In an exclusive interview ahead of the release of her album Heaven and Hell this Friday, Ava said she wrote her single Who’s Laughing Now with the girls in mind.

She said: “You can’t really predict what school is going to be like for kids and for me, it was really hard and I didn’t want to go to school.

“There was a girl gang who really was just bullying me non-stop.

“I even got cornered in a bathroom. Someone put my head in a toilet.

“That was Middle School for me and I didn’t like it. And I didn’t want to go to school and at one point I didn’t go. I started doing home-schooling.”

Ava shot to fame overnight with her 2018 smash hit Sweet But Psycho but admitted it took a while to get used to superstardom.

She added: “I was at a UK airport when I first came to promote and Psycho was just on the radio so much and I came for the first time.

“It was funny because someone recognised me and I was so not used to it. I was just like, ‘Are you sure you’re talking to me.’

“They were like ‘Yep, are you..’ and I was like, ‘No’ and ran away.”

She’s quickly become one of the best-known women in pop but often sees women being treated differently to men. 

Ava admits “we have a long way to go” but is happy with everything she has done so far in her career, saying it was a choice. 

The popstar also finds it frustrating that she is often compared to Lady Gaga.

Ava said: “A lot of people compare me to her, and she’s incredible by the way, she’s an artist of a decade right so you can’t say anything bad about her. 

“I think a lot of people compare me to her because I have blonde hair and I make pop music, which is so weird. People shouldn’t compare women that much I mean why do people compare women, but I get it, it’s an easy thing to do but I see myself as myself so it’s weird, I gained a lot of inspiration growing up from a lot of pop idols and I feel like everyone is in me, everyone I listened to growing up.”
