Canadian pop star AVRIL LAVIGNE stunned fans at one of her recent concerts, when she waltzed onto the stage dressed as a scantily clad waitress.

The COMPLICATED singer was performing at a Hallowe'en (31OCT04) gig in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, when she decided to give patrons an extensive view of her body in the little orange shorts and half-tops worn by female employees of HOOTERS bar chain.

She tells BLENDER magazine, "We were at lunch at Hooters the day before, and I asked for a uniform.

"During the show, I ran backstage, put it on, came out dancing to (Outkast's) HEY YA! and did vodka shots with the band. It was a really fun night!"
