    Avril Lavigne Posted Some Less Awkward Photos Of Her Brazil Meet And Greet

    Ok, it's certainly not a Rihanna meet and greet, but these look a little happier.

    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.

    Thank you so much Brazil!! So nice meeting all of you ❤️
