HBK-79 Posted November 7, 2010 Share Posted November 7, 2010 Hey there, fellow CP fans. I know there are tons of people who hate Avril Lavigne. But consider pop music artists like Justin Timberlake. Singers like Timberlake were widely disrespected early in their careers, but then gained a good amount of acceptance from the populace. So... How would you feel if Avril Lavigne legitimately becomes as popular and well-respected as Madonna or U2? Before anyone starts flaming me, there are several plausible arguments that I would like to express. Hypothetically speaking, let’s say- - She leaves behind the ‘punk princess’ image, and entirely re-invents her style - She advances her music and demonstrates artistic growth - She secures her credibility and establishes her authenticity - She crafts some unique, high-caliber music that withstands time - She stops writing cookie-cutter girly songs about boys, and starts recording depth-filled songs that contain vastly profound lyrics - She ditches the trendy MTV crowd, and reaches out to a more general, adult audience of discerning listeners - She sets herself apart from all the other female pop artists- i.e. Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Beyonce, Katy Perry, Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, Ke$ha, Christina Aguilera, Kelly Clarkson, P!nk, Shakira, Ashlee Simpson, Hilary Duff, and Lindsay Lohan Given these supposed conditions- How would you feel if Avril builds up a massive fanbase worldwide? How would you feel if she sustains a thriving career, achieves continued relevance, and exhibits considerable staying power? How would you feel if Avril eventually earns a level of regard and longevity comparable to that of Madonna or U2? How would you feel if she someday cements such an iconic reputation twenty years from now? Oh yea- I hope not to hear sarcastic nonsense like “Lord help us” or “That’s like hell in a hand basket”. I’m just asking for an open-minded and well-thought-out discussion among adults here. That’s all. Thank you. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
