She’s known for her pop-grunge sound.
But Avril Lavinge has more than changed up her musical style on new single ‘Hello Kitty,’ with the accompanying music video dividing fans on the Twittersphere.
The 29-year-old’s wholly insane video, shot on location in Tokyo, sees Avril singing in both English and Japanese, dressed in a cupcake skirt and leather bodice.
Joined by a group of harajuku girls, Avril leads a group dance (yes, Avril now dances) before falling back to her faithful guitar.
While Avril was clearly very happy with the video, tweeting it to her 15.6 million followers yesterday, critics on Twitter were divided.
One user wrote: “Avril Lavigne's "Hello Kitty" video is a nightmare. A nightmare!”
While another wrote: “Not to be cynical or anything but I'm actually pretty sure that Hello Kitty by @AvrilLavigne is actually the OPPOSITE of music.”
