Avril Lavigne has blasted pop rival Britney Spears' for dressing like a "showgirl" and "dancing like a 'ho" on stage.

The COMPLICATED star, 19, insists she would never resort to the raunchy tactics Britney uses to win over fans and sell records.

Lavigne blasts, "She's not being herself up there.

"It's definitely not what I'm going to do.

"I mean the way Britney dresses - would you walk round the street in a f****** bra?

"You won't see me on the stage in a sexy outfit or my hair in ribbons."
