After months of staying out of the spotlight, pop star Avril Lavigne has reappeared. She gave an exclusive interview to People magazine to let everyone know she’s okay. Her fans were worried because she hasn’t taken to social media, and the last time she did, she wrote this cryptic message in December 2014: “I feel bad because I haven’t been able to say anything to the fans to let them [know] why I’ve been absent. I’m not feeling well. I’m having some health issues. So please keep me in your prayers.” Some people thought that was code for rehab.
Turns out it was Lyme disease. Lavigne said: “There were definitely times I couldn’t shower for a full week because I could barely stand. It felt like having all your life sucked out of you. She says she now feels 80 percent better, and will release a new song called “Fly” later this month. She must have thought about calling it “Shower.”
