Teen punk popster Avril Lavigne tells Radio 1 about the stresses of being, erm, pigeon holded: “I always hate it when I get labelled punk or whatever, because I’m not and I never claimed to be punk. I always found it really hard when I came here that people would label me. I’m like ‘why are doing that because I’m a person?’. You can’t label people, give them one word and say ‘this is what you are’. I was a growing teenager, changing all the time.” So that’s us told.

  • I’m sorry to have to do this, but it really bothers me when people (and Avril, for that matter) say she never claimed to be punk.

    “Yes, I was a cheerleader and I did enjoy it, but people hold that against me. I’m as punk as they come.”
    “I created punk for this day and age. Do you see Britney walking around wearing ties and singing punk? Hell no. That’s what I do.”
    “I’m not punk! I never said I was punk. And my music is deffinitely not punk. People are calling my music punk sometimes and I’m like “Ok … I don’t think so.”
    So which is it … punk? Or not-punk?

    And when she says the media labels her, it’s a bunch of BS.

    “I hate it when people say I’m not a true punk. I don’t go around calling myself punk. I never have. That’s what people need to know – it’s not me saying that, it’s the media. I’m a rocker.”
    “… the thing I hate about this, being in my situation, is that you get labeled.” (If you were paying attention, she just labeled HERSELF a “rocker”. Not the media … she did it herself.)
    Hope this changes a few minds.

  • Changes a few minds to what, exactly?
