Come back, Sk8er Girl, we miss your complications

You know you're in trouble when Avril Lavigne starts sharing song titles with R.E.M. and Pink Floyd. Yet if "Everybody Hurts" and "Wish You Were Here" find the former brat-punk princess in dreary woe-is-me mode (inspired, one presumes, by her recent divorce from Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley), Goodbye Lullaby isn't entirely free of the singer's shallow-end sass: On the Max Martin–produced "What the Hell," she tries to shake the breakup blues over an organ-driven robo-garage groove. "I'd rather rage than sit around and wait all day," Lavigne proclaims, and she's not the only one.
Avril Still Bitter About 'Goodbye Lullaby' Being Put On Hold By Record Label

Avril Lavigne Snubbed Label Bosses' Push For 'Urban' Sound
'Avril Lavigne,' Music Interview, Neil Wilkes, Editor, Digital Spy, 2.22.11 -- A familiar wailing on a certain Loud album track last autumn got us to thinking, 'What the hell has happened to Avril Lavigne?' Four years on from The Best Damn Thing, the pop-punk princess is back with a new, years-in-the-making record. And here's the kicker: it's mellow. What's with the new direction? Has she packed up the skateboard for good? We hooked up with Av-Lav to find out more.
How did you enjoy the Brits last week?
"It was cool. It's a very exciting awards show. Because there were so many fans there, it felt like a concert. So many award shows can be boring and serious, but this one was fun."
Who did you hang out with?
"I kinda just went, did my part and then left. No partying! No nothing for me!"
You're coming back with a new album after four years. Have you been nervous?
"Everyone's been asking that, but no. I think I'm more relaxed than anything because I've made a record I'm really proud of. I'm really excited and super mellow."
Is the debut single indicative of the general sound of the album?
"It's so different. There are only one or two songs like that on the record. 'What The Hell' is very much like my older stuff - pop-rock with a light subject. The rest of my record is stripped down, raw, deeper, more emotional - kind of more acoustic but not quite. It's got a lot of loops, pianos and acoustic guitar, so a very different vibe."
What was the thinking of having 'What The Hell' as the trailer single, then?
"It was chosen because it has a familiar sound. The record company wanted something like that - something more radio-friendly. It's kind of like my old stuff and it'll help bridge into the new stuff."
Are you happy with how it's performed on the charts?
"I think it's doing alright, especially because I don't think it's the best song on the album. It's doing alright, yeah."
What's the significance of Goodbye Lullaby as an album title?
"It represents the record and me growing, moving forward, opening a new chapter in life and closing the door on another."
You co-wrote every song on the album. How important was that to you?
"I wrote half of the record by myself, without a co-writer, and then I co-wrote the rest. I've always been involved in the songwriting process. I wrote one of the songs on the album ('Darlin'') when I was 15, and I've finally recorded it now, which means a lot to me. I produced some of the songs too, which makes the project even closer to me."
How did you find producing?
"It was cool because I didn't think I could ever do that. I learned a lot through Deryck (Whibley) and my friend Evan (Taubenfeld). The two tracks I did, 'Goodbye' and 'For Real', are really simple rock tracks, so it wasn't anything crazy. Sometimes less is more too."
I read an interview in which you mentioned that the record has been sitting on the shelf for a year. Why's there been a delay in releasing it?
"Because my record company were being a typical record company and trying to give me their version of how it should be - trying to get me to go in a different direction. I had to fight with them over and over. I was like, 'No, this is a really special record to me and this is what I'm doing'."
By different direction, do you mean back to the more classic Avril sound?
"Radio's very rhythmic and urban and dance today. I think they wanted me to do something more like that, but that's not what my vision was for this album. I was signed by L.A. Reid on Arista Records when I was 16. He understood me and believed in me. Arista folded and I got put on RCA or whatever, then there were new people there, and every six months it changes and more new people come in. It's funny when someone new comes in and they've got an opinion too."
Have you decided on a second single yet?
"I'm really hoping it's going to be 'Push'."
Rihanna sampled one of your songs on 'Cheers (Drink To That)' from her Loud album. What did you make of that?
"I really like it. My friends downloaded it and played it for me. I like my song 'I'm With You', so I'm just happy that she did that. She's really talented and has a great career."
Some of your classic songs like 'Sk8er Boi' are now nearly nine years old. Has your approach to performing them changed now you're older?
"No. When people come to a concert, they wanna hear the hits, the big radio songs, and they wanna hear them how they're used to hearing them. I like playing them how they were recorded."
Goodbye Lullaby is out March 7.

Avril Lavigne Talks Goodbye Lullaby, Abbey Dawn, Fragrances and More
Amy Sciarretto, Artist Direct, 2.14.11 -- Avril Lavigne is a modern Renaissance woman. Despite her sassy songs, her girlish attitude and youthful energy, Lavigne isn't a girl anymore. She's an exemplary woman, an entrepreneur, an artist that has shifted more than 30 million copies of her albums in her career so far and a lady with a lot on her plate. Her fourth album, Goodbye Lullaby, is set for release on March 8th via RCA and the singer/songwriter/fashion designer/perfumer admits it's a "bittersweet" set of songs.
Goodbye Lullaby could be Lavigne's best, most personal album to date, thanks to the way she lays her cards on the table, unafraid to let her fans have a look-see over her well-clothed shoulder. Goodbye Lullaby is raw and personal in ways that other pop stars, whose names have been omitted to protect the not-so-innocent, can only dream about. Lavigne draws you in with her gutsy, Alanis Morissette and Joni Mitchell-inspired vocal delivery and she holds you there, captive, with her polished hooks and unforgettable melodies.
Lavigne has also expanded her empire, with her Abbey Dawn clothing line, formerly sold only at Kohl's, upgraded from a junior's line to something a bit more grown up and universally wearable. She has issued two fragrances to date, with a third on the way. Clearly, Avril, who has the best hair this side of Jennifer Aniston, is a busy gal, but she found time to chat with ARTISTdirect . com News Editor and makeup maven Amy Sciarretto and discussed her Lullaby and following her nose, literally, figuratively and fragrancefully!
You are immersed in music, fashion and perfumes. Does the creative process for each project meld into the others? Do they all relate in some way for you?
They all 100 percent tie into my music, which is why I am here. Abbey Dawn, my fashion line, ties into my music, since I am designing for me, creating what I want to wear at photo shoots, onstage, at video shoots, on red carpets or offstage. I am a chick, so I love clothes [laughs]. I get to design and make a cool line that I love and be creative there. It is nice to be able to do something outside of music. I just launched AbbeyDawn . com.
You've upgraded the line, it seems.
I made a huge change to my tees. It's not a tween or juniors anymore. It's more for girls and women now. It's better quality and will have a higher price point. I have a whole new team, from people I work with to the manufacturer. I started over and I am excited, since now it's international. I hurried to get it online, so it's out and I will be taking it into stores soon. It's revamped. It's going to include heels, like rock 'n' roll heels, flats, purses and other good stuff. I am so excited that I tattooed the name on my forearm. I love it so much. I went to Japan last week and got great ideas from all the Tokyo fashion.
They are always six months ahead of us when it comes to fashion trends, aren't they?
It is so dope. I love the jeans with rips and bold rock 'n' roll pieces and they have that there. You can find extraordinary rock pieces there when you can't find anything here. Everything is plain. So I get to make what I want to wear.
How are your fragrances a reflection of you?
'Black Star' is the first one and 'Forbidden Rose' is the second one. It's funny to talk about it, since each has a message and tagline; that is how we create them. Black Star, since I love pink and black and stars and studs…the bottle is a star with a studded ring and the tagline is 'Be Your Own Star' and the message is reach for stars, go for your dreams and believe in yourself. I wrote a piece of music for the commercial and that is the intro to my album. 'Forbidden Rose' has a message to dare to discover and be rebellious.
How much are you involved in the development of the scent? Are you sniffing vials that come over from the chemistry lab?
Believe it or not, it takes two years to create a scent. How it smells? That is the last thing that goes into it [laughs]. I spent a lot of time going over boxes, colors, fonts, messages, the story, consumer testing, etc.
Does that feeling of creating a scent match that of creating an album?
Outside of music, oh my god, I get so excited and then I have ideas when I get the product. When I see people wearing it or smell it on my mom and sister or friends, it's so cool.
'Black Star' opens the album and is like a pretty, lullaby. It has a fairytale, haunting emotion behind it and sort of sets you up for what comes next.
Yes! That is the intro. The last song is 'Goodbye,' and it has the same lullaby feel.
Then there is 'What the Hell,' which is sassy Avril. What got you into those headspaces for the mood of the album, especially since you just went through a public break up?
Well, 'What the Hell' is more pop rock and a lot of my sassy, like you said, style. It's lighter and fun and the rest of the album is more raw and vulnerable and it's deeper and stripped down. My vision, production wise, for this album, was that. I wanted acoustic guitars and for it to be stripped down with pianos. I wanted to go there more. All my records are pop rock and upbeat, and I was ready to do something a little different. As far as lyrics and the subject matter, it is a bittersweet. I didn't know what I was going to write; I just knew what I wanted the production to sound like and what I wanted the style to be. Then, the lyrics just come and it was bittersweet lyrically.
Do you think people see you beyond that whole 'Sk8er Boi' persona? Have you moved past that? Do you think you empower girls still?
It's been really nice and rewarding, over the years. I have had fan meet and greets and signings, and when I have fans come up to me, they've written me letters and have told me that my music has touched them or helped them, and then they get into specific details and hard situations, and say that my songs help them. When I hear that, I feel really happy that I could have an effect on someone. I hope this album inspires people and gives them strength.
Thanks to Bandaids.
OMG Av Covers Tik Tok!
- Published on 02.11.2011, 04:20 by thewaymouth, 2 replies
On Tuesday, Avril performed Ke$ha's 'Tik Tok' before a live audience for 'Taratata,' the French TV show. It will air on March 8, the release date of Avril's new album, 'Goodbye Lullaby.'
This from fanavril (of Avril-Source) who was in the audience [the full story, 'OMG TARATATA was amazing!! MUST READ,' can be read @ avrilbandaids . com/forums/avril-underground/1104996-omg-taratata-amazing-must-read.html]...
After [an acoustic] WTH, the host said she would sing another song, a cover by Kesha. No time to wait or anything she began to sing with the band. At the beginning I didn't recognize the song but after the first lyrics it was very clear. Let me tell you that she didn't move or anything during WTH or TIK TOK. It was just a calm and relax moment with her and her musicians. TIK TOK was great, really.
My response to thread at Bandaids (which I have since sent to Ke$ha at Twitter)...
OMG Tik Tok!
Loves the hell out of it. The song and record of the year, off the album of the year, by the artist of the year... But no! The backstabbing Grammys instead shutout Ke$ha altogether. But not Avril. The same freaking week of the weak awards show, Av rocks 'Tik Tok.' She knows what it's like to be snubbed by the Grammys. Though unlike Ke$ha, at least Av's had nominations, but always a bridesmaid, never a winner. Unlike the damn Grammys, Avril knows quality, she knows poetry, she knows pop, she knows how to have fun, so she pays freaking tribute. She is not jealous of this upstart punkette.
She knows what time it is! 0:00 and no, the party don't stop, don't start, till I walk in!
You go, Av!

Lavigne dismisses chart criticism
By WENN . COM, February 9, 2011 -- Singer Avril Lavigne has dismissed gossip she's upset about the performance of her comeback track What the Hell, insisting she's "happy" with the song's sales.
The star is preparing to release Goodbye Lullaby, her much-awaited follow-up to 2007 album The Best Damn Thing, following a string of delays.
The first single from the record hit shelves last month and has so far peaked at number 13 on the U.S. chart and 29 in Britain, prompting reports Lavigne is unhappy with its performance.
But the singer insists she's pleased with the chart positions after so long out of the spotlight.
She tells Vanity Fair, "It's been a few years. I'm excited to see that What The Hell is doing good so far on iTunes and with the fans.
"The response has been really great, so I'm happy."
