Avril Lavigne is going to turn her 2002 song "Sk8er Boi" into a film.
In a recent interview, she said that the song’s story about a “missed opportunity at love” will be explored in a movie.
Avril was addressing the track’s upcoming 20th anniversary.She said, “Recently with it being almost the 20th anniversary, a lot of people have been asking me to play this song on TV shows, so it keeps getting brought back up and people will always reference it to me. And so, I’m actually going to turn this song into a film and take it to the next level.”
Avril also said, “You know what it was like in high school, you have all the different groups and cliques, and there’s like skaters, preps and jocks. It’s kind of like a missed opportunity at love. The skater boy is in love with the preppy girl and she’s too cool for him but then five years from now she’s feeding the baby and she’s all alone and she wishes she would have followed her heart and not tried to live up to society’s expectations.”
