Teenage rocker Avril Lavigne disgraced her parents by drinking vast quantities of beer with her classmates - on the eve of a tournament hockey game.

The 19-year-old COMPLICATED singer admits her mother was forced to keep her under intense surveillance when she left her private Christian school to advance to high school, because she became a wild tear-away.

She says, "I was on the girls' hockey team. We had a tournament and the night that I got there we were drinking some beer and I got sent home the next day and I didn't get to play hockey.

"My parents were extremely disappointed and I was grounded for a long time.

"It actually got to the point where I was even in grade 10 or 11 and my mom was like, 'I'm gonna start picking you up at your lunch hours at school.' And she totally did!

"My friends were like, 'What are you doing?' I'm like, 'Uh... I have a doctor's appointment...'

"That was way back when I got trashed off only one beer - back in the good old days. Actually, I'm still kinda like that!"
