When fans paid 800 reais (about $360 U.S. dollars) to meet Avril Lavigne in Brazil, they found out there were some rules to follow: They could take a photo with the singer,with a strict No Touching Allowed policy — no high fives, no hugs, no take-backs. Avril, why’d you have to go and make things so complicated?

One Redditor posted some of the photos online and they are horribly, horribly awkward. Check them out over at Reddit (but proceed at your own risk).

In the meantime, please enjoy these Buzzfeed photos of Rihanna meet-and-greets, which look approximately 9000% more fun.
