Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger out and about in Paris (8/21)

I didn't even know these two were dating, but Avril Lavigne is now engaged to Chad Kroeger of Nickelback. It's a match made in shitty music heaven. If they have a daughter, she'll sound just like Rebecca Black. From People:
Lavigne, 27, and Kroeger, 37, first got together in February to co-write a song for Lavigne's upcoming fifth studio album. "A romantic relationship blossomed as they spent time writing together," a Lavigne pal tells People.

On Aug. 8, Kroeger popped the question, presenting Lavigne with a 14-carat diamond sparkler. "He makes her so happy," a family source tells PEOPLE. "Both of their families could not be more excited."
This is a gift from the poseur gods. Avril Lavigne, the queen of the pseudo punk movement, is marrying the guy who's such a non-rock guy that even Kid Rock gets the douche chills when his music comes on. Chris Daughtry has better musical cred than this hack. I'll admit that a union between Avril and Chad will be great for me personally, but is this what passes for news in Canada these days? I think America might want to reexamine our relationship with our maple syrup-slurping neighbors to the north. I'll admit that Canada has come through for us in the past with Pamela Anderson and their excellent ginger ale, but they've also given us Celine Dion and Alanis Morissette. Canada, consider yourselves on double secret probation.
