There are some Hollywood hook-ups that totally make sense—the Barbie and Ken pop pairings like Jessica and Nick or Britney and Justin, the we’re-simply-too-beautiful-for-anyone-else Tinseltown twosomes like Angie and Brad, the perfectly paired comedic couples like Amy Poehler and Will Arnett—but then there are those head-scratcher Hollywood hook-ups, those kooky celeb couples that simply make us all go “What the?!” From recent additions like the newly engaged Avril Lavigne and Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger to odd golden oldies like MJ and Lisa Marie, there are the 10 Hollywood hook-ups that seriously caught us by surprise.
Avril Lavigne & Chad Kroeger
It’s not all that complicated, we suppose. They do have a lot in common—they’re both Canadian, they’re both rockers, they both make awful music that you can’t get out of your head for days—but when we heard news that the punk-lite pop princess and the Nickelback frontman were engaged, it completely caught us off-guard, if simply for the fact that we didn’t even know they were dating! Lavigne has prior experience marrying Canadian rockers—her ex-hubby is Sum 41 frontman Deryk Whibley—but let’s hope this marriage turns out better than her last one!
