Avril Lavigne Attends Event in Brazil After Video Controversy

Avril Lavigne hits the carpet while attending the opening of the new John John store on Oscar Freire Street on Tuesday (April 29) in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

The 29-year-old singer was mixed up in some controversy last week following the release of her music video for “Hello Kitty,” which some people called racist.

“RACIST??? LOLOLOL!!!” Avril wrote on Facebook in response to the controversy. “I love Japanese culture and I spend half of my time in Japan. I flew to Tokyo to shoot this video specifically for my Japanese fans, WITH my Japanese label, Japanese choreographers AND a Japanese director IN Japan.”
