Early years

Her father named her Avril after the month "April" in French.[16] She has an older brother, Matthew, and a younger sister, Michelle.[17] Lavigne’s mother was the first to spot young Lavigne’s talent. At the age of two, Lavigne began singing church songs along with her mother. The family moved to Napanee, Ontario, when Lavigne was five years old. In 1998, Lavigne won a competition to sing with fellow Canadian singer Shania Twain on her first major concert tour. She appeared alongside Twain at her concert in Ottawa, appearing on stage to sing "What Made You Say That". She was discovered by her first professional manager, Cliff Fabri, while singing country covers at a Chapters bookstore in Kingston, Ontario.[16] During a performance with the Lennox Community Theatre, Lavigne was spotted by local folk singer Steve Medd, who invited her to contribute vocals on his song, "Touch the Sky", for his 1999 album, Quinte Spirit. She also sang on "Temple of Life" and "Two Rivers" for his follow up 2000 album, My Window to You.[16]

Lavigne at a concert in Beijing, 2008 Lavigne’s third album, The Best Damn Thing, was released on April 17, 2007. Lavigne went into a small tour to promote The Best Damn Thing. The album’s lead single, "Girlfriend", topped the Billboard Hot 100, the week The Best Damn Thing debuted at number one on the Billboard 200. "Girlfriend" is Lavigne’s first single to have reached number one in the United States.[40] The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry ranked "Girlfriend" as 2007’s mostdownloaded track, selling 7.3 million copies in eight different languages.[b][11] In December 2007, Lavigne, with annual earnings of $12 million, was ranked number eight in the Forbes "Top 20 Earners Under 25".[41] In March 2008, Lavigne undertook a world tour named The Best Damn Tour 2008 to support the album. In mid August 2008, Malaysia’s Islamic opposition party, the Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party, attempted to ban Lavigne’s show in Kuala Lumpur, judging her stage moves "too sexy". Her concert slated August 29 was deemed promoting wrong values ahead of Malaysia’s independence day on August 31.[42] On August 21, 2008, MTV

The Best Damn Thing (2006–2008)
Lavigne represented Canada at the closing ceremony of the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy, performing her song "Who Knows" during the eight minutes of the Vancouver 2010 portion.[36] While Lavigne was in the studio in 2006 for her third studio album, Fox Entertainment Group approached her to write a song for the soundtrack to the 2006 fantasy-adventure film Eragon. She wrote and recorded two "ballad-type" songs, one of which "Keep Holding On" ended up being used for the film. Lavigne admitted that writing the song was challenging, making sure it flows along with the film. She, however, noted that "Keep Holding On" was not indicative of what the next album would be.[37] The song, which later appeared on the album, debuted on radio on November 20, 2006, and later released for digital download on November 28.[38][39]

Lavigne recorded a cover of the John Lennon song "Imagine" as her contribution to the compilation album Instant Karma: The Amnesty International Campaign to Save Darfur.

Personal life

She said also she prefers not to eat meat, but will not say she’s a vegetarian "in case anyone caught her eating meat".[57] Lavigne has a star tattooed on the inside of her left wrist that matches the style of the one used for her first album artwork. It was created at the same time as friend and musical associate Ben Moody’s identical tattoo.[58] In late 2004, she had a small pink heartshaped tattoo featuring the letter ’D’ applied to her right wrist, which represents her now husband Deryck Whibley,[59] a fellow Canadian singer who is the lead singer/guitarist of punk band Sum 41. They began dating in February 2004 and on June 27, 2005, Lavigne and Whibley became engaged.[60] Whibley proposed to Lavigne by surprising her with a trip to Venice, a gondola ride, and then a romantic picnic.[60]

Marilyn Manson, System of a Down and Blink-182, and loves especially the track I Miss You. Asked what she would put on a mix tape to a boy she liked, she answered: "Iris, by Goo Goo Dolls. I’d put a few Coldplay and Oasis songs. Radiohead - The Bends is one of my favorite albums".[64]

Avril Lavigne
co-songwriter Lukasz Gottwald, Almo Music, and RCA Records, claiming that "Girlfriend" contains lyrics plagiarized from their song "I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend", originally performed by The Rubinoos and released by Beserkley Records in 1978.[70][71] In January 2008, following a confidential settlement, Dunbar and Gangwer said in a statement that they "are satisfied that any similarities between the two songs resulted from Avril and Luke’s use of certain common and widely used lyrics". They completely exonerated Lavigne and Luke "from any wrongdoing of any kind in connection with the claims made by us in our lawsuit".[72] In June 2007, Canadian singer-songwriter Chantal Kreviazuk, with whom Lavigne cowrote the majority of her second album, Under My Skin, spoke to Performing Songwriter magazine about Lavigne’s songwriting ability and ethics. Kreviazuk claimed that the song "Contagious", which appears on The Best Damn Thing, was based on a track she had sent to Lavigne in 2005.[73][74] On July 6, 2007, Lavigne denied both accusations in an open letter on her website, admitting that she had "never heard the [Rubinoos] song in [her] life" and also threatening legal action against Kreviazuk for her allegations, which she considers "damaging" to her reputation and a "clear defamation" of her character.[74][75] On July 10, Kreviazuk made a full public apology and retracted the statements made in the aforementioned interview, admitting she had not heard the song in question before making the comments, but rather made the accusation after noticing a song of the same name on the track listing.[76] She said that Lavigne "is an accomplished songwriter and it has been my privilege to work with her".[74] Kreviazuk and Lavigne share the same manager under Nettwerk Management.[77]

Musical style and public image
In Lavigne’s official MySpace page, she affirms that her music genre includes pop, rock, and the sub-genre punk rock.[65] According to Allmusic, her styles encompass adult alternative, pop rock, pop punk, postgrunge and teen pop.[66] According to Rockdetector she is alternative rock, pop punk, pop rock, post-grunge, punk and teen pop.[67][68] Lavigne had been featured in a comic series Avril Lavigne’s Make 5 Wishes. She stars as herself, a pop star who is idolized by the protagonist of the story.[69]
