Avril Lavigne Honoured With a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

It’s Avril Lavigne Day in Hollywood!

The Grammy Award-winning superstar who signed her first recording contract at just 16, has been honoured with her very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

“Ok 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,” the Sk8er Boi singer said, sharing a photo of the moment during her speech.

“I can remember seeing these legendary names and I never could’ve imagined that mine would be here. This is probably one of the coolest days of my life.”

She goes on to thank all those who helped her along the way behind the scenes, including her family: “I didn’t just get here alone. It took sacrifice from my family to allow me to chase my dreams.”


Rapper Machine Gun Kelly and singer John Feldmann attended the ceremony and shared words about how Avril encouraged a generation of kids to be themselves.

Avril ended her speech by urging anyone with a dream to pursue it:

“Today, I love making music more than ever. 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 themselves, ‘oh my god, my name could be there one day too,’ because it can. Follow your dreams, live your passion, express yourself, be real, work hard, keep your head up, believe in yourself.”

Avril’s star is the 2,731st on the famous boulevard.
