Avril Lavigne's siblings used to tease her for singing

Avril Lavigne has revealed that becoming a singer wasn't always the most straightforward career choice as her siblings used to mock her vocal talents. 

Her constant singing within her family home would irritate her brother and sister, who in turn would laugh at her facial expressions as she sang. She told Contact Music:

"My brother used to knock on the wall because I used to sing myself to sleep and he thought it was really annoying. My bother and sister used to make fun of me and say when I sang, my nostrils would flare."

Despite the typical sibling teasing, Lavigne admitted that her mother always thought she'd make it as a performer:

"My mom said when I was two I came back from church singing 'Jesus Loves Me' and she said that she knew I was going to be a singer then, she called me her little song bird, so yeah, I always wanted to be a singer."

The 'What The Hell' star was recently in London to present an award at the BRITs and to host a fan event, and you can watch part of her UK diary below:
