Between her duet with Marilyn Manson (who I’m still sure was her flower girl at her wedding) to shooting a video with Danica McKellar, Avril Lavigne sure has some weird ass choices for collaborations. We’ve got a new name to add to that list, however, because she released the teaser for her upcoming ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll’ video this week, which stars… Billy Zane?
This song sounds like the full-length will fucking suck, considering the only lyrics we hear in the teaser are about putting your middle finger up to the sky to prove that you’re still rock ‘n’ roll. Yup, that’ll show ‘em. Also, why is Billy Zane a cowboy? Why is he in this video? Why am I trying to understand this? After all, this is the only thing about Billy you’ll ever need to know (besides all of Titanic, of course):
Avril Lavigne has a new album coming out and she posted the cover on her Facebook page and I don’t really know what to say about it. I feel like she’s trying to to go in a more artistic direction than she’s used to or something, as this kind of looks like what Marc Jacobs would do if he had to run Hot Topic’s creative. And he would never, ever do that.
She added the caption, “Thanks to all my fans for the amazing support! Here’s an exclusive look at the cover of my new, self-titled album!”
I will still defend Avril’s black wedding dress to this day, though not the dude she married it in.
What do you think of this cover?
Avril Lavigne married Nickleback’s Chad Kroeger while wearing a black wedding gown. I’m trying to find a joke in the sentence…but honestly, I’m in an emotional place right now where I’m discovering that after many, many years I actually like Snickers and it’s a wonderful feeling, so really I’m just happy for them. I have a new treat, they have a new marriage, she has a new dress, look at all of these new things.
According to People, the gown is,
a black Monique Lhuillier creation accented with matching jet roses [...]
I hate her eye make up other than that, whatever, yay for nontraditional wedding dresses.
What do you think?
I know we all thought Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger were tying the knot in France on Saturday, but it actually happened on Monday, which was Canada Day, because of course their love is bigger than a national holiday. They apparently had a Canada-themed wedding extravaganza that kicked off on Saturday in Cannes and culminated in a big ceremony yesterday (which we have no actual reports of just yet).
Here’s what we do know, from E! News:
The couple’s three-day wedding celebration kicked off last night in the South of France in Cannes with a rehearsal dinner, a wedding source tells E! News.
“[Avril] picked Cannes because she’s spent significant time in Paris in the past few years and summered in places like St. Tropez,” the source said. “She’s very immersed in French food, ambiance and culture. It’s her favorite place to be.”
While the pair isn’t expecting a ton of celebs at their affair, former X Factor judge L.A. Reid is expected to attend the duo’s nuptials.
The actual ceremony will be held Monday night at an undisclosed location, and according to the source, not even the guests know where they’re going just yet.
They’re all being picked up from a location in Cannes and driven to the wedding venue.
Well, that’s… exciting. I’m sure they had a grand old time.
Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger – Canada’s royal couple – have been planning their “spectacular” wedding for a few months now, and apparently tied the knot on Saturday in France. The news wasn’t released by the newlyweds, but instead by some bro named Mike Heller, the CEO of Talent Resources, who posted that shit on his Twitter.
Way to go, Mike. No one asked you to share this shit on social networking. God, you can’t do jack shit without someone putting it on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Vine, Tumblr, whatever. Love that this dude thought he’d get “#avril” trending, as well.
Also, LOL no I’m not really mad that he told everyone they got married, because I literally have never cared less about something. Still, it is a shame that as ~celebrities~ all your “friends” and even business people apparently don’t know the definition of discretion. I only have one question about this ceremony: do you think Marilyn Manson was the flower girl?
Avril Lavigne is getting married soon to the Chad Kroeger of Nickelback, which is shocking enough on its own (I didn’t even think it was legal to marry the lead singer of Nickelback) but recent photos prompted “speculation” that the singer is pregnant. E Online spotted a “baby bump” in this photo:
I can see from this photo why they would ask that, but then you can see from other shots taken that night that it’s more likely her dress is billowing in the wind, and the weird pattern adds to the illusion.
E Online admitted,
And while her rep couldn’t be reached for comment, a source close to the singer told E! News it’s not true.
Yeah, no kidding. Come on, E!, why’d ya have to go and make things so…complicated? (Yeah, I know, I’m sorry.)
But check out the rest of the photos anyway.
Avril Lavigne has always insisted that she’s just soooo punk rock, despite the fact that she grew up as a Shania Twain fangirl and her version of punk included some Dickies and wearing a tie, but whatevs. Now she’s taken it to a whole other level by teaming up with her longtime pal Marilyn Manson for a duet called ‘Bad Girl’, which will feature on her new album. Not only did they make magic in the studio, but Marilyn also convinced her to shave the side of her head and helped her get the job done. Oh, Marilyn – such a troll!
From MTV News:
“It was last minute,” Lavigne said of recruiting Manson for the track. “I was sitting there at the board thinking Manson would be perfect on this track, so I texted him, and he’s like, ‘I’ll come over and I’ll hear it.’ So he came at 4 o’clock in the morning. … Yes, it was one of those nights.”
The Manson/Lavigne duo may seem like an unlikely one, but they are actually longtime friends. (Lavigne first met the rocker at one of his concerts when she was 18.) In fact, he is the one responsible for Lavigne’s half-shaved haircut that she sported last year.
“I had wanted to shave the side of my head for quite some time, and I used to put it in a braid there [side of her head] and so it was kind of like shaving it,” Lavigne said “And then one night, it was on my adventure to France. During my adventure when I was living there, we were hanging out backstage and we were with his band having a few drinks and I was like, ‘Let’s shave my head. I’m ready; let’s do this!’ He’s like that, though. He has fun. He wears his makeup; his wardrobe is very visual. I like his style.”
LOL. I dunno what to even say about this, it’s all so LOL to me. It also makes him a hell of a lot less cool in my eyes. And by “cool” I mean a tolerable, pretty innocuous and misunderstood bro who gets off on being a weirdo but isn’t hurting anybody. There’s only one question left: will Marilyn be bridesmaid at Avril’s wedding?
