Lavigne made a point of expressing that she did not have a fixed musical direction at the start of her project, which came together naturally.

'I literally went in the studio and we just started writing a ton of songs and I didn't have a plan, and then the album came together,' she stated.

She added that 'because it was so organic and fun, I feel like that energy really comes across in the body of work.'

The performer, whose love life has constantly been in the spotlight, remarked that her personal experiences would be at the forefront of her new record.

'There's a lot of reflecting upon different relationships that I have gone through and where I'm at,' she said.

Lavigne did make a point of mentioning that she was feeling fine while recording the album and that she was happy to take her past in stride.

'Even though there's songs about past love experiences that didn't work out, I'm in such a good place in my life that it's still just fun and feisty and light. I'm kind of poking fun at myself that I've gone through a lot in love,' she said.

The singer then noted that she was interested in creating a record that showcased who she currently was as a person.

'I wanted to keep it light and playful, which is more of a reflection of where I am today. I am comfortable and happy with who I am today, but I still go through the same struggles and I want people to feel empowered,' she stated.

Lavigne later discussed Love Sux's overall message in depth during the sit-down.

She remarked: 'My message is know who you are and trust who you are. A lot of these songs are about having the strength to walk away if someone doesn't see that.'

Lavigne also spoke about working with her collaborators and noted that there was a natural feeling in the studio.

'We all complemented each other. In a weird way, I felt like I was back in high school hanging out with the type of people I grew up with, and it was just effortless,' she said.
