Blind Items Revealed #2

June 25, 2019

This foreign born singer was A list back in the day for her first record. Then, she was ticked off that her secret was revealed. That secret being she didn't write any of her hits even though she had claimed she wrote them all. That led to a falling out with the people who did which is why she has never had a hit since. Probably also the reason people think she was replaced with a body double.

Avril Lavigne

The body double conspiracy theory is one of my favorite silly ones. :)

What was the writing group called? 'the matrix' possibly? a case of the Madonna's/Beyonce's, being in the same room=writing credit.

Nope its because she refused to grow up.

She will be s8tr girl when she's 75 if she lives that long just like Madonna is almost a grandma and still the material girl.

From 2002 to 2013 she had nine singles make the top twenty five. Five out of six albums have gone gold or platinum. Even though her latest album which came out this year isn't selling it still made the top twenty in America. Maybe the body double took over this year. That must be it.

Huh huh. "Tick"ed off... Lyme disease... oh, Enty, you sly little devil...

@no I said much the same thing (although admittedly in less detail) when the blind was originally posted. Avril had lots of hits over a long period of time. That deserves some respect, Enty, even if her music is not my style personally.

I posted this in the original blind and still want to let it be known... I am not affiliated whatsoever with her, haven’t seen/spoken to since the 1st lp... so have zero stake in this at all. But do believe that it should be noted...

Ok... this is something I actually know stuff about 1st hand. I can tell you Avril absolutely wrote on all these songs. What the percentage was is something that comes up in agreed splits, but she totally was on these songs. What is more annoying was the team she worked with who were hired to work with her, fighting with a 16 year old in the press about it. They never had any significant hits after Avril, even got a record deal, with an album that never came out. If you are in your 30's fighting with a 16 year old, you are an idiot. The narrative they built through publicists went against Avril and not the loser writers (they are assholes). Notice that the other writer she worked with on the album (Clif Magness) never came out saying he wrote all the songs...because he didn't, they were co-written with her. Granted, she is a bit of an unpopular and undesirable person these days, i will forever stand up for her contribution on that 1st LP.

well I believe you the songs sound like they were written by a 16yr old
