Avril Lavigne has revealed she moved away from Los Angeles because she was finding it hard not to get caught up in her celebrity.
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.
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."
