ON WHETHER HER HUSBAND DERYCK WHIBLEY OF SUM41 DOES DRUGS: “He doesn’t do drugs. Clearly, he used to, because he talked about it, but I wouldn’t be with someone who did, and I made that very clear to him when we first started dating. I’ve never done coke in my life, and I’m proud of that. Oh my God! I could never. I am 100 percent against drugs.”

ON WHETHER SHE QUESTIONS HER HUSBAND’S FIDELITY WHILE ON THE ROAD: “No, we have a really good, strong relationship. There’s a lot of trust. I know how much I mean to him, and: I’m the best thing that’s ever happened to him.”

ON WHETHER SHE STILL GETS INTO FIGHTS: “Well, I don’t fight people anymore, I’m more mature now, and I just don’t think fighting is good. But I remember being in Toronto and walking into a CD store, and some guy with spiky hair was all, ‘Hey, Avril!’ and then started lippin’ at me. I was like, ‘Okay, this is embarrassing, I’m just going to leave.’ So I’m walking down the street, and the guy comes out of the store, still yelling. I turn around, f***in’ grab him and go, ‘What?’ And I f***in’ knee him in the balls, throw him down, and his f***in’ punk girlfriend comes over and goes, ‘What the f*** are you doing?’ And I go ‘What the f*** are you doin’?’ And it was like they totally didn’t expect me to do anything, because I’m just this girl on TV or whatever. I’m not proud of that. I think it’s funny, but I wouldn’t do it now. I’d just be like, ‘Okay, you’re a loser.’ Then I would leave.”

ON HER GLAMOROUS WEDDING: “I wanted to be like, ‘Oh, let’s totally have a rock ’n’ roll, goth wedding.’ But at the same time I was like, ‘I’ve been dreaming about my wedding day since I was a little girl. I have to wear the white dress.’ I wanted to be a princess, okay? People thought I would have done, like, some black wedding dress, and yeah, I would have. But at the same time I was thinking about our pictures, and I wanted—like, that’s why I have this ring—I wanted to be in style. It’s a classic. I didn’t want to be, like, 20 years later, ‘Oh, why did I wear my hair like that? It’s not cool now.’”

ON WHAT PEOPLE THINK OF HER: “I have a strong personality. And when someone has a strong personality, you either like it or you don’t. I’m a certain:style. And that’s okay with me.”

ON CO-WRITING KELLY CLARKSON’S HIT POP SONG “BREAKAWAY,” WHICH SHE REFUSES TO SING HERSELF: “I wrote ‘Breakaway’ when I was 15 or 16, and I didn’t like it. It kind of reminded me of a church song. But after my first record, someone said, ‘Kelly Clarkson wants to sing that song.’ I was like, ‘Okay.’ She has a beautiful voice and she’s a nice girl. She did a really good job with it.”

ON CHILDHOOD ROLE MODELS: “My mom made me go to a Britney Spears concert when I was young. And I was like, ‘No, I don’t want to!’ She was like, ‘You’re going to be a performer, you need to see other people!”

ON LIFE IN THE SPOTLIGHT: “Part of me is tough, like I’m really opinionated, outspoken, a bit of a tomboy—but I’m also a young lady, very girly, and I can be really quiet. It’s weird, because I’m famous, so every time I do something, people talk about it. But I don’t care. I’m going to live my life. I’m still me, I’m still a young chick who just wants to have a lot of fun.”

ON WINNING A RADIO CONTEST AT AGE 14 AND GETTING TO SING WITH SHANIA TWAIN: “They were like, ‘Submit a tape of you singing a Shania Twain song. I won and later sang onstage with her. It was at the Corel Centre in Ottawa. It’s, like, this massive venue, an arena, and then LIKE, THREE YEARS LATER I GET A RECORD DEAL AND I’M SINGING THERE, SOLD OUT! It was crazy, because I remember walking onstage and being like, ‘Holy f***, I want this so bad.’ Just seeing all those people. And now every time I do my tour there, I’m so grateful.”

    Oh dear God. Notice how she doesnt “fight” anymore and she has matured, but she makes it a point to talk about a fight she got in, where she was the tough bitch? PLEEEEEASE. She thinks it makes her look kewl. It makes her look dumb and full of shit. If she had really matured and didnt think it was right, she wouldnt have even brought it up. Poser retard.

    avril lavigne is the coolest person ever. the only thing (no offence avril) is i don’t like how girly she is acting no. i mean first she has awsome style- black and stuff- now all of a sudden she has to have pink. i mean come on avril, you looked better with your other clothes and hair. i dress like you used to. but anyway, your awsome you inspire me no matter what other bitches say or do. oh, by the way i think you should get in more fights, i cant stand people fuckin’ messing with me. ide be llike ‘what the hells wrong with you’ and punch the out. ok this is kind of long so ByE!!!

  • Heather Jones

    yea susan i agree with u all the way ur kinda funny lol but yea avril is awsome

  • blabla

    i think that avril is a good role model now
    she might cuss a lot
    and may hve made a few mistakes in the past
    but that doesnt mean that she a bad person and a role model
    she never did drugs
    if i were u
    i would forget about the rumors
    stop worrying about proof
    and just believe her
    u rock avril
