Avril Lavigne's Lifelong Obsession: Cooking

Move over Wolfgang Puck. The next celebrity chef may come in the form of a brash, pop punker.

"I've always been obsessed with cooking," Avril Lavgine told PEOPLE Saturday in Las Vegas. "I can make anything."

Lavigne even asked for cooking tools for her recent 26th birthday, which she celebrated over the weekend at MGM Grand's Wet Republic.

"I got some spatulas with skulls on them and some fun stuff for my kitchen," she said of her birthday gifts.

"I swear to God, my family asked me what I wanted and I said I wanted a serving bowl and all these things for my kitchen. I asked for a stone plate to put in my oven to cook and crazy stuff like that."

The "Girlfriend" singer is known to show off her skills at dinner parties, she said, adding that Yorkshire pudding is her "specialty".

"I make really good bruschetta, too," the chef-in-training adds.


Avril had her birthday party in Las Vegas yesterday. Looks like a great time with a yummy cake! No sign of Brody (in the pictures) and she didn't look very dressed up, but it looked like a lot of fun! Thanks Avrilsmusic.


Remember when I posted a few weeks back that Avril had reportedly written a song called "Cheers" for Rihanna's upcoming album, Loud? Well it turns out that the song just samples Avril's "I'm With You", which is why she is given a writing credit for the song. Thanks to reader vampvamp for pointing it out!

"Cheers" - The song samples Avril Lavigne’s “I’m With You” and is so unbelievably catchy! Avril’s “yeahh, yeahh, yeahhh, yeahhh” are prevalent throughout. This song will be so huge in clubs, bars, and everywhere that serves alcohol. Everybody will be raising a glass! Sample lyrics: “Turn it around with a dollar round, there’s a party at the bar everybody put your glasses up… Cheers to the freakin weekend, I drink to that. Everybody put your glasses up. Don’t let the bastards get you down… Drinks on my mind and my mind on my money.”


If you are going to be in the Las Vegas area this Saturday, October 2, you will be ECSTATIC to learn that Avril will be celebrating her 26th birthday at Wet Republic at the MGM Grand! Tickets are available here in advance for $40. If you get to go, tell her we say HI!


Like I previously posted, Avril is on the first ever cover of Disney's D-You Italian magazine. They posted a quick video of Avril during their photo shoot and in the studio!



Today is Miss Avril Lavigne's 26th birthday! On behalf of all of the visitors of, we wish you a VERY happy birthday. Celebrate hard!!!

Send Avril your birthday wishes @AvrilLavigne, and make sure you tell her how much we love her here at


Avril is going to be featured in the upcoming issue of D-You Magazine, out next week. Her hair does look a little darker! Can't wait to read the interview.


Here is a picture of a slightly looking bored BRUNETTE Avril at the Clinton Global Initiative in New York earlier today. Now let's not get too excited over the seemingly brunette hair, because it could just be the light, but how cool would it be to see her back to her original color? I hope so!


According to Avril's Twitter, she is currently in New York attending the first session of the Clinton Global Initiative's 2010 Annual Meeting! Bill Clinton founded the CGI to bring together corporate and charitable partners, non-governmental organizations, and world leaders to deal with the problems of global poverty, the environment, health care, and education. You can find out more about it here.

Really excited to be at the opening session of Bill Clintons #cgi2010

Super cool to be here in NYC learning about the worlds biggest problems and hearing to people like Bill Clinton and Melinda Gates speak


Recently, an alternate video for Avril's "Nobody's Home" was released. This version has some new scenes, as well as different effects with the performance with the orchestra. I really like it, but still prefer the original. What do you think? Download here.


Avril has officially launched her Avril Lavigne foundation. Check out the website for some exclusive videos and information about this amazing cause!

The Avril Lavigne Foundation

Hi Everyone!

I am so excited to finally be able to share with you something I have been working on for the past six months: The Avril Lavigne Foundation! Giving back has always been important to me and I’ve been so lucky to support a lot of wonderful charities over the years. By creating The Avril Lavigne Foundation I can really focus on the issues I care most about in a meaningful way. I’ve met so many incredible people over the years and I have been particularly inspired by the young people I’ve met who are facing life-threatening illnesses or who have a permanent disability. I’m always amazed at how people facing challenging circumstances work so hard to not be defined by those circumstances. They still have big dreams and like all of us work really hard to pursue those dreams. Seeing people overcome difficult circumstances really inspired me to focus the work of The Avril Lavigne Foundation on supporting children and youth living with disabilities and serious illnesses. We are just getting started but have a lot of big plans for the near future, and I hope we will inspire you to support our work.
