"Complicated" was not written about anyone in particular. It's basically about life, people being fake, and relationships." - Avril Lavigne
"Avril came over and we played her some stuff in the Faith Hill vein and she said, 'I don't wanna do that, I wanna rock!' We wrote 'Complicated' that day. When Avril Lavigne and her manager heard the song, they responded, "This is it!. She sang it in like two takes and we had the version you heard on the radio the next day." - Scott Spock (producer)
"It's like, if I'm alone with a guy, you can look into his eyes and everything is great and he's giving you all the attention you need, and then when they go off with their friends they act all, like, different." - Avril Lavigne
