Avril Lavigne has given a new interview for The Guardian, she talks about how she has struggled with record labels as they wanted her to write songs that just were not her.
“I’ve had to fight different people on this journey over those 17 years: ‘You need to do this and it needs to go Top 40.’ You make those songs cos you have to, but then the stuff that’s the best on record is the album tracks.”

Tell Me It’s Over premiered today on youtube! Avril watched the release the video together with the fans ‘you guys are so awesome I love you!!‘ said Avril on the youtube chat where fans were commenting about the video. This sound is different from her previous songs, let us know what you think about both the video and the song!
“I feel like I’ve really opened up on this record more than I ever have before. Each song tells a story that will hopefully inspire others to believe in themselves and stand up for what they know is right and what they truly deserve! Tell Me It’s Over is an anthem about being strong and finally putting your foot down and closing the door on a relationship that you know is wrong after time and time again of falling for their games. If someone doesn’t treat you the way you deserve to be treated, don’t put up with it. It’s understandably so hard because in the past every time you saw them, they sucked you in and you fell right back into their web. But not anymore starting now! The vocals and the lyrics are very vulnerable which is reflective of the feelings I got in relationships like these. I wanted to write something classic. I have been inspired by some of the timeless queens I listen to everyday at home, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Aretha Franklin and Etta James. They represent women who stand up for women and aren’t going to put up with a man’s bullshit anymore!!”
