Congrats to Avril Lavigne and Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger! The pride and joy for the Great White North have tied the knot after a whirlwind romance, lots of hair dye and quite a few collaborations.
"How many people reading this are fans of Nickelback?," Patrick Stump asks at the beginning of a new blog post on his website. The thoughtful Fall Out Boy frontman proceeds to question why people pour so much energy into hating certain bands and other pop culture figures.
Avril Lavigne and ex-husband, Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley, have had a friendly relationship even after their divorce -- they worked together on a few of her albums -- so when Whibley donned a Lavigne costume for Halloween, fans weren't sure if it was an honor or a dig to the 'Girlfriend' singer. And apparently neither was her new fiance.
Uh, did anyone else get instant whiplash when they found out the news?! When we came across the PEOPLE mag article confirming that Avril Lavigne and Nickelback singer Chad Kroeger are engaged, we knew we needed to pop a Valium because... when did she and Brody Jenner break up?
