’t promoted by their publicists.< Sorry - I didn't know you were an expert in celebrity charity work and could speak for each and every celebrity over the history of mankind.

    My mistake.

    But for the record, most of what I've seen about Avril visiting sick kids in hospitals was from pictures fans posted online who were there (ie on flickr and photobucket etc), not in some magazine or other places a publicist would try to use it to promote Avril.

    > Get real. “She’s expanding her portfolio slowly and skillfully” – sounds like your expanding your mouth to take in her super-sized dick.< I think you need an anatomy lesson because I'm thinking you've never seen a naked woman before (and "accidentally" walking in on your grandmother while she's taking a bath doesn't count).

    But I do apologize for writing words you don't understand and therefore believe must come from a publicist or someone far higher educated than you are.

    >When this bitch Avril sings at the Super Bowl, or the NYC tree-lighting ceremony, get back to us.< Okay - Avril sang at the closing ceremonies of the Winter Olympics. What have you done?

  44. Rodney

    avril is a dumb whore

  45. Elizabeth

    Avril sucks and has always sucked! I remember her always talking shit about Britney way back. I knew she was a jealous little Canadian bitch then & I still think she is! Yeah Britney is a dumb bitch that can’t control her dam life, but I still can’t stand that poser, wannabe ass Avril. Why the hell does she still kae High School songs and videos when she is a married adult grow up and then just die Avril!!! What the hell, britney do the same and Paris as well! I am sick of these bitches!!!!

  46. Janet

    She is forgetting this and so it that lesbian looking Pink that if it wasn’t for BRITNEY opening the door for people such as Jessica Simpson,Mandy Moore, Christina aguilera she wouldn’t even be selling shit ! Oh, and stop with the hating avril the site has you pinned down in an area meant for paparazzi to show up and take pictures of you. Its like saying ”Come take a picture!” while your marriage is in trouble you should be focusing on saving it not dissing the lady whom you’ll never be for starting your ass in the right direction. Now you’re wearing skirts and shit so don’t be all ”Oh, its her fault” you brought your own new image in because ”sex sells” blonde hair, nose job and all the sudden you ”love pink” get off it.
