Avril Lavigne's 17-Carat Ring & 8 Other Times She Proved Her Love for Fancy Things
Avril Lavigne may have built her personal brand on being too-cool-to-care about things like wedding anniversaries and fancy jewelry, but don't be fooled: Avril Lavigne likes to have nice things. Like shiny, sparkly, 17-carat things. Daily Mail reports that last Thursday, Lavigne tweeted a cool, casual photo of the 17-carat diamond ring her husband Chad Kroeger bought her as a first anniversary gift, proving that behind her rock-chick exterior is a girly girl who loves all the sparkly sparklies. Lavigne might talk a good game about being about being hardcore, but her song lyrics tell a different story. The truth is, Lavigne is just a regular celebrity and not-so-secret princess who gets 17-carat engagement rings as gifts, just like the rest of 'em. She isn't afraid to ask for what she wants. And what she wants are fancy cocktails, a closet full of fancy dresses, and cupcakes in her face.
Celebrities. They're just like us.
Beneath her rock and roll exterior is a surprisingly squishy and un-rock and roll core of cupcakes, shiny things, and Instagram pictures of her anniversary presents. Here is a breakdown and in-depth analysis of Lavigne's lyrics de-coded, showing us that she is all. about. luxury. And limoncello. It appears limoncello is her beverage of choice.
"Someone chuck a cupcake at me."
She wants all the cupcakes. NOW.
"I Can Do Better"
"I will drink as much limoncello as I can."
Elegant. Sophisticated. Refined.
"Does your pretty face see what he's worth?"
If you don't make a move, Avril Lavigne will. She's not about to let an monied single gent go to waste.
"I Always Get What I Want"
"Get me what I want/Everything I don't got/Get me what I want/Cause I'm a big shot."
She likes nice things, and she's not afraid to ask for them.
"I think you know I’m damn precious/ And Hell Yeah/I’m the motherfucking princess."
She gets what she wants.
"Rock N Roll"
"I am the motherfucking princess."
This is a recurring theme.
"I wanna lock you up in my closet when no one's around."
She may or may not be hoarding a closet full of shiny things?
"You Never Satisfy Me"
I wanted to be left alone, not shown around like your golden prize."
She's ok with "princess", but she draws the line at "trophy wife".
"Give You What You Like"
When you turn off the lights/ I get stars in my eyes.
All she sees are DIAMONDSDIAMONDSDIAMONDSDIAMONDSPARKLES.
