Avril Lavigne Conspiracy Theory Resurfaces on Twitter
All it took was one tweet from a certain @givenchyass saying that “Avril Lavigne is dead & was replace by a look alike: a conspiracy theory thread” to resurface a long-standing rumor that rockstar Avril Lavigne conspiracy theory that she had died and been replaced by a body double named Melissa.
This story has been talked about on the internet world as far back as 2005 and 12 years later, people are still buying it. The conspiracy theory about Lavigne’s death became one of the top trending topics on Twitter after the tweet.
The theory, which is believed to originate from a Brazilian fan page, claimed that Lavigne, who was at the top of her career at that time, killed herself after her grandfather died in 2003. The conspiracy goes on to muse that Lavigne’s record label hid this from the public and used Melissa to pose as Avril to continue profiting off the singer’s fame.
The story claimed to have “proofs” such as Lavigne’s red carpet photos (Avril wears trousers while Melissa prefers wearing dresses and skirts), pictures showing “differences” in facial features of pre-2003 Lavigne and the present day Lavigne. The site also claimed there were hidden “clues” in songs such as on the record “Under My Skin”, which the fan page said means that Lavigne is under the skin of the other singer.
While all these supposed proofs may convince some, all one has to do is to read a Buzzfeed article entitled, “Here’s How I Accidentally Made an Old Avril Lavigne Death Hoax Go Viral”, to know that the conspiracy theory was meant as a joke.
In reality, Avril Lavigne is alive, well and active on social media – even tweeting that she is currently working on a new album.
As for @givenchyass, who rekindled the rumor, her user description now reads “I made Avril Lavigne trend on twitter. How is your life going?”
