Normally, Avril Lavigne starts spitting when she spots photogs - but earlier this week, the Canadian pop starlet couldn't resist the urge to converse!

True, most of the conversation centered around how much the paparazzi annoy Avril and her husband Deryck Whibley - but hey, we can take it!

Besides, we don't get many chances to see the happy couple this, well, happy. Heck, Avril even chitchatted with our photog in French for a minute!
