Taylor Swift is known for her close relationship with her fans, even going as far as chatting with them on Tumblr and sending them care packages. But in 2015, Swift offended Avril Lavigne by liking a post that compared how they interacted with fans. Swift loved hugging hers, but Lavigne? Not so much.
Still, that doesn’t mean that Lavigne doesn’t appreciate her fanbase. Upon getting wind of Swift liking said post, the “Complicated” singer took to Twitter to provide an explanation. “Comparison is judging and judging a person does not define who they are it defines who you are. We all Love our fans,” she wrote. Lavigne followed it up with a more cheerful tweet, “So let’s keep it all about the love and stay positive.”
Swift, then, acted rather swiftly and did damage control. Not long after, she had Lavigne do a surprise appearance at one of her tour stops, and together, they performed “Complicated.” That, my friends, is how you uncomplicate a feud.
