If she writes (or someone else writes for her) another I'm With You, I'll forgive most of her sins. That's a damn...good...song.

Yeah, that's probably her best song (of her singles, anyway).

Britney is holding her own against Lady Gaga right now. At least I presume she is.

Plus, the whole electropop/dance-pop craze didn't start with Lady Gaga. Britney did it for half of her entire career.

Unfortunately, there's a ton of pop ballads out there that sound like I'm With You. These days pop ballads are becoming more and more generic.

What REALLY caused Avril Lavigne’s career to go downhill?

Hey guys. I just want to have a SERIOUS DISCUSSION with everyone here for a moment.

I admit that I like Avril Lavigne. I really enjoyed Avril's first three albums- Let Go, Under My Skin, and The Best Damn Thing.

But now, Avril is quickly fading away.

Her two recent albums, Goodbye Lullaby and her newly released self-title album, both tanked. And due to all these years of lackluster albums sales, she is unable to tour.

It appears that Avril’s fanbase has considerably dwindled. And the general public doesn’t seem to know that she still exists.

Amidst all of this, she repeatedly gets destroyed by the likes of Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Rihanna, and Miley Cyrus.

Avril has now become completely irrelevant in the world of pop music .

At the same time- Beyonce, Britney Spears, P!nk, and Kelly Clarkson are still going strong.

What do you think caused Avril's career to deteriorate? Why do you think Avril is struggling while other mainstream female pop artists are faring better?

Without being hateful, I was hoping if you guys could help me determine the ROOT CAUSE of Avril’s downfall .

Thanks for listening, guys.

Not even GAF or Ashley are this passionate about crappy pop music.

Beyonce is still going strong because she makes fucking awesome music.

In short: why would anyone listen to anything by someone involved with Chad Kroeger?

Let's not forget that before she married Kroeger and his volumes upon volumes of hits, she was married to one of the tossers from Sum 41. Great taste in men right there.

She is still big in Asia. I'm seeing her live in Hong Kong in Feb and she has nearly sold out a 14,000 arena. She needs to go to where the interest is. Unless she has another 'Girlfriend' up her sleeve she needs to stick to maintaining her huge fan base in China/HK/Korea/Japan/SE Asia. Lots of money still to be made.
