Avril Lavigne Is Sick
Avril Lavigne revealed that she has been suffering from a mystery illness for most of 2014.

After taking an extended break due to a mystery illness, Avril Lavigne returns with the fifth single from her 2013 self-titled LP (kudos for not giving up on it). “Give You What You Like” is an eerie, stripped-back ballad with an even creepier video. It’s largely comprised of highlights from upcoming Lifetime movie Babysitter’s Black Book (it premieres February 21) intercut with footage of the 30-year-old diva channelling her inner-Wiccan in a room full of candles.

“Give You What You Like” is an absolute gem but teaming the brittle anthem with scenes from the campest teen drama of all time — the movie looks amazingly awful — does it no favors. The same goes for styling Avril like she just auditioned for a role in The Craft 2. The Canadian singer/songwriter can still churn out a great tune but perhaps it’s time to freshen up her image/exert more quality control? Watch the (unintentionally) hilarious drama unfold up top.

Is it time for Avril to shake things up? Will you be watching the movie? Answer any one of these questions in the comments below.
