If fans at Avril Lavigne's meet and greet in Brazil were expecting a hug or handshake from the singer, they were out of luck.

According to Brazilian news site Cifra Club, the meet and greet cost Lavigne's admirers 800 Brazilian reais, or about $360 U.S. dollars. When fans arrived, they were told by security that they could not have any physical contact with the "Hello Kitty" singer.

These awkward photos uploaded by Reddit user streeter5000 make Lavigne's personal space request painfully apparent:
