Radio 1 reports Avril Lavigne is once again bemoaning those that label her punk. She fumed, “I always hate it when I get labelled punk or whatever, because I’m not and I never claimed to be punk.

You can’t label people, give them one word and say ‘this is what you are’. I was a growing teenager, changing all the time.”
