Avril Lavigne has just revealed her hit song 'Sk8er Boi' is getting made into a movie to celebrate its 20th anniversary.
Avril opened up to the She Is The Voice podcast about it - “Recently with it being almost the 20th anniversary, a lot of people have been asking me to play this song on TV shows, so it keeps getting brought back up and people will always reference it to me,” she explained. “And so, I’m actually going to turn this song into a film and take it to the next level.”
'Sk8er Boi' is still one of her fave songs to play live “to this day,” she also went on to explain the origins of the song.
“You know what it was like in high school, you have all the different groups and cliques, and there’s like skaters, preps and jocks,” she said. “It’s kind of like a missed opportunity at love. And it’s like the skater boy is in love with the preppy girl and she’s like too cool for him but then five years from now she’s feeding the baby and she’s all alone and she wishes she would have followed her heart and not tried to live up to society’s expectations.”
We can't wait to see it!
