Popstar Avril Lavigne has revealed that she is working on a film adaptation of “Sk8r Boi,” her hit track from 2002 debut album Let Go.
“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,” Lavigne said during an installment of the “She Is the Voice” podcast. “And so, I’m actually going to turn this song into a film and take it to the next level.”
“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. It’s kind of like a missed opportunity at love,” she continued. “The skater boy is in love with the preppy girl and she’s 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.”
Lavigne did not reveal any further details about the film.
“Sk8er Boi” was released as the second single from Lavigne’s debut album, Let Go. The song was well-received by critics and also received a Grammy nomination for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance.
Meanwhile, Lavigne is set to embark on a Canadian tour in 2022 with support from grandson starting in May.
