  • poll: Would you listen to Nickelback forever if you got a 14 carat diamond ring out of the deal?

    God no. I value my ears.

    Hell yeah! I'll plug my ears with diamonds.

    I was just thinking about how it would be so strange to agree to marry somebody that 90% of the population makes fun of…but then I realized that they are BOTH in that situation, so it made more sense.

    maybe the 14k relates to the metal not the diamond!! Who needs a 14ct diamond anyway?!

    We need an option for, “wait, what? I thought she was dating that other guy….”

    LOL. I don’t even have words. Though (I can sense the judgement coming) I own several of her cd’s and do occasionally jam out to them in my car when I’m feeling particularly infantile. So… I’m curious to see how this song sounds.

    Edited because I really just posted my response using the “tho” in place of “though”. Yikes..

    Some gems from FB and twitter today

    1. People forget that Avril and Chad Kroeger are both Canadian so they HAVE to get married. It’s also why Justin Bieber is going to marry Rush.

    2. Let’s hope that Avril Lavigne is to Nickleback what Yoko Ono was to the Beatles 

    3. Does Avril know she has money?

    4. I have serious concerns about our Canadian tabloid industry when #Chavril can exist for 6 months without us knowing.

    5. Chavril: Talk to your doctor. (side effects may include hearing loss, nausea, boredom, ennui, anxiety, Napanee, shirt stains, and plaid)

    6. Oh my god. #Chavril is the insanity that occurs when CanCon rules are too strict. I blame the CRTC for this monstrosity.

    7. Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger have requested that in lieu of wedding gifts, everyone stop laughing uncontrollably at them.

    8. I never imagined that if Avril Lavigne had married another musician that she’d be known as ‘the more talented one’.

    9. Chad Kroeger has asked Avril Lavigne to marry him. He proposed in 20 different ways and they all sounded the same.

    I don’t particularly like Nickelback but I don’t hate them like everyone else seems to.

    I had no clue that the two of them were even dating though!

    @Juliepants:  hahahaha! I know I didn’t quote anything in particular, but my laugh applies to basically everything you’ve said here.

    14 kt is like, 3/4 of an inch in diameter, at least.

    That’s just too big.  Ewwwwww!!!

    @Mrs.KMM:  I agree.  Actually I think it’s kind of mean and petty.  People openly hate on Nickelback and Avril because it’s cool.  Obviously when you call someone out on it, they always have some sort of “legit” answer for bashing them.  I don’t know.  I’m pretty indifferent to both of these artists but I do know I like some of their songs.

    It just makes me feel like a shitty person seeing everyone jump on the hate train.  Even if it’s joking or for fun?

    Remember when people complained about how small Pricilla Chan’s ring was?  This is the same thing.  Avril’s is going to be HUGE and I’m curious to see it… but I don’t think that warrants an “Ewww that’s too big.” or “Her marriage will fail like Kim Kardashian’s.” … I don’t know. 

    I understand some people might not like their music style, but to openly shit all over them? Come on.

    I happen to like Nickelback, don’t hate, but I LOVE your poll options.

    @mrsbruff2b:  This is going to sound so hipster…but, I’ll say it…

    I was hating on Nickelback before it was cool!

    haha. Okay, now that that’s out of the way.

    I think that when you have an art that you’re bringing into the public eye, when you’re making music or whatever art you want to substitute here, you run the risk of being judged by those who don’t like the music you’re making.

    In Nickelback’s case, it was just one song.  Revamped with slightly different words and themes, but with those same 3 power chords. I did like Avril in middle school, but she spoke to my angsty-mainstream-but-wanting-to-be-non-conformist 13-year-old self. 😛

    But yea, I don’t feel bad for ripping on them for making terrible music.  That comes with the territory.  I do think comments about the ring are silly.  “Ew” doesn’t even make sense to me, but, you know, to each their own. I do prefer smaller diamonds, but it’s not my ring.

    And, in all honesty, hooray for Chavril – I hope they work out and are happy.

    ETA: I feel dirty for using “art” to refer to their music.
