Avril Lavigne has hit out at Mark Zuckerberg for mocking her ex-boyfriend Chad Kroeger.
Avril Lavigne has lashed out at Mark Zuckerberg for ''bullying'' Nickelback.
The 32-year-old singer may have split from the band's frontman Chad Kroeger last year but that hasn't stopped her jumping to his defence when the Facebook founder mocked the group in a video about his home A.I. assistant Jarvis, voiced by Morgan Freeman.
Taking to her Twitter account, she said: ''Dear Mark, Many people use your products - some people love them and some people don't. Either way, you're allowed your musical opinion however, your jab at Nickelback is in poor taste. When you have a voice like yours, you may want to consider being more responsible with promoting bullying, especially given what's going on in the world today. #SayNoToBullying #TheJokeIsOld #NickelbackHasSoldOver50MillionAlbums (sic).''

The Lion King cast surprised passengers with their impromptu song on the subway, we look at other musicians who have given subterranean busking a pop.
Anyone who has ever travelled on the London Underground or the New York subway system knows that the experience is usually a dull and laborious affair. The carriages are sweltering and filled with people trudging to and from work, trying to avoid eye contact with everyone else despite the intense proximity of fellow passengers. All of these facets render the latest internet viral sensation as a harm-warming act to enliven the dreary public transport experience.

Earlier this summer, members of the cast from the Broadway hit Lion King broke into spontaneous song on the New York A-train. The resulting video is currently doing the rounds on social media. The A Cappella version of ‘The Circle Of Life’ leaves many passengers enthralled, clearly delighted to have their journey brightened by the performers impressive talents sing and clap along to the spectacle. Others, however, react with a passive indifference with a few even keeping their headphones in through the song’s entirety. But the Lion King cast’s impromptu performance is far from the first to take place on a subway system. We take a look at some other examples.

Avril Lavigne went way down in our estimations this week whilst Marc Anthony made knees weak at the Billboard Latin Awards and Peaches Geldof was laid to rest.
People's "Most Beautiful": Lupita Nyong'o is beautiful? Tell us something we didn't know! The 12 Years a Slave star was honoured this week for her natural beauty and bang-on style with People magazine's "Most Beautiful" prize. Sure, the award isn't as special as say, her Academy Award but goes to show that 2014 is the year of the Lupita for sure with filmmakers, fashion houses and fans falling at her feet. Need inspiration? We've compiled a list of her top red carpet looks here. And what was that about a role in the new Jungle Book movie?
'The Hobbit' Name Change: It's a bold thing for a director to change the name of a movie but the third and final 'Hobbit' movie has received a make-over from 'There And Back Again' to 'The Battle of the Five Armies.' Find out Jackson's reasoning for the swap here. The grandiose new title brings visions of the predictably epic battle between the goblins and dwarves, elves, men, and the majestic giant eagles at the foot of the Lonely Mountain. Expect awesomeness: here are our three predictions for the new movie.
What do you think of Avril Lavigne's 'Hello Kitty', racist or just plain terrible?
It’s difficult to know what you should have expected from a song called ‘Hello Kitty’ and its video, but whatever it was it clearly wasn't what Avril Lavigne served up on Tuesday. Some have called it the worst music video ever, others have taken more serious offence and labeled it racist. As for Avril she’s said, "RACIST??? LOLOLOL!!!" Yep we’re all lol-ing with you Avril…or are we?
Skrillex is everywhere these days
Avril Lavigne has gone through quite a few image changes in her career since her ‘Skater Boi’ days. Actually, although some may not want to admit it, there was a period (her second album, Under My Skin), when Avril was verging on being credible as an artist. Then she released ‘Girlfriend’ in 2007 and seemed to fall right back down the annoying pop rabbit hole. Since then, rather than trying to claw her way out, if ‘Hello Kitty’ is anything to go by, she’s pretty much set up home there. Last year Lavigne married Nickleback singer Chad Kroeger, who let’s just say, isn’t the most loved musician ever to sing for Spider-Man. Kroeger is actually listed as a writer on ‘Hello Kitty’, but we can't be sure how much of the blame for it can rightfully be attributed to him.

'The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones' actress has topped a poll of celebrities whose search engine results usually lead to websites containing malware, spyware, viruses and more
Lily Collins is a young, beautiful and talented actress who is gradually making her way to the top of the Hollywood hierarchy through her natural good looks and admirable acting talent. She also happens to be the biggest threat to the safety of your PC or laptop as the actress has been singled out as the 'most dangerous' celebrity name on the web.
Lily Collins, beautiful and dangerous
According to a report from anti-virus software McAfee, Collins poses the biggest threat of any celebrity on the internet in infecting your computer with a virus or malware. The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones star offers the biggest array of 'risky clicks' online, and if you were to add the terms 'nude images' or 'free apps' then the chances of accidentally stumbling on to a site chocked full of malicious threats is increased even further.

Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars and Katy Perry are among the names confirmed for the iHeartRadio Music Festival at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas in September. The two-day festival, set to be held on September 20 and 21, will also feature performances from Elton John, Keith Urban and a special pairing of Queen (with Brian May) and the former American Idol star Adam Lambert.
The main festival line-up was announced on Monday morning (July 15, 2013) in a press conference hosted by Ryan Seacrest. A final schedule will be announced closer to the festival, though Timberlake, Perry, Elton and Bruno Mars are likely to be the marquee names. The likes of Muse, Tiesto, Chris Brown, Fun, Phoenix, Maroon 5, Tim Mcgraw, Ke&ha, Thirty Seconds to Mars and Benny Benassi are other high profile names to have been confirmed.
Last year's festivals played host to No Doubt, Pink, Usher and Swedish House Mafia though it will be remembered for Billie Joe Armstrong's meltdown during Green Day's set. After smashing the band's instruments in protest of his set being cut short, Armstrong left the stage and was admitted to rehab the next day, cancelling his band's tour dates and promotional appearances.
Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler will attend a hearing in Hawaii on Friday (February 8, 2013) for discussions on a bill that would limit people's freedom to take photographs and videos of celebrities. Hawaii's Senate Judiciary Committee plans to consider the so called 'Steven Tyler Act' this morning - the first time in which lawmakers will discuss the bill publically.
A publicist for the former American Idol judge - one of the most recognizable men on the planet - told the Associated Press that Tyler has submitted written testimony supporting the proposal, which would allow celebrities to collect damages from someone who takes photographs in an offensive way. Tyler certainly has some big hitters on-side, including Britney Spears, Avril Lavigne, Neil Diamond, Tommy Lee and the Osbourne family. "Providing a remedy to the often-egregious acts of the paparazzi is a very notable incentive to purchase property or vacation on the islands," the stars say, "Not only would this help the local economy, but it would also help ensure the safety of the general public, which can be threatened by crowds of cameramen or dangerous high-speed car chases." The proposal is perhaps all the more relevant following the recent death of a photographer in Los Angeles who was attempting to snap pictures of Justin Bieber.
Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie says he supports the intent of the bill, though warns it may needed refining. Opponents simply say the bill could be unconstitutional.

For many celebrities it's pretty much part of the job description to dress up as a character or an alter ego every day of their lives. Lady Gaga's interesting choice of attire can almost always be described as a 'costume'. On Halloween therefore, celebs always go one step further than the rest of us, and also deem it prime-time to ridicule their colleagues, friends and celebrity enemies. This year sees three of the best.
Firstly, Avril Lavigne's ex-husband, Deryck Whimbley, dressed up as her. Chad Kroeger, Lavigne's current fiancée, bit back on Twitter "Hey Deryck loved the costumes! We were going to dress up as you guys this year but all the parties had celebrity themes haha!" Although you think he's joking, the evidence is stacking up to prove that this year's halloween is celebrity themed!
Ellen DeGeneners on her eponymously named chat show 'Ellen', dressed up as Sofia Vergara. She wore a turquoise sequined number, with big false boobs and a massive false bum. "Happy Halloween. As you can see I put my pumpkins out," said Ellen, jokingly. Luckily, Vergara took it all in her stride and found the whole thing hilarious- adding her own spin by reprimanding Ellen in Spanish- which the audience loved.

Chad Kroeger is not a happy man. No, the Nickelback star, 37, took to Twitter to hit back at his fiancee Avril's Lavigne's ex-boyfriend Deryck Whibley after the Sum 41 man had weirdly dressed as his former love for a Halloween party, with current girlfriend Ari Cooper attending as Kroeger.
Still with us? Well, clearly unamused by the stunt, Kroeger took to Twitter to hit back, saying, "Hey Deryck loved the costumes! We were going to dress up as you guys this year but all the parties had celebrity themes haha!" Ouch. But a fair point. But then he's in Nickelback. Whibley, 32, and Lavigne, 28, split in 2009 after three years of marriage, with the latter going on to date Brody Jenner of 'The Hills' fame. Seemingly out of nowhere, the singer announced she was engaged to marry Kroeger in August though maintained she was still good friends with Whibley. She told Ryan Seacrest, "He's one of my best friends, and we work really well together and we stay in touch. I think we're very lucky. We've been friends for a really long time and we always will be family. We have a connection. Things are good. I'm really grateful for that."
Lavigne released her fourth studio album Goodbye Lullaby in March 2011.
Halloween is prime time to dress up to revere your idols, scare your friends or ridicule those that you may feel deserve it. Occasionally however some people can get offended, which is exactly what happened with Prince Harry dressed up as a Nazi a few years back, and more recently when Sum 41 front man Deryck Whibley and a friend dressed up as his ex-wife Avril Lavigne and her new fiancee Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger, reports the NME.
Kroeger retorted to the offence with a tweet via his bands Twitter page, saying: "Hey Deryck loved the costumes! we were going to dress up as you guys this year but all the parties had celebrity themes haha! -CK"

Since breaking through with 2002's 'Let Go', Avril Lavigne has sold a reported 30 million albums as guitar music's answer to Britney Spears. Her last album, 'The Best Damn Thing', was released four years ago and she has amongst other things in the interim period launched a clothing line and perfumes, but now she returns to the medium of her original success.

R.J. (Bruce Willis) is a smooth-talking raccoon who lands in hot water when he tries to steal food from a hibernating bear (Nick Nolte). To spare his life, R.J. now has one week to recover a red wagon full of junk food or meet a grizzly fate. Lo and behold, the quick-thinking con artist crashes into a family of foraging beasts as they arise from their winter slumber. Led by neurotic turtle Verne (voiced by neurotic Garry Shandling), the animals invade the pop-up planned community that surfaced while they slept and begin to rummage for sweet treats.
