Growing up is complicated for Avril Lavigne, 19, who releases Under My Skin this week, a follow-up to her hit 2002 debut CD, Let Go.
Your new single, Don't Tell Me, stumps for sexual abstinence. Is that something you believe in?
I wrote that when I was 17, and I was going through the phase in high school where every guy has ulterior motives. I don't think I would have written it now. I thought it was a good message, for girls to be strong.
Have you gone back and listened to your first album recently?
