The annoying thing about April Fool’s Day is the fact that it makes you question the veracity of everything that crosses your desk. For example, Avril Lavigne‘s original “Breakaway” demo (which Kelly Clarkson later recorded and turned into a career-defining smash) finally surfaced online today but there is some debate as to whether it’s real.
The Canadian superstar’s army of fans certainly think so. They point out that Avril admitted her April Fool’s prank with Miley Cyrus (the divas pretended to beef) but kept quiet about “Breakaway”. It kind of sounds like her but the stripped back, country-tinged demo was recorded way back in 2001, so it’s hard to tell. Anyway, take a listen after the jump and decide for yourself.
Is this legit or do Avril Lavigne fans have a great sense of humor? Have your say in the comments below.
