Avril Lavigne Insists "I Do Touch My Fans" at Meet & Greets

FUSE TV - Avril Lavigne Insists "I Do Touch My Fans" at Meet & Greets

Remember those hilariously awkward photos of an Avril Lavigne meet-and-greet that went viral last month? According to reports, Brazilian fans paid $400 to stand somewhat near the singer and take a pic to rival Awkward Family Photos.

The pop-punk princess is insisting she does get close with her devoted subjects. Apparently, just not in certain countries.

"I do touch my fans," she told Canadian radio station KiSS 92.5 "My fans are very frisky, actually. In some countries where we've had security breaches, it's a little delicate because of things that have happened with stuff I probably shouldn't get into.
