Avril Lavigne isn’t taking the recent accusations against her of song stealing sitting down. The young singer is crazy pissed – like any good punk would be – and has posted a scathing response to the drama on her personal website. The Canadian writes:
"You may have heard some news that two guys who wrote for some band
from the 1970s I have never in my life heard of called the "Rubinoos"
are trying to sue me. They have a song called "I Want To Be Your
Boyfriend" that has no musical similarities to the song "Girlfriend"
that Luke Gottwald and I wrote together. They claim that a small part
of the lyrics are the same and are saying that I took these from them.
I had never heard this song in my life and their claim is based on 5
And about songwriter Chantal Kreviazuk:
"Chantal has also made false accusations about my writing skills. I
am so over this topic…My decision to discontinue working with Chantal after co-writing
together on my second record was simply based on the fact that we had
no hits together. That is why her name is not on this record, despite
her numerous attempts to be included, which were always denied. From my
perspective this is a clear case of bitterness. Chantal is upset that
she didn’t get to be a part of my record."
Well, even if her songwriting skills are in question, there’s no doubt at all that the tiny starlet is damn good at sh*t talking.
