Avril: I’m not dead..



AVRIL Lavigne has confirmed that she’s not dead!

The Canadian rocker finally addressed a long-running urban myth that claimed she passed away shortly after her first album in 2003.

Conspiracy theorists believe she was then replaced by a look-a-like named Melissa Vandella.

Two decades on Avril said: “It’s just funny to me, on one end everyone is like, ‘Oh my god you look the exact same, you haven’t aged a day,’ but then on the other hand it’s like, ‘There’s this conspiracy theory that I am not me.’

“I mean obviously I am me, it is so dumb!”

Avril will prove she’s alive and kicking when she rocks Glastonbur­y Festival for the first time this summer.

And it sounds like she will be getting stuck in with the camping masses rather than helicopter­ing out to a posh hotel.

She explained: “I like touring with my friends, days off taking the bus to a campsite, and camping and pulling up to a RV site instead of going to a hotel and sitting there staring at the ceiling like, ‘What is my life.’”

Naturally she’ll bring some home comforts to Worthy Farm including her legendary Hello Kitty collection.

She laughed: “That tour bus is my home, it’s Hello the f*** Kitty everything, I have like 20 Hello Kitty pillows in the front lounge and I’ve got Hello Kitty bedding, Hello Kitty towels – everything is pink and fun!”

It’s 22 years since her signature song hit No1 but Avril still has a soft spot for Sk8ter Boi.

In fact, she might be looking for one at Glasto if they can party as hard as she can.

The Complicate­d songstress, 39, told the Call Her Daddy podcast her dream date likes “playing beer pong until the sun comes out” and getting “matching tattoos”.
