簡介

Avril Lavigne is young. She’s beautiful. She has a great voice. She writes her own songs. Her songs are good! What could be better?
I’m a big fan of Avril Lavigne. She’s a wild child. She’s a skater-punk. She’s an outrageous personality. She’s totally different than the other young pop stars, like Christina Aguilera, Mandy Moore and Britney Spears. At 17 years old, she’s anything but ordinary
Read on to learn more about Avril and her hit song “Complicated.”

2. 學習 - Read the dialog again to see how the vocab words are used.

Avril started wowing people with her voice and personality when she was 2 years old. She hasn’t stopped since. “I’m just coming out and I’m going to clearly be myself. I write what I feel. I never worry what others think, ” Avril avows. “I’m gonna dress what’s me, I’m gonna act what’s me and I’m gonna sing what’s me.”
Her debut CD, Let Go, features the hit song “Complicated.”
Check out some of the lyrics:
Tell me
Why you have to go and make things so complicated?
I see the way you’re acting like you’re somebody else
gets me frustrated
Life’s like this you
And you fall and you crawl and you break
and you take what you get
and you turn it into honesty
and promise me I’m never gonna find you fake it
no no no

The song is about people who are fake. Avril doesn’t like people who try to be something they’re not. She wants people to be honest and true to themselves.

討論

Like Avril, I like people who are honest and true to themselves. Many of today’s pop stars are more focused on being famous than making great music. Avril is a breath of fresh air. She knows who she wants to be, but she’s not willing to sacrifice herself to become a star.
“I always knew this was what I had to do,” she says. “I remember when I was really young, standing on my bed like it was a stage, singing at the top of my lungs and visualizing thousands of people surrounding me.”

Rock on,

I like some of her musics, but I think today she's becoming a pop star just like the ones who were metioned in the introduction except by the way she dresses.
