  • dcstarinthemaking

  • emily

    she needs to reinvent herself, move forward.. I hope this album is not exactly like the other ones, she looks and acts like she did 7 years ago.. she needs to move on ;/

  • http://B Sligo lambert ^____^ cute

    Not still good they 2 crap girl not sweet or cute and pretty

  • he ha he

    she cann’t say mick JAGGER !!!! what’s up with that ?

  • katie-elle

    wow that was crappy.
    anyways, if she is promoting her album, why is she singing other people’s shizz?

  • jimmyjo

    She looks like he she has fangs she has really bad teeth. Looks like a ferret..

  • katiebelle

    lol,this is SO NOT crap,imagine how kesha sounds without her autotune,she cant even sing a line

  • jessica

    @katiebelle: well when avril is actually singing it sounds decent. but the rap-ish parts.. i guess ke$ha is better at that.

  • justme

    Avril probably wishes she wrote that song, but girl is almost 30, too old now, time for a new sound and look. (her hit What The Hell is something a 20 year old should sing). Ke$ha does it better and she’s only 22, so OK to sing about about hangovers, partying, ect. . Avril stuck in a rut, all her songs sound the same, very teeny-boppy stuff she sings about, but too old for that now and needs a major music and image overhaul. And the pink and green highlights should be the 1st thing she gets rid of in that overhaul.

    I always think she looks like a little mouse or a rat (but ferret works too!), with those beady eyes and chompers (almost vampire like teeth she has). Boring, she has had the same sound and look since she’s a teenager, time to mature as an artist.

  • anonymous

    WOAH Avril needs to get those split ends cut off or start using hair conditionner!! Never realised she had such sharp pointy teeth, yikes!!!

  • Chris

    What an utterly lackluster performance! I expected way better from Avril. Was this done really early in the morning? There was zero energy in her singing! Ke$ha is not a great singer, and Avril is usually a lot better, but in this case Ke$ha’s live performances of Tik Tok blow Avril away! One piece of advice that’s always good: if you are going to cover someone else’s song, you’d better either do it a lot better then the original, or you’d better bring something special to the performance that the original singer didn’t bring. In this case, Avril failed to do either.

  • Vj

    She sang beautifully

  • mimi
  • linna

    wow Kesha looks amazeballxx on that photo.. (: js

  • efron

    She still looks like an emo teenager with teen angst. Time to move on Avril!!
    I loled at the ”little black stars”, Kesha calls her fans ANIMALS and Lady Xerox MONSTERS, whats up with that? Why not call them FANS?

  • sourpatch575

    Avril isn’t even singing. SHES JUST SAYING THE WORDS! I have to admit Kesha is wayyyyy better!!!!!

  • Anonymous


    She covered Ke$ha’s song because that’s what they do at Radio 1. Everyone does covers. She probably did perform some of her own too.

  • tina

    that’s the way to show ppl that you are deep, mature and a emotional , she’s so fake , she has been saying that GL ” is deep raw etc etc ” this is what her chose to cover

  • Julie

    I really liked the “you build me up” part how it sounds unplugged.

  • http://ruuun Bruno

    okay, she sang it well but i prefer goodbye lullaby songs than ke$ha haha. keep going avril! :)

  • http://misacapellaviatwitter viva

    This is an upbeat song tuts! Not a lazy just chilling rap? When you hear a tik tok song, it is to get you energized hello! And the guitarist is smiling?! OMG
