After fans around the world ‘unlocked’ three behind the scenes clips of her new video, Avril Lavigne has now released the full version of Here’s To Never Growing Up. Lavigne and her band arrive just in time to liven up a sleepy prom, playing for the crowd of teens, with Lavigne later seen performing solo in a locker room and leading the crowd through the hallways on her skateboard.
During the performance scenes with her band, Lavigne’s smudged eyeliner and oversized prom queen crown bring to mind Courtney Love in Hole’s iconic 1994 video for Miss World.
The flashbacks don’t stop there. Playing on the theme of never growing up, Avril dons black Dickie shorts, a white tank top and her signature neck tie while skateboarding through the hallway of the high school. Switching up her new look of long curls for sleek and straightened hair do, Lavinge shows she’s every bit the skater girl she was when she burst on the music scene in 2002 with Complicated.
Always wanting to keep her fans in the loop, there is a phone number on a chalk board in one of the final scenes of the video. And it’s real. (Insert winky face)
Avril’s fifth studio album is set to be released sometime in September and features guest appearances from Marilyn Manson and Avril’s fiance and Nickleback frontman, Chad Kroeger.Tweet
