Lavigne loving married life

Avril Lavigne is still swooning over new husband Chad Kroeger.

The Complicated singer performed at the iHeart Radio Music Festival in Las Vegas Saturday and was swooning over the singer and their July nuptials at the event.

Avril told E! News newlywed life is going "really, really well" although she wishes they didn't have to be on the road so much for work.

"I love it and we are really happy. He travels a lot and I travel a lot so we just try our best to be together and support each other," she said.

The alternative rocker was meanwhile thrilled to be at the Sin City event, where a string of stars performed Friday and Saturday.

Watching some of her favourite acts take the stage was a treat, and Avril revealed she also met an unexpected fan of her own.

"The best part was I was watching Katy Perry last night and Drake was there watching. He was so excited to meet me. He said, 'I listened to you growing up.' And I go, 'Oh my god! How old are you?' He goes, 'Twenty six. You hold a very special place in my heart,'" she laughed.

Avril took the stage after Miley Cyrus, revealing the women share music managers. The 28-year-old was impressed by the way Miley belted out her hits, amid reports the Wrecking Ball hitmaker got emotional on stage.

"She is doing her thing right now and she is kicking a*s, so good for her," she said.

Avril is looking forward to taking a break later this month. The singer, who turns 29 on September 27, will enjoy the special day with her new husband when he returns from a gig in Brazil.

"My husband is in South America for the Rock in Rio [festival] with Nickelback and is flying back to L.A. to meet me for my birthday," she said.

"He gets in the morning of my birthday. We are going to be together. That's all I want for my birthday, I am really excited!"
