Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger recently tied the knot after a whirlwind romance that would rival that of Elizabeth Taylor and Tim Burton, and they’ve got a fool-proof method to make sure nothing comes between them: marriage rules! That’s right, Avril and Chad are both banned from having any alcohol or going to any nightclubs without each other, no matter how long they’re apart. Because nothing says “loving, trusting relationship” like prohibiting your other half from doing anything fear that s/he might not have enough self control not to cheat on you.
“We don’t drink when we’re apart,” says Kroeger. “Ever. Even if we’re apart for weeks.” Lavigne says that it’s just the responsible thing to do. “We want to protect what we have,” she says.
No nightclubs. “We don’t want to go anywhere that you’re asking for trouble,” says Kroeger. He adds, “I don’t want to be in Europe texting her, like ‘Where are you?’ ” he says. “This way we don’t have to worry about any of that stuff.”
LOL. I mean, listen – if they’re both okay with this, then whatever, everyone Namaste and all that. And there is, of course, the added element of their “fame”, which means paparazzi will make shit up if they see one of them out and they happen to be talking to someone of the opposite sex, even if it’s just to order a drink. Also, if you’re married, I don’t really see why you’d be big into the club scene anyway. To dance? I mean, maybe, but… not really, so I can sorta see the motivation behind this. I still think it’s corny and probably largely based on the fact that Avril cheated on Derek Whibley when they were together (right?). Who even knows.
I think they’ll be divorced within the next two years.

Canada’s Wills & Kate, Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger, united in holy matrimony over the summer and as if that celebration of love wasn’t enough, they’ve now recorded a duet together and it’s here just for you. The song is called ‘Let Me Go’ and will appear on Avril’s upcoming album, which is out this November. I find it interesting that the song is about breaking up and letting go. Why not a song about your undying passion for one another and/or poutine? Come on, people!
To be honest, it’s not quite as bad as I thought it was. It actually rivals the Katy Perry/John Mayer duet for awfulness, which is quite high praise for these two. What do you think? Don’t lie – I know you’re going to order it on iTunes!

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.
