Apparently singer Avril Lavigne is not wild about fans and/or strangers groping her. Last April, the punk girl grown up hosted a meet and greet with some fans – but refused to let any of them touch her at all. As in, there was a strict hands-off policy. Many of her fans were displeased with this, as they had paid money for the privilege of meeting her. And by meeting her, methinks they wanted a hug at minimum.
Anywho- Lavigne seems to be more affectionate these days:
Lavigne was opening for the Backstreet Boys at the Forum in Los Angeles … where she hosted another meet and greet. For this one, fans forked over $200 for the chance to meet Avril and take a photo with her … as well as get a pre-signed 8×10 pic and a few other trinkets.
I can see both sides of this. I mean – if you’re paying $200 just to meet the girl- you don’t want to be short-changed. That said- I don’t want to be hugged or touched by every person walking down the street. Price of fame, but if you are afraid of cooties- well?
Incidentally, the ever reputable and reliable Star Magazine has Lavigne and her new husband, Chad Kroeger, splitting up:
“Avril Lavigne is having major issues with her husband of less than one year, Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger. The couple, who famously have a strict set of marital rules that include no drinking or clubbing when they’re apart, have been fighting more than ever.
“When they first got together, Avril wore the pants,” reveals a close friend. “But Chad has reverted back to his old ways and doesn’t check in with her like he used to.”
So… there’s that.
