Oy, don’t get Avril Lavigne and Chantal Kreviazuk together in the same room….catfight!! Chantal Kreviazuk recently spoke to Performing Songwriter magazine for the June issue, and in the conversation was told that they had recently interviewed Avril Lavigne, whom Chantal used to write with.
I find it funny that it’s in Performing Songwriter. I mean, Avril, songwriter? Avril doesn’t really sit and write songs by herself or anything. Avril will also cross the ethical line, and no one says anything. That’s why I’ll never work with her again. I sent her a song two years ago called “Contagious,” and I just saw the track listing to this album [the newly-released The Best Damn Thing] and there’s a song called “Contagious” on it—and my name’s not on it. What do you do with that?
According to Pop Dirt, this is not the first time that Avril’s songwriting capabilities have been in question. The Matrix (a songwriting team) apparently took all of the credit for the songwriting on Lavigne’s debut “Let Go”. This pissed her off to the point that Avril claimed she would never work with them again. Hmmm. Who do you believe?
