Looks like being slammed by the Internet can't rain on her parade!

On Sunday night, Avril Lavigne was all smiles when she caught a flight to Brazil out of LAX. Maybe she hasn't heard about everyone hating her new song?

For the international flight, the Canuck wore black pants, a black Gotham hoodie, flip flops and a beanie. She added a fierce accessory with her leopard-print backpack.

Last week, critics and fans panned Avril's new Harajuku-inspired music video, "Hello Kitty," for being racist and catering to Asian stereotypes. From the dancing girls to the dubstep-infused beats, we think the whole thing is just bad news. Oh Avril -- why'd ya have to make things so complicated?

FIRST PHOTOS - Inside Look At French Chateau Where Avril Lavigne Wed

Jul 2, 2013 01:55 PM


Oh la la! Rockers Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger sure have sophisticated taste when it comes to choosing a wedding destination.

The couple wed in the South of France on Monday, opting for the 14th century castle Chateau de la Napoule for the ceremony and reception. Located in the cozy, coastal town of Mandelieu about 30 minutes west of Cannes, the fortress boasts stunning courtyards, picturesque ocean views, and lush gardens.

Sources in France tell us that Avril and Chad's ceremony commenced at 8 p.m. and the reception and dinner ended at 6 a.m. on Tuesday. About 50 of the singers' closest friends and family attended the destination wedding. The duo said their "I dos" in a courtyard with views of the coastline just outside of the castle. Guests later watched fireworks over the sea. The newlyweds viewed the spectacle atop a balcony.

In addition to acting as a luxe location for weddings, corporate events, and other private parties, the historic landmark triples as a museum and artistic retreat.

The La Napoule Art Foundation is a non-profit organization that promotes art and nurtures artistic talent. Its artist residency program provides aspiring artists with a space to develop and display their work. Meanwhile, the foundation's arts center partners with universities across the world to host master classes and workshops. LNAF holds exhibitions, community outreach programs, and children's art programs in the U.S. as well.

The medieval castle was restored in 1914 by New Yorkers Henry and Marie Clews. The lovebirds spent 17 years transforming the building -- adding a gate house, tall ramparts, seaside terraces, and acres of gardens -- until it became the art retreat of their dreams.

Based on their style choices, they're a match made in heaven!

Avril Lavigne and her rocker fiance Chad Kroeger arrived at LAX today, and the couple looked almost identical in matching sunglasses and leather jackets. We wonder if they coordinated their outfits?!

The "Complicated" singer must have hair extensions, because she has some of the longest tresses in Hollywood!

The Canadian songstress appeared on Access Hollywood today and dished all about falling in love with her Nickelback front man beau.

"I had said I want to date someone 10 years older than me and he's exactly 10 years older. He's got it together, he's mature, he's done his thing, he's lived his life. He's been around the world on tour, I've been around the world on tour. We can really relate over a lot of things and we really just bonded over music and songwriting," she gushed to host Billy Bush.

That sounds like a slight swipe at ex-husband Deryck Whibley!

Nickelback sunglasses concert Nothing like an Internet fight between two washed up rockers over a washed up pop princess!

Chad Kroeger is currently in Russia with his band Nickelback, where they put on a concert and held a press conference yesterday, but that doesn't mean he stays out of the drama back in the States!

The Canadian rocker and his fiance Avril Lavigne were mocked this past weekend by the "Complicated" singer's ex-husband Deryck Whibley, who decided to dress up as the engaged pair with his girlfriend Ari Cooper, and apparently Mr. Kroeger didn't find their costumes too amusing!

Avril's man fired back at the Sum 41 front man on Twitter, writing, "Hey Deryck loved the costumes! we were going to dress up as you guys this year but all the parties had celebrity themes haha! -CK."

Well, hey, at least this feud makes all the people involved slightly relevant again!

Avril Lavigne's rep has confirmed that the 27-year-old singer is engaged to Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger, 37.

While the couple haven't publicly commented on their relationship, Lavigne did tweet back in February that the two were working on her upcoming album together (she posted the pic below and wrote "Bro'ing out with Chad Kroeger in the studio"), and today she re-tweeted a congratulatory message from his bandmates.

Kroeger reportedly presented the Canadian singer with a 14-carat diamond engagement ring on August 8. "He makes her so happy," a source tells People magazine. "Both of their families could not be more excited."

This will be Lavigne's second marriage and Kroeger's first. She filed for divorce from Sum 41 rocker Deryck Whibley in October of 2009 after three years of marriage, and in January she split reality star Brody Jenner after two years of dating.
