These photos of Avril Lavigne with fans are the most awkward thing you'll see today

If you can find anything more awkward than this, we’ll eat our hats.

YOU MAY BE under the completely acceptable impression that no one really likes Avril Lavigne’s music anymore.

But the Canadian punk-popster still has some loyal fans, and they’re willing to pay a lot of money to meet her. So there.

According to Noisey, Brazilian fans of Avril Lavigne were charged 800 Brazilian Reals (about €259) for a recent meet and greet with the popstar – that price did not include the actual concert ticket.

Here’s the catch: Fans were not allowed any physical contact with the singer. No hugs, no handshakes, no putting a friendly arm around her in the photos.

Essentially, they paid €250 to stand near Avril Lavigne.

The results are so awkward it almost hurts.
