Avril Lavigne thinks date rape is "complicated".

On the surface, Avril Lavigne's pop hit "Complicated" seems like a harmless song; most pop songs are. But this one is not. Although Avril sang the song by herself, it can be turned into a duet with male and female parts. When it is, things don't just get complicated, they get downright fucking disturbing. The duet version of "Complicated" tells the story of a girl, the boy she was crushing on, and the rape that occurred on their first date. The girl, confused, betrayed, and filled with self-blame, tries to figure out whether or not to continue their relationship or have the boy arrested. The rapist, in his vocals, tries to convince the girl that what happened was no big deal and that she wanted it all along. Don't believe me? Here's a breakdown of the vocals:

DATE RAPIST:
Uh huh
Life's like this
Uh huh, uh huh
That's the way it is

FEMALE VICTIM:
'Cause life's like this
Uh huh, uh huh
That's the way it is

DATE RAPIST:
Chill out, what you yellin' for?
Lay back, it's all been done before
And if you could only let it be
You will see

FEMALE VICTIM:
I like, you the way you are
When we're drivin' in your car
And you're, talkin' to me one on one
But you become
Somebody else
'Round everyone else

DATE RAPIST:
Your watchin' your back
Like you can't relax
You tryin' to be cool
You look like a fool to me

FEMALE VICTIM:
Tell me
Why'd you have to go and make things so complicated?
I see the way you're actin' like you're somebody else, gets me frustrated
And life's like this
You, you fall and you crawl and you break
And you take what you get, and you turn it into

DATE RAPIST:
Honestly, you promised me
I'm never gonna find you fake it
No no no

FEMALE VICTIM:
You come over unannounced
Dressed up, like you're somethin' else
Where you are ain't where it's at you see

DATE RAPIST:
You're makin' me
Laugh out, when you strike a pose
Take off, all your preppy clothes

FEMALE VICTIM:
You know, you're not foolin' anyone
When you become
Somebody else
'Round everyone else

DATE RAPIST:
Your watchin' your back
Like you can't relax
You tryin' to be cool
You look like a fool to me

FEMALE VICTIM:
Tell me
Why'd you have to go and make things so complicated?
I see the way you're actin' like you're somebody else, gets me frustrated
And life's like this
You, you fall and you crawl and you break
And you take what you get, and you turn it into

DATE RAPIST:
Honestly, you promised me
I'm never gonna find you fake it
No no no

FEMALE VICTIM:
No no no no no
No no no no no
No no no no no

DATE RAPIST:
Chill out, what you yellin' for?
Lay back, it's all been done before

FEMALE VICTIM:
And if you could only let it be
You would see
Somebody else
'Round everyone else

DATE RAPIST:
Your watchin' your back
Like you can't relax
You tryin' to be cool
You look like a fool to me

FEMALE VICTIM:
Tell me
Why'd you have to go and make things so complicated?
I see the way you're actin' like you're somebody else, gets me frustrated
And life's like this
You, you fall and you crawl and you break
And you take what you get, and you turn it into

DATE RAPIST:

I'm never gonna find you fake it
No no

FEMALE VICTIM:

I see the way you're actin' like you're somebody else, gets me frustrated
And life's like this
You, you fall and you crawl and you break
And you take what you get, and you turn it into

DATE RAPIST:
Honestly, you promised me
I'm never gonna find you fake it

FEMALE VICTIM:
No no no

I rest my case. Avril Lavigne endorses date rape. Shame on her.

1,267,280 people had to go and make things so complicated.
