YOU CAN NEVER GO HOME AGAIN. NO, BEST NOT TO: Avril Lavigne has upset folks in her home town by telling Blender that Napanee is a bit rubbish:

"There is fuc*k all to do. It's just a little town where everybody knows everybody and their business. There's nothing to do except get drunk."

It must be hard, that, Avril - sometimes people across the street knowing that you're dating Fred Durst or whoever when you do your darndest to only release the information to the gossip columns.

Anyway, the mayor of Napanee has responded, claiming Avril doesn't know what she's talking about - something we can quite believe:

Gord Schermerhorn is disappointed with Lavigne's comments about Napanee, which boasts a 15,000 population and has just opened a multi-million dollar community centre and Arena. Schermerhorn says, "I have grown up here and there is more to do in Napanee than to get drunk."

We're sure he's right - if small British towns are anything to go by, the drunkeness will be only the start of it: there'll be cleaning up vomit, organising emergency contraception, trying to fix the smashed bus-shelters... it can keep you busy the whole day. We're also not sure about any "arena" which takes second billing to a "community centre" - we're guessing a baseball pitch and some bleachers, right?

Oh my...
If Avril can find nothing better to do in Napanee than 'get drunk' then I have to question her credibility...
(I find it highly doubtful than anyone with such a blatant lack of imagination could be writing her own music)
I'm a local resident of Napanee - Avril needs to get off her 'nobel pole'.
Nuff said!
