“I’m becoming a little more comfortable in front of the camera. I wasn’t used to it before. I was thrown into a new lifestyle and everything I do is kind of filmed or photographed. I’m a private guy. I like to keep to myself. I’m shy, maybe. It gets kind of tricky for me but, I’m beginning to find the fun in it. I don’t take myself too seriously so if I’m front of the camera, that’s what you’re going to get, me clowning around."(Bruno Mars)
[Complicated is] a staple song that not only marked her debut, but her entire career. It started out charting low, making its way up, and before you knew it, that sticky chorus had infected everyone and it was a #1 single. Consequently, that gave huge power to her follow-up, Sk8er Boi, and then when IWY hit the radio, capturing a mature audience, she was everywhere.
Complicated was the start of her huge debut, it defined Avril and the LG era in a way no other song (apart from Girlfriend, which was a HUGE hit in 2007) defined any of her eras.
10 years later, you still see Complicated's influence. Avril can change her sound and her style, but that song will remain forever as the song that defined her all those years ago.
