Avril Lavigne checked in with fans on her official web site blog on Wednesday (November 10), talking about the long awaited release of her follow-up to 2007’s ‘The Best Damn Thing’, while taking a shot at her record label, RCA. The Canadian pop singer appears to have dug in her heels to release an album RCA wanted her to rework. Avril told her followers:
I have been sitting with this record for a year now. It’s really special to me. I have produced a couple tracks alone for the first time, written solo, with friends, I have pushed myself and I feel proud.
In saying all that, this has been a really difficult record for me to create and to release. Not only is this the most meaningful and special record I have written, it is sincere, honest and close to my heart. But for the first time I experienced a bunch of bureaucratic BS. People do their best work when they are doing what they want, love and is natural for them, not when you are forcing them to be something that they are not.
From the beginning of my career my message has always been to be yourself and stand up for what you believe in. Follow your heart.
