Avril Lavigne Apologizes for Dropping F-Bomb at Baseball Game

USMagazine, Tuesday, May 31, 2011, 12:31pm (PDT)

Why'd she have to go and make things so complicated?

Avril Lavigne found herself in hot water on Saturday when her expletive-filled rant was heard by over 24,000 people at a Tampa Bay Rays' baseball in St. Petersburg, Florida.

The 26-year-old singer experienced technical problems during her performance at the game, eliciting boos from the crowd. Lavigne responded to the jeers with an R-rated rant, snapping that sound problems "f------ happen on a baseball field."

Later in the evening, Lavigne apologized for her outburst. "We just had so much fun tonight and we want to take the tirade out and say thank you to the Tampa Bay Rays!" she told the crowd. "I'm truly sorry if anyone was offended by my language."

On Sunday, the Rays released a statement condemning Lavigne's language: "The Rays demand profanity-free performances from all of our concert performers and we are extremely disappointed by the language used in last night's show."
