人物傳記

        2007 was a big year for Avril Lavigne. She released her third album, The Best Damn Thing, which took her career to the next level. The first single “Girlfriend” was a global hit, and its music video was also the first video to reach 100 million views on YouTube. Between 2002 and 2013, she put out five very successful studio albums and toured worldwide.

        In 2014, Lavigne was diagnosed with Lyme disease, a bacterial infection caused by a tick bite. During the worst stages of the illness, Lavigne was too weak to even get out of bed. The disease kept her out of the spotlight for almost four years. Her experience inspired her to raise awareness of Lyme disease via The Avril Lavigne Foundation.

10 Lavigne returned in 2019 with her sixth album, Head Above Water. The singer described the album as an “emotional journey” following her recovery. Through this journey, she found herself falling in love with music all over again.

        Fans across the world were delighted to see Lavigne return to full power with the release of her seventh album, Love Sux. With this album, she’d like people to know their  self-worth and put themselves first. After 20 years in the music industry, Avril Lavigne is still at the top of her game.
