Avril Lavigne is the subject of the new television special, Avril Lavigne: Anything But Ordinary, airing Sunday (June 8) on the ABC-Family cable network at 9 p.m. ET. The show chronicles Lavinge’s childhood growing up in Canada, her family life, and her music.
The “I’m With You” singer told the program she’s living the life she’s always dreamed. “I have this awesome opportunity to fulfill my dream,” she said. “I am all over the place, flying here and there, going through different stuff every day.”
During the show, the 18-year-old singer confides that she used to fantasize about being a rock star when she was a child. She said, “I remember when I was really young, standing on my bed like I was on stage, singing at the top of my lungs and visualizing thousands of people surrounding me.”
Lavigne burst onto the scene with her 2002 breakout single “Complicated,” which peaked at Number Two on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Three of the singer’s songs off her debut album, Let Go, have cracked the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100.
