Avril Lavigne is Owed $2 Million From YouTube

Avril Lavigne and husband Deryck Whibley exit Madeos restaurant with a doggy bag on Sunday night.

The 23-year-old singer’s music video “Girlfriend” became YouTube’s most-viewed video ever, and has been watched more than 93 million times. Lavigne‘s manager says YouTube owes her around $2 million for views of her videos on YouTube.

Avril‘s fans have been banding together to inflate the play count artificially by using a constantly refreshing website that adds one pageview every 15 seconds to her music video.

A YouTube spokesperson made the following statement: “We have safeguards in place that limit the efficiency of this type of behavior, to make sure that advertising campaigns running on YouTube only reach legitimate viewers and are in no way affected by inflated view counts or gaming activities.”

your welcome avril!!!
hahaha, you should thank all your fans!!

read avrilbandaids.com statement, avril fans didn’t cheat with an auto thingy

I love her but it’s kindda stupid from fans to inflate the play count artificially… that’s just silly and the fact that everyone knows makes it not real …

Am I understanding this right? She gets money from youtube because youtube has shown her video….Ungratefull for all of the publicity she got?!! She should pay youtube the money!!

Out of all videos, how did that crappy song get the most views?

She won’t get those money, because she doesn’t deserves them.
