Avril Lavigne Saved Him

The singer shared that Lavigne became his “protection,” which was what inspired the song “Shelter,” on which she was also featured. He explained that she saved him from the “idea of self-destruction” and annihilated the button he resorts to for “self-sabotage.”
Mod Sun went on to add that his idea of success has changed and that he now defines it as “growing old and starting a family,” saying he looks forward to being a dad and sharing wonderful experiences with his children.

He shared his plans to give her a befitting and memorable wedding, calling her a “motherf**king princess.”
According to E! News, Mod Sun also revealed he’ll be celebrating his 4th-year sobriety. The incredible feat is all thanks to his ability to channel his addiction to drugs into healthy practices, like working out.
“An addict, in a lot of ways, has some of the best self-discipline in the world,” he shared. “It’s been doing these things that make me feel accomplished. One of those things happens to be working out, and whether I wrote a song that day or I created a piece of art that allows me to fall asleep at night and feel good about myself.”
