Avril Lavigne finally returns to the stage!
On Saturday, the Hello Kitty singer performed her latest single Fly during the Special Olympics World Games!
Debuting her new song at the opening ceremony for the El Lay event marked the 30-year-old's first performance in over a year!
Last month, Lavigne opened up about battling Lyme Disease since she was diagnosed in 2014, explaining she is going through treatment and is expected to make a full recovery.
The singer shared a heartfelt sentiment on her Instagram, revealing that she wrote the new song to "encourage people who are facing challenges, to encourage strength and to empower."
Michelle Obama wants to get the White House in pristine condition before she leaves!
It's been reported that the First Lady has redecorated the White House State Dining Room — at the small price of $595,000!
A few of the modest changes include silk draperies, custom made mahogany chairs (with "horsehair" fabric and trimmed with brass nail heads, of course!)
The update has been in the works since 2012, upon the arrival of two new custom-made wool rugs — so they can be switched out for cleaning!
This refurbishment isn't FLOTUS's first dramatic unveiling of an updated room in the White House.
In February, the 51-year-old
Girl Scouts Invade White House Lawn And Set Up Camp — How Are President Barack Obama & Michelle Obama Handling This Act Of War?!
In an unprecedented move, 50 Girl Scouts descended upon the White House lawn on Tuesday, shocking America and making camp for the night.
No, this isn't some sort of coup — it's actually just the first time anyone's ever spent the night on the South Lawn!
Michelle kicked off the event with an adorable introduction, saying:
"I really just wanted to formally welcome you to the White House. There it is, it's right there.
You're making history, this is something you can tell you kids and your grand kids, do you understand the impact of this day?"
Naturally, the 10 and 11-year-olds didn't quite understand how significant their sleepover actually was, but at least Michelle seemed to have fun!
Ch-ch-check out how the historic day unfolded (below)!!!

Raven-Symoné Doesn't Think Harriet Tubman Should Be On The $20 Bill Because She's Not Progressive Enough?!
That's so Raven?!
Recently, a grassroots campaign called "Women On 20s" started a viral frenzy when they proposed that former president Andrew Jackson be taken off the $20 bill and replaced with African-American abolitionist Harriet Tubman — who during the 1800s used the Underground Railroad to rescue approximately seventy family and friends from slavery.
Well apparently Tubman's work just doesn't impress Raven-Symoné!
On Wednesday's episode of The View, the former child star revealed that she didn't like the idea of putting the historical legend on such currency!
"No offense to everyone that's going to be mad at me for saying this, I don't like that idea… I think we need to move a little bit more forward. Let me just preface that I understand the history, I get it, trust me, I was taught, I was in that culture… I would've chosen Rosa Parks."
As to why she would've chosen Parks over Harriet Tubman, the 29-year-old believes the former is more progressive and more in-line with our current political landscape:
The First Lady donned a Princeton Tigers jersey for the very first ever city-wide College Signing Day with Get Schooled and Detroit College Access Network at Wayne State University. She was joined by R&B songstress Ciara and University of Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh to promote post-secondary education to 2,000 students.
Michelle emphasized the importance of going to college:
"I think that this day, the day where you publicly declare where you're going to college, this day should be as glamorous and as exciting as those athletic signing days. This day should be on TV, with fireworks and celebrities."
We couldn't agree more! The rally was part of her Reach Higher initiative. Ch-ch-check out more photos from the event above!
