Avril Lavigne Doesn’t Want To Be Compared To Taylor Swift

There's no "Bad Blood" between Avril Lavigne and Taylor Swift, but that doesn't mean the former wants to be compared to the latter. Would anyone, really? Lavigne has spoken out against a Tumblr post that compares how Swift, Lavigne, and other musicians interact with their fans. Swift is pictured cuddling and gleefully taking selfies with her devotees, while Lavigne is among those stars seen awkwardly posing at meet-and-greets. Kanye West, Britney Spears, and Katy Perry also get accused of being distant. Swift reportedly liked the Tumblr post, but Lavigne's fans felt rebuffed and defensive about its depiction of their top gal. The reaction prompted the "Girlfriend" singer to speak up and defend herself against the charge of not showing her fans an equal amount of love. Lavigne shared photos of herself getting up close and personal with her crew, too.
Wise words, Avril. Way to defuse a potential Twitter beef. We've had way too many of those lately. (Just Jared) OPENER IMAGE: Top Photo Corporation/Rex/REX USA.
