If you sit very still and listen closely, you can hear the sound of your sophomore year of high school dying softly in the background: Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroger (that guy from Nickelback) are officially married. I know it’s shocking, mainly because Avril Lavigne hasn’t aged physically or when it comes to the music she puts out, and Nickelback hasn’t been popular since my closet was full of Mudd jeans and chunky black boots, but it’s true.
“We want it to be unique and special and we want it to be a very big event but at the same time it’s small and it’s just close friends and close family,” Lavigne explained earlier this year. ”Of course Chad has been really involved. He’s also been really cool with just letting me kinda taking the wedding in the direction I want to take it in.”
I know these two take a lot of heat, because their relationship is almost too good to be true for those of us who came of age in the early millenium (humor-wise, not because any of us actually stood in line at Coconuts to buy their CD singles), but it’s nice when two people with so much in common can find love together, is it not? And they didn’t even get hitched because she’s pregnant!
Makes me want to put on my favorite sk8r shoes and do the Cupid Shuffle in front of my bedroom mirror.
