The birthday honor came a month after the star was overcome with emotion when she received a Walk of Fame star in Hollywood.

Avril's fiance Mod Sun was there cheering her on, and posed for pictures with the 37-year-old who wore a punk red plaid suit with a black leather harness, before she changed into her high school hoodie which read "skateboarding is not a crime"; it was the same hoodie she wore 21 years ago when she first visited the iconic street.
