Sum 41 lead Deryck Whibley has been dealing with a lot of big life changes. Most recently, he’s finally received a legal name change, dropping the last name Lavigne that he acquired when he married ex-wife Avril Lavigne.
Canadian angst queen Avril Lavigne has been dealing with lots of flack and criticism over her 'Hello Kitty' video. In fact, the hashtag #avrilracist became a thing on Twitter yesterday (April 23), prompting the singer to respond with tweets of her own, addressing the fans that called her video "racist" for its depictions.
Update: We will add the video when Avril officially releases it.
Avril Lavigne certainly gets bold and colorful in the music video for her new single, 'Hello Kitty.' The 'Complicated' singer is essentially having a love affair with Japan in the video, as she is constantly backed up by a squad of crimson-haired Japanese dancers, sings about Hello Kitty and gets super excited as a chef serves her some delicious-looking sushi.
Remember when Avril Lavigne beat out Justin Bieber for the title of most famous Canadian? Miley Cyrus sure does, and she's jokingly pissed that she didn't land the No. 1 spot -- even though she's, um, not even Canadian. The 'Wrecking Ball' singer is so annoyed, in fact, that she hilariously duked it out with the reigning champ herself during her Bangerz Tour stop in Toronto last night (Mar. 31).
