It was only a matter of time before Avril Lavigne and her husband and Nickelback lead singer Chad Kroeger fulfilled their threat to release a duet, and yesterday was the big day with the unveiling of their new music video for “Let Me Go.” The easiest way to describe this video without using terms like “the music industry’s death rattle” or “Canada’s invention of aural warfare” is to tell you to imagine what it would sound like if Chad Kroeger wrote a song for Nickelback and Avril Lavigne sang it. I know, that’s pretty vague, but trust me that it’s 100% accurate.

Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger and his wife Avril Lavigne attended something called the Huading Awards in China on Monday, and I’m guessing the event honors outstanding achievement in making people physically ill any time they hear a specific music artist’s songs. But the big news for rock’s latest couple of the apocalypse is that Avril might be pregnant, because, according to the Daily Mail, the dress she wore to the awards is the type that most newly-pregnant women prefer. This rumor can’t be true, though, because it wasn’t followed by reports of everyone else on the planet trying to push Avril down a flight of stairs.

There’s some arcane Canadian law that requires Avril Lavigne to marry only other Canadian singers I can’t fucking stand. I think she gets a tax break or free smokes or something. She went with Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger. I was rooting for K.D. Lang. At least going lesbian would’ve made her interesting. When I think about the merging of these two musical maestros in holy matrimony, mostly I want to press my ears shut and mutter nonsensical words aloud to block out the horrid. Maybe their yacht will sink.

The 2013 Billboard Music Awards took place last night in Las Vegas, as Taylor Swift won a whopping eight awards to lead the stars in attendance. Justin Bieber performed twice and won three awards, and even Madonna stopped trying to conquer Castle Grayskull for one night so she could accept three awards as well, because kids these days just can’t get enough of the techno granny’s wicked house beats.
Canada’s first couple was also in attendance, as Avril Lavigne and Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger showed up in matching black leather outfits to remind people that they’re the faces of modern rock music. And in that moment, an entire continent wondered, “Why can’t we get Ted Nugent and his assault rifles to focus on the real enemy?”

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?

Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf got married and had a kid, and so did Nadia Comaneci and Bart Conner, which sounds like some Nazi program to create the worlds best tennis player or gymnast.
This is the exact opposite of that but with music.
Avril Lavigne and Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger’s relationship has been so quiet that few even knew they were dating. Now, after a six-month courtship, the Canadian rockers are engaged to be married, Lavigne’s rep tells People exclusively.
Lavigne, 27, and Kroeger, 37, first got together in February to co-write a song for Lavigne’s upcoming fifth studio album.
Well of course it was quiet. Would you tell anyone if you were dating Avril Lavigne or Chad Kroeger? I wouldn’t even acknowledge being in the same room with them. You’d have to put a burning tire around me to confess to dating one.
