Ever the chameleon, Avril was decked out in the punk style that made her famous as she left a London club this week. She's got reason for celebration, too as Girlfriend, the first single off her upcoming album The Best Damn Thing is already in the top 10 of Billboard's Hot 100. Lately though, it feels like we've seen more glam Avril than punk Avril, especially at her extremely white wedding last year. In April's Jane she talks about what went into that decision:
"I wanted to be like, 'Oh, let's totally have a rock 'n' roll, goth wedding,' " Lavigne tells Jane. "But at the same time I was like, 'I've been dreaming about my wedding day since I was a little girl. I have to wear the white dress.' I wanted to be a princess, okay?"
Part of the appeal of a traditional wedding was its timelessness. "People thought I would have done, like, some black wedding dress, and yeah, I would have. But at the same time I was thinking about our pictures. ... I didn't want to be, like, 20 years later, 'Oh, why did I wear my hair like that? It's not cool now.'"
These days it seems like Avril can switch between rock-n-roll girl and princess at the drop of a hat. We personally prefer the grown up glam Avril to the punk spitting pop tart but she's lucky since apparently her fans like her either way.
