Avril Lavigne and Her New Music Video Are the Most Embarrassing Things You'll See This Week

Warning: This video includes some profanity.

Guys, quick: before you watch this music video for Avril Lavigne's "Here's to Never Growing Up," make sure you have a blanket or a loose shirt or some free hands, because you are going to want to cover your face in horror at least a few times. And as long as you're working on that, you might want to get your phone ready to call a friend, because you're going to need to emotional support when all this is through. It is terrible.

It's just that Avril is going to be 29 years old in just a few months. And maybe it was halfway cute back when she was 18, wearing her little ties and her thick, thick eyeliner, singing about things being so complicated, but you know what? It's not cute anymore. It's uncomfortable. It's uncomfortable to see a grown woman make the choice to skateboard down a high school hallway in Chuck Taylors in her new music video. But she does it anyway. And that's very sad.

Get a new schtick, Avril, OK?

She's so pretty and she does need to tone down the eyeliner...a lot.

That said. I like this song. I dont find anything wrong with the video. She has a style and its her. I dont see why she needs to change who she is just because she's older.

To each their own I guess. Didn't see anything wrong with it, it is her type of music. Make up was a bit much, but that washes off.

Knowing she's 29 is almost as nauseating as when I found out Carly Rae wasn't a teenager. Ugh. 

And umm not to brow-beat or anything but if you never wanna grow up, why would you get engaged to a man that much older than you?

It's only 10 years. I don't get what the big deal is. I do think both of their music sucks so you aren't missing much. lol

It's her niche.  She's a pretty girl when her make-up isn't so heavy-handed.  She knows her genre and where she fits in.  It's kinda like telling Madonna to give it up already - she's 50 years old trying to still act like she's in her 20's.  I think eventually Avril will grow up or at least change her style a little bit, but personally, I kinda feel like she's paying homage to those earlier days BECAUSE she's going to be 30 soon.  I have a feeling that in the future, we'll see a different look and style from her.
