Ed Sheeran to Be Honored with MBE Status - Here's What That Means

Ed Sheeran to Be Honored with MBE Status - Here's What That Means

Ed Sheeran is just one of the many new stars being honored with an MBE.

The “Supermarket Flowers” musician reacted to the big news on Instagram, stating that he was “chuffed to be awarded an MBE for services to charity and music, thanks for all your lovely messages.”

Confused on what an MBE is? It’s short for “Member of the Order of the British Empire”.

The British honors are awarded at New Year’s and on the Queen’s official birthday in June.

All of the honorees are typically chosen by civil servant committees and this year, for this round, just over 1,100 people were on the list.

Congrats, Ed!

Ed Sheeran Doesn't Think Taylor Swift Needs Defending Over Katy Perry Feud

Ed Sheeran Doesn't Think Taylor Swift Needs Defending Over Katy Perry Feud

Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift are super close friends, and they always believe in one another and support one another, helping each other overcome self-doubts.

But, as Ed said at the 2017 Songwriters Hall of Fame, they don’t always need to defend one another.

“I don’t think she needs [to be defended] at all,” the 26-year-old “Shape of You” singer told People. (Since Katy Perry has apologized to T-Swift and dropped the matter, we’re thinking he’s absolutely right!)

He also revealed that he himself has written feud songs before, but that: “no one cares about them!”

Feud songs can be powerful; expressing one’s anger through music can lead to some magical things. That said, when celebrities themselves have dropped their “feud” (as Katy has finally done) it is definitely time for us to follow suit!

Ed Sheeran Had Such an Ed Sheeran Response to His 'Game of Thrones' Cameo

Ed Sheeran Had Such an Ed Sheeran Response to His 'Game of Thrones' Cameo

Singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran was honored at the Songwriters Hall of Fame on Thursday (June 16), where he spoke about his upcoming Game of Thrones cameo in the world’s most on-brand manner.

“I haven’t seen it yet!” the 26-year-old Grammy winner told Entertainment Tonight. “I just know the scene I did, I did with Maisie, and it’s decent. I like it. Nothing exciting happens in this scene, we just have a conversation and that’s kind of it.”

A conversation is still something, Ed!

Still, the singer continued, the picture of humility, to say that his cameo has been built up “too much.”

“People will just be like, ‘Oh… oh, all right,’” he laughed. “It’s not an integral part of it, at all. I’m just like, in it.”

Whatever you say, Ed. We’ll still be watching — because if it’s anything like your songs, we have a feeling you tend to undersell yourself just a ~little~ bit.

Ed revealed that his favorite song that he’s written is Justin Bieber‘s “Love Yourself” – and said he didn’t think that it would become that big of a hit!

“I didn’t know — I don’t think anyone knew [how big it would become],” Ed said via AOL. “I think Bieber and Scooter [Braun, Bieber's manager] knew, but I think Benny [Blanco] and me, who worked on the song, we had no idea.”

“We’ve been emailing each other back-and-forth” Camila told Capital FM radio. “I was telling him how my album was going, and he sent me this song that he written with me in mind called ‘Care About Me.’”

“I went in and changed a lot of lyrics to just make it more about myself and tied into a personal situation,” she added.

In case you missed it, Ed also recently talked about the collaboration and how much he loves Camila‘s voice!

Bring on “The Boy.”

Ed Sheeran's 'Shape of You' Just Hit 1 Billion Streams on Spotify!

Ed Sheeran is officially a super hero! His single “Shape of You” just hit one billion (yep, with a “b”) play marks on Spotify, making him one of only three acts to do so in history so far.

“Shape of You” is Ed‘s second single from his most-recently released album, Divide. That album also made Ed the fastest-selling male artist in history in the United Kingdom, according to The Independent.

The only other two artists to hit the Spotify milestone are Drake (with “One Dance) and The Chainsmokers (with “Closer”). It looks like the next artist to clear the mark will be Major Lazer (with “Lean On).

Congratulations, Ed!

And, ICYMI, Taylor Swift is back on Spotify, right now!

Ed Sheeran Covered Britney Spears' 'Hit Me Baby One More Time' & It's The Best Thing!

Admit it — you’ve always wanted Ed Sheeran to cover a Britney Spears song — and it finally came true!

As part of Spotify’s ‘Singles’ Program, the “Castle on the Hill” singer performed an acoustic cover of “Hit Me Baby One More Time”.

Well, this isn’t the first time Ed‘s covered Britney‘s song. He did it back in 2013, too. Still, we love it!

The “Singles” program has artists record two tracks, which will only be available on Spotify.

The first track is typically a newer song the act is trying to promote, while the second is a cover of anything the artist wants to show their love for.

Ed Sheeran Can Fit 55 Malted Milk Balls in His Mouth & We Can't Look Away

Ed Sheeran is a man of many talents: writing chart-topping songs, winning Grammy’s, hitting Justin Bieber in the head with golf balls.

Now we can add another talent to the list — cramming malted milk balls in his mouth! Last night on Carpool Karaoke with James Corden, James challenged the 26-year-old singer to a mouth-stuffing competition, and you can guess who came out on top.

Ed won easily, fitting 55 of the chocolate candies (Malt Teasers) in his mouth at once. They’re not small, either!

“I don’t know how you’ve done that!” James exclaimed, “That was insane!”

We’re totally impressed and kind of afraid. Watch the full video below!
