“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.

“We started dating and the next day he was like, ‘You know I’m gonna marry you.’ And I said, ‘I know.’ It was one of those things that we just knew.”
–Avril Lavigne spills some specifics about her whirlwind romance with fiance Chad Kroeger in a joint interview that also included Chad summarizing the pair’s courtship as follows: “it just kind of blossomed into this kind of thing.” You guys, I have to admit that my Chavril obsession has gotten to the point where I literally started sweating when I saw they had done an interview together. I was literally leaking Chavril excitement out of my pores. I’m disgusting. Sorry. CHAVRIL 4EVER. [Us Weekly]
“This one song that I’ve got, I don’t even know what the title would be, it sounds like something John Lennon would be doing in his very psychedelic stage. It starts with these congo or bongo drums carrying this strange rhythmic pattern. And then a tambourine doing off-time hits with it… It’s pretty bizarre. But it’s pretty catchy. Who knows, maybe we’ll stick it on the next Nickelback album.”
–Chad Kroeger reveals to Men’s Health that Nickelback is sitting on a crazy, psychadelic, paradigm-shifting, super experimental–but still catchy!–song in that maybe, just maybe, will make an appearance on the band’s next album. As an avid Nickelback fan, I will be waiting with bated breath. Another major revelation from Chad’s interview? He and fiance Avril Lavigne call each other “Chavril” at home(!), and Avril has taken total control of their wedding plans: “Let’s just say she’s … steering the ship towards what is going to be the most unique wedding that the planet has probably ever seen.” Be still, my Chavril-loving heart!

Congratulations Deryck Wibley! You win for most utterly passive aggressive ex-husband ever. The Sum 41 singer evidently teamed up with a friend to go as his ex-wife Avril Lavigne and her new fiance, Nickelback singer Chad Kroeger. My guess? I bet Deryck and Avril had an exes with benefits thing going on, and then Chad stepped in and ruined the arrangement. Ah, Canadian drama.
