Fugger: Avril Lavigne

Fugs and Fabs: Grammy Pre-Parties

It’s not that the Grammys never end; it’s that we cope with them in REVERSE. It’s like turning back time. CHER! WHERE ARE YOU? WE’RE DOING IT!

Avrilly Played, Avril Lavigne

Well, we had the Spanish royal couple earlier in the week, and now we have Canada’s.

Oh, Canada, I’m just kidding. I tease because I love. Regardless, here are Avril Lavigne and Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger, otherwise known as FM Radio In 2002, wandering our of a radio interview. Avril of that year would look at Current Avril and be pretty annoyed that she’s not wearing a tutu and not NEARLY enough pink, but would count as victories the colored streaks, the braids, and the teenage tendency to hang her head and hide half her face behind her hair. (Chad Kroeger of 2002 would probably look at this and be like, “I MARRIED SK8ER BOI???”) I don’t know that I have an opinion on any of it exactly, except that Avril looks both more normal than I expected and still very dated, like she is convinced this is all a weird sex dream and it’s really still 2005. But it’s a very slow Hump Day in Hollywood, so we might as well chat it up and talk about how Sk8er Boi is secretly great for the treadmill and Nickelback is… also something that happened.

Edited to add that I had forgotten every Nickelback song I ever heard, and now, ten minutes after writing this post, I have one in my head and IT WILL NOT STOP. It is not an earworm; it’s a mind parasite.

Fugs, Fabs and Fines: MuchMusic Awards

Oh, Canada. Here’s a philosophical question for you: If there’s a Canadian music awards and Carly Rae Jepsen isn’t there, did it really happen? Or is the role of CRJ being played by Avril Lavigne, in some kind of Student Becomes the Master Becomes the Student weird switcheroo? Now that I think about it, maybe I want to see an ABC Family movie where CRJ and Avril switch bodies. Imagine what will happen to old Nickelback.

Fugloween 2012

Here are two things I’ve learned from doing postings this Halloween: 1) I am pretty sure Chris Brown’s costume is going to make your head explode, and b) I’d best not even try to ID most of these costume for fear of angering Fug Nation when I get it wrong. Some folks are REALLY disgusted that I happen not to have seen Moonlight Kingdom. It’s like I personally knifed them, just because I can’t watch or get to the movies as much as I’d like. Please forgive, Fug Nation. I hate it when we fight. At LEAST wait until I can acquire and don some leggings as pants, so that your disappointment can be complete.

Avril LaFug

Is she still going to be doing this when she’s 45? Will it come around to being charming again when she’s 70?

It’s Fugplicated

By now, you may have heard that Canada’s most beloved musical children, Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger of Nickelback, are randomly betrothed. Presumably she will walk up the aisle to a k.d. lang song, Bryan Adams will officiate, Celine Dion will descend from the heavens on a swing to sing them out of the church, and then the Crash Test Dummies will play the first-dance song before ceding the stage to the Barenaked Ladies. Sorry, Smash Mouth, no soup for you.

Also, the whole affair simply must be costumed by her clothing line, which means it’ll look like a Hot Topic threw up on 1997. I can’t wait.
