Avril Lavigne came face-to-face with a topless stage invader at the Juno Awards on Monday night.

The Canadian punk pop star was introducing musician AP Dhillon to the stage at Canada’s alternative to the Grammys at Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta, when she realised she wasn’t alone.

She was joined by a protestor dressed in pink cargo trousers and a matching headscarf, who had ‘save the green belt’ written on their back, seemingly in protest of the Ontario government’s proposal to build at least 50,000 new homes on 7,400 acres of the protective land of Greenbelt.

On her front, where she stickers covering her modesty and a countdown written across her chest, proclaiming: ‘Our clock is ticking. 0745 days left.’

The photos show the stage invader enjoying her moment, throwing her arms up as she faced the crowd and even posing cheekily with her tongue stuck out behind Avril, who was smiling.

However, the singer-songwriter was in a business-like mood and upon seeing the individual swiftly told them to ‘get the f**k off’.

They were then escorted from the stage.

Later, during her acceptance speech for the fan choice award, Avril, 38, quipped: ‘Now nobody try anything this time. I’ll f**k a b***h up.’

Marvel actor Simu Liu hosted the bash and thanked the Sk8r Boi hitmaker, who has been in the headlines recently for her new romance with rapper Tyga, for ‘handling that topless lady like a champion.’

Avril stunned her fans when she split with fiancé Mod Sun in February after getting together in 2020.

Just weeks later she was pictured out and about with Tyga during Paris Fashion Week, where they were also snapped kissing at a party.

The Weeknd was the big winner of the awards, winning a total of five Junos, bringing his total to 22.

It makes the Blinding Lights hitmaker, 33, the second most-awarded star in Junos history, with Anne Murray, 77, leading the way with 25 wins.

Four of his awards were announced at the Juno Opening Night Awards, which was live-streamed from the Edmonton Convention Centre at the weekend, and they were artist of the year, songwriter of the year, single of the year for Sacrifice, and pop album for Dawn FM.

At the main ceremony, the megastar was honoured with album of the year for Dawn FM, however, he was not there to accept the prize.

The evening also saw Nickelback inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, virtually by Ryan Reynolds and Michael Bublé.

Frontman Chad Kroeger, 48, said: ‘Returning home to Alberta, back to where everything started for us, is truly a full circle, milestone moment for the band.

‘We take so much pride in our Canadian roots and are extremely humbled by this honour.’

The Junos had previously caught heat for nominating Arcade Fire for group of the year, despite sexual assault allegations against frontman Win Butler.

Butler was accused of sexual misconduct by five people last year but insisted the encounters between them were consensual.

The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences had said that while it takes the allegations ‘very seriously’, they still wanted to ‘honour’ Butler’s bandmates.

Ultimately, the prize went to Arkells.
