As far as conspiracy theories go, this one is an absolute highlight. Get ready. Avril Lavigne died and was replaced by an actress double. The theory says that Avril killed herself after the loss of her grandmother (which is dark) in the mid 2000’s and everything since then has been the work of an elaborate ruse by her recording company. There’s tonnes of ‘evidence’, the most compelling being that between ‘Let Go’ and Avril’s third album ‘The Best Damn Thing’ her sound kind of… changed. Clearly ‘Girlfriend’ was a lyrical masterpiece and none of us are denying that, but it showed us a very different side to the pop-punk songstress so rather than consider that maybe she was just making less good music, the internet decided she must have died.
Honestly, what else could explain this?
Other evidence goes to hilariously random levels, comparing photos of her freckles where they seem to move around or have disappeared completely. Once she was even papped with the name ‘Melissa’ written on her hand… the real name of her actress double? No. Almost definitely not. Apparently her nose looks different too which is so weird because I’ve never heard of a celebrity suddenly having their nose look different after a few weeks of being out of the spotlight. What could have possible happened to cause this?

AVRIL LAVIGNE IS DEAD AND HAS BEEN REPLACED BY A DOPPELGANGER pic.twitter.com/xuPkFtrmFx— Conspiracy Theories (@fatconspiracy) August 14, 2016
Her teeth got better too. Beyond madness. Between you and me, I’m choosing to believe that New Avril is an actress because there’s no way Pop Punk Queen of my life ‘Anything but Ordinary’ era Avril Lavigne would have made that Hello Kitty song. This helps me sleep better at night. We all have our baggage.
