And Avril Lavigne was clearly enjoying spending some quality time with her female friends on holiday in France earlier today.
Waving around a cigarette, the Canadian singer showed off her svelte figure in a strapless bright pink and blue bikini on holiday on a St Tropez yacht.

The 26-year-old star was clearly enjoying herself with her friends, and there was no sign of boyfriend Brody Jenner, stepbrother to Kim, Khoe and Kourtney Kardashian.
At one point the star leapt off the yacht into the water, before dancing around the boat clutching a drink.
However, she did manage to suffer a couple of wardrobe malfunctions, with her bikini bottoms slipping down as she hauled herself out of the sea.

Perhaps the star was taking time to relax before recording her next album - the sequel to this year's Goodbye Lullaby.
'I already have eight songs,' she told her Avril Lavigne fansite. 'I would like to release the fifth album really quick.'
She added: 'This record was more mellow, and the next one will be pop and more fun again. I already have a song that I know is going to be a single, I just need to re-record it!'

New love: Avril has been dating Brody Jenner since last year
Avril has been dating Brody since February last year following her split with husband Deryck Whibley, a guitarist with rock band Sum 41.
The couple were married for just over three years before announcing their split in September 2009 with their divorce finalised in November 2010.
The singer says writing songs about the emotional experience helped her through the split along with confiding in her girlfriends.
'They were there for me,' she told TV Week magazine. 'It did me really good to be able to tell them everything.
'It helped me come to terms with the things that had happened.'
She added: 'It also helped put my feelings down in paper. It was comforting. It's always been like that for me.
'When I was a kid, I had my diary to confide everything in. Now I write songs. It really was a form of healing.'
