Avril Lavigne loves trashing hotel rooms.

The 'Complicated' singer - who recently announced she has split from husband Deryck Whibley - caused chaos during a stay in the UK by upturning each of her band members' rooms and throwing ice cubes everywhere.

She explained: "I definitely have trashed hotel rooms. I don't do it all the time, but once in awhile. In London, I was with my band, and I was in the bar with my friend Devon, who's my guitar player. I looked at him – it was like two o'clock in the morning – and I said, 'I think it's time for a band initiation.'

"So I went to the front desk and got keys to everyone's room. We got buckets of ice, and we got everybody's room keys and threw ice on them. The people who weren't in their rooms – we put it in the bathroom, on their mattresses, all over. It was really funny."

Avril has also revealed she can't resist partying whenever she is on the road and enjoys inviting her backing musicians back to her hotel suite after a live show.

The 25-year-old star told America's OK! magazine: "I'm a big fan of hotel mini bars.

"I'm always like, 'Everyone come in my room, let's crash the mini bar.' I like to have fun with that."
