Viewers will be treated to an exclusive sneak peek at Avril's new music video, "What the Hell," from her upcoming album Goodbye Lullaby, which Rolling Stone proclaims "is easily some of Avril's catchiest yet, with piping garage-rock organs, a pogoing, do-the-frug beat and a soaring singalong chorus," during the premiere of "Mean Girls 2." The song was released last week as a digital single and immediately jumped to No. 2 on iTunes. After the movie's airing on Sunday night, viewers will then be able to log onto www.abcfamily.com to see the full length video. The music video was directed by Marcus Raboy and was shot both in 2D and in 3D. Goodbye Lullaby will be in stores March 8, 2011. More information on Avril Lavigne and her new album can be found at http://www.rcamusicgrouppress.com/index.php?artist=Avril_Lavigne.

"Mean Girls 2" stars Meaghan Martin ("10 Things I Hate About You," "Camp Rock 1 & 2"), Maiara Walsh ("Desperate Housewives"), Jennifer Stone ("Wizards of Waverly Place"), Nicole Gale Anderson ("Make It or Break It""), Claire Holt ("H20: Just Add Water") and Diego Boneta ("Pretty Little Liars") in a classic high school story about good versus plastic. When new girl Jo (Martin) arrives at North Shore High School, her main goal is to skate under the radar to survive her senior year and definitely not get involved in any of the typical high school trappings. But her plan goes awry quickly when she meets Abby (Stone), a girl stuck at the low end of the high school food chain and favorite target of "The Plastics" (Walsh, Holt and Anderson). After defending Abby against the queen bee of the school and lead Plastic, Mandi (Walsh), Jo is dragged into the very same girl drama she was hoping to avoid. Tim Meadows returns as the school's principal, Mr. Duvall.
