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 Tampa, 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**king happen on a baseball field."

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."
