Avril Lavigne's ex-husband Deryck Whibley had the best Halloween costume at his party: He went as Avril Lavigne. The Sum 41 singer went as his former wife of two years while his new girlfriend, model Ari Cooper, went as Avril's current fiance, Chad Kroeger of Nickelback. It's the new swapping, y'all!
What does an Avril Lavigne costume even look like? Hoodie and neon green-streaked blond wig will do it, apparently. And for Chad Kroeger, you'll need a curly blond wig with rock 'n' roller outfit and facial hair, in case you don't grow your own.
Some may say this is the sour grapes of a bitter ex. I say it's brilliant.
I mean, why not go as your ex? Especially if you're going to a party where people actually know your ex, impersonating your former luvah could be hilarious. I may try it myself next year! Depending on how people feel about your ex, it could be another opportunistic way to garner sympathy and support. And as we head into the darker months of winter, who couldn't use a little more of that?
Okay, but seriously, I think Deryck did this with some humor, not with mean spiritedness. And by the way, Chad Kroeger noticed and tweeted a response: "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" Hah, good one. HuffPo called it a smackdown, but I would call it more passive-aggressive professional rivalry. Also? I think Ari's Chad costume could've been better. But Chad is pretty enough to pull off an Ari costume! Just a suggestion for next year.
Would you ever dress up as your ex for Halloween?
