Avril Lavigne and her boyfriend, Brody Jenner, sustained several cuts and bruises following a brawl at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood over the weekend. Brody was photographed with a large gash on his forehead, said to be from a smashed bottle as he attempted to break up a fight between Lavigne and another woman.

Lavigne denied that she instigated the conflict earlier today on Twitter. "I don't fight. I don't believe in it," she wrote. "To clear things up I got attacked by 5 people last night out of nowhere. Not cool. My face is fucked." In another tweet, Lavigne claimed that she had a "black eye, bloody nose, hair ripped out, scratches, bruises and cuts," and insisted that "violence is NEVER the answer."

As of yet, no details have emerged regarding the nature of the fight, or whether Lavigne and Brenner intend to press charges against their attackers.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
