I thought for sure that someone behind a Canadian version of "Punk'd" was eventually going to come forward and take credit for Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger being engaged, but almost one year after the world learned of this unholy union, Avril is more excited than ever. The totally legit punk rocker told Access Hollywood Live yesterday that the Nickelback frontman was so perfect for her, because… you guys won't even believe this.
"My mother always taught me that. There was a rule in our house, no calling guys, I wasn't allowed to call guys, they had to call me. Men like a chase. I don't run after guys so he did it.
"Believe it or not, I actually said before we started dating, ‘I want to date someone who is 10 years older than me', and he's exactly 10 years older than me and it's nice." (Daily Mail)
That's amazing. Truly, the greatest love story of this generation. And while we all await her new album, "Here's to Never Growing Up", which was co-written by Chad, maybe they'll run off and get married somewhere ideal for their incredible love. Might I suggest Syria or the inside of a volcano?
