流行龐克女神艾薇兒回歸


  In 2014, Lavigne was diagnosed with Lyme disease, a bacterial infection caused by a tick bite. During the worst stages of the illness, Lavigne was too weak to even get out of bed. The disease kept her out of the spotlight for almost four years. Her experience inspired her to raise awareness of Lyme disease via The Avril Lavigne Foundation. Lavigne returned in 2019 with her sixth album, Head Above Water. The singer described the album as an “emotional journey” following her recovery.

在 2014 年,艾薇兒被診斷患有萊姆病,一種由蜱叮咬引起的細菌感染。在患病最嚴重的時期,她甚至虛弱到無法下床。此疾病使她淡出聚光燈將近四年。她的經歷激勵了她透過艾薇兒基金會提高大眾對於萊姆病的認識。2019 年,艾薇兒帶著她的第六張專輯《浴火重生》回歸。她將這張專輯描述為她康復後的一趟「情感之旅」。
