Avril Lavigne, Nylon Magazine

Brooke Nipar/Nylon Magazine

Avril Lavigne seems to have found her prince in Chad Kroeger.

In the June-July issue of Nylon, the 28-year-old bride-to-be opens up about her love for the Nickelback musician.

"He's nice, and real, and kind," she says. "For me, it's about having a connection on a deeper level. Be romantic!"

And if Chad ever stops being romantic, he'll hear about it. "I'm so transparent," Avril says. "If I'm not being myself, I won't do well, and that goes for writing songs, work, relationships, everything.  And if I'm not happy, people are going to know that."

We'll hear some of that realness on Avril's new album, due out sometime this summer. "Lyrically, I pushed myself to talk about different subjects I haven't talked about before," she explains. "I didn't want to be so simple. I tried to really express myself and go deeper."
