Avril Lavigne - Sk8er Girl With Attitude Maxim Magazine UK Dec 2004

Avril Lavigne Sk8er Girl With Attitude Is Avril Lavigne a Pop Princess? Or the Queen Of Mean? Make your own mind up with the full Maxim photoshoot of Avril as you've never seen her before Avril Lavigne in repose. Note the belt buckle... To be honest, we were half expecting you to bitch-slap us when we walked through the door. Is that image of 'Angry Avril' the biggest misconception people have about you? After this interview, I'm going to go up the Sunset Strip with my friend, get wasted... and get pizza There are a few things. The media have portrayed me as an angry girl who's pissed off all the time. They've labelled me tons of things, but none of them really sum up who I am or what I'm like. But I'm over it and I honestly feel like that's gone away. When was the last time you had to smack a bitch down? In a bar, a few months ago. Some chick came up to me and got in my face and said something, so I kicked her in the box and shoved her. I don't go looking for fights, but if someone comes up to me and pushes me, I'm not going to take it. What did she say to you? 'You're not punk rock, blah, blah, blah .. .' Look, I never once said I was punk. I don't want to be punk. I'm just a really strong, opinionated person. Though I do like punk. Some of my favourite bands are punk bands: Pennywise, The Distillers, Green Day ... But I'm mostly into rock bands like Radiohead and Linkin Parke Some people claim your skaterpunk look is just a carefully planned image. Nobody tells me what to wear. Trust me. I'm a girl, and I'm growing up. I wrote my first album when I was a 16-year-old skater who wore size-32 pants and hoodies. I was a tomboy. I had an older brother I looked up to, and I hung out with mostly guys. Now I'm into skirts. I'm growing up, I'm changing, I'm becoming a woman. That happens to girls - they become women. So we've heard. So, cute girls can pretty much get guys to do anything? Are you saying that I'm cute? Yes. Please don't hit us in the box. Do you ever use your cuteness to make guys do something for you? When I used to go to bars with my friends, I was like, 'We're chicks - we don't pay for drinks. Let's get guys to buy us drinks.' But that was before my first album came out. Now I buy the drinks. And I'm such a party animal (Laughs). After this interview, I'm going to go up the Sunset Strip with my friend, get wasted ... and get pizza. I'm the kind of girl who, when I go to a bar or a club, I just want to get wasted, dance and hang out. What's your poison? Double shot of Grey Goose in a glass with ice. Do you have any groupies? I'm not the kind of chick who wants to get laid by random people - I'm not a guy. You're not into random sex with strangers? And you call yourself a rockstar? No. That wouldn't satisfy me. I need something deeper than that. Something honest and real. Weird. You always seem to be linked to guitar players. What's the appeal? There's nothing sexier than a guy on stage rockin' out with a guitar. It's really fucking hot. Ever get hit on by female fans? I signed a girl's boobs once. We were at an autograph signing, and this woman was like, 'Sign my boobs.' I said, 'Uh ... OK.' I didn't care. As a woman who spends a lot of time around men, what's the best advice you could give guys about women? I think it's important for guys to treat girls with a lot of respect. Put the lady first. We're delicate flowers. There's my advice: treat girls like they're princesses, because we are. OK. Miss Delicate Flower: what position do you play in hockey? Right wing and centre. I've played hockey since I was a kid. In high school our team got invited to this tournament, but I got busted for drinking the night before, so they sent me home. That was back when I'd get drunk on one beer. How many beers does is take now? Um ... one (Laughs). I'm such a cheap drunk. I can actually drink a lot - I just get buzzed on one beer. I can handle four shots of Jagermeister, but then I'm shitfaced the rest of the night. Then we're buying!
