Ed Sheeran reveals his pride in discovering Beyonce was a huge fan

They went straight to the top of the UK charts with their romantic tune Perfect, earning the coveted Christmas number one.

And now musician Jools Holland revealed that singer Beyonce, 36, was so impressed after watching Perfect partner Ed Sheeran, 26, perform on Jools’ Annual Hotenanny in 2014.

The songwriter belted out Stevie Wonder’s Master Blaster for the popular New Year musical show, and Beyonce caught the performance on YouTube before calling Ed up for the winning collaboration.

Jools recently spoke to Event Magazine, and said Ed was over-the-moon over at the news that the Crazy in Love hitmaker had watched him perform.

He added: ‘I can’t believe Beyoncé has seen me on YouTube. She said to Ed, “I saw you on Jools.” My head became so big I could hardly get out the door.’


The Lemonade singer wasn’t the only one to be won over by the Shape of You songwriter.

Jools also confessed to being a huge fan of Ed, who is set to perform once more on his Hootenanny again on Sunday.

He said: ‘I remember when he first came on the show. He had such a strength of conviction in the delivery of a song that it cut straight through. It wasn’t phoney or fake.

Despite his obvious success, Jools warned that the chart-topper may be too nice for the cutthroat music industry.

He said: ‘Nobody likes a nice bloke in music. want a pantomime villain or somebody who is a bit odd. Ed’s a nice fellow but I think, in a way, that makes it harder for him.’

A rep for Ed confirmed that the creative sparks flew when Ed previously played Perfect to Beyoncé on his guitar, prior to the release of his latest album ‘÷’.

Ed Sheeran Says Beyonce Goes To Extreme Lengths To Protect Her Privacy

Beyonce’s not one to get too attached to an email address.

Ed Sheeran, speaking to Entertainment Tonight on Friday at the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball explained the nuanced communications that led to his collaboration with her on the new track, Perfect.

‘I have an email address that I email … that actually changes every week’ to arrange a chat with Beyonce, the 26-year-old singer said. ‘So I emailed that and then we got on the phone, and it’s been in the works since May.

‘It’s kind of like what I aspire to be, I think.’

Sheeran said he was able to scale the digital gauntlet and catch up with the 36-year-old Houston native about the nascent single.

The Thinking Out Loud artist said that there were a few delays, as the pop icon gave birth to her twins Rumi and Sir this past June.

‘Obviously she had twins, and we finished it in September, so I’ve been holding onto it since then,’ he said.

The Castle on the Hill crooner praised Beyonce for her prescience in performance, as she nailed the single in a single take – ‘One take vocals,’ he said – and even added her creative two cents on the background instrumentals.

‘The original version of Perfect was just an acoustic guitar and she rung me up and was like, “I don’t know how you feel about this but I’ve taken all the instruments off it and it’s just gonna be acoustic guitar.”

‘And I was like, “Ah that’s great, because it used to be that!”‘

The Shape of You singer noted that it was smooth sailing once he and the Formation artist were in the studio.

Ed Sheeran Reveals He Secretly Battled With Substance Abuse

Ed Sheeran has revealed a secret battle with substance abuse, which caused him to take a year-long hiatus from the music industry.

The singer-songwriter, 26, admitted his sudden rise to international fame affected him in a negative way to the extent that he ‘started slipping into’ dangerous habits.

Speaking during Saturday night’s forthcoming episode of The Jonathan Ross Show, the Shape Of You hitmaker credited girlfriend and childhood friend, Cherry Seaborn, 24, with pulling him back from the brink.

Discussing his meteoric rise to sudden fame, the British musician explained: ‘I didn’t really have any growing up time into getting famous.

‘I think you need to, when you get into the industry, adjust to it – and I didn’t adjust because I was constantly working on tour.

‘And all the pitfalls that people read about, I just found myself slipping into all of them. Mostly, like, substance abuse.

‘I never touched anything. I started slipping into it, and that’s why I took a year off and buggered off.’

Sheeran said while his problems all started off ‘as a party’, the situation gradually deteriorated, and he realized he needed to address his demons when concerned friends and family members intervened.

He explained to show host Jonathan Ross: ‘I didn’t really notice it was happening. It just started gradually happening, and then some people took me to one side and were like, “Calm yourself down”.

‘It’s all fun to begin with, it all starts off as a party and then you’re doing it on your own and it’s not, so that was a wake-up call and taking a year off.’

Sheeran did not specifically state which substance he was using, but has been open about his heavy drinking in the past.

Ed Sheeran Reveals He Drank Through The Pain When He Broke His Arm

His broken arm has been the talk of the town over the past week.

And Ed Sheeran found himself chatting about it yet again when he was interviewed by Jonathan Ross this week.

In his first sit down interview since his recent bicycle crash, the Brit and Grammy award winning performer, 26, spoke to Jonathan [alongside Gordon Ramsay, Rita Ora and Russell Howard] about the accident which has seen him cancel performances on his upcoming tour – and says he drank through the pain when the accident first happened.

On breaking both arms in different places, he said: ‘I broke my wrist, my elbow and my rib. I came off a bike quite fast, a bicycle, a pedal bike.

‘The thing is, when it happened, I got up and was like, “That hurt” and then cycled to the pub. Went home, went to sleep and then woke up at five o’clock in the morning in a lot of pain. And then went to the hospital.’

He also admitted that doctors told him he would never play guitar again if he didn’t cancel his tour.

He said: ‘I tried to say I’ll carry on doing the shows but they said if I put any more stress on it, I might not be able to play [guitar] again so it’s good to be sensible.’

Speaking about his recovery he said: ‘They are saying four weeks and then we’ll look at it.’

On the topic of alcohol, Ed went on to reveal that he took a hiatus from music to make sure he didn’t succumb to the temptation of drugs.

Team Mafisi Is This True? The Game Of Thrones Is Now More Popular Than Your Favorite Past time

Forget that Ed Sheerans appearance in Games of Thrones was the most tweeted moment.

It turns out that Games of Thrones has become so popular it’s drawing viewers away from porn.

One of the world’s largest adult websites, Pornhub, reported that traffic to the site dipped 4.5 per cent during the premiere of the seventh season on Sunday.

Pornhub said the number was a ‘considerable change’, since Sunday night is one of the most popular times for porn lovers.

The seventh series premiere was so popular it distracted viewers from porn

But it’s not the first time dragons and White Walkers have come out on top in this most bizarre of viewing battles.

The biggest dip to Pornhub’s traffic came on June 26 2016, during the finale of Game of Thrones’ sixth season, when traffic dropped by 5.2 per cent.

During last season’s Episode 4 – ‘Book of the Stranger’ – Pornhub’s traffic decreased by 4.9 per cent.

However the graph showed that two hours after the episode on Sunday viewers returned to their regular porn-watching habits.

The premiere of Game of Thrones’ seventh season shattered record ratings. 16.1 million HBO subscribers tuned in to watch the ‘Dragonstone’.

Data released by Pornhub showed there was a significant slump during the premiere on Sunday night - but traffic soon returned to normal

Of that total, around 10.1 million were traditional viewers, while a further six million streamed the show online.

This made the new season of the fantasy epic HBO’s most watched series debut ever, and an astonishing 50 per cent increase from the sixth season’s opener.

It's not the first time drama in Westeros has affected Pornhub - last season's finale saw traffic to the site decrease by 5.2 per cent

The seventh season premiere was also the most-tweeted episode of all time, with 2.4 million Tweets.

Arya Stark’s gruesome revenge and Ed Sheeran’s cameo were particularly popular scenes.

However not all fans were pleased with the singer’s appearance, with one fan of the programme memorably tweeting that the fact he was ‘not being brutally disembowelled was very disappointing.’

He’s done it again! Ed Sheeran Deletes Twitter Account Hours After Cameo On Game Of Thrones

He first quit Twitter at the start of July because of trolls,  then quickly denied he had, in fact, stopped using the online social media platform.


But on Monday, Ed Sheeran once again appeared to have dumped Twitter as his account abruptly disappeared.


Just hours after he garnered mixed reaction from fans for his cameo on the season seven premiere of HBO’s Game Of Thrones, his Twitter feed couldn’t be found.

 Offline: Just hours after he garnered mixed reaction from fans for his cameo on the season seven premiere of HBO's Game Of Thrones, Ed Sheeran deleted his Twitter feed

The conflicted hitmaker clearly has a love-hate relationship with the platform and his decision to shut down his account drew anguished reaction from his followers.

Oh no! Fans of the British hitmaker reacted with anguish

As for Ed himself, he was a million miles away with his girlfriend Cherry Seaborn.

He posted a photo of the couple to his Instagram showing them posed against a vista of peaks under a bright blue sky.

He added the caption: ‘Climbing mountains in Peru.’

'Climbing mountains in Peru': Ed did post to his Instagram on Monday, revealing he and girlfriend Cherry Seaborn have gotten away from it all 

On July 3, Britain’s The Sun newspaper published an interview with Ed in which he said he’d ‘come off Twitter completely.’

‘I go on it and there’s nothing but people saying mean things. Twitter is a platform for that. One comment ruins your day. But that’s why I’ve come off it,’ he explained.

The next day, though, the 26-year-old backtracked and posted to Instagram, saying: ‘I haven’t quit anything, I’m just not reading anything, except Harry Potter.’

Deja vu: In early July, he told The Sun he'd quit Twitter because of negative criticism and then a day later, he denied he'd stopped suing the social media platform

Ed Sheeran Sings In His Game Of Thrones Cameo Sparking Ire Among Loyal Viewers

Ed Sheeran’s highly-anticipated appearance on Game of Thrones came during the HBO show’s season seven premiere Sunday.

The 26-year-old singer was well-cast on the program, as the script called for him to do what he’s most famous for: singing.


The Thinking Out Loud artist appeared onscreen in a sequence in which Arya, played by Maisie Williams, rode horseback through a forest.

He sang the lyrics (taken from the George R.R. Martin book A Dance with Dragons):

‘He rode through the streets of the city / Down from his hill on high / O’er the winds and the steps and the cobbles / He rode to a woman’s sigh / For she was his secret treasure / She was his shame and his bliss / And a chain and a keep are nothing / Compared to a woman’s kiss / For hands of gold are always cold / But a woman’s hands are warm.’


Arya told Ed’s character, ‘It’s a pretty song, I’ve never heard it before,’ to which he responded, ‘It’s a new one.’

The Shape of You singer, who’s previously showed off his acting chops on The Bastard Executioner in 2015, was a major get for the show, whose creators David Benioff and DB Weiss said they had been trying to get him to appear ‘for years,’ as Williams is a huge fan of the red-headed Grammy-winner.

‘We tried to get Ed Sheeran on the show to surprise Maisie, and this year we finally did it,’ Benioff said in March while appearing at the festival South By Southwest in Austin, Texas.

Ed Sheeran Has QUIT Twitter After Being Targeted By Cruel Trolls

Ed Sheeran has quit Twitter after being bombarded with cruel comments.

The A-Team hitmaker has decided to stop using his account after realising the mean tweets were ‘ruining’ his day.

Although his feed  – which boasts 19.1million followers – remains open, he has stopped posting on it and only shares pictures which he uploads to his Instagram.


Speaking to The Sun, he explains: ‘I’ve actually come off Twitter completely. I can’t read it.

‘I go on it and there’s nothing but people saying mean things. Twitter’s a platform for that. One comment ruins your day. But that’s why I’ve come off it.

‘The head-f**k for me has been trying to work out why people dislike me so much.’

The singer adds that he relies on his family and friends to keep his feet on the ground, rather than online trolls.

His last actual post came as he slammed critics of his Glastonbury performance after some fans claimed he was using a backing track instead of a live band.


Many followers praised the Castle On The Hill star for ‘absolutely smashing’ his headline set, while others complained Ed hadn’t been worthy of the slot.

Now, Ed himself has responded to his critics – that had seen him accused of ‘miming’ playing a guitar up on stage.

He insisted that his hour-and-a-half long performance had all been live in a defiant tweet against those who had claimed otherwise.


Ed penned on Twitter: ‘Never thought I’d have to explain it, but everything I do in my live show is live, it’s a loop station, not a backing track. Please google x.’

Not letting the backlash ruin his ‘dream’ moment up on the Pyramid Stage, Ed added in a second tweet: ‘Anyway, great night, great atmosphere, family, friends, fun. Love you all.’

Sweet! Ed Sheeran Confirms He’s Ready For Marriage Amid Rumours He’s Set To Propose To Girlfriend

Rumours have been swirling that Ed Sheeran is gearing up to propose to his girlfriend, Cherry Seaborn, during their trip to Australia this month.

He has done little to quell the reports, having confirmed on a radio show that he’s ready for marriage.

Chatting with the shock-jocks on Tuesday’s show, the Castle On The Hill singer gushed about his leading lady, saying: ‘She lives three or four miles away from me where I grew up. And we live together now, we just got cats.

When quizzed by Kyle about the possibility of having children and getting married, he responded: ‘Yeah, potentially. I would like some kids.’


So is this a marriage thing?‘ prodded Kyle, prompting Ed to add: ‘I‘m pretty… yeah I feel pretty good about it.

It comes after NW magazine claimed that Ed is preparing to propose to his ladylove, possibly as soon as this week.

Ed Sheeran Admits Taylor Swift Can Take Things ‘Too Far’ Because She Was Never The Most Popular

A friend of the singer reportedly told the publication that Ed is set to get down on bended knee while the couple are in Australia, where the red-haired star is touring Melbourne and Sydney.

‘He’s so ready to take the next step with Cherry and couldn’t think of a better place to ask her to marry him in Australia,‘ the friend allegedly told the publication.

Ed recently opened up about his girlfriend during an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music’s Beats 1 radio.

The crooner knows Cherry from school, and admitted he ‘wanted to be a dad’ for the past year and is ready to start having ‘chubby babies’.


He said: ‘This has been the first time I’ve ever actually had the time to fall in love properly.


When asked if he was excited to become a dad in the future, the Shape Of You singer said he was ‘massively’ ready.

He explained: ‘Massively, yeah. I wanted to be a dad, like, last year. I’m ready, let’s go – tour bus babies, little fat, chubby babies that just walk around.’



Ed Sheeran Makes Music History With His Comeback Singles As They Smash Records With 13 MILLION Streams On One Day

Ed Sheeran has made history with both his comeback singles reaching over 13 million streams in 24 hours.

The 25-year-old singer has beaten One Direction with his new tracks, Shape of You and Castle on the Hill, which have been streamed globally 6,868, 642 and 6,168, 395 times respectively, smashing Spotify’s Day 1 UK and global streaming record.

With his success, the Thinking Out Loud hitmaker has knocked One Direction – who achieved 4,759,698 streams with Drag Me Down in August 2015 – off the top spot.
Back in the game: Ed Sheeran has made history with both his comeback singles reaching over 13 million streams in 24 hours following his one-year hiatus from the music industry 

Ed has previously worked with One Direction, and wrote their hits Little Things and Moments.

Ed also admitted that he originally wrote Shape of You with Rihanna in mind but decided to keep the song for himself in the end as he didn’t think the pop starlet would want to sing those lyrics.

He revealed: ‘I was singing some of the lyrics and was like Rihanna is not going to sing these words so kept it to myself.

Overthrown: With his success,the Thinking Out Loud hitmaker has knocked One Direction - who achieved 4,759,698 streams with Drag Me Down in August 2015 - off the top spot

He continued: ‘Castle on the Hill is a love song for Suffolk because I don’t think anyone has ever done that.

‘I’ve shot the music video actually in Suffolk and the cast of it are people from my high school. The main guy who looks just like me is weirdly from my sixth form.’

The flame-haired star had originally planned to release his new music in September and confessed to playing some of his new tracks for strangers he met in the pub.

Not a right fit: Ed also admitted that he originally wrote Shape of You with Rihanna in mind but decided to keep the song for himself in the end as he didn't she would like the lyrics

He added: ‘The funny thing is while I have music waiting to be released I usually end up playing it to random people.

‘Normally when I’ve been out drinking I’ll be like, “Hey mate do you want to hear my new song?” that happens a lot.’

Ed’s singles were released this week after his year-long hiatus from the music industry.

Ed Sheeran Is In Ghana Recording With Fuse ODG

Grammy winning musician Ed Sheeran is in Ghana, livefmghana.com can report.

Sheeran is recording a song with Afrobeats artiste Fuse ODG, which we are told will be on the latter’s upcoming album. ODG’s regular collaborator Killbeatz is producing the song.

This collaboration adds to the tall list of artistes that the ‘Antenna’ hitmaker has worked with so far including Sean Paul and Major Lazer.

The 3-time Music Of Black Origin (MOBO) African Artiste of the Year winner made history early this year as the first Afrobeats artiste to perform in India during the opening of the ninth edition of the India Premier league.

He also performed at the Coachella Festival this year alongside Major Lazer.

Ed Sheeran Says He Once Pooped His Pants While Performing

Ed Sheeran admitted during an interview with Australian radio station Nova FM that he once accidentally pooped his pants while performing.

When the radio host asked Sheeran if he ever let out gas onstage, the star responded, “all the time,” before he launched into the TMI story.
