Avril Lavigne Siap Rajai YouTube

Avril Lavigne (stuff)

Video lagu bintang pop Avril Lavigne bakal merajai YouTube. Pasalnya, video lagu berjudul 'Girlfriend' itu kini telah berada di posisi kedua video yang paling banyak dilihat di YouTube.

'Girfriend', single pertama dari album 'Best Damn Thing' tercatat telah dilihat sekitar 89 juta kali di YouTube. Sementara di posisi puncak yakni video 'Evolution of Dance' hanya unggul dengan terpaut sekitar satu juta hit.

Namun sejumlah keraguan muncul tentang adanya rekayasa sehingga video Avril itu bisa sedemikian populer. Apalagi ada sebuah situs penggemar yang bisa secara otomatis menambah jumlah hit video itu.

Seperti dikutip detikINET dari Stuff, Kamis (26/6/2008), pembesut situs itu berusaha menggalang dukungan agar video Avril bisa segera menjadi yang nomor satu di YouTube.

Namun usaha ini bisa terganjal. Pasalnya, YouTube punya kebijakan ketat yang melarang pemakaian sistem untuk meningkatkan jumlah hit. Pernah video bertajuk 'Music Is My Hot Hot Sex' dihapus meski mencapai posisi puncak karena adanya pelanggaran macam itu.

Avril Lavigne

Media image

In Lavigne's official MySpace page, she affirms that her music genre is Pop/Punk/Rock;[59] but All Music Guide and other reviewers consider her "Punk, Punk-pop, Pop/Rock, Alternative Rock, Alternative Pop-Rock, Modern Rock and Post-Grunge". The reason for the confusion appears to be for her punk-like appearance, however, she has frequently stated that she's "not punk", and that she never claimed to be.[60] Lavigne said this despite her many claims to be a "skater punk" in her earlier years. Lavigne cites many early punk bands and figures as influences (most notably Sid Vicious), but her music has little in common with 1970s punk.

Personal life

In the January 2003 issue of Seventeen magazine, she admitted to "snagging a bite of Matt's cheeseburgers every now and again." Also in a recent interview, she said she prefers not to eat meat, but will not say she's a vegetarian "in case anyone caught her eating meat".[61]

Lavigne has a star tattooed on the inside of her left wrist that matches the style of the one used for her first album artwork. It was created at the same time as friend and musical associate Ben Moody's identical tattoo. In late 2004, she had a small pink heart-shaped tattoo featuring the letter 'D' applied to her right wrist, which represents her now husband Deryck Whibley.[62]

In February 2004, she began dating fellow Canadian singer Deryck Whibley, the lead singer/guitarist of punk band Sum 41. On June 27, 2005, Lavigne and Whibley became engaged.[63] Whibley proposed to Lavigne by surprising her with a trip to Venice, a gondola ride, and then a romantic picnic.[63]

The couple married in a Catholic ceremony attended by about 110 guests on July 15, 2006 at a private estate in Montecito, California.[64] When asked if they were ready for kids the couple said "not right now but somewhere down the road."[65][66]

Avril once said in an interview that her favorite party song is "Hey Ya", by Outkast. She likes listening to Third Eye Blind, Oasis, Marilyn Manson, System of a Down and Blink-182, and loves especially the track "I miss you". Asked what she would put on a mix tape to a boy she liked, Avril answered: "Iris, by Goo Goo Dolls. I'd put a few Coldplay and Oasis songs. Radiohead -- The Bends is one of my favorite albums."[67]


Lavigne has been involved in a number of charities, such as Make Some Noise, Amnesty International,, Camp Will-a-Way, Music Clearing Minefields, U.S. Campaign for Burma, Make-a-Wish Foundation and War Child. She has also appeared in ALDO ads with YouthAIDS to raise money to educate people worldwide about HIV/AIDS.

Lavigne worked with Reverb, a non-profit environmental organization, for her 2005 east coast tour.[68]

Lavigne also covered 'Knockin' on Heaven's Door' for War Child's Peace Songs compilation.[69]
