Avril Lavigne --who you may also refer to as 'The Madonna of Japan' due to her enduring success in the Land of The Rising Sun-- continued her current Japanese promo tour this week with an appearance and double performance on popular morning show, Sukkiri!!
Hiding behind rock star shades and sipping from a Hello Kitty water bottle, Avril (with the aid of a translator) chatted about her love of Japanese fashion and received a video message from her hubby, Chad Kroeger, who warned her not to spend too much money while shopping in Tokyo. She also performed "Girlfriend" and her top five J-pop Hot 100 hit, "Rock N Roll."
The promo is definitely paying off, with Avril's new self-titled album topping the Oricon Daily Chart for the past three days -- and this is after it already debuted at No. 2 on the weekly chart. It's currently doing better in Japan than anywhere else, including both America and her homeland, Canada.
Avril Lavigne = Queen of Japan!
