Avril Lavigne received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame as she marks 20 years in the industry. The Canadian Pop-punk singer-songwriter had released her debut album Let Go in 2002, including popular songs like “Complicated,” “I’m With You,” and “Sk8er Boi.”
Lavigne reminisced the first time she came to LA and saw the Hollywood stars at the age of 16. The rebellious artist shared a picture of her wearing a hoodie that says “Skateboarding is a Crime.”
Avril gave a powerful speech inspiring younger generations to continue pursuing their dreams: “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 themself, ‘Oh my god, my name could be there one day, too.’ Because it can. What an amazing 20 years, and I can’t wait for the next 20.”
Lavigne was accompanied by her fiancé Mod Sun, “Bois Lie” partner in crime Machine Gun Kelly, John Feldmann, Joe Madden, Ryan Cabreram, Jxdn, and Lauren Christy.
