Avril Lavigne — “What The Hell” (Live)
Avril recently told Billboard about the difficulties of making the album she wanted because of conflicts with her label:
“The biggest challenge and only challenge of this album was my record company [RCA],” says Lavigne. “I found myself in a situation on my fourth record with a bunch of people at the label who I didn’t know, and they’re coming in on my project and saying, ‘Here’s what we think you need to do for your record,’ and giving me their vision. And radio’s so rhythmic/dance-driven right now, and that’s not where I was going with this record. So I had to fight and say no, but… I ultimately made the record I wanted to.”
She and Lupe Fiasco should meet up for coffee — they’d definitely have a lot to talk about.
