“We don’t drink when we’re apart. Ever. Even if we’re apart for weeks. We don’t want to go [to nightclubs or] anywhere that you’re asking for trouble. I don’t want to be in Europe texting her, like ‘Where are you?’ This way we don’t have to worry about any of that stuff.”
–Chad Kroeger tells People that one of his and Avril Lavigne’s rules for a happy, Chavril-tastic marriage is a pledge to only drink together. I’m all about doing whatever works for you, but I also feel like they might want to work on their trust issues instead of making rules. Does anyone want to discuss the intricacies of Chavril’s marriage with me? No? OK. Some of the couple’s other tips for a happy relationship: don’t go more than two weeks without seeing each other, and make plenty of time for snuggling. You’re welcome! [People]
I know I’m pretty much the only one who still cares about Chavril LaKroeger, AKA Chad Kroeger and Avril Lavigne, and every time I post stuff about them I get kind of nervous that Amelia is going to take me aside and be like, “Winona, it’s time to chill out about Chavril.” But since she hasn’t said anything yet, here is a super romantic photo of Chavril on the set of the video for their duet, “Let Me Go.” In related news, I just discovered I have THREE different photos saved on my computer titled “super romantic chavril pic.” Sigh. It might be time for me to chill out about Chavril… [Instagram]
Fresh off the release of an amaaaaaazing duet with her husband Chad Kroeger, Avril Lavigne ditched her “Tank Girl”-inspired duds and about half her usual amount of black eyeliner for an editorial shoot with Bello magazine. Here’s the punk pop princess in two demure gingham outfits by Prada. She looks quite lovely, although I really, really wish Chad had made a dapper-suited cameo. [Daily Mail]
You guys, the long-awaited Chavril LaKroeger duet has finally dropped! I’ve already listened to it four times and I LOVE IT. “Let Me Go” was recorded for Avril’s upcoming album, which Chad worked on, sparking their fabled romance. Listening to this song is like watching the third season of “Newlyweds” and seeing Nick and Jessica’s relationship unravel in real time, but the opposite of that. With every note of this song, you can hear Chavril falling deeper and deeper in love. I’m crying right now. I need to go compose myself. Just push play. [YouTube]
Remember when we saw those pictures of Avril Lavigne and Danica McKellar dressed up as sexy post-apocalyptic punk rock warriors and we were all like, “Umm, what?” Well, the video they were filming (for Avril’s new song “Rock N Roll”) is finished, and when you see it, you will be like, “Um, WHAT?!” In addition to Danica, the video features a BearShark, a dog funeral, a painfully awkward Sony sponsorship, and, perhaps most confusing of all, Billy Zane on a rocket-powered Segway. Push play, if you think you’re rock n’ roll enough to handle it! [NYMag.com]
Here’s what we know: Avril’s shooting a new music video; the theme is “Tank Girl”; Danica McKellar is making a sexy cameo; there is a good chance that Avril’s hands are permanently stuck in the devil horns position. So, there you go. [Daily Mail] [Photos: Splash News]
Finally, we have a full-length photo of Avril’s black wedding dress! In our poll yesterday, a slight majority of Frisky readers expressed distaste for the black wedding dress trend. I’m totally into the color (or lack thereof) of Avril’s dress and hubby Chad Kroeger’s coordinating black tux, but I have some other concerns about this photo. Mainly, how is it possible for a 14th century French castle to look exactly like the “hidden forest” background of my 5th grade school picture? Suspicious… [People]
Over the weekend, Nickelback singer Chad Kroeger tied the knot with fellow Canadian Avril Lavigne in a castle in the south of France. Pretty fancy, Chavril. The pair got married in a mega-gothy ceremony, with Lavigne in a custom Monique Lhuillier gown. A black gown. Black gowns are nothing new, of course; earlier this year, Shenae Grimes wore a black Vera Wang gown to marry her boyfriend, Josh Beech. And back in 1997, Sarah Jessica Parker wore black at her wedding to Matthew Broderick. All in all, colorful wedding dresses seem to be blowing up, but we’re a bit on the fence about all that black. It just seems a bit … dour? What do you think?

“I wanted to make sure it’s a crazy vacation and an experience of a lifetime for our guests … I wanted it to be over the top. I’m obsessed with castles and I love French décor and goth. I found this castle in France and we visited it and it was perfect.”
–New bride Avril Lavigne opens up about her weekend wedding to Chad Kroeger in an upcoming Hello! Canada cover story. More details that I know none of you care about but I am obsessing over: the ceremony was held at the Chateau de la Napoule medieval castle near Cannes, Lavigne wore a black tulle Monique Lhuillier gown and carried a matching black bouquet, and the 110 guests danced to a playlist that included Lynyrd Skynyrd and Bruno Mars.

It. Is. Finally. Happening. Chad Kroeger and Avril Lavigne — the couple known affectionately as Chavril — are getting married in the south of France today. Over the weekend, some Chavril friends tweeted about wedding festivities, which set off a rumor that the wedding happened on Saturday, which set off a frantic stream of “I NEED PICS WHERE ARE THE PICS” messages between Amelia and me, but alas, the event was actually a pre-wedding party. Today is the actual wedding day, and the best part? Today is also Canada Day. Seriously.
