Lavigne was also slammed for her allegedly copying of Gwen Stefani's Harajuku girls moment. Lavigne's video got a lot of people of hating on it, to the point that they are dubbing it the WORST single and music video from Lavigne's entire discography.The Hello Kitty video might be Avril Lavigne's answer to Miley Cyrus crazy antics last year that made her a powerful force in the league of pop girls in the industry today.

On the bright side, some will still find her cute in her colorful outfit. Looks like the 29-year old superstar found the ''Fountain Of Youth'' because she still looks the same girl that entered the music scene a decade ago. This video might lead to more crazy videos from Lavigne or from her other contemporaries but one thing is for sure, Lavigne had some kawaii fun in her newest music video and her legion of fans are here for it.
