Avril Lavigne's New Music Video Is A Steaming Pile-Driver Piece Of Thing

Come closer, friends -- this brand-new Avril Lavigne video has it all: Asian fetishization, accent-mocking, Japanese clones, and really, really, really terrible music and dance moves. 

Oh, and that's not even including the fact that the song is called "Hello Kitty," because who even needs to be original to name songs any longer? Gosh.

The funny thing is, though, that Avril doesn't see any wrong with this thing at all. In fact, she went and defended it, saying that she totally loves Japanese culture, so that makes it all OK:

Oh, Avril. We questioned your decision-making skills when you put "Sk8er Boi" out, and then for the thousandth time after you married Chad Kroeger. It's really not all that surprising that you'd think this kind of (awful) thing is all right, but knowing that doesn't lessen the sting any amount, either.

To break it down: when you make a whole production parodying a certain culture, some sensitive, intelligent people might go ahead and take offense to it ... but we don't expect that you'd know much about sensitivity or intelligence, Avril, sorry.

Here's to never growing up.
