Avril Lavigne Covers Nylon Music Issue
Posted on May 27, 2013
Singer Avril Lavigne covers the June-July issue of Nylon magazine. The issue is the music issue. It arrives on newsstands on May 29. In the interview, Avril talks about her new album, her origins in the music industry and her fiance Chad Kroeger.
On Her New Album: "I just wanted to write songs and make something that was a little more artistic. I wanted to go down that road, I wasn't trying to write a big radio record. Lyrically I pushed myself to talk about different subjects I haven't talked about before. I didn't want to be so simple. I tried to really express myself and go deeper."
On Her Origins in the Music Industry: "I wasn't the girl baring her midriff with backup dancers and a headset microphone. I came out and had a lot to say with my lyrics, and I played the guitar. I had a completely different getup, stage presence, everything."
On Her Fiance Chad Kroeger: "He does what I do--he's a rocker, he plays guitar, he's onstage every night, he writes songs[....]We were having a really good time. We hit it off as writing partners, then friends, and we started dating last summer."
The lead song from Avril's upcoming album is "Here's to Never Growing Up." Her fiance co-wrote it.
