Avril Lavigne Brings Her Star Power to Milan (PHOTOS)

By: Mike Hess / September 12, 2011

Italy just got a heaping dose of Canadian pop-punk crooner Avril Lavigne.

With her signature all-black on and a light-up star wand, Avril channeled her inner emo princess as she performed to thousands of fans in Milan, Italy on Sunday evening. As Lavigne cranked out her hits, hundreds of digital cameras and cell phones illuminated the air as fans tried to get a photo of the “What the Hell” songstress.

Sadly, Avril couldn’t enjoy the gorgeous fashion city of Milan for too long, as she’s zipping back to the U.S. for some fashion obligations. “Leaving Milan Italy, awesome show last night! Flying to NYC for my “Abbey Dawn” fashion show and fly right back to Europe for Amsterdam show,” she Tweeted on Monday morning. Even there, she won’t be able to kick back and take in the Big Apple, as she followed up saying “Ill be in NYC for only 6 hours -enough to get dressed in my Abbey Dawn outfit and hit the runway- crazy travel, but soooo worth it :)”
