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.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
