PALM DESERT, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Avril Lavigne today said she hopes to reach millions of teens and young women with an important message about acne, summed up as: “Be Proactiv.”

Avril was out shopping with Jamie in LA yesterday, and thanks Avrilsmusic we have some pictures

Hi everyone!

I just wanted to check in and share a bit of what's going on with me right now. I am so excited! I feel very lucky to be a part of Tim Burton's new film Alice In Wonderland.

It all started off with me designing an Abbey Dawn/Alice In Wonderland collaboration for my fashion line at Kohls. I was working at the Disney offices going though graphic images from the movie for my designs and getting up to speed on the movie project. I was really inspired and excited about the film at that moment, so I asked Disney if they would like me to write the theme song for the film. They went back to Tim and he said yeah give it a go.

I was so excited when I got the news! I sat down on my piano immediately and wrote the song. I wanted to come up with something a little on the moodier side to fit his film. I think the piano adds a cool dramatic element to the song.

I met with Tim Burton and he played me some clips from his film. I finished the song and he really liked it and said he wanted to put it in the film as the first end credit song. OMG soooo cool! Hehe. Disney also wanted to use it as there marketing song around the film and so I shot a music video. So fun!!!!!

Working on this project was such a treat! It was such a great experience and Tim Burton was an absolute pleasure. He is very smart. I am so grateful for this opportunity...and can't wait to see the whole film!!!!

If you've been looking around online, you would see that unfortunately, all is not positive when talking about "Alice". This article, published by About.com, is a really refreshing take on the song.

Avril Lavigne - "Alice"
About.com rating: 4 stars

The Bottom Line
Reportedly, Avril Lavigne told Disney executives she could write a song for their upcoming new film version of Alice in Wonderland, they agreed, and it came together very quickly. There is a raw immediacy to the sound which grabs listeners instantly. It's hard to know if it will be a major pop hit, but the song does provide a suitably dramatic to publicity for the upcoming film. ...


Avril was shooting the "Alice" video again yesterday, and the paparazzi got quite the cool shots. Avril running through the forest, her brother Matt picking something out of her hair, and running into a flock of Canadian Geese! You can also see her new "Abbey Dawn" tattoo pretty clear. Thanks Avrilsmusic!


BTW, the news system might go down from time to time today, because of the increase in visitors to the site - check back later if it does.

The name has officially been changed just to "Alice", and it's very dark sounding, different from anything we've heard from Avril. Let me know what you think! Lyrics are in the Other section. Listen to the HQ song below!

She premiered it on Ryan Seacrest's show this morning (with a really great interview that you can listen to the here).

[edit] I heard it on my local radio station! AHH!

Here is the single cover!

AvrilLavigne.com has added lots of new "Alice" goodies:

GORGEOUS pictures from the photo shoot on set!

One thing I don't get, why are people so negative towards Avril? Look around the blogs and on the net, and 90% of the comments are all negative toward her. Is it because she said 'no' to the pastor with 3 kids because being a pop star will take you away from your home? Because of that she's a 'bitch' and 'hurtful' person? Give me a break. Sure AI is all about being able to sing, but it's also about handling the stardom. She gave the guy props for a good voice and you can tell it killed her to say 'no'. Call me biased because this site is all about Avril, but it ticks me off when people are so quick to judge her. Just my opinion, can't wait to hear yours!


Here's a video of Avril and Tyson Ritter performing his song "Move Along" in Vegas from January 17. You can see her on the left side talking and laughing and at 4:00 she comes to the mic. Awesome to hear her singing again! Oh, and ignore his horrible drunken potty mouth


Reminder: Tonight is Avrils episode of American Idol. For those who can't watch, it will be posted here tomorrow.

Meanwhile, here is an interview Avril did this morning with Ryan Seacrest. She talked about American Idol, "Alice", Deryck, and the new album. She was in the car on the way to the video shoot (?!) and the song comes out January 31! That's 5 days!!! "Alice" is not the first single; that will be out in April, with the album in June (the album cover photo shoot has also been shot!)

[edit] Avril was great on American Idol! She seemed to bond well with Simon! Pictures and video to come soon


Avril has allegedly gotten a new tattoo in Vegas last week, the words "Abbey Dawn" on her left bicep. No pictures yet, but I am extremely interested to see what this looks like! Hopefully it's small.

Just a reminder, Avril's appearance on American Idol will be on Tuesday, January 26th. Originally it was supposed to be the 27th, but one day earlier is even better!


Myspace Music is releasing songs from the "Almost Alice" soundtrack everyday, with Avril's "Alice (Underground)" coming out on February 4! And the countdown begins...

Which Music Video?
Which Song?

[is avril still making AD pajamas? because I couldent find them anywhere in my Kohls store.]
No, actually there aren't any more pajamas. Apparently it's because they didn't sell well.

[Hey Melissa! Maybe Avril will make a  promo tour with Evan in spring/summer. Do you plan a new fanproject similar to the last one we had with the slipperse and the scarpbook?]
Absolutely, but I need to think of something else other than the slippers!

[I was watching an interview and there was rumour that Av didnt write all the songs on Let Go, and it was really someone else. Did she write them all?]
She co-wrote all of the songs on the album, and her other albums as well. She's a really talented songwriter

[Do you think Avril uses any products for acne? If so, what kind do you think?]
Well, I guess right now we need to assume she uses/has used Proactiv, being the spokeswoman and all, but who knows.

[do you have any avril related tatoos?]
No tattoos at all, but if I would get something Avril related, it would be the Let Go star.


Thanks to the wonderful, wonderful Zach, we have the first look at the Proactiv commercial! The quality and sound aren't the greatest, but she looks soooo pretty and sophisticated. I'm also glad to see that it's a full 2 minute commercial. It's a little cheesy, but how can an acne commercial not be, right? Let me know what you think!
