Over the weekend, a series of awkward-looking pictures of Avril meeting her fans went viral. The fans in the pictures had been told they couldn't touch the singer. She's now posted this set on her Twitter and Instagram accounts.
She also posted pictures of herself with youth and staff from the Special Olympics, the world's largest sports foundation for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.
She was meeting them on behalf of the foundation for children with illness and disability she set up in 2010.
And one of her fans says that she was in fact hugged by Avril, against security's wishes.
