It’s been 20 years since Avril Lavigne’s debut album, “Let Go” hit the charts. So, what better way to mark the momentous occasion than being honoured with your very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The ceremony was a full-circle moment for the princess of pop-punk who told Variety that she had visited the famed boulevard on her first trip to Los Angeles when she was just 16 years old.

Recalling her first encounter during her speech, she unveiled a photo of her younger self beside one of the famous stars saying, “So, I’m 16 years old and I’m on my first trip to Hollywood, and of course, I had to visit the Hollywood Walk of Fame because it’s iconic.”

In the photo, she’s wearing a sweatshirt with the words “skateboarding is not a crime,” and in true Avril Lavigne style, she of course changed into the sweatshirt right then and there. Honestly, what an icon!!

“I can remember seeing these legendary names, and I never could have imagined mine would be here,” she continued. “This is so crazy. I am so grateful. This is probably one of the coolest days of my life.”

For fans of the singer, this has certainly been a long time coming. Beyond selling 40 million albums worldwide, she has notched eight GRAMMY® Award nominations in categories such as Best New Artist and Song of the Year twice for “Complicated” and “I’m with You.” In addition, she has received eight Juno Awards, including Artist of the Year. 

While earlier this year,  Avril kicked off the biggest and boldest chapter to date, making her debut for Travis Barker’s DTA Records with the release of her seventh studio album “Love Sux.”

Ana Martinez, Producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame revealed in a press release, “This isn’t Complicated, Avril Lavigne is very deserving of this Walk of Fame star and we are thrilled to be honouring her with this great honour.”

“Avril’s fans have been blowing up my phone asking when she will be getting her star. We are thrilled to say that the time is now!” she added.

The Canadian native celebrated her big day with fiancé Mod Sun, “Bois Lie” collaborator and tourmate Machine Gun Kelly, Love Sux producer John Feldmann, Good Charlotte’s Joel Madden, Ryan Cabrera, Jxdn and co-writer Lauren Christy.

Ending her speech by proclaiming her love for music making Avril said,” 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, bitches! Let’s go!”

Oh Avril, we are SO READY!!
