Interview by Carolina Benjumea

Back then, when the iPod was introduced for the first time, smartphones weren’t really a thing, Instagram was an unknown field, Myspace was the go-to website for mirror selfies, and Velour tracksuits were trending, there was already Avril Lavigne. Those who were fortunate enough to be teenagers during the 2000s sang Complicated at the top of their lungs, shed tears while listening to I’m With You, fell in love with a Sk8er Boi, sported hot-pink and black sock-arm accessories, and proudly wore black eyeliner under their eyes. Avril Lavigne left an indelible mark on every facet of millennial teenagers’ lives. Credited with pioneering the pop-punk genre, she defied the typical pop star archetype, instead embodying your average teenager: cool, edgy, rebellious, unapologetic, and vulnerable.


She went viral before the concept of virality even existed, as “Girlfriend” became the first music video to surpass 100 million views on YouTube. Additionally, she holds the Guinness World Record as the youngest female solo artist to reach the top of the UK chart. Recognized as the “Teen-Pop Slayer,” she boasts an impressive history of accomplishments. Selling close to 50 million albums worldwide, receiving eight GRAMMY® Award nominations and wining eight Juno Awards, Avril became third bestselling Canadian female artist of all-time. Her catalog comprises the septuple platinum Let Go [2002], triple-platinum Under My Skin [2004], double-platinum The Best Damn Thing [2007], gold-selling Goodbye Lullaby [2011], gold-selling Avril Lavigne [2013], and Head Above Water [2019].


As Avril Lavigne continues to evolve her lyrics to reflect her own life and the experiences of her fanbase, keeping her edge and signature punk-rock vibes, her influence is still felt by younger generations. Today, Gen-Z is discovering her iconic songs and finding resonance in the same experiences that resonated with their Millennial counterparts. While Millennials have grown up, have corporate jobs, some even a family life, Avril’s teenage anthems still evoke memories of first loves and heartbreaks. Listening to one of her songs is like being transported back to the magical era of Y2K, the only difference now is that instead of playing Complicated on our CDs, we simply say, “Alexa, play Complicated.”


We had the opportunity to speak with Avril Lavigne about her career, her timeless songs, and the reasons why, after 20 years, she continues to hold the title of the “Teen-Pop Slayer”.


You have had such a successful career, but please tell us the story of how did you start singing?

As a young child, I started singing at church, school plays, theater, and country music at country fairs in my small town in Canada, and this is where I really first fell in love.


Your music played an important role during the 2000s. Hits like Sk8er Boi, Complicated, or Girlfriendare still significantly iconic for a whole generation, how were you able to create music that stands the test of time and touched so deeply so many young people?

I think these songs stay iconic because they are relatable. When I was writing them, I was just a teenagergoing through my own ups and downs, which were probably really similar to what other people were going through. I wrote about my experiences, my emotions, and the challenges I was facing at the time. Thesesongs captured a moment in time and making it timeless is truly special; getting to watch generation after generation rediscover these songs.


Your first album, Let Go, was released in 2002, and your most recent album, Love Sux, came out in 2022. That’s 20 years in the business! How has your music matured or evolved over all these years?

My music has matured because I have matured.  I love looking back on my past albums because it is like atime capsule for what I was going through at the time. With “Let Go,” I was a rebellious teenager full ofenergy and angst. On my second album, “Under My Skin,” I was able to dive deeper into my emotions, it was a bit darker and  allowed me to really connect with my fans. Most recently, with “Love Sux,” I was writing an album as someone who had experienced love, heartbreak, and all the emotions in between. Every album is a musical transformation, but what threads everything together is my commitment to authenticity. As I close out my Love Sux era, I am really excited to start what’s next.


How has your fanbase changed over the years?

I have really been lucky to be able to grow up with my fans, because when I started, they were the same age as me! We were all teenagers connected over this edgy and relatable music. It was also a really special time because with the rise of the internet, my fans were able to connect with other fans all over the world. I know a lot of people were able to make friends at my shows and stay connected over the internet to continue to share their passion. My fans are truly the best, and they have unwavering dedication and passion for everything I do. I really would not be here, 20 years later, without ‘The Black Stars.’


Please tell us about Love Sux, what was your inspiration for this album?

Love is such a universal feeling, and we all go through its ups and downs. This album reflects the raw emotions that come with navigating all facets of love. Whether it is dealing with a breakup, feeling lost, orfinding empowerment after heartache, I wanted this album to capture those vulnerable moments and turn them into upbeat anthems. Musically, I wanted to create an album that had live guitars and drums. I was super inspired by everyone I was collaborating with and had a lot of fun creating this album. It was produced byTravis Barker from Blink 182 and John Feldman from Goldfinger, two very cool legendary artists in the punk rock community that I am lucky to now call my friends.


For your Love Sux Album you collaborated with Machine Gun Kelly, Blackbear, Mark Hoppus. Haveyou ever considered exploring other genres of music, maybe a dream collaboration with a very different artist?

I’m always up for exploring new collaborations and pushing boundaries when it comes to my music. I justcame back from Nashville and spent some time with Miranda Lambert, and am really looking forward to spending more time with her in the future. She is fucking rad, down to earth, and has such a passion for her music. She is a phenomenal songwriter. Plus, I am a huge fan of country music. I love connecting withother artists and seeing where our time in the studio takes us. Whether the next collaboration is another rock artist, or a completely different genre, I am open as long as they share my love for creating and for music.


If I’m not mistaken, you write your own Can you describe your creative process when you’re in the songwriting mode?

You are absolutely right! I love writing my own songs, and working in the studio is one of my happy places. Itusually starts with a concept that pops into my head at random times in my life, and I put it in my phone. I’mlegit always jotting notes down. Sometimes I am working on one song and then I get hit with inspiration for a whole new one. Then, I’ll either sit down with a guitar or the  piano and start working through the song and call up one of my producers to get it started. Lately I have really enjoyed collaborating with other artists and songwriters. It is so special to bounce ideas around, push the boundaries of my creativity, and really exploredifferent perspectives with other talented people.


Throughout your extensive career, you must have had many incredible Could you share one of the most memorable moments from your career?

There are so many incredible moments from the last 20 years. My most recent memorable moment was receiving my star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame last August. I had so many of my friends out to the ceremony, like Machine Gun Kelly, John Feldman, and so many others. There’s a picture of me from one ofmy first times in Hollywood lying next to a star wearing a sweatshirt that says “Skateboarding is Not a Crime,” and I still have that sweatshirt today. I wore it at the ceremony! It really was full circle.


What does the future hold for Avril Lavigne? Are there any upcoming projects or plans that you can share with us?

While I can’t share too much yet, I am really excited about what the future holds. I am constantly writing and creating new music, so I’m working through what that looks like. In addition to that, I’m consistently exploring new creativeventures and embracing new opportunities to grow as an artist. I’m really excited about two upcoming film projects, the Sk8er Boi Movie and a documentary. Just kno

Film à Sketches

Film à Sketches offers a divergent definition of visual storytelling. What propelled you to delve into the concept of an “editorial in motion”? 


The audience these days is very smart and can read the tone of a film instantly. At the same time, it is rather common to use lots of cuts and give a lot of visual information quickly. I wanted to go against this trend and slow down, focusing on the mise-en-scène and the small nuances in the performance, making the audience savour the moment. I had seemingly unconnected ideas for Film à Sketches so after some consideration I figured making a series of short snippets instead of a classic fashion film would be a natural way for the narrative to unfold. This way, it reminds of the fashion editorials where images often have different settings and are only loosely connected with the models and the tone.

What was the collaboration with the Georgian brand Situationist like? Why did they take the spotlight in your series?


It all happened very naturally. I came to Georgia for an extended holiday and then decided to shoot the project there. There are quite a few interesting local brands and a high level of local talent and craftsmanship. And from a whole lot, the style of Situationist spoke to me the most. It comprises a very unique look, impeccable tailoring and libertine spirit. When I was planning the film series, I knew that because of the very little action happening on the screen every element had to be special. Situationist’s clothing with the beautiful arrangement by Nele van Olfen, stylist on the project, gave a certain armour to our cast and united them into an ensemble of characters. 


I also wanted to achieve a look hard to pin down time-wise. Generally, when you see a fashion film, there are the cues which give you an understanding of which trend cycle/time it represents. I wanted to “confuse” the audience a little and use the cues to send mixed messages. Situationist fits this idea perfectly. Irakli Rusadze, creative director of the brand, makes garments that have a very nostalgic, but at the same time modern feeling about them. The brand is versatile and eclectic and it follows its own way. Some of the films are on a gloomy, malicious side, some are more humorous. Locations also range significantly and yet there is always a fit between the environment and the characters. The clothing connected the films together.


How did you leverage the rich landscapes of Georgia to add to the overall aesthetic and narrative of the project? 


Georgia’s nature is absolutely spectacular and diverse. You can shoot anywhere. However we wanted to try to find some less known area which would seem more neutral. We did not want to have a “Made in Georgia” cliche. We ended up shooting the outdoor scenes in the Kvemo Kartli region near the village called Assureti which was founded by 72 German families from Swabia in the beginning of 19th century. It still has a beautiful Lutheran church which is seen in two films. The water scenes were shot at the Algeti Reservoir. 

The storyboard appears intriguing. Walk us through locations you used for your editorial in motion. 


We were incredibly lucky to find those amazing locations. The fencing was shot in the gym in Vake, Tbilisi where the national team of Georgia (they are doing very well lately, especially in sabre) is training. I trained there for a month and then they were so lovely to allow us to shoot. There is no particular reason for fencing except for my personal interest. My dad was a serious fencer as well so maybe it comes from childhood. 


We shot the photo studio scene in Saburtalo, the university district of Tbilisi. I invited Roman, a 70 year old chess player whom I met in a chess federation during location scouting. He had no idea about an amazing Georgian fashion scene and yet he is now in the film which I find very cool. The woman taking pictures is Lika, local tv producer. To me, she looks a lot like Annie Leibowitz – I don’t know if anyone noticed it but that was the idea. The office scene was shot in a beautiful Architecture Bureau in the old town. I imagined a Pink Panther inspired film. These two girls are very busy working so one of the girls is so surprised to see the mysterious figure that she faints. Another one is so busy on her phone that she does not even notice him. That was probably the hardest take in the whole project as we had to make sure the tailoring looked great after each attempted fainting. 


Lastly, the 12th film is the first film featuring all models together, so it was perfect for the closure. We did think that it would be great to add some small joke into it so I asked our Sound Recordist to be in the shot. It’s a standard gag used in many films or sketches. It’s just another way to counterpoint the serious “fashion” feeling – not taking ourselves too seriously. 


Considering the visual part of the series, can you share some insights into the process of selecting and integrating sound effects and styling elements? In what way did the collaborative nature contribute to shaping the overall vision and execution of the project? 


The video material itself is very understated and subtle so the music and sound effects played a key element in shaping the tone. I wanted a diverse range of references to be used. We took a look on various crime films from 60s and 70s such as Point Blank, American Friend, Le Samuraï and etc. We also used some simple ambient sounds for shorter clips, to “fill” the atmosphere and achieve the dreamy texture. There were lots of long and enduring nights of back and forth sessions with the composer and the sound designer to create the perfect score. This department definitely took the most time. 


8 to 30 seconds seem like a limited time frame to work with. Yet, as brief as it may be, what challenges did you face while working on its post-production?


It was definitely a breeze to edit the project as it features one or two cuts in 11 films! Only the photo studio scene needed some proper editing work. Music, Sound Design and Colour Grading did take a lot of time as it was very important to find the right solutions to fit our tone. 


Maintaining a loose connection yet preserving individuality in 12 short films — how did you achieve this narrative structure? 


We shot a lot of material and we actually had a lot of different options. There were 15 films in the beginning. In the end we decided to stay on the number 12 as it’s a very symbolic number and it just felt right. The key here is that some films are just short snippets while others have a narrative. To me, this eclecticism makes the project more light hearted and interesting. 

What kind of response or impact do you hope to elicit from viewers? In your opinion, will this format gain momentum in the future?


I hope the audience will be brave and patient enough to watch and enjoy one frame lasting thirty seconds. And of course I hope the subtle content will gain momentum in the future. In the end, we have a lot of screens and something has to play on them.


What are you working on next? 


I am working on two fashion films at the moment. First one will be a dark Berlin take on the tango scene. The second one would be an homage to 60s European thrillers, we will shoot in Piemonte in Italy.
