Singer Alanis Morissette wore a "nude suit" on stage at Canada's equivalent of the Grammys to complain about censorship in the US.
Alanis Morissette stepped out of a dressing gown to reveal her 'nudity'
Morissette, who was hosting the Juno Awards in Edmonton on Sunday, wore the cartoon-style bodysuit in protest at TV and radio censorship in the US.
"We can't show nipples on national TV,"
she said in relation to Janet Jackson's Super Bowl incident.
"I am proud to be able to stand here and do this," she told the audience.
"We live in a land where we still think the human body is beautiful and we're not afraid of the female breast," the singer said, after stepping out of a dressing gown to reveal her "nudity".
Morissette then criticised a radio station in the US for forcing her to change strong language in one of her recent songs.
"They're in an era when they're scared, when there's lots of fear," she said.
The Juno awards were this year dominated by Montreal's Sam Roberts, who picked up three awards.
Pop singer Nelly Furtado won best single for What You Want, while singer Sarah McLachlan won best songwriter. Rock band Nickelback took best group.
Morissette, who became an overnight sensation for her 1995 album Jagged Little Pill, releases a new album in May.
