Where Did Avril Lavigne Go?

Canadian singer and songwriter Avril Lavigne was affectionately dubbed “pop punk’s princess” by her fans and music critics alike for her unique grunge style and fusion of pop and punk elements in her music. Known for hits like “Complicated,” “I’m With You,” “Girlfriend,” and “Sk8er Boi,” the singer skyrocketed to fame after releasing a string of hit albums in the 2000s. Then, in 2014, she took all her fans by surprise by disappearing from the public eye altogether.

Avril Lavigne’s battle with Lyme disease

Turns out, the singer disappeared from the music scene because she was privately battling Lyme disease, a condition that reportedly made Lavigne feel like she “was drowning” and left her bedridden for two years. Her sixth studio album, Head Above Water, released in 2019, was about her medical journey.

Called ‘punk’s princess’ for her eclectic style, multi-colored hair, and bold, black eyeliner that she rocked so effortlessly in each music video, Lavigne was one of the 2000’s best-known faces. Her songs were featured in hit movies like Sweet Home Alabama (2002), Legally Blonde 2 (2003), The Princess Diaries 2 (2004), and Bruce Almighty (2003).

Comeback in 2019 and release of Love Sux

In 2019, the singer-songwriter returned to music-making with her sixth studio album, Head Above Water. The album featured songs like “Warrior,” which describes Lavigne’s battle with Lyme disease and how she survived. According to Lavigne, the album’s name was inspired by her plea to God to help her “keep her head above water” on a particularly dark day when she thought she wasn’t going to make it.

Her latest album, Love Sux, was released on 25th February 2022. Fans of Avril Lavigne can listen to the singer’s latest tracks in collaboration with artists like Machine Gun Kelly, Blackbear, and Mark Hoppus of Blink-182.
