EDMONTON, AB, April 5 /PRNewswire/ - In a pre-planned, live sketch last night at The 2004 JUNO Awards, Canada's music awards, host Alanis Morissette made light of the recent Super Bowl controversy in the United States when she "exposed" herself on Canadian television. The songstress appeared on stage in a robe and stated that Canadians "live in a land where we still think the human body is beautiful and we're not afraid of the female breast."

She removed her robe to reveal a comical nude body suit with cartoonish nipples and pubic hair. To wild applause, Morissette stated that "I am proud to be able to stand here and do this."

Morissette continued her playfullness and removed her "tear-away" nipples and pubic hair when the in-house announcer advised that "we can't show nipples on national TV...and you can't show your pubic hair either."

The awards show, including the segment, aired live with no delay. Previously, Morissette stated that, as host of the JUNOS, she was "overjoyed to be back in my homeland, the truth North, strong and censor-free."

Canadian broadcaster CTV will provide a 10-minute "raw footage" highlight reel of the segment, in addition to other highlights, today, Monday, April 5 at 12 noon ET and 3 p.m.

Hosted by Alanis Morissette, The 2004 JUNO Awards featured performances by Avril Lavigne, Sarah McLachlan, Nelly Furtado, Michael Buble, Nickelback, Simple Plan and Barenaked Ladies, among others. The JUNO Awards is Canada's most-watched, music-based awards show, attracting a bigger audience than The Grammy Awards.
