Avril Lavigne takes a little help from ‘Sk8er Boi’ Tony Hawk for her first-ever TikTok video
Avril Lavigne has finally made her TikTok debut and she chose the perfect song for it. The 36-year-old singer was seen lip-syncing on one of her 2002 hits, “Sk8er Boi.” To make the video even more perfect, Avril opted for her signature look from the 2000s. She wore a graphic tee and pair of black shorts and completed her look with a red-and-blue striped tie.
Another surprise that Avril Lavigne gave her fans in her first-ever TikTok video was having the 53-year-old skateboard legend, Tony Hawk.
Lavigne shared her screen during the chorus part with Tony who appeared in the same loose necktie as he skates back and forth on a miniature vert ramp on his pink board. She captioned the video, “He was a… @tonyhawk #GoSkateboarding.” This video certainly made many people nostalgic and the video got almost 1.5 million likes within six hours.
“This is the collab we all wanted in middle school,” a fan commented, while another one said, “what in 2003 is this???”
Many fans were amazed at how young and beautiful Avril Lavigne looked in her TikTok video as if she hasn’t aged a day. A fan wrote, “Girl hasn’t aged since 2000” while another fan called her a “non-aging vampire.”
The Canadian singer also posted an announcement post of her first TikTok on her IG page with a caption, “I just posted my first @tiktok with the legendary @tonyhawk… go check it out!”
Avril Lavigne made a comeback in the music industry in 2019 with her song “Head Above Water,” after almost 6 six years of break. “Head Above Water,” which is the song from Avril’s album of the same name, became a big hit on Billboard’s Hot Christian Songs chart, peaking at No. 2 in 2019.
In 2014, Avril was diagnosed with Lyme disease, a life battling illness, which caused her extreme fatigue and joint pain and left the singer bedridden for months.
“Music has been more healing than ever for me,” Lavigne explained in an interview. “I was at a point where I wasn’t sure whether I’d be working or even doing music again, and then I started writing songs from my bedroom. ‘Head Above Water’ and ‘Warrior’ were the first two songs that I wrote, and then they just kept coming. It was cool for me to see because it showed me that music is such a big part of who I am without even thinking about it or trying to make a record.”
Well now, the ‘complicated’ singer is all better and working hard on her music and her fans are currently waiting for her next album. Along with her professional life, Avril is also doing well in her personal life. Right now she is dating singer Mod Sun, 34. The couple started dating each other in February after they collaborated on his song “Flames” in January. They were also spotted having a double date with Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly last month.
