    We Need To Talk About Avril Lavigne In 2018

    She's coming.

    In the past week, I've come to terms with something I was secretly hiding and harboring in my decaying cell of a body. It was something I never said out loud, something I kept hidden, something I considered shameful...but I can proudly say I'm finally ready to come out. Yes, I am an Avril gay. Yes, I am proud of it.

    I had the realization when I was listening to her greatest hits on Spotify and realized she had bop after bop. Yes, she was annoying and mean to Britney in the past, but, like most gays, I can forgive and forget if you bring consistent bops.

    Life has been better ever since I decided to stan Avril. I suggest you do the same.

    That brings me to her first new song in YEARS.

    Last week, Avril quietly released a song called "Head Above Water." I know, I know, gay people are dramatic and I exaggerate a lot...but this song is gorgeous.

    It's a huge power ballad that she wrote when she almost died of Lyme disease. In case you didn't know, Avril was diagnosed with Lyme disease in 2014. She told People:

    “One night, I thought I was dying, and I had accepted that I was going to die. My mom laid with me in bed and held me. I felt like I was drowning. Under my breath, I prayed ‘God, please help to keep my head above the water.’ In that moment, the song writing of this album began."


    "'Head Above Water' is the first song I wrote from my bed during one of the scariest moments of my life. I had accepted death and could feel my body shutting down. I felt like I was drowning. Like I was going under water and I just needed to come up for air. Like I was in a river being pulled in a current. Unable to breathe."

    The song is cool and interesting because it's been a solid #2 on the US iTunes charts all week and is coming for that #1 with virtually no promo. That's impressive!

    Oh wow, Avril has been #2 for like a full week on iTunes and is rising. The general public loves a vocal moment 😌😌😌

    In conclusion, this post was just an excuse to to find other like-minded closeted and/or out Avril stans because I need to talk about this song with someone.

    Ok, real last "in conclusion," in 2018, we support Avril Lavigne. Thank you and goodbye.
