Kelly Clarkson And Kat Von D Get Engaged: Time For Another Round Of Guess The Celeb Rock!

Guess the celebrity engagement ring

Everyone knows that the holiday season is one of the most romantic times of the entire year. We blame Love Actually. And now it looks like Christmas came early for famous ladies like Kelly Clarkson, Crystal Harris and Kat Von D as their beaus got them all a pretty sweet gift: An engagement ring! The trio all took to Twitter to give fans a glimpse of their new rocks. American Idol alum Clarkson flashed her bling backstage at VH1 DIVAs after boyfriend Brandon Blackstock popped the question over the weekend.

Top DJ Deadmau5 took the opposite approach and actually proposed to girlfriend Kat Von D on Twitter this Saturday! The on again off again couple reunited in November after breaking up in September, so we’ll see if the notoriously tempestuous two-some make it to the alter. But we saved our biggest reservations for Crystal Harris, who showed off her second engagement ring from Hugh Hefner last week. Why second, you ask? Because she sold her first one after she left the 86-year-old at the alter last year. Ooof. Good luck, you crazy kids. With all these engagements in the air, we thought it was time for another round of Guess The Celeb Rock. Head on down to the gallery below and test your ring knowledge! Get the answers under the jump.

Katie And Tom, Will And Amy, And Too Many More: The 20 Saddest Star Splits Of 2012

Love is a battlefield, and 2012 was not immune the heart’s harsh ways. Celebrity relationships had a tough go at things this year and saw a record number of sad splits (Amy Poehler and Will Arnett), shocking divorces (Heidi Klum and Seal) and close-call almost breakups (Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson). But 2012 also saw a few reconciliations (Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez), giving us hope for 2013. Browse through our gallery of the 20 biggest breakups of 2012 and tell us which split was the most devastating to watch.

Justin Bieber, Ryan Gosling, Celine Dion, Avril Lavigne And Maybe All Other Famous Canadians Are Related

Justin Bieber, Avril Lavigne, Ryan Gosling and Celine Dion are distant cousins, according to Ancestry.com

Americans, do you ever feel that impulse, when you meet a Canadian, to ask if they know another Canadian you know? Yeah, we have a lot of misconceptions about our neighbor to the north. For instance, I sometimes suspect that all Canadian famous people either once starred in Degrassi or are members of Arcade Fire. Now Ancestry.com is just adding fuel to our prejudices, by coming out with this discovery that Justin Bieber, Ryan Gosling and Avril Lavigne are 11th and 12th cousins, and that Bieber and Celine Dion are 10th cousins three times removed, according to the Associated Press. They’re all descendants of two French couples who came to Quebec in the 1600s.

This is kind of a great advertisement for Ancestry.com — more than those times when they prove that all politicians are somehow related to each other — because now we all want to find out if we’re somehow related to Ryan Gosling, and if we are, does that make it wrong to lust after him? (Oh, never mind, I have no French Canadian in me, phew!)

Also, the spokesperson for Ancestry gave this amazing quote, which is absolutely not what we were wondering: These findings are not “sufficient to point to the existence of a superstar gene.” Just an attractive person gene!

Avril Lavigne’s Horror Show Eye Shadow Joins The Pantheon Of Celeb Makeup Disasters

Avril Lavigne Makeup Disaster

We don’t even want to go into the hair. There just aren’t enough hours in the 24/7 news cycle to discuss the half-shaved pink-and-lime studded business sprouting from Avril Lavigne‘s scalp at her Abbey Dawn fashion show in New York last night. Plus we don’t want to have to admit that we kind of like it. What we don’t like, however, is the greasy conjunctivitis-chic Avril chose to smear around her peepers. We guess you’d call it a smokey eye, in as much as our eyes started billowing smoke the second we looked at it. While we’d argue that Avril’s hotness still manages to shine through, that is not the case with these other makeup disasters…

Chad Kroeger, Avril Lavigne Started Dating On Canada Day, And Other Extremely Canadian Things About Them

Chad Kroeger Discusses Avril Lavigne Engagement

Wow, these two. If Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy are our new American royalty, Nickelback‘s Chad Kroeger and Avril Lavigne are the Canadian crown prince and princess respectively. They’re…they’re not actually Canadian royalty, are they? That would be too perfect. In case we didn’t already associate the musical couple with the Great White North, Chad gave an People interview today where he made sure to remind us. “We think it’s very cool that our anniversary will always be on Canada Day,” he gushed. “We can’t wait to start our life together.” It’s like if Beyonce and Jay-Z got engaged on Independence Day! Then raved about it to People! Of course, the fact Avril and Chad wear their patriotism on their black, shredded t-shirt sleeves is only one example of how deeply Canadian this couple is. In case you need a few more…

Avril Lavigne, Chad Kroeger Engaged … And Very Good At Keeping A Secret

Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger engaged

Congrats are in order for Avril Lavigne and her new fiance, Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger. Not just for they’re engagement, but for managing to keep their six-month relationship totally on the DL. Seriously, we thought maybe she was still in that on-again-off-again thing with Brody Jenner — but it looks like their January breakup really stuck. According to People, fellow Canadians Chad, 37, and Avril, 27, worked together on a song in February. Her rep confirmed to the mag that Chad popped the question on August 8, with a 14-carat diamond ring. Lavigne was snapped at the Las Vegas Magic Fashion and Apparel convention yesterday, where she was promoting her Abbey Dawn line, and she wasn’t yet showing off the rock.

This will be Avril’s second marriage — she divorced Sum 41′s Deryck Whibley in 2009 — and the first for Kroeger. We’re now fascinated to hear the song that started this whole thing, so hopefully it makes the cut when Lavigne releases her next album.

Miley Cyrus Debuts Her Teddy Roosevelt Inspired Tattoo. Yup, Add That To Our List Of WTF Celebrity Ink

Miley Cyrus gets a Teddy Roosevelt tattoo

Ke$ha topped the list of our 20 Worst Celebrity Tattoos a few weeks back when she proudly displayed her inner lip ink reading “Suck It” on instagram. But now the dollar-signed-one might have some competition in Miley Cyrus, who was seen today showing off her new Theodore Roosevelt-inspired tattoo. We say “might,” because honestly we’re not sure how to feel about it. Body art inspired by our 26th president isn’t something we come across on a regular basis. On one hand, we guess it’s a pretty cool quote taken from a 1910 speech in which he said “So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.” But on the other hand…what? And furthermore, WTF? We know you’re just being Miley, but damn. Maybe she’s still feeling the patriotism from her 4th of July festivities. Head on down to the gallery below to see more celebrity tattoos that left us scratching our heads!

Ke$ha’s New Mouth Ink Tops Our 20 Worst Celebrity Tattoos

Ke$ha Mouth Tattoo

Ke$ha, you’ve won again. You always do. Though never with a disturbing orifice tattoo before. “New tattoo!” the singer proclaimed on Instagram, displaying both her new “Suck It!” inner lip tattoo and what appears to be a gold toof. While we need some time to wrap our heads around why and to what purpose Ke$ha would get the inside of her mouth inked (Is it a command? To whom? Is it a reminder? It’s a reminder, isn’t it?), we only needed to see the photo for a millisecond to crown her queen of the bad celebrity tattoos, joining the likes of Gucci Mane‘s ice cream cone face ink and Hayden Panettiere‘s misspelled torso tattoo.

Don’t feel bad, every other famous with an awful tattoo! We probably just don’t know about your mouth art yet. Let us know, please; it’s what Instagram is for. In the meantime, everyone else can take a gander at our worst celebrity tattoo gallery. With Ke$ha at the lead, it looks like ya’ll need to start upping your bad tattoo game…
