Chad Kroeger Nickelback

Canadian rockers Nickelback have cancelled the remainder of their latest North American tour, in order for lead singer Chad Kroeger to undergo a vital throat operation.

The band, most famous for its 2001 hit ‘How You Remind Me’, was forced to duck out of the remaining dates of its ‘No Fixed Address’ tour of Canada and the US, because Kroeger needs to have surgery on an operable cyst on his voice box.

Don’t Want To See Nickelback In London? There’s A Kickstarter For That


Chad Kroeger Nickelback

Nickelback really are just one of those bands that people don’t like. Obviously the Canadian rockers have their fans, but on a whole we seem to hear a lot more hate than love for Chad Kroeger and the boys. But one Nickelback hater has taken matters into his own hands, setting up a Kickstarter campaign to stop the band from playing in London again.

Inspired by the successful run of Foo Fighters campaigns, where fans raised funds to bring the band to their town, Craig Mandell set up the campaign to try and ensure that Nickelback were never seen in London again.

Avril Lavigne Chad Kroeger

Are Chad Kroeger and Avril Lavigne heading for a split? Us Weekly reports that the couple are on the brink of divorce after fourteen months of marriage, but it could be nothing more than a Hollywood rumour.

The musical couple got engaged in August 2012 after only a month of dating, and wed in July 2013. Earlier this year Lavigne gushed on Twitter about the massive ring her husband presented her with in celebration of their one year anniversary, but it looks like there might be trouble in paradise. Us claimed that a source told them "It's over, he has been going around L.A. telling people that they are divorcing."

The Problem With Avril Lavigne's Single 'Hello Kitty' Isn't The "Racist" Video


Avril Lavigne Chad Kroeger

There’s been a lot of criticism of Avril Lavinge’s latest music video for her single “Hello Kitty.” The video sees Lavigne prancing around in a tutu skirt with a gang of Asian girls dancing behind her. The 29 year old rocker has been accused of “fetishizing” Asian women, as well as making a “caricature” out of them. The Huffington Post went so far as to practically order Avril to stop using Asian women as “props”.

Now, we’re going to have to disagree on this one. It’s a bit of an overreaction when you consider Gwen Stefani’s regular use of the Harajuku girls and even more so when you take into account Avril’s defence. If you could call it that, it’s essentially a tweet which reads, “RACIST??? LOLOLOL!!! I love Japanese culture."

Is Avril Lavigne's New Music Video A Crime Against Music? [Video]


Avril Lavigne Katy Perry Gwen Stefani Chad Kroeger

Avril Lavigne has dropped the music video for her sugary new single, 'Hello Kitty' from new album, Avril Lavigne. The rock and dubstep fusion track will be a surprise to say the least for fans of the pop punk of her early 'Sk8er Boi' days as the 29 year-old singer-songwriter boldly marches in a new direction in her sound.

Avril Lavigne Couldn't Have Predicted The Internet Storm That Would Greet Her New Video.

The girlish and garish 'Hello Kitty' will make fans recall the singer's similar U-turn on 'Girlfriend' but instead of cheerleader stomp rap and girl-on-girl cat-fighting, the new track is altogether another feline, full of dubstep drops, vocal effects and electro buzzes. Dressed in a plastic homage to Japanese teen culture, Avril debuts a new pastel-coloured, half shaved Skrillex-style hairdo which somehow manages to make the cheesy vid all the more terrible.

Avril Lavigne & Chad Kroeger To Marry In France


Avril Lavigne Chad Kroeger Deryck Whibley

'Girlfriend' singer Avril Lavigne and Nickelback's Chad Kroeger are to be married in the idyllic south of France and have already begun to celebrate this weekend with a Cannes wedding party on Saturday. Initial reports stated the wedding had taken place on Saturday due to a tweet from Mike Heller, CEO of the talent company that reps the 28 year-old star: "I'm in south of France about to see my little Rok star #avril get married I am so happy to be part of this special celebration." This was taken to mean that the knot had already been tied but a source even closer to the couple refutes the rumours, saying they're "not technically married yet" and that Heller's tweets were in anticipation of Monday's ceremony.

Queen of Pop Madonna scooped up three well deserved awards including Top Dance Album for 'MDNA', Top Dance Artist and Top Touring Artist after her controversial 'MDNA' tour which landed her amidst a handful of lawsuits.

Celebrities Dress Up As Celebrities For a Scary Halloween


Nicki Minaj Miley Cyrus Ellen Degeneres Sofia Vergara Chad Kroeger Avril Lavigne

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.
