The 2013 MuchMusic Video Awards were a great night for Avril Lavigne.

After her awkward red carpet encounter, her performance of “Here’s To Never Growing Up,” and her victory in the International Video of the Year by a Canadian category, the singer stopped by the MMVA media room to discuss new music with Yahoo! Canada Music.

Asked about the track “Hello Kitty,” which will appear on her forthcoming album due out this September, Lavigne said, “It has an electronic vibe, which is very different for me and it’s the first time I’ve experimented in that whole world.”

She continued, “I love Hello Kitty. I have an obsession so I wrote a song called ‘Hello Kitty.’ It’s really fun [and] it’s about a slumber party and loving the kitty.”

Along with chatting about her latest record, the soon-to-be Mrs. Kroeger also filled the media in on the challenges of planning her upcoming wedding.

“It’s been a lot of fun,” she told reporters. “There’s always lots going on and I’m really busy releasing new music and promoting this album and also talking about my wedding a lot … I’m multi-tasking but it’s very exciting. I’m very excited about it. I can’t really say too much. I’m trying to say as much as I can without saying too much.”

By now, Lavigne is a veteran of the MMVAs and shared with the press one instance where she thanked MuchMusic at an inappropriate time during the 2002 MTV Video Music Awards after winning Best New Artist in a Video for “Complicated.”

“I remember when I was 17, on the first album, winning one of my first awards, which was a Moonman for the MTV Awards,” she told the media. “I was so young I had no idea even what I was doing except I was winning an award and I remember walking onstage at the MTV Awards and saying, ‘Thank you, MTV, and thank you, MuchMusic!’ It’s kind of funny [because] you’re not really suppose to do that but being from Canada, [it was] very meaningful to me.”
