She may not dress the part, but punk princess Avril Lavigne is really an old-fashioned girl – when it comes to relationships.
Does beau, Brody Jenner fit that bill? Lavigne tells the November issue of Maxim, on sale Oct. 12, “I like a classy man, a gentleman who opens the door and gives flowers and always puts the lady first. I’m a little old-fashioned like that.”
The singer, 26, who recently divorced Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley, 30, is ready to release a new album, which she admits is inspired by her personal life but, “is the first that is not boy bashing.”
