Ed Sheeran helps Courteney Cox do the Ice Bucket Challenge

Another day, another celebrity doing the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. When Jennifer Aniston completed it over the weekend, she nominated her Friends co-star and real life bestie Courteney Cox to take part, and being the good sport she is, Courteney obliged. And to make it even better, she brought the pair’s unlikely buddy Ed Sheeran in to help!

And here’s Jennifer Aniston’s, challenge, just for fun:

Demi Lovato covered Ed Sheeran’s ‘Give Me Love’ and it wasn’t completely awful


Demi Lovato has finally stopped talking about her time in rehab long enough to get back to the music, and I kinda feel like she should do it way more often! She did a concert at the iHeart Radio Theatre in Los Angeles, where she covered an Ed Sheeran song, ‘Give Me Love’.

It’s a great track, and Sheeran is really hard to cover well. Is this amazing? Definitely not. Is it as bad as it could have been? Eh, nah. Don’t think so. However, at least she tried and I did make it through the whole thing, so perhaps that’s a relative victory?

Ed Sheeran thinks he’s Justin Timberlake now, I guess…

The GRAMMY Nominations Concert Live!! Countdown To Music's Biggest Night - Press Room

Ed Sheeran‘s debut album was MASSIVELY successful – and for good reason. It was really amazing, and the sales proved it. So, now that that’s out of the way, how will is sophomore record do? Eh, I’m not so sure. The first single from it, ‘Sing’, is… interesting and I’m not quite sure what I think about it.

‘Sing’ was produced by Pharrell and has a very Justin Timberlake vibe to it throughout. And by “vibe”, I mean it could literally be a Justin Timberlake song. Not sure if that’s a good or bad thing. Ed has always had that little percussive side to his sound and that’s great, but it’s difficult to sort through this one on first listen.

What do you think of ‘Sing’?

Jennifer Aniston Celebrated Thanksgiving With… Ed Sheeran?

I really have no idea how this one came about, to be honest, but I guess Jennifer Aniston and Ed Sheeran celebrated Thanksgiving together. You’ve got to hand it to Ed, man – unassuming, “chubby” (I really never got how that label fit him…) little ginger kid who almost didn’t get a record deal and now he’s touring around the world and hanging out with the likes of Taylor Swift and Jennifer Aniston.

The other woman in the picture is apparently Jennifer’s manager. Where is Justin Theroux? Also, how does Jennifer’s hair still look so good, even when we can barely even see it? So much left unexplained…

Is Ed Sheeran One of the Sexiest Men Alive?

Adam Levine may have run away with the title, but Ed Sheeran was also nominated for People’s Sexiest Men Alive… competition? Honour? Whatever. If he seems like an odd choice, don’t worry – he thought so too.

“One of the reasons I said yes to being in this issue is because it’s quite funny. Utterly ridiculous! I don’t think anyone sees me as a sex symbol. I don’t know who the voting party are for People, but thank you. It’s very kind. But I’m sure I’m the only person on this list who has a belly.”

“Though I guess Austin Powers was considered a sex symbol, and we share similar physical-appearance qualities. I brush my teeth though. My other usual grooming habits are showering and a shave now and then. Sometimes I put on a suit. Or not! I get voted worst-dressed quite a lot, so I obviously don’t put much thought into it.”

I love me a bit of Ed Sheeran and think he’s lovely. It’s so great to see the success he’s having here in the US. I remember when he was just a little unknown guy with a guitar in the UK, so he’s come a long way. I can’t rate his physical attractiveness, mostly because he’s not in my forte, being the wrong gender and all. That’s not to say that I can’t recognise hotness when it’s staring me in the face, but he’s just… Ed!

What do you think, ladies? Want a piece of him?

It’s Time For Taylor Swift to Build a Bridge and Get Over It

It’s great that Taylor Swift has a sense of humour and all. She’s “goofy” and “quirky” and can laugh at herself and I like her, I do. However, she really, really needs to move on with her life and get over shit. Her good friend and totally not boyfriend Ed Sheeran (no really, he’s not) posted a photo on Instagram yesterday revealing Taylor’s culinary skills. She made him a jar of jam, but the label… girl, the label.

We get it. The Kanye thing was huge. He stole your big moment, it was a big-to do… but it was also four years ago now. He’s been vilified non-stop and you’ve had your moment since then about ten times over. It’s the joke that’s just not funny anymore, if it ever was.

I mean, am I wrong here? Am I missing out on some kind of hilarity? Please let me know.

Taylor Swift Might Have a Thing For Gingers

Taylor Swift and fellow musician Ed Sheeran became, er, swift friends when they met while working on TSwift’s album Red last year, and sort of maybe had a little fling then, though Ed insisted to reporters at the time that they would never have a relationship because he wasn’t her time. Aw, Ed! Even gingers need love.

Anyway, since her break up with Harry Styles in December, Taylor is said to have become closer with Ed again – especially since he’ll be opening for her world tour later this year – and now they’re giving it a proper go. Hmm.

From The Sun:

Ed told The Sun last night: “We’re good friends.”

A source said: “Taylor has always loved Ed to bits. He’s just an adorably sweet guy who makes her laugh and feel really confident.

“Harry had that irresistible bad boy thing but Taylor has realised she would rather give it a go with a guy who can make her happy on a different level.”

Taylor and Ed spent the night together before last month’s Brits awards, according to reports in the US. They stayed up talking and putting the world to rights until 4am at Taylor’s London hotel.

Ed was spotted doing “the walk of shame” the next day, leaving the hotel in the same clothes he had been wearing the night before.

A source added: “Taylor made it clear when they go off on tour she wants Ed to be her boyfriend.

“He’s thrilled as he has always thought she’s amazing. When they split last year he always hoped they would get back together.

“They’ve both vowed not to have a nasty break-up no matter what happens.”

I mean, I sort of can’t really see it – it’s an odd coupling if ever there was one. Still, sometimes it’s the odd couplings that work the best. What do you think?
