Former cockerspaniel and Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger 37, proposed to Brody Jenner-banger Avril Lavigne, 27. The two have been quietly dating for six months and Lavigne’s people broke the news to old person-gossip bible, People magazine.
The pair got together in February this year to co-write a song for Lavigne’s fifth studio album.
This odd match comes as a shock to most Canadians due to the similarities between the two artists: both Nickelback and Avril Lavigne enjoyed years of early success with strings of number one irritating singles like “This is how your remind me” and “Sk8er boy”. That is until Canadians sobered up from their potent home brew and realized their music was terrible, but they continued success inside and outside of Canada with Avril touring in Asia this year.
As for Nickelback, Google “Nickelback sucks” and you’ll find up to 1,390,000 results.
Nickelback and Avril Lavigne saturated the airwaves in the early 2000s, but we blame the Canadian content requirements for Canadian radio (CRTC): “English-language and French-language stations must ensure that at least 35% of the Popular Music they broadcast each week is Canadian content.”
In 2010 Lavigne began to date professional sirloin steak Brody Jenner, which fizzled out earlier this year. She announced the news on his 29th birthday, good girl.
In 2006 Avril married fellow Canadian Deryck Whibley of now inactive punkish band Sum 41. I assume the only question the former punk rocker has for her now is,”You gonna finish that sandwich?”
