A blog I follow just posted a gif from that song by Avril, called 'Girlfriend'. We all remember this, I believe, it was a big hit.
But seriously, both song AND video are so absolutely cruel and egocentric that I can do nothing but roll my eyes when ever I see/hear it.
Avril is bitching. That's pretty much it, she's bawwwing about how she wants a dude who - that's right - already has a girlfriend.
She's his girl. He allowed her to be his girl, therefore, gee, I don't know, MAYBE he loves her! Maybe she's a really sweet and kind girl, why else would he date her?
But no, don't you dare to think that, because Avril knows what the girl is really like.
Let's see a few statements she makes during the song.
She's like so whatever
What's that supposed to mean? That she's boring?
Well, at least she's not boasting her ego through 50% of the song, while bitching about Avril in other 50%.
No. the girlfriend is so whatever, while Avril is a motherfucking princess, who's so damn precious and is also very convinced that the guy only thinks about her all the time.
that's a bit egoistic. Way to teach little girls how they have to be when they grow up. Because that's who listened to her music at that time, as far as I remember. Little girls up to the age of
14, maybe even 15?
She's so stupid
What the hell were you thinking?!
In the video, the girlfriend is portrayed as some stereotypical nerd. They go so painfully into the stereotype that it makes me sick.
Also, 'she's so stupid', HOW CHILDISH IS IT TO SAY THAT??
How old was Avril at the time, like 21??
Seriously, all the way through the song, it looks as if Avril and that chick are ex-best friends, and Avril is just straight damn bitch, devouring herself with jealousy. I bet it's not really a song about a boy, it's her, trying to be a bitch and steal her ex-BF's boyfriend. I bet that's the story.
How else would you explain such pathetic childishness on this song.
So come over here, tell me what I want to hear
Better yet make your girlfriend disappear
I don't want to hear you say her name ever again
Basically, the whole song is I want, I want, I want. She doesn't give two shits about anyone else's wishes of well being, she's the center of the universe, she's the most important person, she wants that dude, therefore she will diss the girl she may or may not know.
And the video, it's just plain cruel.
They treat that poor girl, like if she was some kind of a villain. Through the video, Avril picks on her with a bumper car, pulls her out of the photo booth where she wanted to take photos with her boyfriend, who just lets Avril do all that and has photos taken with her instead. Avril also steals their food in the MOST FUCKING ANNOYING AND WANNA-BE KAWAII WAY POSSIBLE, she also hits the gold ball in the girl's head, which, may I say, is very fucking painful, golf balls are heavy and that was a pretty bad blow. The girlfriend proceeds to fall down and stumbles into a pool of water.
Then there's a short scene in which Avril and her punk buddies are being so kool and hardxxcore (aka. bullies) to some non-punk girls in the bathroom. Because we all know that punks want to kill everyone who's not a punk. Also I feel horrid to use word 'punk' and 'Avril' in the same sentence.
Well then, there's a scene in which the girlfriend barely walks, is dizzy, beaten and soaking wet, and what does she see? Yeah, Avril hitting on her boyfriend, AGAIN.
She gets pissed and wants to tackle Avril, but, oh, how hilarious, Avril moves off the way and the girlfriend tackles a toilet booth instead, falling over along with it.
And the worst thing in the whole video is, that the boyfriend does NOTHING to protect his girlfriend.
He doesn't look unhappy when he's with her, then why the fuck does he let other girls treat her like shit?
Seriously, if I was him I would stand up for someone I'm supposed to love, wouldn't you?
Basically, that was attempted to be a short rant that ended up being a review of one of the most horrid and cruel supposed-to-be funny videos I've ever seen.
You know - FOR KIDS!
