Avril Lavigne has revealed she moved away from Los Angeles because she was finding it hard not to get caught up in her celebrity.
The Here's To Never Growing Up singer - who is set to marry Nickelback rocker and fellow Canadian Chad Kroeger later this year - told the New York Post she wants to make sure she stays grounded.
Avril said: "It's very rare that I meet people in the industry that are down to earth. Normal people [can] get really caught up in their celebrity and who they are as a star.
"For me I've always made sure to turn it on when I need it to turn on and turn it off when I need it to turn off. I am a normal human being. I like to be home and with my family. I spent 10 years living in Los Angeles and I moved away from LA now to make sure I don't get too caught up."
The 28-year-old singer has sparked pregnancy rumours again after she attended a Nylon magazine party to celebrate her being on the cover of the latest issue wearing a loose-fitting leather top that skimmed her tummy.
Earlier this month Avril, who got together with 38-year-old Chad last year, was pictured in London wearing a billowing animal-print dress that set of rumours she might be expecting.
Avril, who split from her first husband Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley in 2009, revealed she and Chad had bonded over all the things they shared in common.
She told Page Six: "We met in the studio. We started dating July 1 - Canada Day. He proposed in the studio a month later after we were dating.
"We bonded through work, music and song writing. We were buddies and it blossomed naturally into a relationship."
