Avril Lavigne came face to face with a topless stage invader at the Juno Awards on Monday night.
Canadian pop-punk star was introducing musician A.P. Dillon to the stage at Alternative Canada for the Grammys at Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta, when she realized she wasn’t alone.
Upon seeing the individual—who had “Save the Greenbelt” written on the back, apparently in protest of the Ontario government’s proposal to build at least 50,000 new homes on protective Greenbelt land—the Sk8er Boy hitmaker quickly told them to “Get on and f*** off.” “.
Later, during her Fan Choice award acceptance speech, Avril, 38, joked, “Now nobody’s trying anything this time. I’m going to ****.”
Marvel actor Simu Liu hosted the party and thanked the singer for “treating that topless lady like a champ.”
The Weeknd was the biggest award winner, winning a total of five Junos, bringing his total to 22.
It makes the “Blinding Lights” hitmaker, 33, the second-most awarded superstar in Junos history, with Anne Murray, 77, leading with 25 wins.
Four of his awards were announced at the Juno Opening Night Awards, broadcast live from the Edmonton Convention Center that weekend, and they were Artist of the Year, Songwriter of the Year, Single for Sacrifice, and Pop Album for Dawn FM.
At the main ceremony, the star was honored with Dawn FM’s Album of the Year, however, he was not present to accept the award.
The evening also saw Nickelback inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, rounded out by Ryan Reynolds and Michael Bublé.
Frontman Chad Kroeger, 48, said: “Coming home to Alberta, where it all began for us, is really full circle, a defining moment for the band.
“We take great pride in our Canadian roots and are very humbled by this honor.”
