If your name is Avril Ramona Lavigne and you are credited as a song writer kindly have the decency to write an actual song.
Avril's songwriting ability, where songwriting ability means literally changing a few words of an already written song on notebook paper decorated with pink goth skulls with bows, is debatable. In my opinion, I doubt she actually had much to contribute. The reason I doubt that is because of who else often gets song writing credit on her songs. Scott Spock, Lauren Christy and Graham Edwards, songwriters and producers and also known as The Matrix, hardly need help from teenage girls to write formulaic pop songs. They have not needed her help to write songs for a long line of other manufactured pop artists and they have managed to not need Avril to win seven Grammy nominations. I decided to look up the famous songs for which The Matrix is known and voila** jackpot!
"I'm With You", not a horrible song, credited Lavigne, solely, with the song writing everywhere I looked until I looked on The Matrix web site where they also claim credit. Who to believe...man, that's a tough one.
If you're described as a singer and you need Auto-Tune, kindly have the decency to NOT call yourself a professional vocal artist. If you need an audio processor to make your off key singing sound perfectly tuned, you shouldn't be tormenting us with your voice you should be tormenting your family, the ones who indulged your misplaced ambition in the first place.
All hail Auto-Tune, creator of perfect pitch and masker of frauds. Bless us with your balance and crystal clear tuning. Amen. What can Auto-Tune do for you? You've seen the dog on Auto-Tune? If not here's a link, I think it's too long. Much like this post. Everyone has seen "Charlie Bit Me", but have you seen it on Auto Tune? Here you go:
This is what googling "pink stripe skull bow" gets you.
*Lavigne or la vigne means "the vine" and interestingly poseur means "poseur" because, silly, it's a French word to start with. Maybe I need to offend everyone and start doing a French word of the day and today's word would be poseur. Which is ironic because I'm an anglophone pretending to know and presuming to define a francophone word which is pretty much what a poseur would do.
**Voila (Vi-O-la or Wah-LA in American) means "eureka". It's becoming apparent I might need to adopt a different style if I need to append a glossary at the end of a post.
