I love discussing conspiracy theories, (wait! Don’t click that X just yet, hear me out). I’m not a conspiracy theorist per-se, I just like to look deeper and conspiracies are thought provoking, some are just plain wacky; others maybe layered within Government cover-ups, who knows, it’s up to you to draw your own conclusions based on the evidence, (or lack there of).
A conspiracy theory that has come back with incredible force is whether or not Avril Lavigne is dead, and has been replaced with a doppelganger.
I will admit I’m a huge Avril Lavigne fan, she’s been a source of inspiration and her music helped me through some difficult times, reasons why I was sucked into this theory. I’ve seen her in concert, I have Abbey Dawn clothing and a few collectors items, (don’t judge me!).
This conspiracy started when some Avril fans in Brazil, specifically the “Avril Is Dead” Blogspot that serviced on the 6th/May/2011, this time around the discussion on this theory is in the form of a lengthy Twitter thread. After considering it both when it first surfaced and again now, the evidence is strangely convincing.
According to Twitter user @givenchyass, who started this thread, Avril Lavigne has always hated the spotlight, and due to the success of Let Go, she hired a Melissa Vandella, a doppelganger to handle all the press and paparazzi for her.
In 2003, at the height of her success, people were led to believe that Avril Lavigne committed suicide over the death of her grandfather and the pressure of fame, later found dead at her home in another rumor which circulated at the time following the release of the album “Let Go”, leaving her doppelganger behind to continue what she started, (don’t bother Googling the doppelgangers name , nothing comes up, I’ve tried, and if this is some huge cover-up nothing would anyway).
This theory has presented some compelling “evidence”, including the changes in Avril’s style, both musical and sartorial, the shape of her face; which could be answered as simply as plastic surgery, the location of her blemishes and birthmarks, much like finger prints they’re are unique to everyone, even her handwriting was called into question.
The articles in 2013 that reported Avril had died in a skiing accident as Whistler Blackcomb Ski Resort in British Columbia was deemed an internet hoax.
I’d love to hear what you think about this, just plastic surgery or part of a larger cover-up? Leave your comments below.
