Does Sum 41’s music ruin the movies it is in?
May 31st, 2021 under Sum 41. [ Comments: none ]

Sum 41’s Deryck Whibley and Dave Baksh were recently on SiriusXM’s Pop Rocks, and they talked about seeing their music on the big screen.

Whitley said that when he heard In Too Deep in American Pie, he felt that it ruined the party scene in the film. Baksh added, “That is the thing about this band…We were supposed to be a part of Zoolander…We saw the scene we were supposed to be a part of, and we were like, we are going to ruin this scene.”

Why do they feel that way? “I don’t know if Jerry Finn [their late music producer] got into our heads, and the self-depreciation just reached a whole new level, ” Baksh said. “Every time we see our song, and we are together in a room, and we see it in a movie, we are just like, ‘man, we don’t know if this fits.'”

I think their music fits everything. Well, maybe not a love scene, but everything else.

After weeks of rumors that Sum 41’s Deryck Whibley and Avril Lavigne are headed for a divorce, Us Weekly says a source has confirmed the news to them.

“She dumped him and told him she was leaving him. She wants to move on,” a source tells the new Us Weekly, adding that Lavigne, 25, forced him out of their $9.5 million, 12,00-square-foot estate in L.A.’s Bel Air. “Divorce papers will be filed any day now.”

I am kind of bummed that their 3 year marriage is coming to an end because I thought these two Canadian rockers were going to make it. But then again she was only 21 when she got married and that is too young to settle down.
BTW the ? will stay on until they confirm the news or when one of them files divorce papers as Us says they will.

UPDATE: Avril Lavigne confirms the split on her MySpace blog.

Moving forward on a positive note
Deryck and I have been together for 6 and a half years. We have been friends since I was 17, started dating when I was 19, and married when I was 21. I am grateful for our time together, and I am grateful and blessed for our remaining friendship. I admire Deryck and have a great amount of respect for him. He is the most amazing person I know and I love him with all my heart. Deryck and I are separating and moving forward on a positive note.

Thank you to all my family, friends and fans for all your support.



Avril marries her sk8r man!
July 16th, 2006 under Avril Lavigne, Sum 41, Weddings. [ Comments: none ]

Pop star Avril Lavigne wed Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley at Villa Lilybelle, a private estate in Montecito, California, on Saturday afternoon.
The Catholic ceremony began at 5pm and lasted only 20 minutes. An orchestra played “The Wedding March” as Lavigne walked down the aisle on the arm of her father John.”Avril looked beautiful! Her hair was very bright blonde. Her dress was simple, but elegant,” a witness tells Us. After the groom kissed the bride, guests flung rose petals on the newlyweds as they traipsed up the aisle. “Attendees cheered with excitement, and were so stoked for the newlyweds,” says the witness.
Lavigne, 21, wore a Vera Wang custom-made ivory strapless tissue organza gown with wrapped bodice and appliqué lace beaded skirt. After the ceremony, the bride changed into a Vera Wang ivory strapless draped Chantilly lace gown. Lavigne’s bridesmaids wore Vera Wang draped petal pink crepe chiffon gowns. Whibley and his five groomsmen wore tuxes from the Boss Black collection by Hugo Boss.The wedding, coordinated by wedding planner to the stars Mindy Weiss, was outfitted with hundreds of white roses. The expansive pink Spanish villa featured a large pond complete with white swans. There were a little over 100 guests in attendance, mostly close friends and family (no celebrities).Both rockers hail from Ontario, Canada, and were friends for several years before they began dating in 2004. Whibley, 26, proposed to Lavigne in Venice, Italy, in June 2004 while she was on tour in Europe. It is the first marriage for both.
“I might look like a tough chick – and I am – but I’m also a hopeless romantic inside,” Lavigne has said.

I hope this one lasts! 


Avril and Deryk’s wedding any day?
July 5th, 2006 under Avril Lavigne, Sum 41, Weddings. [ Comments: none ]

Avril Lavigne and Deryck Whibley have apparently sped up their wedding plans.

Etalk reports that a California ceremony is imminent for the punk princess and the Sum 41 frontman.
Friends and family of the pair were reportedly notified days ago of the plan and told to book their tickets immediately for Santa Barbara, where the Canadian rockers have a house together.
Earlier reports had suggested the wedding would take place Aug. 26, but media scrutiny apparently spurred the couple to move up the date.
Lavigne’s publicist Sean Cordner would not confirm the reports.
"I cannot comment on the personal lives of our artists," said Cordner.
The Insider website reports that Lavigne’s bridal shower was last Friday. The racy gifts were said to include a sexy red bra, a thong and some handcuffs.
Other reports suggest wild days may soon be over for the Complicated songstress and her party boy fiance Whibley, once linked to Paris Hilton.
Lavigne, 21, of Napanee, Ont., and Whibley, 26, of Toronto, are said to have put a nursery in their home.
