Avril Lavigne was set to call the New Year’s Eve countdown at Prive when, much to her chagrin, ‘Lil Jon stole the show and did his own countdown with his own mic. Avril was said to be clutching Deryck Whibley on the verge of tears. Page Six says,
The pop princess was said to be “visibly upset” and clung to her hubby Deryck Whibley, crying “I wanted to do the countdown!” Only when servers brought out Dom Perignon did she calm down. Her reps could not be reached.
Although Avril couldn’t be reached for comment, ‘Lil Jon could. When I asked ‘Lil Jon about the incident, he replied, “YEEeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaah! Whaaaat?! Oooook!” Four seconds of awkward silence later, I started slowly backing away.
Here’s Avril at some other party.
