Avril Lavigne Goes To Marilyn Manson For Music And Style Advice

Everyone knows Avril Lavigne worked with Nickelback frontman (and now fiancé) Chad Kroeger on her upcoming album. But she also received a little help from Marilyn Manson.

Lavigne told MTV that Manson helped bring her out her naughty side on the song “Bad Girl, ” which will be on her untitled album, due out this September. At the last minute while recording the track Lavigne texted Manson, who she’s known since she was 18 years old, and just asked if he’d be willing to come by.

“He’s like, ‘I’ll come over and I’ll hear it,’” she explained. “So he came at 4 o’clock in the morning… Yes, it was one of those nights.”

But this isn’t the first time Manson has helped Lavigne figure something out. Last year while hanging out in Paris, Manson helped give her the confidence to shave half of her head while they were hanging out. It’s a style he has been rocking since the mid 2000s, though most attribute the hairstyle’s rise to Skrillex.

“We were hanging out backstage and we were with his band having a few drinks and I was like, ‘Let’s shave my head. I’m ready; let’s do this!’” she said. “He’s like that, though. He has fun. He wears his makeup; his wardrobe is very visual. I like his style.”

Check out Avril’s video for her latest single, “Here’s To Never Growing Up,” below. And notice, she’s since ditched the shaved look.
