Proof I'm a Sap: I'm Excited Chad Kroeger and Avril Lavigne Are Engaged

I love this: Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger is engaged to Avril Lavigne. The Canadians met a few months ago during a song writing session for Lavigne's upcoming album. The couple dated for six months and it was all hush-hush.

According to People magazine, Kroeger proposed on August 8th and presented Lavigne with a 14-carat diamond engagement ring. No wedding date has been announced.

This is my giggly-girlie-post. I love Nickelback and I love weddings (and engagement rings). So that's it. Not Glam, but when was the last time a news headline actually made you smile? Seeing this news did make me happy, so I just had to share.

But well I guess, goodluck to both of them.

I'm sure they're losing sleep over this over on Metal Sludge. Not.

Poor Girl. I give it two years. Remember, you heard it here folks. That dude is even more annoying than his music (the aberration, "Animals", being pretty much the sole exception). She's actually quite annoying, too, but a lot easier on the eyes than he is.

Of course, I'm probably suffering from a mild case of jealous rage over this announcement.

Her earlier stuff was actually pretty good but it seems like they've both suffered at the hands of Record Label Generockification.

Yet, after all this, I have to do what's right and wish them well.

This is so not ROCK n ROLL !!! Avril Lavigne ? Seriously ?

Chad, Chad, Chad... love when you "rock" hate when you put out too many sappy POP ballad tunes. This may be the last straw, your last album put me on the cliff of Nickelback staying relevant.

I swear I saw a MTV Cribs once and you just had a playboy model just lounging about ? Now that's more like it !!

He doesn't break the creepiness code though, so that's a positive. 1/2 your age plus 7.

No Ipod to work today since I had to give a coworker a ride but in flavor of this story, here's Steel Panther and Avril Lavigne's fiance (about the 1:08 mark):

The upcoming wedding may delay a new Nickelback album. That's good news right?

Ally, you're NOT a sap just because you happen to like music/people that it's not "cool" to like. For God's sake, thats what makes us all individuals. I've got Nickelback on my ipod,along with Slayer.I've got Avril Lavigne on my ipod along with Rammstein. Like Sheryl Crow so correctly sang,"If It Makes You Happy,It Can't Be That Bad". As I got older I realized, they are words to live by my friend. Think I didn't take shit in high school for liking Deep Purple and Black Sabbath when disco was all the rage?? HA Ha, ya just gotta roll with it,because the same folks who'll give you shit will be the ones 2 years down the road liking those same bands they gave ya shit about when they are "in" and "cool".....YOU GO GiRL!!!! LOL

Lavigne seems fake to me, and a fame whore. I assume she has money, but I hope this isn't a move to keep her in the media spotlight. And I hope she is the Yoko Ono that breaks up Nickelback.

Metalboy,LMFAO!!!!!!Yup, seriously dude!. My buddy always sez to me that I have the most eclectic taste in music known to mankind.LOL. I'm a headbanger at heart and always will be, but I enjoy any and all genre's.If it makes my foot tap it's OK in my book.If the lyrics grab my attention, it's OK in my book. Kids had me listening Lavigne's sk8er boy years ago coming back from VA Beach,so thats how i got exposed to her!! LOL

I remember how excited Chad and Avril were when my wife and I got engaged...Oh that's right, they don't know me, and I don't know them, so who cares?

Yeah, Gary, don't tell anybody but I'm actually a major Carpenter's freak!

"And I hope she is the Yoko Ono that breaks up Nickelback."
