Avril Lavigne Gives A Half Assed Apology


Because most of you have a life, you probably did not notice that Avril Lavigne performed in Tampa Bay over the weekend at baseball game. She was asked by the Tampa Bay Rays because, Avril's whole shtick is that she gives you punk that is 8 year old friendly. So, with that in mind she was asked to perform in front of 24,000 fans. Her performance had some technical problems so Avril decided to let out a string of f bombs and other profanities which showed just how big of a vocabulary Avril has.

Knowing she will probably not get another sports gig anytime within the next ten years, Avril should have given an apology right after it happened. Instead, she said, “We just had so much fun tonight and we want to take the tirade out and say thank you to the Tampa Bay Rays! I’m truly sorry if anyone was offended by my language.”

Where is the apology in that? Everyone was offended by her language, because it was billed as an event where you could take your kids and listen to bubblegum pop disguised as some kind of pseudo McDonald's style punk. What she should have said was, I am sorry for my language, not sorry if anyone was offended. I don't even know why I bother. She just irritates me.

Even Brody Jenner could do better then this.

Sounds like she was really saying, "Ohhhhh well what the hell" (please imagine the music to that lame song as you read).

You hire Avril Lavigne, you get what you get. I have ZERO sympathy, particularly for the parents who took their kids to the game specifically to see her sing live. Seriously? That chick has been devoid of class for over a decade.

I think since birth, Ida.

So what about it, U.S.A.? Canada would like to trade you one bratty Lavigne for one hunky Timberlake!

I wish I didn't find her so cute!

I have no problem with her apology. Some there may "not" have been "too" offended by her language. She's an adult for one, and some parents may not get into a tizzy over a few offensive words being spewed in anger.

I have a life and I knew she did this when it happened because I am a baseball fanatic. thankyouverymuch

It happens all the time in football/soccer, especially in England at least, and that's usually accidentally broadcast on TV, so it seems like a big fuss over nothing to me. I actually really like Avril, but i feel as though Enty knows something i don't :-/

@RQ -- "Canada would like to trade you one bratty Lavigne for one hunky Timberlake!"

If you guys take back Avril AND Bieber -- AND adopt all the Kardashians -- you can have Timberlake.

Oh, but you have to give us Gosling, too. ;-)

RocketQueen said...

You are NOT getting Gosling, but you can have Reynolds.
Oh, and you get Bieber for keepsies! What I really want is for the Kardashians to get convicted of something trivial so we can turn them away at the border.

"I’m truly sorry if anyone was offended by my language."

I think that is actually sufficient.
I'd be willing to bet that the majority of the kids there have heard an F bomb or two at some point in their lives.

She is such a waste. I can't stand this chick. Isn't she almost 30? She acts like she's still a teenager, extremely immature. She's a classless piece of .... and I can't stand her music, that she claims to have written, but really had other people write for her.

Avril is pretty, but she is pretty immature and comes across as a right bitch. I think she has some issues to be honest, although exactly what is anyone's guess.
