In The Spotlight This Week: Avril Lavigne

Canadian singer/songwriter Avril Ramona Lavigne has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, making her one of the top-selling artists who release albums in America. Lavigne broke into the music industry with her debut album, Let Go, released in 2002. As of 2009, over 16 million copies were sold worldwide, more than 6 million of which were sold in the United States. Her second and third album, Under My Skin and The Best Damn Thing, reached number one on the Global charts. Lavigne has scored five number-one singles worldwide, including Complicated, Sk8er Boi, I'm With You, My Happy Ending and Girlfriend. Avril Lavigne married Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley in a Catholic ceremony attended by about 110 guests on July 15, 2006 at a private estate in Montecito, California. When asked if they were ready for kids the couple said "not right now but somewhere down the road."

It was announced on September 17, 2009, that Lavigne and Whibley split up and that divorce papers would soon follow. On October 9, 2009, Lavigne filed for divorce.

Avril is now working on her fourth studio album due for release early 2010.
