Jump to navigation Jump to search
For those who can't handle the real truth, the spinners of fake truth at Wikipedia have a thoroughly boring article on Avril Lavigne.
Welcome to The Avril Lavigne Reference Desk!


  • Do NOT ask non-Avril questions. Only ask questions relating to Avril Lavigne. Questions about Summer Glau are also permitted
  • Do your own homework. The Avril Reference Desk will not give you answers for your Avril related homework, although we will try to help you out if there is a specific part of your Avril homework you do not understand. Make an effort to show that you have tried solving it first.

How to ask a question

  • Include a title and a question. It is easier for our volunteers if question formatting is consistent.
  • Be specific. Make the title meaningful, so volunteers who can help with your question will find it. Clearly state your question and include any information that might help to understand the context (for example, a wikilink or a link to an online resource).
  • Sign your question. Type ~~~~(four tildes) at the end of your question, to let the reference desk know who is asking.

May 17[edit]


When was Avril Lavigne born? Youlipo (talk) 12:21, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

She was born on September 27, 1984 - which makes her a Libra. CP JLP (talk) 14:44, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
She is also the Air sign. Tinkril (talk) 15:24, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

The Frence[edit]

To what extent did French colonization of Northern American influence the upbringing of Avril Lavigne? Tinkril (talk) 14:46, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Well, her name is Avril Lavigne - French for April Vineyard. Youlipo (talk) 14:51, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Sherlock Holmes[edit]

Is Avril Lavigne a fan of the London based detective series Sherlock Holmes? PunkJen (talk) 14:53, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

A quick google search yields no results. I would therefore hypothesize that Avril Lavigne is not a fan of Sherlock Holmes, although I was unable to find any information on her exact feelings towards the subject matter. Youlipo (talk) 14:55, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
She probably studied it in school. Tinkril (talk) 15:24, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
If I remember correctly, Avril Lavigne dropped out of school at 16. Maybe she didn't study Sherlock Holmes then. CP JLP (talk) 15:26, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
hmm, so she may never have made an informed decision about if she is a fan or not. Youlipo (talk) 15:27, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Have Avril Lavigne and Summer Glau ever met?[edit]

The title speaks for itself.

I have been monitoring both for some time and I can say with some authority that Summer Glau and Avril Lavigne have not to date met. But it sure would be cool if they did, don't you think? Val3 (talk) 14:58, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
They have - in my dreams! Tinkril (talk) 14:59, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
IMHO I prefer Ellen Page as far as Canadians. !!!!
Ugh, you disgust me. And you call yourself a follower of Avrilology? Pillar of scroll (talk) 20:31, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

How long per day[edit]

Hello. I new to wikipedia. i hope this is thr right place to ask. i was at my computr thinking of the american singer Avril. i wondered how many peoples think about her and for how long? how long per day do the average person spend in thought of avril? thank you

Hey Massiel87, and Welcome to Wikipedia! Glad you managed to find this page, and thanks for your question. I would surmise that the average person spends approximately 2 - 3 hours per day thinking about Avril Lavigne, but of course this will be different for everyone. Personally I spend most of the day thinking of her, and most of the night as well ;) But it would be impossible to answer this further with conducting a study. Perhaps Wikipedians using the Avril Desk would like to say below:
BTW, Avril is Canadian, not American. Tinkril (talk) 17:06, 17 May 2008 (UTC)


  • 24/7 Youlipo (talk) 15:07, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
  • Maybe 5 hours a day Tinkril (talk) 15:08, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
  • One hour a day PunkJen (talk) 15:09, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
  • All day, every day. Though sometimes I also think of Captain Jean Luke Picard. CP JLP (talk) 15:15, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
We all do that from time to time lol Tinkril (talk) 15:16, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
  • To be honest, until I came here I didn't really think of her at all. Pillar of scroll (talk) 16:47, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
  • My religion stipulates a minimum of 6 hours a day in meditation to the Avril shrine in my closet. Ziggy Sawdust 20:11, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
  • About half an hour a day when I'm enjoying myself BiaNCa 26 (talk) 20:35, 17 May 2008 (UTC)


Would it be possible to create a clone of a celebrity, say of the top of my head Avril Lavigne, from some skin and hair cells? BiaNCa 26 (talk) 15:18, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Have you read the article Human cloning? Aparently you would need "an egg cell taken from the donor". Unless you can get to that bit of Avril Lavigne, which I have been trying to for years, I don't think you'll have much success. Sorry. Youlipo (talk) 15:21, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
But with advances in science all the time it wont be long till you might be able to. Remember that a clone forms to the point when it was take. So if you took the cells when Avril is 23 now then you would get a 23 year old Avril clone. I personally would try to get some 17 year old Avril DNA, then grow her up from there. PunkJen (talk) 15:23, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
Or an army of Avril clones, all perpetually youthful! Tinkril (talk) 15:23, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Teen witch[edit]

Which episode of Sabrina The Teenage Witch did Avril appear in? BiaNCa 26 (talk) 15:30, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

The episode was called "Bada-Ping!" and aired November 15, 2002. In the episode Avril Lavigne does a special performance of Sk8er Boi. See List of Sabrina, the Teenage Witch episodes#Season 7: 2002-2003 Youlipo (talk) 15:33, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
I didn' know she was on Sabrina. You learn something every day. Pillar of scroll (talk) 16:46, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Santa Clause[edit]

Wow, this is better than the AvrilLavigne.com! Ok, here is my first question: Does Avril believe in Santa Clause? Yellow girl 17 (talk) 15:34, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

I can't say whether she still believes in Santa Clause, but it is reasonable to assume that most people who grow up in Western Culture believe in Santa Clause at some point in their lives. I would doubt if she still does, but you never know. Here is a video of Avril with Santa which you might find amusing. Youlipo (talk) 15:40, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
LMAO!! That was sooo funny! Pillar of scroll (talk) 16:45, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Declaration of independence[edit]

Ok I have another question: Is there any evidence to suggest that the signing of the Declaration of independence has had a significant impact on the life of Avril Lavigne? Yellow girl 17 (talk) 15:43, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Without it American would still be owned by England, and Avril Lavigne might not be able to tour the US and live there. Pillar of scroll (talk) 16:45, 17 May 2008 (UTC)


Does anone kow what doctor Avril Lavigne is at? i want to get her medical records. Massiel87 (talk) 16:42, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Dr. Cox? Ziggy Sawdust 20:11, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
Isn't he fictional? BiaNCa 26 (talk) 20:37, 17 May 2008 (UTC)


What aphrodisiacs might work best on a 23 year old Canadian Woman? Double eye (talk) 16:51, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

I assume you mean Avril Lavigne by that? Tinkril (talk) 16:52, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
The OP might mean Serena Ryder... PunkJen (talk) 16:56, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
Maybe, but I think its unlikely. Also, Serena Ryder is 24, and the question specifies 23 years of age. Tinkril (talk) 16:57, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
According to this, all it takes is "a box of hamburgers". Bluetack keyboard (talk) 17:11, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
I see you failed to notice that Avril DENIED those claims! She would never "give it up" so easily. PunkJen (talk) 17:12, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
Also Avril is a vegetarian. Yellow girl 17 (talk) 17:13, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
Actually, in an interview she said she prefers not to eat meat, but will not say she's a vegetarian "in case anyone caught her eating meat". Tinkril (talk) 17:17, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
Whos side are you on, Tinkril? Regardless of if she is a vegetarian or not, she wouldn't do it for a box of hamburgers. PunkJen (talk) 17:18, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
Er, can we stay on topic please. Any that actually works would probably work on Avril too, but medical science has not substantiated claims that aphrodisiacs increase sexual desire or performance. Youlipo (talk) 17:21, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
George Zimmer works on everyone. Ziggy Sawdust 20:09, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
Not on me, I'm immune. BiaNCa 26 (talk) 20:40, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Online dating[edit]

Are there any online dating services that specifically cater for people wishing to date an Avril Lavigne lookalike? Any lesbian versions? BiaNCa 26 (talk) 17:30, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Not that I know of, but you could probably put in a /r/ at 7chan, it wouldn't harm you none. Ziggy Sawdust 20:09, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Global GNP[edit]

What percentage of global GNP can be atribuited to record sales of Avril Lavigne? Agent Engival (talk) 17:35, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Do you mean GDP? Unfortunately, Gross domestic product is a measure of the total market value of all final goods and services produced within a given country. However, if we add all these countries up for the year 2007 we arrive at a figure of $64,903,263,137,451,268,017. Now, according to this The Best Damn Thing sold over 5 million copies in 2007, and at about $18 each that comes to $90,000,000. So 0.386679122% of global GDP is a direct result of Avril Lavigne. Youlipo (talk) 17:51, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
You are seriously sad for working that out. Bluetack keyboard (talk) 19:25, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
Come on! What math course did you graduate from! =) 90.000.000 of $64.903.263.137.451.268.017 is approximately 90 divided by $64.903.263.137.451, which is such a small number that I won't even bother to calculate it. Cheeez. You run a higher risk of being killed by an asteroid colliding with earth wiping out all human life (someone is bound to calculate this one). Promise; I won't crap on your fan space any more, I actually came looking for Summer Glau info ;)
Ok, I did calculate it - I am weak. It is of the order 1.3e-12. Leafing through my Physics handbook (I am pathetic as well) I see that the closest I get is 0.13 atomic units = 0.053 Ångström (= atomic measurement units). The diameter of the hydrogen atom is roughly 60 times larger. Ok, nuff said. I hate bad facts. Signing off. Bye!

Doctor Who[edit]

Who thinks Avril Lavigne should be Doctor Who's next assistant? Agent Engival (talk) 18:47, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Is that a question or a statement? Double eye (talk) 18:48, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Duben révu[edit]

Could someone kind please translate "Duben révu" to French for me. I think it is in Czech. Thank you. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:19, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

Surprise, surprise! (though révu is accusative, I think). ---Sluzzelin talk 14:46, 13 May 2008 (UTC)
LMAO - Ziiiiiiiiing! --Endless Dan 15:04, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

lost fish[edit]

I am in really big trouble and none of its my fault. I very kindly offered to look after my girlfriends fish whilst she went on holiday to Teneriffe with some of her friends from work, one of who is getting married soon to frankly a very boring bloke from Sales called Darren. We don't live together despite having been in a relationship for the past five and half years. To be honest the crux of our lack of commitment to a long term relationship is due to her obsessive need to love her goldfish named Kenny after the late DJ and comedian Kenny Everett. When she's had a couple of pints of Merlot she insists on recounting the tale of how she won Kenny at a fair on the Downs just after the erstwhile entertainer passed away in 1995. Her deep held belief is that Kenny the Goldfish is the reincarnated soul of Mr Everett who has been punished for a misunderstanding during his life and his general piss taking. Sadly after only two days of looking after every whim of the ageing fish he decided to move on to having a bit of a laugh with me after I had smoked a scoobie or two. Lying with barely a movement at the top of his tank - I thought he was a gonner. I thought perhaps the kiss of life would save the fish but the slippery little sod wriggled out of my hands when I got him out of the tank - and to cut a long story short exited the seventh floor flat via the window without a parachute. Please send me some help as to a more plausible story of how the fish dissapeared - as I will be accused of murder and dumped and I love her and don't want to lose her. Can Avril Lavigne help? Yellow girl 17 (talk) 19:28, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

I'm sorry about your fish, but I don't see how Avril Lavigne can help you. Youlipo (talk) 19:44, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Album sales[edit]

In terms of album sales, is Avril Lavigne's new music, "The Best Damn Thing" better or worse than her old music (Let go, Under my Skin)? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Villagers revenge (talkcontribs) 10:46, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

In billboard magazine, it recently emerged that Avril is the 5th highest selling artist, worldwide, in terms of album sales since the turn of the Millennium with 30 million. This should be reflected in the article.

Avril rulez (talk) 12:56, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

I agree. Do you have a link for that? (BTW I love your user name!!) Emac1 (talk) 12:25, 15 May 2008 (UTC)

The info looks good but we need a source from a reputable third party? Anyone? 12:45, 15 May 2008 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Seven seven and eleven (talkcontribs)
Right. I've had a look but I can only find references to this on message boards and such. Anyone have a link to the actual billboard article? Emac1 (talk) 18:18, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
Sorry mate, but no. It appears to be a phantom article, and alas, without a reputable source to cite in the article, I fear this vital information will not be included. Villagers revenge (talk) 18:20, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
That is a real shame. Maybe those Villagers of yours could "persuade" someone to look into it? Emac1 (talk) 18:21, 15 May 2008 (UTC)

Oh please stop and just add the damn link already! I'm growing tried of hearing about Avril Lavigne. Pikecatcher (talk) 20:16, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
Then may I ask, kind sir, what are you doing on the Avril Lavigne page? Emac1 (talk) 20:17, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
Do get smart with me, buster. I'm simply saying that I think everyone has had just about enough of Avril Lavigne. Can you go and do something more productive? Pikecatcher (talk) 20:18, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
Please remain calm, Pikecatcher. If you don't want to read about Avril Lavigne, then simply move onto a different page. There are many people who love Avril, and just because you are not one of them does not mean the rest of us should be deprived of our daily Lavigne fix. Emac1 (talk) 20:19, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
What, is that a euphemism for wanking over her or something? You are a sick piece of shite. Pikecatcher (talk) 20:20, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
That last comment could be seen as a personal attacks. Please discontinue. Emac1 (talk) 20:21, 15 May 2008 (UTC)

I am not trying to stop you from arguing your point, which right now seems to be you don't like Avril Lavigne. But calling other users offensive words will not be tolerated. Emac1 (talk) 20:27, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
I think you handled yourself very well here, Emac1. That user was obviously trolling, and only here to prove others. Lop lop 7 (talk) 20:29, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
b2t: since this is an encyclopedia, we should not judge her music.. the best damn things is just one of her albums.. and thats it.. i dont think we should say "this is worse" or "this one is better" or "she changed her style and music and now she sucks" or anything like that even if the number of sales may say something else. if one is interested in those numbers, he/she can read the album articles :) --Darth NormaN (talk) 10:40, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

Why Is She Famous?[edit]

Young Avril Lavigne literally came out of nowhere -- nowhere being the town of Napanee, Ontario -- and rose to the top of the charts with her single "Complicated." Why? Massiel87 (talk) 20:49, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Because she is fantastic!! Youlipo (talk) 20:51, 17 May 2008 (UTC)


Is Adam Lavigne related to Avril Lavigne? Double eye (talk) 20:51, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

No, they have no relation whatsoever. Besides, Adam Levine has a different surname to Avril Lavigne. Youlipo (talk) 20:52, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Old or new[edit]

Do you prefer the old sk8ter chick Avril or the new pink rocker Avril?

I personally prefer the Kanaria-styled Avril, although she has yet to exist, so I'm going to pick "sk8r grl" Avril. Ziggy Sawdust 15:08, 18 May 2008 (UTC)
