Canadian singer: Avril Lavigne lounges on her new Hollywood star

Canadian singer Avril Lavigne ("Complicated", "Girlfriend") fell to the ground in Hollywood on Wednesday (local time) to thunderous applause from fans.

The 37-year-old lolled in the flashbulbs of photographers on her newly unveiled star plaque on Hollywood's "Walk of Fame". When she was 16, she visited the "Walk of Fame" on her first trip to Los Angeles, the singer said. She had just dropped out of high school. She never imagined being immortalized in Hollywood. It was probably one of the "coolest" days of her life.

Lavigne stormed the charts as a teenager

Lavigne brought a photo from her first Walk of Fame visit and donned a hoodie she wore when she was 16. She proudly referenced the hoodie that read "Skateboarding Is Not At Crime." At the time, that suited the image of the untamed skater punk girl, who caused a sensation with songs like "Sk8er Boi".

Lavigne left her small-town Canadian home as a teenager to make music first in New York and then in Los Angeles. In 2002, the then 18-year-old conquered the charts with her debut album "Let Go" and the single "Complicated". She has released seven studio albums to date, including this year's Love Sux. According to the "Walk of Fame" operator, she has sold almost 50 million albums.

Compliments from the guest speaker

As a guest speaker, rapper Machine Gun Kelly (32) enthused that Lavigne had inspired him and a whole generation of young people with her rebellious songs. He is a big fan of her music and her "strong" voice. "Your songs will last long into our lifetimes," the rapper said.

The singer and songwriter temporarily withdrew from the public eye in 2014 because of severe Lyme disease. In 2019 she returned with the album "Head Above Water".

In April she announced her engagement to US rapper and punk rocker Mod Sun (35). She met the musician, whose real name is Dylan Smith, in 2021 while recording songs together. Lavigne has had two marriages. She was married to Canadian musician Deryck Whibley from 2006 to 2010. In 2015, after two years of marriage, she separated from Nickelback singer Chad Kroeger.
