H.I.M. Frontman Ville Valo Engaged

Kerrang! reports: "It's a sad week for any ladies who lust after HIM frontman Ville Valo as the devilishly charming rocker has just got engaged to his long-time girlfriend Jonna Nygren. Ville proposed at the Finnish rock festival Ruisrock but instead of giving each other the customary engagement rings, the couple got their ring fingers tattooed with the letters 'DILLIGAF', which apparently stands for 'do I look like I give a fuck?'. How romantic. Congrats to the happy couple! Bet ville-stalker Bam Margera is gutted..."

You're right Dude. Absolutely right.

Anyways, congrats to him. As a member of the female gender I can say that I did NOT cry when I heard this. Anyone who does that is as bad as those who cried when Ben Affleck married that one chick. WHO CARES??!!

Congrats Ville Valo you must be over the moon, too bad for all of your lovers though, including me
*sobs* oh well. I hope you have a great marriage. But I have never seen who Jonna is anyway. You got some explaining to do Ville! But I'm happy for you both, Jonna you are some lucky woman. Just don't get cheeky you two. Lol.

Jonna is really pretty...makes you mad that most of his songs are about how bad love can be when his life is so good!!! And btw Burton aint free...he has Helena Bonham Carter and a child with her!!! Aww Ville being engaged is just cute...for some reason...clearly being in love wont affect the music as they've been going out for years! X x

yeah we'll all get over it but, im just a bit worried for Ville, i mean, what if she is only in it for the money and then breaks his heart..i mean, u know how it goes, sometimes ppl get married so they can devorce and take half the other partners earnings...what if that happened to ville...maybe he'd stop writing music :| no...he wouldnt...

You girls that are actually crying and worrying over this are f***ing pathetic.
If she does break his heart then it's his fault for not seeing that she's a golddigging b****.
And does it f***ing matter?
What Vile does out of the band shouldn't be any of your f***ing concern.
You don't know him and you'll probably never know him more than 5 minutes.
Grow up.

Yeah so he's hot and probably the coolest guy on the planet, but congrats to ville! It's his freakin' life and he can do whatever the f*** he wants! He's not exactly not gonna marry someone just because his fans don't want him to! And whoever cried over it....that's just pathetic.

HIM are my favourite band and I really admire Ville. I'm happy for him that he's finally got engaged and can start to have a family of his own and that, (he reckons he'd make a pretty good dad) and I think so too. I haven't seen a picture of Jonna but I hope Ville will be happy with her. I'm amazed at the fact some many girls are crying over it, be happy for him, where is your metalness?
