Nearly a year after re-emerging from a five-year hiatus with a song that was hailed as a “worship song,” pop-rocker Avril Lavigne now has a new single called “I Fell in Love With the Devil” that is causing a stir among some of her supporters.
The pop star’s gothic-styled promotional images have many slamming her choice of song title and photos, claiming she’s glorying evil.
“I fell in love with the devil/And now I’m in trouble/I fell in love with the devil/I’m underneath his spell (ah)/Someone send me an angel/To lend me a halo/I fell in love with the devil/Please, save me from this hell,” read the lyrics of the chorus.
In a recent interview with German newspaper Aargauer Zeitung, Lavigne explained that the song is really about a real-life toxic relationship she was in while battling Lyme disease.
“It was fierce and I was really scared. I was still weakened and already so vulnerable and fearful and insecure at the time. Then he came. That was what they call a ‘toxic relationship,’ and the only good thing is that it did not take long. I’m out of there fast, literally stormed. And as so often with me, a song evolved from the experience,” she told the outlet in February.
