Who's hotter than Avril Lavigne? "Girlfriend" - the first single off her LP, The Best Damn Thing, was her first #1 single in the U.S. ... and the accompanying video has been just as hot. The playful video features Avril in three key roles: as a red-haired, bespectacled "nice girl," as her saucy, dark-haired interloper, and as her blonde, rockin' self. Some think she even plays the guy, but I'm not sure about that.
What's great about the whole thing is the unapologetic meanness of the song's story, in which the dark-haired girl mocks, pushes, demeans and laughs at the hapless librarian-type girl, swaggering off with the fought-over hottie by the end of the tale. It's a swell message for Avril's many 'Tween fans - in fact, it's just plain uplifting: If you don't get what you want, go ahead and take it in an unfair and underhanded way.
To be fair to Avril, she does portray both the loser and the winner in this sketch. And, what the hell, it is just an Avril Lavigne song. So let's enjoy the video - or, since this is "Framed" - let's enjoy the greatest frames of the video, complete with Framed-type commentary.
