Avril + Chad Kroeger. Prince Harry naked. Elton John with a Bel Ami porn star. All the WTF is happening RIGHT NOW.— Keith Caulfield (@keith_caulfield) August 22, 2012
Here are the stories referenced in the Tweet above:
Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger of Nickelback are engaged to be married!
Avril Lavigne and Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger’s relationship has been so quiet that few even knew they were dating. Now, after a six-month courtship, the Canadian rockers are engaged to be married, Lavigne’s rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.
Lavigne, 27, and Kroeger, 37, first got together in February to co-write a song for Lavigne’s upcoming fifth studio album.
"A romantic relationship blossomed as they spent time writing together," a Lavigne pal tells PEOPLE.
On Aug. 8, Kroeger popped the question, presenting Lavigne with a 14-carat diamond sparkler.
"He makes her so happy," a family source tells PEOPLE. "Both of their families could not be more excited."
It will be Kroeger’s first trip down the aisle, and the second marriage for Lavigne, who split from Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley in 2009. She had also dated Brody Jenner.
Prince Harry was caught naked at a Las Vegas party after playing a game of strip billiards…
Prince Harry put the crown jewels on display in Vegas this weekend … getting BARE ASS NAKED during a game of strip billiards with a room full of friends in his VIP suite.Some of the partiers snapped photos of the madness. In one photo, a fully nude Harry cups his genitals while a seemingly topless woman stands behind him. In another photo, a naked Harry is bear-hugging a woman who appears to be completely naked as well. No word on who the women are … or if they got Harry’s phone number.A rep for the Royal Family tells us, “We have no comment to make on the photos at this time.”
It all went down Friday night during a raging party in a high rollers hotel suite.
We’re told Harry, along with a large entourage, went down to the hotel bar and met a bunch of hot chicks … and invited them up to his VIP suite.
Once in the room, things got WILD … with the group playing a game of strip pool that quickly escalated into full-on royal nudity.
Elton John brings a Bel Ami gay porn star with him on a French Riviera getaway…
Sir Elton John has certainly had a ball in St. Tropez this season: He mooned some passersby last week and welcomed A-list power gays Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka and their progeny.
John also hosted some particularly tanned, toned and toothsome lads in the South of France, including Bel Ami star Dolph Lambert (far right in the photo above), whose blue movies include Lemonade, More Than You Can Handle and Anytime, Anywhere.
The strapping young buck gets paid to have sex with the world’s hottest guys and he vacays with Elton? Nice work if you can get it. (Maybe Sir Reg makes Lambert babysit baby Zachary?)
Meanwhile, poor Andy Cohen and Kelly Ripa are likely hammered 12 hours a day just to get through Anderson Cooper griping over Benjamin Maisani on their Croatian getaway.
Apparently Elton is a longtime connoisseur of Bel Ami’s beefcake orchards, having thrown exclusive parties for the young men when he performs in Bratislava.
Well, wouldn’t you?
