Avril Lavigne is addressing a conspiracy theory about herself and she did it on a brand new episode of 'Call Her Daddy' podcast (which is the greatest POD ever, only behind Watch What Crappens)...

In a new episode of Call Her Daddy, the singer addressed the Internet theory that claims she was replaced by a doppelganger named "Melissa" after dying in the 2000s.

After Alex Cooper asked Lavigne what the craziest rumor is that she's heard about herself, Lavigne replied that she knew exactly the one she was referencing.

"I know what you're talking about," she said — referring to the rumor that surfaced on internet forums in the early 2000s claiming the Canadian pop-punk star had died in 2003 after her debut album Let Go was released and was subsequently replace with a doppelgänger named Melissa. "I mean, it's just funny to me. Like, on one end, everyone's like, 'You look the exact same. You haven't aged a day.' But then other people are like, there's a conspiracy theory that I'm not me."
"Honestly, it's not that bad. It could be worse, right?" she admitted with a laugh. "I feel like I got a good one. I don't feel like it's negative. It's nothing creepy."
Lavigne added: "Obviously I am me, it's so dumb."
However, Avril was quick to point out that body double rumors aren't uncommon when it comes to musicians.
"I think that they've done that with other artists," Lavigne said. "I'm not the only one. I think, like, other people have that."
