Avril Lavigne's most recent album and tour were a huge fail, especially in comparison to her previous - much more successful - efforts.
And, as artists are prone to do, the singer and "songwriter" is looking to blame anyone and everyone but herself.
Sources reveal exclusively to PerezHilton.com that April has just fired her longtime manager and management company, Terry McBride of Nettwerk.
"Avril is hoping that new management can help her new album be more successful than the last," a source tells us.
Lavigne has now hired Irving Azoff and his management company to represent her, they work with such artists like Christina Aguilera and the Eagles.
Good luck with, April. She really NEEDS your help!
