Oh Avril! Lavigne Said WHAT?

| Filed under: Avril LavigneMadonnaMusic Minute

madonna-avril-lavigne-career.jpg

No harm in shooting for the stars, we guess.

Avril Lavigne was recently asked which musician's career she would most like to emulate with her own. Obviously, there is only one answer to this question, but somehow, it seems kind of funny coming from the virtuoso behind Sk8ter Boi. She revealed to sources:

"I definitely can see myself still being out there in 20 years' time. I want to be around the way Madonna has done it. She's had her life but still maintained her career throughout."

Hmm. Lofty goal, to be sure. Maybe not that too realistic either.

But hey, who knows what kind of music she'll drop in the years to come. She might find a way to give her career some real longevity.

Still, we're 100% doubtful she'll last as long as Madonna has. Just saying.

  1. 1

    I doubt she will last another 2 years.



  2. 2

    Wow, she's out of her mind if she thinks she can become Madonna #2.



  3. 3

    of course she cant be like madonna,. noone can. madonna is like God. but she can dream.



  4. 4

    I don't see anyone duplicating Madonna's longevity but there's no harm in aiming high.



  5. 5

    of course noone can be lioke madonna. she is the original one but this are great words



  6. 6

    i don't think she will last..at all..she still makes music that sounds childish and the same.. she doesn't event much of anything -_-.. just blah..



  7. 7

    yeah sure lol



  8. 8

    who the fuck listens to madonna anymore? lol only old people i guess. anyways. avril lavigne is way better than madonna and yeah, avril is correct. she will definitely be around for a long time with more awesome music. avril is gonna own 2011 with her new album goodbye lullaby. this is her year, no one elses. and i thought madonna was dead already. lol



  9. 9

    Why aren't you sweet Mario! That must have been really difficult , good for you!



  10. 10

    LOL - what a delusional moron. truth is, she hasn't maintained any kind of viable musical presence for years now, hopefully, she invested well while she was popular.



  11. 11

    I think shes actually a decent song writter so if nothing else she has that to fall back on

    Madonna can't sing or act, and she's still around. Anything is possible. Re: Trancelike – There are PLENTY of people out there that hae had LONGER careers than Madonna. Cher, to name just one.

    So she wants to be around the way Madonna has done it. Sure she does. So?
    Do you think your website will last as long as Madonna has?
    We're 100% doubtful you'll last as long as Madonna has. Just saying.
    Old Perez, is that you?

    Re: white_is_ugly – lots of ppl.millions. madonna has many hits. incredible tours. or some reason her last tour broke all the records.most viewed tour ever,so many ppl care about M-. in europe shes #1



  15. 15

    Re: GG78 – yes she can she won a golden globe for evita and she sings live-. and she has the bets performances



  16. 16

    Re: Trancelike – Chuck Berry. Tina Turner. Tony Bennett. Rod Stewart. Paul McCartney. John Fogerty (Creedence). Neil Diamond. Dylan. Elvis Costello. Pete Seeger. Styx. Springsteen. Simon and Garfunkel. Michael Jackson started in early 60's. Clapton. Kiss. Police/Sting. Motley Crue, Bon Jovi, and Van Halen have been around as long as Madonna, not to mention a lot of hugely successful country artists who were around then and still are. I've missed many, I'm sure, and all still performing or touring, except MJ, rip. I could go on.



  18. 18

    It's a little weird to me how people worship Madonna. She's good and all, but she's not a God.



  19. 19

    theres nothing wrong with her having a goal of wanting to be around a long time. will she do it? who knows…but theres no harm in what she said.



  20. 20

    Re: cripbabe111 – Yet Avril reappears after all these years with a single that's going top 5 and is probably going to duel with Britney's for #1.Mario spent years trying to kill this girls career but guess what,she's all over the entertainment media right now and has great reviews from Billboard to MTV to Rolling Stone.Makes me wonder who the delusional moron is.



  21. 21

    Re: GG78 – Point taken.



  22. 22

    Still see that you are hating on this girl. What's your obsession with her anyway?



  23. 23

    She's saying she wants to follow a similar career path not try to be "Madonna #2". The fact she's been in the music business since she was a teen and had numerous hits….I think she's done a good job so far to be relevant. Many others have fizzled away sooner. I think she needs to get back to her roots and write from the heart and stop trying so hard to be "cool" and "relevant". Dressing up wearing pink skulls doesnt make her cool. Her biggest hits were the ballads…that's how the general public likes her not bouncing around in bright colors and reminding us all she likes skulls and punk shit.



  24. 24

    You're just ticked she didn't say Lady Gaga.



  25. 25

    100% certain perez won't last that long



  26. 26

    Re: Robdawg – Haha xD.



  27. 27

    Oh how very SASSY of you Perez. Your stilll a BULLY!



  28. 28

    Re: @v@ – Ya ok.I'm not even a Madonna fan.If Avril had mentioned Dylan or Clapton that's who I would have referenced.Tbh though,apart from McCartney,few if any of those mentioned are or were selling out huge venues around the world at Madonna's age.My bad.

    PS:You missed my local band Rush.

  29. @v@ says – reply to this

    Re: Trancelike – Just saw Crue a few months ago. Full. Saw Sting a couple of years ago with Lennox. Full. Saw Styx open for Def Leppard.
    Full. Saw Van Halen on Wolfie 1st tour. Sold Out.
    Oh, yeah. How could I forget Ozzy on that list? Just saw Ozzy with Rob Halford opening. Full.
    That's just as bad as forgetting RUSH. Hangs head. "Our great computers fill the hallowed halls…"

    Re: Trancelike – Oh, all in an approx. 20,000 seat venue.



  31. 31

    y'all are fukin retards..
    madona sucks balls.



  32. 32

    first of all dumb fucks, she never said that she wanted to be the "2nd madonna" avril has much more talent then madonna, she can sing, play instruments, and write. madonna is over with, just because she did many things first does NOT mean she is the last to be defeated.



  33. 33

    Re: @v@ – I was thinking 50-60,000.Wherever those caverns are that Madge played that I kept reading about.Anyway,back to stanning for my girl.Later.



  34. 34

    FOR ONCE I AGREE WITH FAT BOY…. BITCH WONT LAST THE LAST MINUTE OF THAT 15 MINUTES. DING, DING, DING… TIMES UP!!



  35. 35

    Avril Lavigne has no shot but your precious GaGa does? I honestly don't see a difference in the two except that they dress differently. Avril can admittedly sing better than Gaga. You're no music expert, Perez, stop acting like it.



  36. 36

    There's nothing wrong with aiming for longevity in this biz, particularly when a lot of your peers tend to be more short-sighted and want to accomplish too much in a short period of time.
    Besides, I'm sure a lot of people were laughing at or doubted Madonna when she announced 25+ years ago that she wanted to rule the world!



  37. 37

    Avril has had her hits, I'll give her that but she's never had that presence like Madonna has had. In the 80s, Madonna was hands down one of the biggest acts behind MJ. Even to this day, she's selling out arenas all over the world! Avril isn't even relevant anymore. But it's good to have goals. :)



  38. 38

    Avril Lavigne so rocks! She been writing her own song when she was a teen and plays the quitar and have number one songs too. As for Modonna… she did not write her own songs in the being of her career or play the guitar untill her later age (50's). So top that gay little boy.



  39. 39

    Re: Trancelike – Beyonce..she is the quintessential modern day talent. sing dance and a brand.



  40. 40

    She was awesome in the early 00s. She wrote them and they were very deep and personal. soo if she stay away from the radio friendly bullshit she will have longevity. i swear Record company alone can destroy a talen's career.



  41. 41

    Ahaha! Yeah, okay, good luck with that Avril. Your career is already in the crapper.



  42. 42

    Actually, Avril's got a better shot at the title of Madonna 2 than anybody else I can think of. It's hard to think of anybody else who's had as many hit songs in the last ten years as Avril. She's already proven the haters wrong that she's just a flash in the pan. Britney is a joke, Xtina is a bomb, Lady Gaga has yet to prove she has staying power, and while The Best Damn Thing wasn't a great album, I think the history books will say that was just a bump in the road. Goodbye Lullaby will tell the tale. There's no other album this year I'm looking forward to more. Go Avril!



  43. 43

    Avril is more talented than your wifey Lady Gaga,IDIOT….and way more talented that your new BBF Nicki Minaj…..suck my cock,looser



  44. 44

    by the way,Perezita,your website is gonna last less than Avril's career,ha ha



  45. 45

    wow you do really hate avril dont you? you never said any positive thing about her.



  46. 46

    Why do you have to bring her down like that? She said she WANTS to do it like Madonna, as in she's going to TRY. I was in 5th grade when I first started to listen to Avril and her album meant so much to me as a kid and her music still connects with me and others I'm sure. And for people who want to doubt her lasting power….She's already lasted longer than about 99% of people who get a hit.



  47. 47

    Re: chansen8 – Madonna was playing guitar in two bands before being famous, even drums. She wrote half of the songs on her first album on her own.



  48. 48

    do u ever have anything nice to say about avril lavigne…ur clear dislike for her is annoying.



  49. 49

    oh dear perez
    I doubt you at least became half of what Avril Lavigne is just saying

    Avril can be like Madonna if she wants too why not? she's in a good position she just need…. I don't know something else to really get in that level ;) .



  50. 50

    oh just stop hating on avril. your so biased when it comes to music. avril has been having a good career. im really sick of you only supporting gaga, britney, and dumb ass indie artists. its really annoying. even if their songs are shit "ZOMG AMAZING". aka britneys new song.
