EPISODE 109: WAS AVRIL LAVIGNE CLONED?

Some studies estimate that there’s a 1 in 135 chance that out there in the world somewhere, is a doppelganger who looks almost identical to you… 

Several conspirators believe that when Canadian Pop Punk Princess Avril Lavigne came face to face with her doppelganger, they made a secret, lifelong pact and this entire time, we’ve all been tricked into following and listening to an imposter… 

The theory goes that shortly after the release of her debut album, the singer fell into a deep depression worsened by the loss of her grandfather, and tragically took her own life.

But because of how much money the young singer was bringing in to her label, they hired a body double, a near clone of Avril named Melissa Vandella to step in and pretend to be her for the rest of her career.

EPISODE 109: WAS AVRIL LAVIGNE CLONED? (CONSPIRACY) CRACKPOP

Episode Contents:

  • EXHIBIT A: AVRIL’S HANDWRITING HAS CHANGED
Compare Avril’s handwriting from the beginning of her career (left) to her recent handwriting (right), taken less than ten years apart. Several point to the stark contrast in her writing styles as proof that “old Avril” and “new Avril” are two completely different people.
  • EXHIBIT B: MELISSA CHANGED UP AVRIL’S MUSIC AND STYLE
Avril started out with a very punk and rebel style, wearing neckties and band tees; but quickly evolved into this colorful and preppy new version of herself that was heavily criticized for appropriating Japanese culture in her music video for “Hello Kitty.”
  • EXHIBIT C: AVRIL’S VOCAL SIGNATURE HAS CHANGED OVER TIME
The video above is offered as proof that Avril’s singing voice has changed significantly over the years; listen to the differences here for yourself and ask yourself which version had the better singing voice?
  • EXHIBIT D: THERE ARE DISTINCT PHYSICAL DIFFERENCES BETWEEN AVRIL AND MELISSA
Some fans have noted a difference in her eye shape and nose shape as well as her jawline over the years.
Taken from the original blog who started the conspiracy, the above photo depicts Avril’s natural freckles (right) and the artificial ones on Melissa (left) who also appears to have several herself that were missing from early Avril.
  • EXHIBIT E: AVRIL’S BIZARRE PHOTOSHOOT WITH “MELISSA” WRITTEN ON HER HAND
Nobody on either side seems to know exactly where, when and why this photoshoot was done, but as you can see, oddly- “Melissa” is written in Sharpie across Avril’s fist.
  • EXHIBIT F: MELISSA HAS LEFT CLUES BEHIND IN HER LYRICS ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED TO AVRIL
Several songs like “Happy Ending”, “Nobody’s Home”, and “Slipped Away” contain lyrics that some fans believe provide details about what really happened to Avril Lavigne. For example, “I miss you so bad. I don’t forget you. It’s so sad. I hope you can hear me… I remember it clearly: the day you slipped away
was the day I found it won’t be the same.”
