Did Chad Kroeger Cheat On Avril Lavigne? Singer Partied With Ano
Chad Kroeger apparently moved on from his marriage to Avril Lavigne before the pair announced their split on Wednesday. A clubgoer spotted the Nickelback singer partying with another woman in Miami last month.

An insider told Us Weekly, "Chad came in with a woman and a security guard. He was down in the party pit by the stage, definitely out in clear, plain view — not in the private back VIP areas.

"He was saying that there aren’t that many places for him to go in Miami, he was happy to be there and be chill. He and the girl had a great time, they were dancing."

Avril Lavigne opens up about the devastating disease that kept her bedridden for months - and how she's fighting to recover -- in an exclusive interview in this week's issue of PEOPLE.

The singer, 30, finally reveals how a crippling case of Lyme disease changed her life forever: "I was scared for my life," she tells PEOPLE.

Avril Lavigne Bedridden For Months With Severe Case Of Lyme Dise
Avril Lavigne told a fan site last fall that she didn't have any new music coming out because she was having some "health issues," but she wouldn't reveal what they were because she wanted to keep things private.

The Canadian singer has now opened up in the new issue of People magazine, revealing that she a tick bite she got in the spring of 2014 gave her a severe case of Lyme disease that kept her bedridden for months.

"I was scared for my life... I felt like I couldn't breathe, I couldn't talk, and I couldn't move," she said. "I thought I was dying."

12 Songs Using The D-Word
No folks, we’re not talking about the closing track off of Toni Braxton & Babyface’s collaborative album Love, Marriage & Divorce. Nope, we’re referring to that earth shattering, intensifying baby curse word. Justin Bieber used it on his Believe album – albeit subtly on “Die In Your Arms” – to exercise his burgeoning manliness. Other artists use it for emphasis – a pronounced, less harsh variant on the f-bomb. Some truly terrific songs have embraced being ‘damnable’, so here’s a list that’ll have you “Feelin’ Way Too Damn Good” as you read it, Nickelback.

Avril Lavingne Suffering From Undisclosed Illness, Asks Fans To
Avril Lavigne has addressed the reason why she's kept herself out of the spotlight for several weeks, telling a fan over the weekend that she's having some "health issues.

The singer opened up about her illness with Twitter fan page @AvrilMusicChart when the owner of the page sent her a direct message asking her if she's working on new music because it's been "like two years" since she completed her last album (the self-titled album actually came out 13 months ago).

"I feel bad because I haven't been able to say anything to the fans to let them no why I've been absent," Avril replied. "I'...

A second round of stolen nude celebrity photos has hit the internet.

Highlighting the latest round of victims appears to be Kim Kardashian, Vanessa Hudgens, Lake Bell, Avril Lavigne, Leelee Sobieski, Hope Solo and apparently some new naked snaps of Jennifer Lawrence.

The photos allegedly started appearing early Saturday morning on Reddit and 4Chan according to UpRoxx but were quickly taken down from both sites. 4Chan sited copyright infringement as their reason, while pics posted on Reddit were just take down by site administrators.

Celebrities Who Have Dyed Their Hair Crazy Colors
Reality star Kylie Jenner dyed her hair partially blue last week, making a stir at the Billboard Music Awards. She arrived on the red carpet with her shoulder length-hair looking as though it had been dipped in an ice blue dye.

Her bold fashion decision wasn't exactly embraced by mom Kris Jenner, particularly since Kylie did it prior to her sister Kim Kardashian's upcoming wedding.

Jenner, 16, told E! News: "One day I was just like, 'I'm going blue'. They're all really p****d. My mom was like 'you look like a Skittle.' I was like, 'I'm gonna have this for two years now that you said that....

Miley Cyrus
These celebrities need an intervention - of the fashion kind. Either they look terrible and need help reinventing their images or they've had the same look for years and need to change it up a bit.

Miley Cyrus stunned fans in the summer of 2012 when she chopped off her famous "Hannah Montana" locks and dyed her hair platinum blonde. She made the bold move nearly two years ago, and we'd like to see her do something different again. She's a risk taker, so why not go red or brunette?

The singer has been traveling around for her "Bangerz" tour and has recently taken to raunchy stage antics wi...

Avril Lavigne has gotten a huge bump of support from Japanese officials over the video for her new single "Hello Kitty," which received lots of negative backlash and accusations of racism when it was released on Wednesday.

He even told that the Canadian singer "had good intentions when making" it.

Avril Lavigne Baffled After Her 'Hello Kitty' Video Is Labeled Racist

Avril Lavigne
There's no such thing as bad publicity, and Avril Lavigne is back in the spotlight again after some fans complained that her new music video "Hello Kitty" is racist.

In the promo, Lavigne prances around on a rooftop, in a candy store, and in a sushi bar as four expressionless Asian girls pose as her backup dancers, exaggerating Japan's kawaii (cute) culture.

Some critics accused the pop star of perpetuating racial sterotypes, and the hashtag #avrilracist became a trending topic on Twitter.

One user wrote: "Not sure if this Avril Lavigne video is terrible, racist, or terribly racist", whi...

Review: Avril Lavigne Redeems Herself On Self-Titled Fourth Album

11/8/2013 1:30pm EST
Avril Lavigne
“I’mma keep it real from the jump,” as Drake would rap. Avril Lavigne’s previous effort, 2011’s Goodbye Lullaby was not her crowning achievement, no questions asked.  Goodbye Lullaby had its moments, specifically with brash promo single “What The Hell” as well as “Smile”.  Otherwise though, it was merely average, particularly for a firecracker like Lavigne.  Avril Lavigne is definitely a bolder, more entertaining effort, evidenced from its opening intro on the opening track.  That isn’t to label this effort as valedictory (it’s not perfect by any meand), but there are plenty of strong showi...

Avril Lavigne

While getting married usually slows people down, it has seemed to have awaken Avril’s inner “Mutherfreakin’ Princess.”

In Lavigne’s just-released new single, “Rock N Roll,” she proudly declares, “I am the motherfreakin’ princess.”

The upbeat, pop-punk song, the latest release from her forthcoming album, is a boisterous declaration of rebellion on which the 28-year-old Mrs. Chad Kroeger puts up her “middle finger to the sky” to “let ‘em know that we’re still rock and roll.”

Drake was nominated for 12 awards and landed only two of them, but they were big ones. Adding insult to injury, Brown's ex-girlfriend Rihanna was also a winner. (story)

Celebrities have a lot of fun with fashion at music-related award shows, often showing up in unusual or funky ensembles. Sunday night's Billboard Music Awards was no exception.

Selena Gomez rocked the blue carpet in a white gown with neon piping that included a strategically placed slit along the bodice that hinted at her curves.

Ke$ha donned a short little black dress that showed major side butt - a trend that's been building in popularity over the last year or so, peaking with Gwyneth Paltrow's dress at the "Iron Man 3" premiere.

Pop music couple Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger now have a permanent reminder of their love after going under the needle to get matching tattoos.

The Sk8er Boi singer announced her engagement to the Nickelback frontman last year and they have been busy planning their upcoming wedding.  Lavigne has now revealed they sealed their love by having matching body art inked during a romantic trip to Paris, France.

Avril Lavigne's New Single 'Here's To Never Growing Up' Is Catchy (Listen)

4/9/2013 2:49pm EDT
Pop princess Avril Lavigne has finally unveiled the lead single for her upcoming currently-untitled fifth studio album!

The single, titled “Here’s To Never Growing Up,” is about youth and having fun no matter how old you are. Just like the title suggests, the 28 year old Canadian singer vows to never change the way she is and “growing up”.

The upbeat anthemic song, with its pop-rock melody and catchy chorus that will definitely stick in its listeners’ heads, will probably do pretty well on the charts and I can foresee it becoming as big as, or maybe even bigger than Taylor Swift’s “We Are...

Ink-fatuation: 16 Celebrities Who Are Obsessed With Tattoos

Celebrity Tattoos
Thanks to celebs like Angelina Jolie and Megan Fox it seems like every celebrity under the age of 30 has an infatuation with getting tattoos; and many stars are beginning to stray from the typical images of flowers, butterflies, skulls, hearts and barbed wire (perhaps the lamest tattoo ever) to having words, phrases and book or poem exerpts permanently injected under their skin.

Some celebs have even gotten a bit obsessed with getting new ink on a regular basis -- most of them small tattoos -- but enough to become a makeup artist's nightmare for those in the acting business.

Nickelback rocker Chad Kroeger and his new fiancee Avril Lavigne became engaged less than eight weeks after they first started dating.

The "How You Remind Me" singer stunned fans last month by announcing he had proposed to Lavigne after a whirlwind romance.

Kroeger grew close to the pop punk earlier this year after teaming up with her in the recording studio, but it wasn't until July 1 that their relationship officially turned romantic, and the 37 year old admits the date will always have special meaning for the pair - because it falls on Canada's national day.
