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 *****? PLEEEEEASE. She thinks it makes her look kewl. It makes her look dumb and full of ****. If she had really matured and didnt think it was right, she wouldnt have even brought it up. Poser ******.
