Avril Lavigne in Defense Against Critics Over Her 'American Idol' Appearance


Avril Lavigne


After she was accused of mocking contestants during her appearance on the talent show, Lavigne blames poor editing for causing trouble and claims viewers were only shown 'that side of her'.

Singer Avril Lavigne has hit back at critics who accused her of mocking contestants on "American Idol", blaming poor editing for the controversy. The "Sk8er Boi" hitmaker appeared as a guest judge on Simon Cowell's hit TV singing contest in 2009, but was later criticized for appearing to spend most of the show stifling her giggles at the poor standard of contestants.

She has now spoken out about the negative remarks, claiming viewers were only shown "that side of me" and insisting she'd love to go back on the program. Lavigne tells Britain's Sunday Times Magazine, "I was actually really impressed by a lot of the singers and I gave a lot of positive feedback and was very encouraging. But the stuff that actually aired was mostly me making faces and laughing - so viewers only saw that side of me. (But) I hope I can go back on. I had a lot of fun."
