I don’t fight. I don’t believe in it. To clear things up I got attacked by 5 people last night out of nowhere. Not cool. My face is fu**ed.

As in black eye, bloody nose, hair ripped out, scratches, bruises and cuts. So not ok to be abusive to others. Violence is NEVER the answer

Thank you @EvanT for coming over to visit me today and bringing me a hello kitty ice pack. I’m so lucky to have a friend like you.

Avril Lavigne hands“Push is definitely one of my favorite songs on this record,” Avril enthused about the track ‘Push’. “All of my girlfriends love it. It’s a song about fighting for love and believing in love. When you’re fighting shut up, move forward and move along and let’s do this because we love each other.”

As for ‘Wish You Were Here’, Avril said it’s “a song about missing somebody for a day, for a couple of weeks, for a month. Somebody who you’ve had a falling out with. I mean there’s so many different circumstances in life that we all go through where we do truly miss somebody.”

“‘Stop Standing There’ is a track that I wrote on my own, at home, on my piano,” Avril explained. “This song is a song that I think a lot of girls can relate to. It’s kind of about that guy who’s just standing there and not really doing anything and you’re like ‘Hello, do you feel what I feel? Are we on the same page? Is something gonna happen? Make a move.'”

Avril Lavigne Walmart Soundcheck

Avril Lavigne

Avril Lavigne did a live set for Walmart Soundcheck, which included performances of her new single ‘What The Hell’ and past hits ‘Girlfriend’ and ‘I’m With You’. During an interview, the Canadian pop singer talked about growing up in a small town, singing in church as a young girl, the new single, getting more stripped down and raw with her new album ‘Goodbye Lullaby’, the story behind the album title, writing half the songs solo on the release, wanting vocals to be the main instrument this time on the recording process, and more.

“I grew up in a really small town. I was kind of a tomboy and played a lot of sports. I started singing in church when I was a little girl. I loved singing,” Avril explained about her childhood.

On the first single ‘What The Hell’, Avril explained, “It is very much like my older stuff. It’s more pop rock. The rest of this album is not really like that. It’s different. This album is more stripped down and raw. With ‘What the Hell’, it’s a fun, upbeat anthem about not really taking things too seriously and just having fun and letting loose.”

Discussing the recording process, Avril said, “This album for me I’ve grown a lot on, and I’ve always been involved with all of my albums, writing on every single song of mine. I’ve never had anybody hand over a song. For this album, I wrote half of the record all by myself without a co-writer. I produced two songs on this record, so I definitely did more on the production side and playing instruments and writing on my own, and one of the songs I wrote when I was fifteen, it’s called ‘Darlin’, and I put it on this album so it’s a really special record.”

“My approach for the recording process was different,” the singer explained. “I wanted the vocal to be the main instrument. I didn’t want to be buried in a ton of tracks, because a lot of the time you can give a good vocal performance but there’s so much loud drums, loud guitars and a bunch of compression and this and that, so you don’t really hear the quality of the vocals, so I really wanted the listener to hear the emotion and to feel what I was feeling at the time of the performance. A lot of these songs are really deep and really meaningful to me. I kind of started off with an acoustic guitar and I would sing to it, and then build around the track.”

Talking about the message she’s conveying on the project, Avril said, “I would say the overall theme to this record is about finding inner strength and moving forward and just living and learning. It’s about life and all of the different emotions we go through and I think the overall emotion is bittersweet. There’s a blend of happy and sad emotions.”

Avril Lavigne Wins Battle To Release 4th LP After “Bureaucratic BS”

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.
