Avril Lavigne Biography
Review The Artist (163)
Avril Ramona Lavigne (pronounced /ˈævrɨl ləˈviːn/; born 27 September 1984) is a Canadian singer-songwriter, fashion designer, actress, and philanthropist. She was born in Belleville, Ontario, but spent the majority of her youth in the small town of Napanee. By the age of 15, she had appeared on stage with Shania Twain; by 16, she had signed a two-album recording contract with Arista (now RCA Records) worth more than $2 million. When she was 17 years old, Lavigne broke onto the music scene with her debut album, Let Go, released in 2002.
Let Go made Lavigne the youngest female soloist to reach #1 in the UK, and the album was certified four-times platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America. By 2009, over 16 million copies had been sold worldwide. Her breakthrough single, "Complicated", peaked at #1 in many countries around the world, as did the album Let Go. Her second album, Under My Skin, was released in 2004 and was her first album to peak at #1 on the U.S. Billboard 200, eventually selling more than 10 million copies worldwide. The Best Damn Thing, Lavigne’s third album, was released in 2007, becoming her third #1 album in the UK Albums Chart and featuring her first U.S. Billboard Hot 100 #1 single, "Girlfriend". Lavigne has scored a total of five #1 singles worldwide, including "Complicated", "Sk8er Boi", "I'm With You", "My Happy Ending" and "Girlfriend". With more than 30 million copies of her albums sold worldwide, Lavigne is currently one of the top-selling artists releasing albums in the U.S., with over 10.25 million copies certified by the RIAA. Her fourth studio album, Goodbye Lullaby, will be released in March 2011.
Lavigne branched out from recording music, pursuing careers in feature film acting and designing clothes and perfumes. She voiced a character in the animated film, Over the Hedge, in 2006. That same year, she made her on-screen feature film debut in Fast Food Nation. In 2008, Lavigne introduced her clothing line, Abbey Dawn, and in 2009, she released her first perfume, Black Star, which was followed by her second perfume, Forbidden Rose, in 2010. In July 2006, Lavigne married her boyfriend of two years, Deryck Whibley, lead singer and guitarist for Sum 41. The marriage lasted a little over three years, and in October 2009, Lavigne filed for divorce. Whibley and Lavigne continued to work together, with Whibley producing her upcoming fourth album, as well as Lavigne's single, "Alice", written for Tim Burton's film Alice in Wonderland.

Avril Rocks | Reviewer: Erin Cummins | 1/6/14
to the anonymous person who said that Avril Lavigne is untalented and obnoxious, you don't know jackshit. so fuck off and go listen to some other artist. Avril is a different kind of artist, she don't use auto-tune, i listen to her music and there's no sign of it. secondly she is not ugly, i would die to have a nice body like hers. thirdly she doesn't suck and she can so play an instrument and cover songs originally by other artists and can so rock it. And because you are anonymous, you haven't got the guts to show your name on the review. i for one think that is straight up NOT BRADAZ and to spite you, i will put up both middle fingers to you for your completely irrelevant opinion because you suck and i hope you rot in Hell

Avril fans R really spechal | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/1/13
Where do I begin? Avril is a talentless,loud mouthed,obnoxious.Her personality is really over the top.She copies and plagiarizes.In concert she has sang other songs by artists like System of a Down and Coldplay and totally didn't rock it!! lol.She writes juvenile songs can barely play an instrument and totally sucks even at posing.Whats in that empty head besides a limited vocabulary and obscenities? Avril "it's all about me" Lavigne is the shame of Canada.Avril's videos full of endorsement deals.She is a mean little bitch and her fans are deluded.Here's to never growing up says it all.She panders to kiddies.I could go on forever but what would the point be? She sucks and looks ugly to me with that whiny auto tuned voice and snotty air head thoughts.Heres to you Avril,I give you both my middle fingers your heinass dumbass!!

I don't think she's a poser. You can never blame a person who dresses what she wants and judge her from that. I think that's total asshole! You haters have nothing to do with Avril, you better fuck off and die. You know what? there're no cure in an illness called INSECURITY, and insecurity does reign in an empty brain and an ugly heart! Now, who the fuck says she doesn't really rock, idiot? Go to youtube and search Avril Lavigne - Unwanted Live in Budokan, and you will see that you're not only a moron and die with insecurity for she really does ROCK!

avril ramona lavigne ROCKS!!! | Reviewer: jaisy | 6/19/12
upon reading Avril's biography,i can therefore conclude that what makes her famous is not only the way she "rocks" her singing but also the way she write her songs by experience that everybody who listen to her music can relate it to their own...avril really rocks everybody down to earth!!! truly a CERTIFIED pop-punk princess!
