The Nickelback frontman doesn't care about the world's opinion to his recent engagement to Avril Lavigne, and reveals the pair only started dating on July 1. Shotgun wedding, anyone?

Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger says he doesn't care about the reaction to his engagement to emo-princess Avril Lavigne.

The pair had announced their engagement out of the blue in August, having spent six months together after Kroeger was recruited to write for her new album.

"I try not to take too much interest in the world's opinion of our relationship. I just know the both of us are very happy," he told People magazine (via NME).

It turns out the Canadian musicians started dating on Canada Day, July 1. "We think it's very cool that our anniversary will always be on Canada Day," he said. "We can't wait to start our life together."

Lavigne previously said she was swooned by his sense of humor: "He makes me laugh every day. He takes care of me in every way and is extremely attentive."

With an engagement ring worth $350,000, it's no surprise that they could afford to celebrate their engagement with a party in Las Vegas.

Lavigne had been married to Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley in 2006, but they split three years later.

    The funniest thing about the title is that I originally read it as Chad Kroeger slams Avril Lavinge.

    You can really tell they are doing it on purpose now..

    I was going to say the same thing, the people slamming the slams probably end up giving more hits to UG based on the hilarity of their slams haha
    My Last Words
    Lmao, the only reason I clicked this is because it had SLAM in the title. Good thinking, UG : )

    I didnt read the 2nd line so in my mind I read Chad Kroeger Slams Avril Lavigne
    HarvesterofPain
    I try not to take too much interest in the world's opinion of our relationship. Yep, I'm not surprised that this counts as a slam here.
    MrFlibble
    I first read that headline as simply "Chad Kroeger slams Avril Lavigne" and thought "yup, he probably has, a couple of times a night I would think".
    Vash_15
    I can see the next headline already DERYCK WHIBLEY SLAMS EX: "It doesn't bother me, I wish the best for both of them"
    Veronique Vega
    You know what? I'm happy for them. I hope they have a long and loving marriage. Haters and slamming aside, good on them.
    jrodgers
    I'm happy for them too. Hopefully their lives from now on starting a family will be so fullfilling and busy, that they won't even have the time or desire anymore to make music.
    Bonfire_911
    My thoughts exactly. If they're happy and love each other, fine. There's no need to slam or moan about it

    I searched the word "slam" on UG news: You've searched for 'slam' : 100 news found lolololololo

    "Chad Kroeger Zings Avril Lavigne Haters" made me lol.

    "Chad Kroeger Vituperates Avril Lavigne Haters" I don't even know what it means, but it sounds hilariously violent.
    jrodgers
    That picture up there of freakin Chad Kroeger and Avril Lavigne hugging with cheesy smiles is absolutely hilarious. I can't wait to see it pop up all over the internet in those black framed, inspirational poster parodies.

    "I try not to take too much interest in the world's opinion of our relationship. I just know the both of us are very happy," Yeah, him being indifferent is a total "slam".
    ColdbringeR
    This just end, Chad and Avril seen walking into a mall. Chad reports "I like clothes." UG news title: Chad Kroger Slams Nudity
    SkepsisMetal
    Thought it would more be her defending him against haters. All joking aside though, it really brings out in the open how many people have zero social life when they feel the need to rag on celebrities and the couples between them.

    "I try not to take too much interest in the world's opinion of our relationship. I just know the both of us are very happy" perhaps ultimate-guitar should go look at an definition of slam.

    Ill be honest, I was scrolling down the page slowly and read 'Chad Kroeger Slams Avril Lavigne'..
    goremetal22
    With all these slams makin headlines, UG should start covering WWE too. You know, to keep up with the high slam demand

    Lavigne previously said she was swooned by his sense of humor: "He makes me laugh every day. He takes care of me in every way and is extremely attentive." Her favorite is probably when he plays her his songs and goes: "This one is really good."
    INstaNt-RocK
    Not sure if using 'slam' excessively to troll or just terrible excuse for journalism...
    Darth_Qurashi
    literally everyone that talked to me about this said the same thing when they heard the news: "I thought she was dating Brody Jenner" lol.
    Meta1H3ad
    The slam title made my day! But seriously, it's cool if their married I don't mind, but slammers gonna slam...
    kill it
    slamming aside. it doesn't take a genius to realize that chad kroeger is a master at writing modern radio hits. his track record certainly speaks for itself. he could probably help avril become the biggest female artist on the planet.

    Btw, how is "I try not to take too much interest in the world's opinion of our relationship. I just know the both of us are very happy" a slam? I mean that's just a statement. It doesn't attack haters, it just says he's ignoring them...
