    Very catchy song,but I also think it’s very immature for her age.

    Please note what Hmm said. It’s not Avril’s fault her label won’t let her publish the music she wants to publish. Don’t hate on Avril because of the crap the music industry puts good musicians through these days.
    I love Avril Lavigne, and I’m sure the album is going to be good. So calm down musician haters. Turn your anger and resentment towards the music industry and the big record labels, and make a difference that way. Bi*ching and moaning about the artists isn’t going to get anything done.

    Oh come on..Avril you are so much better than this song..I didnt like it when I heard a little clip a while ago. What happened to the maturity of when your gone or alice?

    She writes majority of the songs on the previous albums whats going on with this one?

    Jen Says:

    This is crap – I thought that she was 26 and supposed to be a little more mature.
    As for RCA forcing her to do it, I thought part of her whole schtick was that she was “different” and “independent” and “her own person”. If that’s the case, why does she let her record label force her to do sh*t like this?

    Immature, pureile crap, marketed as “fun” pop music. Absolute rubbish.

    you only live once. And people should live to the full. If this is how avril wants to live this way she should . i like this ………. i like everything she’s done and it never hurts to be different.

    I hear this song and do not see any musical evolution its sounds like a song from miley cirus and that is not good
    where is the avril form “complicated” or “im with you” this is not cachy is boring honestly I expected more from her

    Não gostei. Avril para mim virou mais uma cantora pop \o/

    @elisa: Read the Hmm and Anthony comments and you’ll understand the genesis of this song and why it’s Avril’s lead single.I’m pretty sure you’ll find the Avril stuff you’re looking for makes up the bulk of this album.She knows we expect more from her.Have a little faith.

    Addie Says:

    You know what? I like this song. So what she’s 26? She can write her songs however she pleases. Yeah she’s not sixteen anymore- you know she can’t stay sixteen forever. Obviously if you don’t like this song- you don’t like this kind of music so just shut up and go away. Nobody’s forcing you to listen to it- you did so that’s your fault. Half the super famous celebrities out there are older than her yet you’re in love with them! Please tell me how you’re going to trash her and yet be brainwashed by them.
    Avril can do whatever she wants to do cause you know what?
    She’s 26.

    Trevor Dow Says:

    EVERYONE comments like she’s 26 and she needs to grow up don’t really make any sense… Katy Perry is like 25 and you aren’t saying the same things about her. At age 26 i think and hope we can still have fun!

    Fran Says:

    its doesnt matter if she is 16 or 26 the song SUCKS !!!
    and by the way all katty perry songs are way better that this one
    i liked better “Girlfriend”

    Kar Says:

    This song will be a surefire big hit, no doubt about it.

    GD Says:

    i´m sad to say but this is another bad song like other today. i love her first and second albums. third album was still ok. Singles of these albums were very good but if this song is single i´m really courios how bad this album will be. i hope i´m wrong.

    HAHA, Everyone needs to chill the faack out. Avril said herself: “This song is the least personal song to me off this album, it’s a fun and funny anthem. It has a broad message about personal freedom.”
    So what’s with all the negativity? She told you straight up what to expect so stop acting so surprised. I think it’s a great party song, I already have it on repeat AND on my “ooh baby party” playlist. THAT’S RIGHT. This song’s better than half the other **** other artists are putting out these days, & you all know it’s gonna be a big hit, so stop hating. You know i’m right. Plus if you’re freaking out about “how her musics soo different from when she first came out” it’s this little thing called GROWING UP. That usully tends to happen *insert sarcasm & ***** face here*. Obviously she’s not gonna stick to the same music she did when she was 16, common guys be serious here. If you were real fans you’d stop judging her. Her albums NEVER disappoint, they’re always top notch material, ALWAYS. So please, save all the BS to yourselves. LOVE YOU AVRIL, soo stoked for your new album, have been waiting for too long.

    Ok, can someone threw Max Martin out of my country! Is this the best they come up with 2 weeks in Sweden? Avril when you gonna write and record your own songs (if you can)?
    The song is catchy as anyone else that Max Martin (Cherion) have made. If Avril wrote this song (as she didn´t) she would hang herself as bad as the lyrics is. Congrat AVRIL you now is a Britney who doesn´t get deserve respect as REAL musician.

    Although im looking more forward to hearing her self-penned acoustic songs this is a really fun catchy song thats great to dance to and I love her vocals. She actually didn’t want to make these type of songs but she compromised so she could have the record she wanted (for the most part) released.

    AvrilBackToRock Says:

    @Addie do you know what!! That Max Martin doesn´t write with the artist or record something the artist have wrote their self. He ONLY records his only stuff created in his camp. So this son have no Avril son writers credit in real, of course they gonna put name anyway on the song.

    Mann Says:

    It’s not that catchy to me anyway and the ending truly sucks!!! (La, La, La, La) Any true artist can bang out a commercial hit thats true to them self this is just awful. I saw the performance on tv it was imbarasing like cringe worthy.

    Stop acting so pressed when we all know you’re dancing to the song in ur bedroom. It’s damn catchy and fun. It’s not like every song on the album will be like this. LOOSEN UP PEOPLE.
