My early memory of Avril mostly revolves around MHE. I remember watching her perform MHE on a TV special. But even then I did not know her. I just felt good whenever MHE, SKB, or Complicated would come on the radio over the years.
GF was the song that really made me a fan during 8th grade. I asked my cousin to download it for me and she judged me for it. Then I finally got internet and I was finally able to dig deep into who Avril Lavigne was. I heard every song and saw every video. There was no one like her. The boy bashing songs, her acoustic sets, her documentaries and her style in the TBDT era was everything to me.
I don‘t exactly remember everything anymore but I think Girlfriend was the beginning of my Avril Lavigne journey. I was a little kid back then trying to figure out what the Internet is and how Youtube works. It‘s possible that I was around 11 years old when I started listening to Avril Lavigne but without even knowing that it was Avril. As a kid I used to go in my room and dance to my favorite songs and pretend like I was giving a concert. xD Girlfriend was one of those songs and I remember dancing around with flowers in my hand. And for the following years I always listened to girlfriend and her Let Go and UMS songs and I loved them. For all those years I didn’t even realize that it was Avril Lavigne. GL came out and I remember listening to WTH and Smile and loving it. And all of a sudden I started realizing that I was listening to Avril Lavigne. It was my first experience of being a fan. I never was a fan of anyone before that. Well I loved Zack & Cody though.. lol And now I‘m here, 23 years old, loving music and looking for music.
A lot of time has passed now and Avril Lavigne is really a special one for me. Her voice, her music, everything touches me in a different way. She has been a big part of my life for so long now.
I was 10. My brother saw the Complicated video on the music channel “The Box” and told me he thought I’d like her. In true younger sister style I disagreed and told him it was rubbish. 17 years later here I am!
