Avril Lavigne ditches her man to be a bad girl in 'What the Hell' video: Watch here

Avril-LavigneLast night,  Avril Lavigne premiered the video for “What the Hell” on ABC Family’s site. That channel is an odd choice, considering that the video opens with her in bed wearing only a bra and panties singing about kissing her boyfriend’s friends. But I guess that’s what their “VIEWER DISCRETION IS ADVISED” warning is for. After tossing on a tee and cut-off shorts, Lavigne ditches her man because she “just needs to be a little crazy.”

Here “crazy” means stealing and eventually crashing a cab, interrupting a playground basketball game, and buying some new clothes. The clip, the first single from her upcoming album Goodbye Lullaby, is fun but pretty literal. Check it out after the jump to see if she gets back with her boyfriend when the crazy’s out of her system.

What do you think of the video?

    What the hell… I’ll steal a car and shoplift just to get the crazy out of my system. No big.

    • I say


  • swettoons

    I think it is time for Avril to grow up. This video feels like every other video from when she first came onto the scene.

    • Will J

      totally agree. It’s infectious, but she sounds lyrically and appears to act like she’s still 16

    • twizted lette

      i agree. i liked her first album and i can stand the second but she needs to grow up. didnt she just get married? she needs to grow up and act her age.

  • Scott

    It’s just a fun video, Avril looks amazing.

  • anya

    Fun video but kind of stupid. But I don’t know, was there was enough product placement? Seriously, I felt like I was watching an ad for all her lines with a little shout out to some camera.

    • Kalie

      I agree. It was a fun video, a little silly, with obvious product placements. Do they think that everyone who watched this video is going to immediately go out and buy her perfume and clothes?

  • Thad

    Love it!

    Sorry, very dumb. I never thought Avril would take a turn for the Miley.

  • Eloy

    though I really like Avril, and I really like this song..I was expecting something more exciting….she looks like bored like “what the hell let’s shoot this trash”.
    I was expecting her to act like she did in Girlfriend or Skater boy.
    I am disappointed about this video. Still I like the song.

  • KC

    I think the term “attention wh!re” was coined for het.

      Shut up, you’re just jealous. She is an amaxing singer and is very beautiful, and we look very much alike. And I bet you’ve done worse things than she has

      • gigi

        i hope she can spell better than you.

  • Carrie

    It was weird to see her in her bra and panties. She’s usually pretty covered up. Odd video.
