Review: Avril Lavigne Redeems Herself On Self-Titled Fourth Album

November 8th, 2013 1:30pm EST
Avril Lavigne
“I’mma keep it real from the jump,” as Drake would rap. Avril Lavigne’s previous effort, 2011’s Goodbye Lullaby was not her crowning achievement, no questions asked.  Goodbye Lullaby had its moments, specifically with brash promo single “What The Hell” as well as “Smile”.  Otherwise though, it was merely average, particularly for a firecracker like Lavigne.  Avril Lavigne is definitely a bolder, more entertaining effort, evidenced from its opening intro on the opening track.  That isn’t to label this effort as valedictory (it’s not perfect by any meand), but there are plenty of strong showi...

While getting married usually slows people down, it has seemed to have awaken Avril’s inner “Mutherfreakin’ Princess.”

In Lavigne’s just-released new single, “Rock N Roll,” she proudly declares, “I am the motherfreakin’ princess.”

The upbeat, pop-punk song, the latest release from her forthcoming album, is a boisterous declaration of rebellion on which the 28-year-old Mrs. Chad Kroeger puts up her “middle finger to the sky” to “let ‘em know that we’re still rock and roll.”

Here’s what the Princess posted on Twitter:
