There are few words to describe how I felt last night when I heard about the upcoming nuptials of Canadians Avril Lavigne and Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger. I hazily remember feeling shocked and even manically excited, which sometimes happens when I’m scared and confused.
Lavigne, 27 and Kroeger, 37 were collaborating in February for her upcoming fifth studio album and told very few people about their relationship. After six months of dating People says he proposed with a 14-karat diamond ring.
Post after-shock, people are finally emerging from the corners of their bathrooms where they locked themselves, crying on the floor. Many took to Twitter with astute comments and questions about the relationship.
Here are some common reactions:
The hypochondriac – “Is it contagious?”
Serious media concerns — “Where were they when we needed them?”
Positive thinking — “They’re doing us a favour.”
Apocalypse — “Honey, prepare the sound proof bomb shelter.”
International relations — “Where does this put Canada on the world stage?” Read more…
THIS IS FACT. Miley Cyrus announced her engagement to longtime boyfriend Liam Hemsworth, which is upsetting for their legions of fans who legitimately thought they had a chance with the celebrities. Personally, I really thought we had something Liam, I did.
“I’m so happy to be engaged and look forward to a life of happiness with Liam,” Cyrus told People magazine.
Hemsworth proposed to her on May 31 with a 3.5-carat diamond ring. Then on June 6 she sent out a blissful, though at the time slightly confusing, tweet. It’s all coming together now:
life is beautiful
— Miley Ray Cyrus (@MileyCyrus) June 6, 2012
This is definitely a case of underage and engaged as Miley is only 19 and Liam is 22, (BTW this makes me feel old) but when you think about it, she’s been a working woman for years now. The couple have been dating for three years, since meeting on the set of “The Last Song” in 2009.
There are no details about their unscheduled wedding and the pair are pretty damn busy in the meantime anyway. Cyrus is working on her fourth studio album and Hemsworth is filming the movie “Empire State” in New Orleans.
I’d ask: “What do you think? Will they last?” But ultimately, it’s not any of our business so we’d just like to pass along our congratulations to the couple!! CONGRATS.
Engagement rumours were already swirling but now they’re heating up even more, after Bobbi Kristina Brown was spotted wearing an engagement ring.
The late singer Whitney Houston’s 19-year-old daughter was photographed in Atlanta over the weekend with her “adopted brother” Nick Gordon, wearing a big rock on her ringfinger. Although Gordon was never formally adopted by Houston, he was taken in by the family several years ago as an alternative to joining the army.
Still… the ring’s certainly not going to stop the rumours.
It’s not a huge surprise to hear that Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose are making it official and getting hitched. The 24-year-old Grammy nominated rapper and model have been dating for a little over a year and have talked about marriage in the past.
The newly engaged couple broke the news on Twitter with a picture of her
bling ring. Rose tweeted “He has made me the Happiest Woman in the world!!!!!”
Wiz Khalifa also tweeted: “She said Yes!!”
Then the duo received tons of congratulatory responses, including one from fellow rapper Mac Miller, who can already foresee wild wedding pastries.
No! Of course Selieber (read: Selena and Justin) are not engaged. That was a trending topic today after Selena Gomez posted a photo of a sparkling ring with a diamond-encrusted “J”on it and the accompanying message “I’m finally home : )”
A promise ring? Maybe, but an engagement ring it is certainly not. We’re guessing the J stands for Justin Bieber, but what do we know? The rumour comes only a month after the gossip mills speculated an engagement just last December. They’re a little too young anyway, considering Selena is 19 and Justin is 18.
Big buzz hit the internet earlier this week when Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and screen star boyfriend Jason Statham stepped out with an extra little accessory – a HUGE rock on Whiteley’s ring finger!
Many speculated that the older action hero finally popped the question, but Whitely took time to dispel the rumors, stating “no, that’s not an engagement ring.”
Well then why would you wear it on your RING finger?! Silly girl!
Though Statham is getting on in years, Whiteley is only 23, so there’s no harm in the couple waiting a bit before getting hitched.
False alarm! We guess everyone loves a little attention every once in a while!
Radar Online is reporting that the Hef popped the question to Crystal Harris, a 24-year-old and Playboy’s Miss January, on Christmas. The magazine tycoon took to his Twitter account to announce the happy news.
“When I gave Crystal the ring, she burst into tears. This is the happiest Christmas weekend in memory,” Hefner microblogged.
The 84-year-old did not mention a set date or location for the ceremony, but we imagine Crystal is already eagerly planning away. After all, why delay a wedding to an octogenarian gazillionaire with dozens of girlfriends who look exactly like you?
Fourth times the charm, right Hef?
Amidst stern denials of romance, Milo Ventimiglia has reportedly bought “Heroes” co-star Hayden Panettiere an 18 karat gold ring.
According to “In Touch,” the Tiffany & Co. ring is worth $1,950 and Ventimiglia had it inscribed with the words “Sweet like Hayden.”
The belated birthday gift from 30-year-old Ventimiglia to 18-year-old Panettiere may very well be a platonic gift between friends, but it’s not going to help them avoid those pesky rumours.
Based on the well constructed previews and “talk” surrounding this long-awaited film I highly anticipated seeing a sequel worth seeing to a film that was a big fan of in, “The Ring”. However much to my dismay “The Ring 2″ did not live up to the hype, nor did it reign supreme to its predecessor. Throughout it seemed to lack what made the original so frightfully intense and uniquely scary. Without giving away too much information, and to answer a question that I have heard many inquire, I will say that one could very easily see this film without seeing the first so no worries. I would recommend seeing the original mainly for the simple fact of having a basis of history of the story and characters.
With that said, “The Ring 2″ follows young reporter Rachel (played again by Naomi Watts) and her son Aidan (David Dorfman) as they move from the big city to suburbia in hopes of escaping their recently plagued past. 6 months after the incidents involving a mysterious tape that kills you in 7 days; it appears as though they would never be haunted by Samara again. Nothing could be further from the truth as one night a homicide is reported with similar makings of a death all too familiar to Rachel. The tape as it seems has resurfaced, and now it is up to Rachel and Aidan to destroy it before Samara destroys them.
There are many unanswered questions when the film is all said and done. Hideo Nakata (Ringu, Ringu 2) did an exceptional job creating an eerie and unsettling atmosphere but that?s where the scares ended. ?Ring 2? lacked what made the first film so great: the audience did not know what to expect. This story was unfortunately predictable and dull with absolutely no connections to the original. It was almost a new plot with the same characters meaning that it could not be considered a proper sequel, thus similar to the format of say?the Indiana Jones Trilogy, where each film followed new guidelines. I found myself pondering throughout various flaws in plot structure, as many situations were left without closure or reason. On a positive note, the acting was well done considering the genre, and we got to see a more diverse Aidan and much more Samara. Sissy Spacek was a scene stealer in her brief cameo and Naomi Watts proved she could carry another film and was again not hard on the eyes.
Tim?s Take: The main problem I had going into this film was that I went in with high expectations; therefore my disappointment factor was high. If you are easily scared, then this film will meet your needs. If you are looking to find new scares bigger than the first film, you are in for a night of frustration.
