Who should be more offended: Japanese or Katy Perry for getting ripped off? You know, I still giggle every time I think of when she tried to market herself as a punk rocker. So silly.
I'm given the understanding Avril Lavigne is wildly popular in Japan. If this is indeed the case, she's not trying to parody Kawaii culture but rather playing to her audience. It makes sense to me; of course I have nothing against them and it may be my modest opinion, but Japanese girls have very poor taste in pop culture. Either way, if she's loved over there, they can have her. Don't think anyone here has ever really enjoyed her or her music in the first place and we all agreed to right out ignore her ever since the Chad Kroeger experiment. Just remember Japan, no backsies!
