It’s every artist’s dream: to get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame! Avril appeared, wearing the same hoodie she did when she first visited as a young 16 year old, to accept the amazing honor!
“Today, I love making music more than ever. I feel so inspired. And I hope that the next 16-year-old from their small town who comes to Hollywood one day, full of hopes and dreams, sees this star and thinks to themself, ‘Oh my god, my name could be there one day, too.’ Because it can,” she said during her speech according to Variety. “What an amazing 20 years, and I can’t wait for the next 20, bitches! Let’s go!”
Available now on Killstar.com, Avril has designed a line of “edgy” and “cool”. It’s a rock lover’s dream as it includes everything from barbed chokers to skeleton-print dresses. The drop also offers lingerie, handbags and accessories.

Avril has released an acoustic version of “Love Sux” and a cover of Adele’s “Hello”. Her voice is hauntingly beautiful – chills!!!! Listen to both tracks only on Spotify.
“I love Adele’s song ‘Hello’ and have been dying to do a cover of it,” Lavigne said in a statement. “The ‘Spotify Singles’ sessions were a fun opportunity to finally do this cover as well as reimagine my own song ‘Love Sux’ as an acoustic version.”
June 4 marks 20 years since the release of Avril’s debut album, “Let Go”. A 2LP vinyl release will come out in early 2023, but the digital version is out now! The re-release includes all 13 original songs, plus 6 additional tracks including “I Don’t Give”, “Get Over It”, “Why”, “Falling Down”, “Make Up” (never officially released) and a new recording of “Breakaway”. The vocals remain largely unchanged but John Feldman has rearranged some songs to be more guitar driven.
I’m loving this version of Breakaway, with Avril’s 2022 vocals and who knew that “Why” was never just the acoustic version we got? “Make Up”, on the other hand was always my least favorite from those leaks 10+ years ago… why didn’t they release the title track “Let Go”?
When she was only 17, the Canadian singer’s debut album wowed the world. Now, as Let Go hits its 20th anniversary, its pop-punk anthems are finding new life thanks to TikTok

For a generation of girls who spent years exclusively wearing butterfly clips, bright blue eyeshadow and pale pink everything, the release of the “pop-punk princess” Avril Lavigne’s debut album, Let Go, on 4 June 2002 was not merely a new sound, it was enlightenment.
In an era when bubblegum pop and “sexy baby” personas reigned, the 17-year-old Lavigne emerged as its antithesis. Rarely seen without a baggy pair of jeans, heavy kohl eyeliner and a loose tie round her neck, she co-wrote her own songs, with lyrics about skateboarding and getting fired from a chicken shop. Her first two singles, Complicated and Sk8er Boi, both spent half of the year on the Billboard Hot 100 and Let Go remains one of the 20 bestselling albums of the 21st century.
I want to give a massive thank you to everyone who participated in the Avril-L.org “Bite Me Tour” Fan Project! I was lucky enough to present Avril with the fanbook after the Winnipeg show on May 17. She was so enthusiastic with looking through the pages and said that she keeps all fan gifts at her home. Avril, I hope you enjoy this small insight into what your fans mean to you <3. To see pictures of the completed fanbook, go here.
If you have a chance to attend a live Avril concert over this next year, you MUST take advantage: her stage show itself is visually the best one ever, the band sounds amazing and Avril exudes confidence and energy like never before.
Rock on Avril, here’s to 20 more years!!
