Avril Lavigne's engaged to Chad Kroeger

Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger make quite the pair, eh?

According to People magazine, Lavigne and Nickelback frontman Kroeger have actually been dating for about six months, and CNN's confirmed that the two are now engaged.

While we can think of a few who haven't fallen in love with Nickelback's approach to music, Lavigne apparently isn't among them. It seems Kroeger, 37, swept the 27-year-old off her feet with his songwriting skills before proposing earlier this month with a 14-carat diamond ring, People reports.

The now-engaged pair reportedly got to know one another in February while working on a song for Lavigne's new album, and "a romantic relationship blossomed as they spent time writing together," a friend of the songstress told People mag.

Their impending nuptials will be Kroeger's first marriage and Lavigne's second, as she was previously wed to another Canadian musician, Sum 41's Deryck Whibley. Lavigne also dated Brody Jenner for about two years before E! announced their split in January. We wonder if she's still sporting his name on her rib cage?

    I guess their affinity for crap tier music is what drew them together. I sense duets in the future....dear lord help us all.

    Please don't get married. Just be together. Before you go into a union where each of you vows to honor and cherish the other forever...only to back out on your words down the road you need to take a step back and think about it. Look around you...everyone is divorcing...do you want this?

      I personally do not like either artists music, but music quality is relative and I can't say my musical taste is better than anyone else's. Obviously NBack is one of the most popular bands out there right now

    There was a time when Nickelback actually made good music, but they have since COMPLETELY sold out. It is a shame really as they are talented. As for Chad and Avril... just another example of hot chick, ugly dude.

    One time I was in a sushi restaurant and I realized I had table right next to the entire group of Nickelback. I excitedly got my waiter's attention and asked if I could have a table somewhere else.

      Were you able to eat after that? I would have ate then run screaming from the building. Screw the bill, the restaurant should be punished for serving Nickelback.

    If you combine a nickelback song and a dog turd, the dog turd actually loses value. The nickelback song lessens the value of a dog turd.....

    I SO don't understand the hatred for Nickleback. Seriously, it's hard-edged, driving rock n roll that's (OMG) catchy and worthy of a sing-along! Yes, a lot of it sounds the same, but, um, that's true for a LOT of the garbage that's spewed toward us a music these days! Oh, and as for comparing them to Rush, well, just stop it! Guilty pleasures abound throughout the world my friends...and I'm keeping Nickleback as one of mine!!

    Their kids can carry on the tradition of making some of the most revolting music ever.

    Until they can find a way to clone the three guys in Rush, Canadian music should be banned from the US. These new acts su**.
