What the Hell: Is Avril Lavigne dead?
It’s hard to say how or why the elusive “death hoax” occurs. It doesn’t necessarily indicate the allegedly dead celeb’s irrelevance or falling out of favour (Johnny Depp was the subject of a faux driving fatality last January), nor does it mean the opposite (remember when word spread that Stephanie Tanner from Full House was dead when she was just addicted to meth?). At any rate, the latest undead celeb is Napanee’s own Avril Lavigne. Over the weekend, an article published on Global Associated News claimed the Sk8er Gurl had died in a snowboarding accident. Turns out the site is actually a death hoax generator, where visitors can simply enter a celebrity’s name to generate semi-plausible stories.
Still, all was not totally merry and bright for Lavigne over the holiday break. The singer’s beau, Brody Jenner, was injured in a surfing accident (in true reality star style, he’s been reporting on the recovery process via Twitter). But bloody-limbed boyfriends and bogus deaths aside, the real question is: will Lavigne’s career live or die in the new year? The first single off her upcoming album got its debut on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve. The catchy tune is titled “What the Hell,” not to be confused with the forthcoming “Why the Hell Does Everyone Keep Saying I’m Dead?”

I didn’t hear about her being dead. Really, I don’t think anyone cares, not whether she’s alive or dead, but about her career. She had her sk8er boi moment when nobody knew any better, but I don’t like the good girl thing much.
Good girl thing! Are you kidding. The only thing AL seems to be good at these days is getting crazy drunk and causing a scene.
Well, I just wondered about this because I thought I heard about this but I thought it was a hoax… I just thought about her because she sang at the winter olympics in 2006 in Torino Italy and she sang at the passing of the Olympic flag to canada idk
I am very excited for Avril’s return, I sick of the currently popular female artists of the last couple of years, the bore me to death. I miss Avril and I want her to come back in a big way.
Avril is coming back BIG =)!
i never heard about her being dead…thats kinda strange..
i mean like i havent heard about her in a while tho..?
Dead??? No just busy doin’ PRO-ACTIVE COMMERCIALS…next stop Condo Sales Centre Openings…
Female hoser who can’t sing.
Why does everyone keep saying that Avril’s dead? I don’t get it. When she really does die though, and hopefully that’s not very soon, no one will believe it. Not sure about her new single though… hopefully the rest of her album is better. :)
