    I think she's saying that it's okay/good to be different.

    Black star, black star
    Forever you will be
    A shining star, shining star
    Be whatever you can be
    A rockstar, rockstar

    Basically the song is saying that it's okay if people say you're weird or different, because it's good to be different and you're special [a shining star, shining star]

    To me, the song means that black stars aren't really seen, like of a star was black in the night sky. That black star in the sky is different then the white ones, and it's okay.

    A black star can't be seen in the black sky. So even if a person is not seen or noticed by everyone and just fades in doesn't mean that they aren't a "shining star" they can be whatever they want regardless of what other people think.

    I think it means it’s okay to be different. Like be a black star instead of a white star: different.

    I think this song is about her ex and she's saying that he will always be special to her.

    I think it means someone is a star who doesnt get noticed cos in the night the sky is black so black stars cant be seen:)

    I think the song is written to her recently Ex-Husband. It sets the tone of the CD.

    Black star is something you don't see. She wants to distance herself.
    A shining star suggest he will always have a place in her life.

    He is a rocker just like her, a "Rock Star"

    She's a black star herself. Not a white one like everyone would expect but a black one. She'll never be like all those girls nowadays, all those new age pop "singers"; Britney Spears, Kesha or Rihanna. She will always be Avril. She's different
