September 27 1984 in Ontario.
Avril Lavigne is famous for her 3 punkish albums that resonated well with the angsty teenagers who obviously lapped it up. She has sold 30 million records worldwide.
What went wrong?
Avril Lavigne was accused of stealing material and not giving credit where credit is due. The claims were later withdrawn, however once can be an accident, twice not so much so, but you got to wonder when it happens 3 times. She married her boyfriend Deryck Whibley in 2006. Recent reports suggest the tickets for her tour are not selling well, she has been underpaying the dancers that are supposed to accompany her on the tour and she is a general douche to her fans.
And to say she is full of herself is an understatement. Train wreck waiting to happen.
