Avril Lavigne wants to assault our ears with a new song called ‘Hello Kitty’ which is apparently about her love of the Japanese cartoon brand but also has a “flirtatious” and “sexual” side to it… and that makes me want to chop off my eyes and ears.
Here’s what she told Digital Spy about the track:
“‘Hello Kitty’ was such an interesting topic and subject,” she said. “It was really exciting for me.
“I didn’t want it to sound like anything I’d done before. I wanted it to sound over the top so I ended up hiring a new producer to help me with it.”
Asked if the song has a double meaning, she replied: “Obviously it’s flirtatious and somewhat sexual, but it’s genuinely about my love for Hello Kitty as well!”
Okay, please tell me what fucked up universe you have to live in to associate a child’s cartoon cat brand and sex? Unless you’re a plushie, but even then… girl, keep that behind closed doors. I don’t think Avril’s mentality has evolved beyond a 13-year-old’s, so we’ll have to give her a pass on this one.
