A couple of weeks ago we learned that Canadian rocker and Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger got himself engaged to be married to Canadian popstar Avril Lavigne, seemingly out of nowhere. At the time that news of this engagement was revealed, there were a lot of cringing looks of chagrin all over the place … even, apparently, from Kroeger himself. In a new interview, Chad admits that he was embarrassed to tell his mother of his engagement to Avril Lavigne … a feeling that I think MANY of us can understand. Yikes!
After a nine month whirlwind romance, Nickleback frontman, Chad Krueger is now happily engaged to popstar Avril Lavigne, who he has not even introduced to his parents yet. And while some people may find it embarrassing that his future wife hasn’t met her prospective in-laws yet, Krueger was more red-faced by the fact that his mother is a huge fan of Lavigne’s music. He said: ”You never know what your parents are going to say when you tell them you’re getting married – especially when it’s with someone they haven’t met yet. My mom is a huge fan of Avril’s, so putting her on speakerphone and telling her the news was hilarious and equally embarrassing.” He added: ”I find [going back home] almost as terrifying as telling your parents you’re going to tie the knot. You just never know when someone is going to come out of the woodwork with a story that’s starts with, ‘Let me tell you about the time…’”
LOL! If Chad was embarrassed to tell his parents about his engagement to Avril, can you imagine how she must’ve felt telling her parents that she is marrying the lead singer of Nickleback? LORD! There is PLENTY of embarrassment to go around. And then there’s us, the general public, our secondhand embarrassment cannot be taken for granted. Just a whole lotta YIKES! all around.
