Katherine Tulich of the New Zealand Herald spoke with Avril Lavigne who took a shot Britney Spears when she commented, “I could never dance around with a bunch of background dancers because I’m a writer and I like to rock it on stage. She’s doing her thing and has had success and now I’m going to step up and do my thing.” Another thing she won’t do is dress in sexy body revealing outfits like Spears, which she credits to her upbringing. “I think because I was brought up in a Christian home I was kind of careful not to swear in my lyrics,” she explained. “I felt kind of guilty when I’d go to swear because I felt I would be disappointing my parents.”
