What has Avril to Say?
Avril was recently in an interview with iHeartRadio where she spoke about the ongoing discussions.
She spoke about the upcoming project of the song, ”Sk8er Boi”. She kept quiet about any more details about the project. Although she did speak about her inspiration. Here is what she said.
“Recently with it being almost the 20th anniversary, a lot of people have been asking me to play this song on TV shows, so it keeps getting brought back up and people will always reference it to me. And so, I’m actually going to turn this song into a film and take it to the next level…You know what it was like in high school, you have all the different groups and cliques, and there’s like skaters, preps, and jocks. It’s kind of like a missed opportunity at love. The skater boy is in love with the preppy girl and she’s too cool for him but then five years from now she’s feeding the baby and she’s all alone and she wishes she would have followed her heart and not tried to live up to society’s expectations.”
The movie is currently under works and no information has been thrown yet.
Let’s hope for the best! Are you excited? Let us know.
