I always hear people compare these two since their music is qute similar. But, who do you prefer? I like Avril a lot more, all her songs are great because I can relate to a lot of them. Kelly is good and talented too, so this is no an attempt to bash her.

Also, I think Avril is a better singer. I know many will disagree with me and say she is a bad singer, but her recent live stuff is a lot better :)

Ouch, a toughie, I luv'em both. However, Kelly is MUCH more mature and original in her songs whilst Avril Lavigne's music is becoming less original. So I say Kelly, but I love Avril.

She rocks, you can't deny it.

Avril. But I don't really listen to Kelly. Kelly has a great voice and some amazing lyrics but I just prefer Avril :). Thank an Avril fan on this forum for that :D.

I think Avril Lavigne is by far the better of the two, although I don't like her new image at all.

Definitely Kelly Clarkson. What Avril produces is definitely not music IMO.

Avril before, and now Kelly.

Comparing their third albums, Avril started singing "Girlfriend" type songs, and Kelly started writing her own stuff, which is a bit darker than her work while she was still the "Idol", but more mature as well.
It's funny how Avril seemed to be independent and different before, but towards her third album started looking more like all other popular singers, and Kelly did just the opposite.

She also seemed a bit into herself while talking about the competition a few days ago:

Someone like Kelly Clarkson is beautiful and has a pretty voice, but with me you get a much stronger image. I'm tough, I have a look that girls want to copy, and I sound a particular way. It's good if you're not easily ignored. And I'm not.

Kelly, she sings about more meaningfull things than stealing other people's boyfriends. :whi: Avril has started *****ing about and it's really annoying me. Plus Kelly has a better voice by far: She's real. ;)

avril considering she was the first to start all this "rock chick girls" after she came out we had people like
kelly clarkson
hilary duff
lindsay lohan
ashlee simpson etc
all trying to do the whole avril rock chic thing and they all failed.

Avril has only had 2 songs that are like that. Skater Boi and Girlfriend - which I think is good because it's nice to have a little change. All her other songs all have a lot of meaning to them.

Also, Kelly's song Breakaway was co-written by Avril and I think it turned out to be her third top 10 single (In america)

Kelly can't sing live, and she won American Idol.

Anyway, I prefer Avril Lavigne. :) Kelly Clarkson tries too hard when she sings.

You all probably know how obsessed I am with erm.. Avril. :D

I do like Kelly and she has a good voice, but Avril is just my favourite ever ever ever ever singer. :D Shes an awesome person who makes amazing music IMO. :D

I know her new stuff aint like how she used to be but.. shes grown up and is having fun. And shes trying new things... I would rather she experimented and made mistakes and stuff than did the same old stuff all the time. ^_^

Plus.. look at the success of TBDT :D

Your 'opinion' is the type that sets people off in glorious reactionary fashion and before you know it threads get closed - you'd make things easier on yourself by wording your negative opinion on something better. Less blunt that is. So yeah it was a dumbass comment.

It wasn't even an opinion. It WAS a dumbass comment since saying it wasn't music is just plain stupid. Because it IS music, what else would it be?

I think you need to watch your words and choose them carefully before you want to post your "opinion".

kelly. Avril has an obnoxious voice, kelly actually is good at singing. Avrils songs are obnoxious, kellys are more mature.

oddly, Avril lavigne wrote Breakaway.

neither, but if theres one i hate more its avril, she acts lik a 13 yr old now. but kelly's boring. doesnt really matter to me.

I like Avril's older stuff, same with Kelly. They're both getting a bit "dim" IMO, but if I had to choose, I'd choose Avril. Although I love listening to them both.

10-09-07, 23:12
Kelly can sing better, but Avril seems to have the better songs atm. At the moment I'd marginally prefer Avril.
Having said that, another song like 'Girlfriend' would change my mind!

Avril Lavigne. I only like a song or two from Kelly. She's not bad and I got nothing against her, she's just not my type of singer.

It was an opinion, actually. Whether you like it or not different people have different ideas on what defines music. What else could it be? Well IMO it's not music but in other people's opinions it is. I'm fine with that. I don't attack other people because of what their opinion on this is.

IMO i would never compare the two, ive got all the albums for both of them, and would never have thought that ppl would think they are similar. i dont think i pove the prefer one over the other. i'm listenin to avril's 'when you're gone' right now, and its brilliant!
but fro me, neither is better, they are on a par because i dont think their music is similar at all
