Avril Lavigne (seen above slaying the 2004 issue of Teen Vogue with Usher) has blasted back onto the Billboard Hot 100 -- not with a whimper, but with a BANG! The talented musician's latest smash ~Rock N Roll~ debuts at No. 91 this week, becoming the 17th Hot 100 entry of her career.
While Miley Cyrus was able to successfully follow the likes of Kanye West, Lady Gaga, and Beyonce to become this year's post-VMAs thinkpiece, the real issue that everyone should be talking about is the suspicious absence of Avril Lavigne. The underground rock icon has a new single out and an album on the way, making her the perfect candidate to take the VMAs stage, but I guess the MTV powers that be felt that Avril was no longer VMA material after her indie singer-songwriter masterpiece, Goodbye Lullaby, flopped on mainstream music charts.
Never one to bite her tongue over anything, the outspoken musician addressed the snub of the century during an interview on Australia's Kyle and Jackie O radio show yesterday.
