Avril Lavigne and Nickelback Dude: Five Musical Marriages That Might Be Worse

Page 2 of 2

Some went on to make terrible music together, some were destructive, others were just downright annoying. But in the end, it was all bad.

5. Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon

Nick Cannon made a name for himself playing an obnoxious teenager on the children's network Nickelodeon. Ten years after his first stint on All That he's just as obnoxious as ever and is married to R&B singer Mariah Carey. It's hard to knock Carey's body of work, but it's also hard to forget that she was a grown-ass woman rollerblading around theme parks while Cannon was wildin' out in high school hallways. Like Kroeger, Carey is 10 years older than her "better half," adding to the creep factor.

4. Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez

When two "singers" get together, collaborations are to be expected. In Lavigne and Kroeger's case, that's precisely how the two hooked up. Jennifer Lopez's vocal range however, has always proved to be limited without the help of studio magic, more than Anthony could muster, it seems. Unfortunately, this union didn't end fast enough, so we got "No Me Amas" and "Escapemonos."
