iHeartRadio Music Festival: 5 Reasons Why We ‘Heart’ Avril Lavigne


Are you excited for the 2013 iHeart Radio Music Festival next week?

One of the rockstar performers to share a stage with Drake, Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry, and Maroon 5 is the one and only punk princess Avril Lavigne!

The “Girlfriend” singer has given the music industry a taste of originality as she refuses to fall under the social norm, so here are 5 reasons why we “heart” Avril Lavigne:

1. She Was A Hockey Star

The “Rock N Roll” singer has never been the girly-girl type. Check out #33, Avril Lavigne, as a little girl playing like one of the guys! Her involvement in one of the most aggressive sports definitely explains her rock-hard persona.

2. She’s Surprisingly a Hopeless Romantic

Even though Avril has a bad girl facade, don’t be fooled by the heavy eyeliner! The “Complicated” songstress is surprisingly a hopeless romantic. Check out her interview with Ryan Seacrest when she dished out wedding details earlier this year. It’s refreshing to see that her husband, Chad Kroeger — frontman of Nickelback — brings out the soft side in her!

3. She’s the Punk Princess

The “What the Hell” singer has been dubbed the punk-princess of Hollywood since her debut album, Let Go. Unlike other artists who go through phases of a new image and new sound, Avril has always been consistent, staying true to her punk-rock clothes and rebel-themed music!

4. She Taught Herself How to Play the Guitar

The “Here’s to Never Growing Up” songstress was BORN to be a musician. The Canadian singer-songwriter taught herself how to play the guitar and she even writes her own lyrics. Check out her live acoustic set of “My Happy Ending” … she’s a natural!

5. She Brought Out the Sk8er Boi in All of Us

How could anyone forget the punk princess’ hit song, “Sk8er Boi“? Everyone was rocking out to her hit track from her debut album the moment it hit the airwaves! Doesn’t the clip make you want to buy a skateboard and rock out to the oldie but goodie track?
