The group barbecued well into the evening, staying long after the sun went down.

There seemed to be no sign of her boyfriend Mod Sun. 

The Grammy nominee’s day off came just a month after she gave an in-depth interview about her 20-year-long career.

In her interview with The Forty-Five, Lavigne, who’s currently on her seventh album, discussed how she’s helped influence the new generation of female rockers.

’20 years is crazy. It’s hard to believe. It’s been a lot. It’s been a big career,’ she said.

The singer added, ‘I’m excited to be 20 years in and still rocking.’

She also revealed that she feels very ‘lucky’ to be cited as a musical influence by younger artists like Olivia Rodrigo.

‘I feel very lucky that so many of these younger artists have mentioned me as someone that they were inspired by,’ she said.

She has recently passed the pop punk torch to Rodrigo by presenting the talented 18-year-old music star with the coveted Songwriter Of The Year Award at Variety’s 2021 Music Hitmakers Brunch in early December.

Avril praised the young music sensation saying, ‘She’s a total sweetheart and she’s such a great songwriter. Her music has really resonated with a lot of younger and older audiences. It’s really exciting because she’s so young and she gets to evolve so much from here, too.’
