Avril Lavigne has posed topless for a US magazine.
The 22-year-old singer appears on the front cover of Blender's June edition with her arms above her head in just a pair of black jeans with only the headline 'Hell Yeah, I'm Hot!' protecting her modesty.
The photo spread inside, which appears under the tag line 'Wild Thing', shows Avril wearing a short leather skirt, fishnet stockings and an open leather jacket posing with a bottle of whisky and a cigar.
The pictures are adorned with the quotes: "I used to drink like a mother, but I'm more mature now."
And: "I'm very driven. I'm the kind of person who doesn't take no for an answer."
In another photograph, Avril - who is married to Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley - sits with her legs pulled up looking down demurely in a cream mac, patent black stilettos and stockings.
Avril's latest photo shoot could be interpreted as hypocritical, following her scathing remarks about Britney Spears using her sexuality to sell records.
The 'Girlfriend' singer said: "I'm more about a performance, she's more about entertainment and sex, being a sex symbol and trying to look like she's having sex."
