Avril Lavigne says she offered her help to a fellow Canadian who also has Lyme disease: Justin Bieber.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the “Sk8er Boi” singer, 35, revealed she reached out to the “Sorry” singer, 26, after he announced his diagnosis with the illness earlier this year.
“I just reached out like, ‘Yo, here for you if you need any advice. I can share my knowledge with you,’ ” Lavigne told the outlet. “He was appreciative of that, but I think it seems like he is doing well. He put out new music and he had a tour, also.”
She continued, “He is also a warrior overcoming Lyme and that was the whole inspiration behind my song, ‘Warrior.’ ‘Warrior’ and ‘Head Above Water’ were the two first songs I wrote for this album because I was freshly coming out of fighting Lyme disease, so naturally that was what was on my heart. I love that I get to bring this out now and have it have a whole new meaning.”
Lavigne has been vocal about her life-threatening battle with Lyme disease. The illness, which she says she contracted from a tick, causes extreme fatigue and joint pain, leaving the singer bedridden for months.
In an interview with USA TODAY in February 2019, she recalled one particular night during that time – lying in bed with her mom, feeling weak and convinced she was dying – that she was inspired to write “Head Above Water.”
“Music has been more healing than ever for me,” Lavigne said at the time. “I was at a point where I wasn’t sure whether I’d be working or even doing music again, and then I started writing songs from my bedroom. … It was cool for me to see because it showed me that music is such a big part of who I am without even thinking about it or trying to make a record.”
Lavigne, Bieber and more of Canada’s most notable musicians teamed up recently to sing Bill Withers’ “Lean on Me” in order to boost morale and raise funds for coronavirus relief. The artists sang parts from home in a “We Are the World”-style conglomerate.
