Sometimes I worry whether I am missing out on some trend or some new wave of celebrities. There is so much out there to be seen and heard and discovered and I am just one man. A very large man to be sure and wearing Zubazz until New Years for sure, but still just one man. So, I worry that I may have missed something important or that people care about someone more than I thought. I was under the impression that most people though Avril Lavigne was kind of a waste of space. She is to Gwen Stefani what 98 Degrees was to N'Sync. I was going to use O Town instead of 98 Degrees but to be fair Avril has actually sold a few records and I blame O Town for the fact that Diddily Piddily is on MTV 24 hours a day.
If you were too late or too young to hop on the Gwen Stefani train you could hop on to Avril Lavinge's train and she would provide you with pop music and a clothing line while wearing things you have never seen anyone else wear in public that didn't charge by the hour.
So, that was my general impression of Avril. Sure it is nice to talk about her divorce and random hookups with celebrities, but I saw a report in Radar that said she was making out with a guy no one recognized at a bar in New York while the guy kept ordering her bottles of champagne and vodka. So what? I didn't really care but at least 20 sites including that Holiday Inn guy all wrote about her and the story. Really? Do we care about her? Am I missing something? Am I going to see a bunch of people in plaid skirts and a tie and purple streaked blond hair storming my grocery store?
