We knew this was coming she was an emo most of her life

the originals says:

i'm sorry, though I know this must be terrible, how about having someone talk about it who DOESN'T have all the money in the world???  I'd like to hear about this disease from someone who's low income.  she has the money to treat this with the BEST.  let's hear from someone who doesn't.  it's a shame that this' news because a celebrity has it.  sorry if I offend.  BTW, my co-worker has this, and she lives paycheck to paycheck.  give HER the interview!!!

Jen Youngblood says:

isn't Lyme disease permanent. ….

R Hamlet says:

I guess ABC doesn't know what a pandemic is. The description is dumb and doesn't belong on this video. And what does fast food GMOs have to do with healthy eating? Yeah, why would I trust ABC, a company that profits from all this unhealthy food being advertised?

I hope shes fine by now and back to normal. Too bad ABC just uses the story for profit like usual.

Javier Ortega says:

That is sooooo not the real Avril Lavigne….

Anna Carter says:

I've experienced this. Doctors not taking their patients and their symptoms seriously. Too many people have to be their own advocate and their own doctor when that's what their physicians should be

Charlie D says:

Jesus she seemed so distraught.. So sad

Amma Oneill says:

Mary Rb says:

David Freeman says:

Avril Lavigne = Levine = Levi/Levy. So it looks like Avril , like 80% of over-promoted , over-produced pop stars is jewish.
