Jenna Michelle Kennedy And Stephen Barker Liles Engaged!

Jenna Michelle Kennedy And Stephen Barker Liles EngagedLove and Theft’s Stephen Barker Liles popped the question Tuesday night to longtime love Jenna Michelle Kennedy in Fort Myers, Fla., the singer tells PEOPLE exclusively.

‘Sunset dinner’

“I had one of my closest friends, Justin Ross Ward, drive down and set up cameras,” says Liles, 29, about the surprise proposal. “Jenna and I were planning on a sunset dinner at Fresh Catch Bistro, and I called ahead and told them … to say that the table wouldn’t be ready for 30 minutes so that we had to kill some time and walk on the beach.”


‘Be mine forever’

After convincing his bride-to-be to “take her wedges off,” the couple strolled to the beach, where Kennedy, 26, saw the cameras set up.

“[She] asked what they were doing, and I said, ‘Probably just watching the sunset!’ Then we walked closer and I got down on one knee and begged her to be mine forever,” says Liles, who adds that they both cried during the proposal.

The country crooner, who asked Kennedy’s mother and three siblings for their blessing last weekend, purchased his fiancée’s 2.34-ct. yellow center cut diamond ring from August Stephenson, a store owned by a childhood friend in Oldsmar, Fla.

They are planning a May 2014 wedding.

Chad Kroeger Talks About Engagement To Avril Lavigne

It’s been three weeks since Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger wowed the world with the happy news of their surprise engagement. But one person who isn’t paying attention to everyone else’s reaction is the Nickelback rocker himself.

“I try not to take too much interest in the world’s opinion of our relationship,” Kroeger, 37, tells PEOPLE. “I just know the both of us are very happy.”

Lavigne, 27, and Kroeger met earlier this year while collaborating on music for her forthcoming album. Their professional relationship took a turn this summer when they started dating on July 1 – which happens to be a special day for both Canadian megastars.


“We think it’s very cool that our anniversary will always be on Canada Day,” Kroeger says. “We can’t wait to start our life together.”

Before they walk down the aisle, Kroeger, whose band has sold more than 50 million records, will hit the road this month for a European tour with Daughtry. And he’s hoping to have his bride-to-be by his side for some of those dates.

Are you thrilled that the two most famous rockers of our time are going to get hitched soon? What do you think will be the theme of Chad Kroeger and Avril Lavigne’s wedding? Feel free to give us a holler in the comment box below!

Miley Cyrus Debuts New Very Bold Hair!

Miley Cyrus chopped off her hair Sunday night, documenting the cut in what started as a series of somewhat cryptic Tweets.

After posting a photo of stylist Chris McMillan about to cut off her very blonde bun, the singer wrote, “it’s happening,” followed by, “if you don’t have something nice to say don’t say anything at all. my hair is attached to my head no one else’s and it’s going bye bye.” Five hours later, the deed was done.

“Never felt more me in my whole life,” the bride-to-be wrote, after posting some shots of her sleek new pixie ‘do. “LOVE my hair. feel so happy, pretty, and free.”


During an interview with ABC several years ago, Cyrus seemingly foreshadowed Sunday night’s cut. “One day I’m going to cut my hair like [Twiggy], I know I am” she said, referencing a photo of the British model framed in her dressing room. “I will one day.”

The new look already has at least one anonymous fan; after Cyrus’s cut was complete, she wrote, “someone just told me im prettier than Miley Cyrus.”
