Congratulations to Avril Lavigne, which now has the 2,731. star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Lavigne’s career was celebrated with a special star unveiling ceremony in Hollywood on Wednesday (August 31).
Machine Gun Kelly and producer/musician John Feldman were among those who spoke as she honored the singer, and members of her extended musical family and friends were also in attendance, including Jxdn, Joel Madden, Jagwar Twin and her fiance Towards Sun.
“I remember seeing these legendary names and I could never have imagined that mine would be here,” the singer said. “This is probably the coolest day of my life.”
“Avril Lavigne, you are the amalgamation of our generation’s childhood,” Machine Gun Kelly stated during his speech about Lavigne. “All the times I got my heart broken, your music was in my headphones. You were an inspiration to a generation of kids like myself who wore baggy jeans and skated and didn’t fit into MTV’s version of what girls wanted .”
Lavigne first burst onto the music scene in 2002 with her let it go album with the singles “Complicated” and “Sk8r Boi.” Earlier this year, she released her seventh studio album, Love Suxwhich was produced by Feldmann, Mod Sun and Travis Barker and saw a return to the pop-punk roots of her early records.
After the ceremony, a jubilant Lavigne tweeted photos to her fans on Twitter, including one specific fan when she said, “Look mom, I got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.” See that tweet as well as a full gallery of photos from the ceremony below.
