Is Avril Lavigne's 'Hello Kitty' the Worst Double Entendre Ever?

By Brendon McCullin, Hollywood Staff

When Avril Lavigne's video for her new single Hello Kitty hit the net, the reaction was swift and unkind. There was the claims of racism for Lavigne's objectification of expressionless Asian backup dancers to claims of intellectual plagiarism for the similarities with Gwen Stefani's Hollaback Girl video.

The video, with its candy-colored (one sequence is set in what looks like a Sanrio store) backgrounds and funhouse props, is about as misguided an attempt at trying to be hip as you'll ever find. And one giant problem is the song itself.
