Last night, Avril Lavigne premiered the video for “What the Hell” on ABC Family’s site. That channel is an odd choice, considering that the video opens with her in bed wearing only a bra and panties singing about kissing her boyfriend’s friends. But I guess that’s what their “VIEWER DISCRETION IS ADVISED” warning is for. After tossing on a tee and cut-off shorts, Lavigne ditches her man because she “just needs to be a little crazy.”
Here “crazy” means stealing and eventually crashing a cab, interrupting a playground basketball game, and buying some new clothes. The clip, the first single from her upcoming album Goodbye Lullaby, is fun but pretty literal. Check it out after the jump to see if she gets back with her boyfriend when the crazy’s out of her system.
