A-Sides with Jon Chattman: Sum 41's Deryck Whibley on New Album, Tour, and His Own Mortality; "Lose Control" with KOPPS' Song Premiere
Huffington Post - 2 months
If you've followed Sum 41 over the last few years you know just how close frontman Deryck Whibley came to leaving us. I won't go into specifics because it's been so well documented (Google it if you will). Instead, I'd rather focus on the singer and the band's recent resurgence. Last fall, the band released their first album in five years entitled 13 Voices and it was met with arguably the best reviews in the pop punk band's career. For Whibley, it's easily his most personal work. He recorded, produced, and engineered the album in his Los Angeles home, and wrote it immediately following his four-month stint in the hospital. As he stated in the press release, "I had to learn how to do everything again-my motor skills, learning how to play guitar again... I couldn't even walk at the time. It was really difficult, but at the same time if I didn't have a record to make, I don't think I would have recovered as quickly, or even at all. Writing music gave me a purpose. I had to get be ...

Avril Lavigne's Ex-Husband Deryck Whibley Drops <em>Her</em> Last Name 3 Years After Divorce
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Deryck Whibley is no longer Deryck Jason Lavigne Whibley. Three years after he finalized his divorce from Canadian pop star Avril Lavigne, who has since remarried Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger, Whibley filed a petition to legally drop her last name. He had adopted the surname as one of his middle names after they tied the knot in 2006, reports TMZ. Whibley and Lavigne filed for divorce in 2009; Lavigne remarried this past July, which perhaps prompted the Sum 41 singer to finally let go of the last vestige of his marriage to the "Compicated" singer. And though it wasn't that long ago that Lavigne and her ex were believed to have a good relationship post-divorce, the fact that Whibley and his girlfriend, Ari Cooper, dressed up as Lavigne and Kroeger for Halloween in 2012 speaks volumes.

Avril Lavigne's Ex-Husband Looks ... Different
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
It's been a while since we've seen Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley, and he's looking different these days. The 33-year-old was spotted out with his girlfriend Ari Cooper at the Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers show at the Fonda Theater in Los Angeles on June 6, and we have to say we almost didn't recognize him. The last time we heard from Whibley, who divorced Avril Lavigne in 2011, he had to pull out of the band's Canadian tour supporting the band Billy Talent, because the singer had re-injured his back. Whibley's back problems caused the group to pull out of their 2011 dates on Warped Tour and a British tour in early 2012 with doctors warning him at the time he "could be in a wheelchair." Yes, getting older is no fun at all. (From left to right: Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley in April 2011, and again in June 2013)

PHOTOS: Five Singers You Should Never Dress Up As
Huffington Post - over 4 years
It's that magical time of year once again, where the entire nation leaves the house looking ridiculous on purpose! Yay! Occasionally, Halloween costumes based on musicians border on genius -- like Sum 41's Deryck Whibley and his girlfriend Ari Cooper hitting a party a few days ago dressed like Deryck's ex-wife, Avril Lavigne and her new fiance, the ever-hateable Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger. Ballsy, hilarious and quite the statement, we applaud this wholeheartedly. Sadly though, dressing up like most musicians is usually incredibly boring and obvious. Here are some singers you absolutely, positively, should not even think about dressing up as for that party tonight.

LOOK: Avril Lavigne's Ex Mocks Her, Chad Kroeger On Halloween
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Avril Lavigne and ex-husband Deryck Whibley might have split up three years ago, but that doesn't mean that Whibley can't turn to his ex for some inspiration -- Halloween costume inspiration, that is. Whibley and his girlfriend, model Ari Cooper, paid homage to Lavigne and her fiance, Nickelback singer Chad Kroeger, this Halloween by dressing up as the newly engaged couple. Whibley donned the quintessential elements of Lavigne's style -- a hoodie and heavy black eyeliner. He wore a wig of long blond hair, with a neon green streak for good measure. Cooper grabbed a Jack Daniels T-shirt and facial hair for her best Kroeger impression. "Talk about storming through a party like your name was El Niño!" joked Entertainment Weekly's Hillary Busis about the Sum 41 singer's cheeky get-up. Not everyone thought it was so funny, namely Chad Kroeger. Kroeger was none too pleased with Whibley's Halloween costume and made sure the '90s punk rocker knew it. Hey Der ...

"The Best Damn Thing," indeed! When Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger, 37, asked singer Avril Lavigne, 27, to be his wife on August 8, the "Photograph" rocker presented the punk rock princess with a dazzling 14-carat diamond engagement ring. PHOTOS: Zoom in on Hollywood's biggest engagement rings! According to jewelry expert Michael O'Connor, the bauble is worth an estimated $350,000. "A pear shape diamond set in platinum is a nod to vintage glamour and individuality -- perfect for a rocker like Avril," O'Connor tells Us Weekly.

Avril Lavigne Engaged To Chad Kroeger
The Huffington Post - over 4 years
Avril Lavigne is engaged to Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger, according to People.com. The pair, who have been quietly dating for six months, got together while working on Lavigne's latest album. The twosome became engaged on Aug. 8, when Kroeger, 37, presented the 27-year-old singer with a 14-carat diamond ring. Lavigne, whose marriage to Sum 41 frontman, Deryck Whibley, ended in 2009, was recently rumored to be dating Marilyn Manson (who quickly quashed those stories) and also dated Kardashian step-brother Brody Jenner. After being a very public couple for nearly two years, and getting some tattoos to pledge their love to one another, they split in early 2012, not long before Lavigne and Kroeger started working together.

Beleb Dirty Laundry - about 5 years
After thanking her fans for their support on her current tour, Avril Lavigne debuted a video for “Goodbye.” “Here it is my Little Black Stars! My special video to thank you for an amazing Goodbye Lullaby year! Love you guys! xo,” she writes on her Website. Filmed in Los Angeles at the Chateau Marmont by her friend Mark Liddell, the video begins with Lavigne entering an empty apartment. Dressed in a chic leopard print coat, the video follows Lavigne going through her suitcases to pick out the perfect outfit for the evening for someone who never shows up. The mostly black and white video demonstrates Lavigne’s more sensitive side as she is left alone on the floor crying at the end of the night. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Lavigne asserts that her latest release, Goodbye Lullaby was not a breakup album. The album was produced by her ex-husband, Deryck Whibley of Sum 41. “Deryck is the most talented person I know. He produced, mixed, played guitar and bass,” she said. “ ...
