Avril Lavigne went full on goth in the music video for Head Above Water's latest single "I Fell In Love With The Devil".

Just last week, fans and critics blasted Avril for the choice of imagery she used to promote the arrival of the track's music video. Now, the singer has finally broken her silence and explained the true meaning behind the song: it's about toxic relationships. In a lengthy Instagram post, she wrote: "I wrote I Fell In Love With The Devil as a constant reminder to myself that some of the darkest people in this world can be disguised as angels."

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

I wrote I Fell In Love With The Devil as a constant reminder to myself that some of the darkest people in this world can be disguised as angels. It will continue to remind me of my worth and what I deserve as a woman. Sometimes it’s not easy to walk away. But I am so sick of the pain and heartache, and I know what I deserve. Please allow my song to be your reminder to not let someone else’s demons take you down. I am now going to break this fucking cycle, bury all the toxic relationships and things people have done to me in the past, PRESENT & future ...⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ I will bury the constant heartache and trauma, close the casket and never look back. ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ RIP⁣⁣⁣, Avril

The music video sees the pop star dressed in different sets of gowns as she's wandering alone in a graveyard inside the middle of a forest. Avril then meets the "Devil" and falls in love with him but she ultimately runs away from him. Check out "I Fell In Love With The Devil" here:
