Sorry friends, but shes not going away anytime soon!

Lavigne releasing live CD, DVD
Avril Lavigne’s live CD and DVD, “My World,” is due out Sept. 29 and promises live footage from her world tour, plus backstage and on-the-road shenanigans with her band and opening acts.
“I can’t really think of anything off the top of my head, but we toured with Gob and Simple Plan,” Lavigne says, referring to two fellow Canadian pop-punk bands prone to silly antics. “We do a lot of skateboarding and scooter-ing around in the venues. Kind of felt like I was back in high school for a bit.”
Meanwhile, now that the Napanee, Ont. native is off the road after non-stop touring behind her 2002 debut, “Let Go,” which has sold over 13 million albums worldwide, she will get to work on her next studio album. Lavigne has been playing both electric and acoustic guitar onstage backed by a solid group of rock musicians, all in their early 20s, that has helped toughen her music.
“I think I’ve really come along in my songwriting and I really believe in myself, and I’m going to make a record that I really feel and that comes from inside, and my feelings,” Lavigne says. “I did that on the last record but more so on this record because I’ve had time to grow and become a better writer, a better guitar player, and I’ve learned more about studio work.”
As for the big screen treatment of Lavigne’s hit single, “Sk8er Boi” that Paramount Pictures has optioned and Dark Angel/ER writer David Zabel will create, the 18-year-old singer-songwriter is keeping her distance, despite the fact that the song’s co-writers, the Matrix, have signed on as consultants.
“The movie has nothing to do with me,” Lavigne says. “I don’t have any say in it. And no, I won’t be in it.”
