I Think You Need A New One: Avril Lavigne & Lil Mama "Girlfriend (Remix)"

Avril Lavigne & Lil Mama "Girlfriend (Remix)"

dir. by ?

In the real world Lil Mama is a teenager and Avril Lavigne is a recently married 22 year-old, but on record Mama sounds like a rapidly maturing rapper while Lavigne wallows in the voice and style of a confused adolescent. Together they make a strangely solid team, which should guarantee another couple months of torture for everyone sick of that bubblegum chorus ringing in their ears. The video is an inspiration-less rush job, which comes as no surprise considering the shoe-in popularity of the song regardless of the work done here. But let's hope in ten years - when Lavigne is packaging a singles collection around "Girlfriend" - Lil Mama looks back at this, in the midst of a multi-platinum career, and has a good laugh.
