Believe it or not, our favorite blushing new bride from The Great White North is almost 29!!!
Avril Lavigne performed for the Extra crowd yesterday and then sat down with Maria Menounos to discuss a few topics way more controversial than the Here's to Never Growing Up singer's birthday!
These days every lady musician is asked to comment on Miley Cyrus' lines-blurring performance from last month's VMAs and this episode of Conversations with Maria Menounos was no exception! Sadly, though, as Cher's flubb-ish faux pas proved, saying what's truly on your mind leads to serious backlash!
So, did Avril appreciate MileyBird's stage antics?
She coyly revealed:
“A lot of people are talking about [the VMAs] so I guess that’s a good thing for her.”
Well, that's a non-answer if we ever heard one!!!
Maria also asked the recently wed rocker about colleague Pink.
“I think Pink’s a really good singer… She was signed before I was to LA Reid and he discovered me as well and so I remember when I first got signed to Arista Records when I was 15 and getting a copy of her CD. Her sound was so different back then to how it is now. Now she’s more like pop rock. I’ve seen her change. I just feel really grateful to still be here today making music."
You've seen her change, eh? That's cryptic!
Then Maria wanted to know if Avril was even friends with her, Britney Spears, and Christina Aguilera, all of whom are considered members of the same pop generation!
Chad Kroeger's wife simply responded:
“Nope (laughs) But it’s kind of cool that everyone’s still around.”
Whoa!!! Another skillfully diplomatic, but not super complimentary answer!!
Maybe there's a career in politics in her post-rock future! She should totally run for Mayor of Canada, LOLz!!
