  • smellers

  • was avril’s fan

    what happened to you??!
    where did “fall to pieces” or “i don’t give a damn” go???
    pretty shallow for someone who used to sing these songs

    @was avril’s fan: You just don’t get it do you?Another ignoramus crawls out of a cave to spew it’s 2 cents worth of nonsense.

    Negative comments mean one thing. You’re trying too hard. Just have fun. The song is catchy and you know it makes you feel good so just stop taking yourself too seriously. We know you aren’t listening to Arcade Fire with the blinds drawn. You’re dancing to this and hoping the video of it doesn’t end up on YouTube.

    Only imature people are you, that listen to a song of an artist that you not even like… This is why the world is so unhappy, because of unhappy people like you. If you all like Katy Perry, Kesha, Britney Spears, Nicki Minaj, and a lot of other, you NEVER should’ve speak about Avril’s lyrics. This is only the most Pop and commercial song on her new album, Goodbye Lullaby, and this is why it’s her new single. Before saying some stupid things like that, why don’t you wait the album come out and listen to it? Think about it! Bye, bye, loosers.

  • TeCKnoE

    Oh my gosh come on now she said that this was the only pop single from her album her lable is genius i have a ear for music and this is going straight to number 1 the lables putting out a great single like this one to get more attention and shine on her album its going to be great the song is relatable to everybody and extremely catchy so you can feed into your thoughts and think her most personal album yet is pop like this and if it was so what bottom line is that this is basically a buzz single..AVRILS BACK

  • Robert

    @AvrilBackToRock: Avril has write or cowrite all of her songs.

    It´s a really good song and way better than the childish songs by people like Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Kesha or Lady Gaga.

  • robert

    @AvrilBackToRock: Avril co-wrote or why would she make the effort of flying out to sweden and how does working with a producer whos wrked with Britney make her like Britney? They both used the Matrix as producers but i’m sure your not going to say that Im with you is like Britney. Your clearly delusional and ignorant

  • stella


    let’s just have fun! can’t wait to hear her new album!

  • Emmanuel

    First place in which I see hate on the song! EVERYONE LOVE IT
    it was what we expect, it has a great production by Max Martin and I just hope the song really smash on charts

    honestly I want THIS to be the most overrated song ever!!!

    AVRIL IS BACK!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Kelsey

    Man people, get a life! Yea ill admit this isnt one of her best songs ever.. every artist has a few songs that fans dont like! but she said that this song was the pop song of her new album so just because one is like this dosnt mean they will all be!

  • Dave

    While I understand the “immaturity” statements on here, I also don’t entirely think that this song came out of nowhere. Perhaps it is sincere? She broke up with her husband and apparently immediately went into party mode. Perhaps she had to grow up too fast with the responsibilities of her career and now she’s feeling a little rebellious. Immature? Probably. Entirely fabricated? Perhaps not.

  • Shelby


    I love how you’ve taken it upon yourself to label anything ‘different’ as ‘indie’. That said, when the CD comes out and is still mainstream, are you going to say that pop is now ‘indie’?

    If she really had that rough of a time getting what SHE wanted produced and promoted, she should have just waited out her contract and found a company that would support her goals. If that wasn’t feasible, she has outs available to her in her artist contract with them.

    Whether I like her as an artist or this song as a single doesn’t matter. The fact that she’s personally going out of her way to ‘blame’ the song on RCA shows that she hasn’t learned her way around this industry yet. If this song is really that different from the rest of the album, I’m afraid she might not have a lot longer in the business to develop the sense she currently lacks.

    That being said, I wish her all the luck. I hope she stands by her work and doesn’t find other excuses down the line if it fails.

  • Tom

    This deserve to be #1 next week and not Britney for many reasons.

  • miranda

    shes a little too old or this, but i guess if you dont factor that in she LOOKS the part and the song is catchy.
    she knows what her market it is and she’s going after it, the fans will flock.

    thats the point. shes not trying to appease her old fans because they grew older as SHE grew older. shes trying to bring in new ones this is definitely a new approach for people who started as kid singers in the industry.
