Brazilians charged £400 to stand quite near Avril Lavigne

Ah, Avril Lavigne. A one-woman Hays Code in action.

She did a meet and greet in Brazil, charging £400 a photo.

That's quite a lot of money right there. But the money only bought you access to be nearby.

Apparently there was a strict no-touching rule. Although, if Lavigne touched you, that would be okay. She wasn't going to touch you.

I can kind-of see why you might not want strangers hugging you, smelling of stranger, and putting their stranger skin onto you skin.

But presumably the best way to avoid that happening is by not opening a booth where you charge £400 for people to meet you.

In some of the pictures, she's barely even in the frame.
