Pop sensation Hilary Duff has slammed fellow teen singer Avril Lavigne for criticising her own fans.

Canadian COMPLICATED singer Lavigne has attacked her fans in the past for copying her signature style of wearing ties over tank tops.

In one interview she ranted, "I sometimes see girls who are dressed like me and made-up like me. Get a life, you know?"

But SO YESTERDAY singer Duff believes Lavigne should show a lot more appreciation for her admirers.

She says, "I think some of the things Avril said about her fans were kind of mean-spirited. She said that she was p***ed off at her fans for copying her style.

"I was like, 'You should be happy that these people like you and look up to you!'"
