The Grammy nominated single “Complicated” is about one of Avril Lavigne’s strong beliefs about life- you should be yourself all the time. The song has influenced many teenagers and kids to be true to your selves. Many of us are not true to ourselves because we doubt if the society will accept us. This was not written about anyone in particular, according to Lavigne. She says, "It's basically about life, people being fake, and relationships." In this song Avril tells the listener to present themselves the way they are but in an acceptable way.
