Avril Lavigne Honoured With Star On Hollywood Walk of Fame
Avril Lavigne has been honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles.
During the ceremony on Wednesday 31 August, Lavigne was presented with the 2,731st star in front of a star-studded crowd, which included her fiancé Mod Sun, Goldfinger frontman John Feldmann, Complicated co-writer Lauren Christy, and regular collaborator Machine Gun Kelly.
In her speech, Avril thanked all the guests for attending and declared herself “proud and honoured” to receive the recognition. “Today, I love making music more than ever. I feel so inspired. And I hope that the next 16-year-old from their small town who comes to Hollywood one day, full of hopes and dreams, sees this star and thinks to themselves, ‘Oh my God, my name could be there one day, too,'” she said. “Because it can… What an amazing 20 years, and I can’t wait for the next 20, b**ches! Let’s go!”
Avril also recalled her first visit to the Hollywood Walk of Fame when she was 16. She also showed attendees a photo that she took alongside Tom Cruise’s star at the time. “I’m 16 years old and I’m on my first trip to Hollywood, and of course, I had to visit the Hollywood Walk of Fame because it’s iconic,” Lavigne continued. “I can remember seeing these legendary names, and I never could have imagined mine would be here. This is so crazy. I am so grateful. This is probably one of the coolest days of my life.”
Avril later posted a photograph of herself with her star on her Instagram account, writing, “Look Mom. I got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.” Last week Avril released an acoustic version of Bois Lie, her collaboration with Machine Gun Kelly. The original version of the song featured on her 2021 album, Love Sux.
