Lavigne wants an old-fashioned man

Avril Lavigne

Avril Lavigne has old-fashioned values when it comes to her taste in men.

The singer, 26, who called it quits with Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley after three years of marriage, posed in a series of racy shots for mens' magazine Maxim.

She told the November edition of the US mag: "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 rocker said of growing up: "I'm older and more comfortable with my femininity. The first time (she did a Maxim shoot) I was about 19 and was very nervous. I was more of a tomboy, I guess."

The singer is ready to release a new album, which she has been working on for two-and-a-half years, which she says "is the first that is not boy bashing".

It's difficult to deal with a highly competitive colleague. Every time you submit work, they try to find ways to outperform you. Although you have no interest in pitting your talent against theirs, this other person thinks very differently. Ignoring them won't be possible.

Irrational people are often thrown off balance when their behaviour is addressed in a direct manner.More
