Avril Lavigne engaged to Chad Kroeger? Yeah, we couldn't really believe it either - and neither could thousands of Twitter users. The pop singer has only been dating the Nickelback rocker for a couple of months, though it appears they're already ready to walk down the aisle. Gulp.
The couple announced the news to People magazine this week, leaving most of her fans downright confused - "I thought she was still with Brody Jenner!" they cried in unison. Inevitably, a swarm of mockery began working its way like a hurricane across Twitter, with pesky users using the pair's questionable musical talents to poke fun. One user joked, "Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger from Nickelback are getting married? I didn't know Canada allowed Same Sucks Marriage", while another mused, "A positive thought: They have a child. It rebels. And becomes an actual musician". Topping the list of the slightly more damming tweets was the user who posted, "Why is everyone freaking out about Chavril? This saves at least two other people from horrible relationships!".
It's the second marriage for 27-year-old Lavigne, who previously walked down the aisle with Deryck Whibley of Sum 41. It will be 37-year-old Kroeger's first marriage, and hopefully his last, though Twitter users probably aren't banking on it.
