Taylor Swift & Ed Sheeran Working On New Album Together
Taylor Swift & Ed Sheeran Working On New Album Together

Country star Taylor Swift is apparently working with talented guitar player Ed Sheeran on her new album.

British newspaper The Sun reported that the duo will be working alongside each other on Taylor’s new album. Ed has quickly become one of the UK’s biggest stars following the release of his debut album ‘+’, and is now working on Taylor’s own new record at a studio in Los Angeles.

While it’s unknown whether the pair are working on a single track, a multitude, or just the whole sound of the album itself, the move is a big career step for flame-haired Ed.

“Ed and Taylor have been in the studio in LA a lot over the past few weeks working on new material,” a source told the tabloid paper. “She’s into her British music and became a massive fan of Ed before asking to work with him recently. There is a mutual affection between the pair. It’s still to be officially decided how the material will be released but just a single credit on her album will be worth big money. Taylor’s country sound is massive around the world.”

It’s not the first big-time album Ed’s helped with, he also helped X-Factor boyband One Direction complete their incredible debut, which is now one of the biggest albums of the past year in both the UK and the US.

Ed Sheeran almost gave up music for acting
Ed Sheeran almost gave up music for acting

Double Brit Award winner Ed Sheeran has revealed how he almost turned his back on music, in favour of becoming an actor. Ed admitted that he responded to an advertisement, which could have seen him become an actor, rather than a singer.

Sheeran explained, “This email came though saying, ‘If you can sing, play the guitar and act, then audition for this’. I thought, ‘This sounds like me’. I got down to the final three with Pixie Lott. I said to myself that if I get this, I’ll give up music and concentrate on acting. Luckily, I realised it wasn’t for me and I didn’t get it anyway.”
 
Ed then went on to recall a time when he played with Jessie J, before they both hit the big time. He added, We were remembering doing shows two years ago where there’d be 30 people in the audience. Two years on and she’s selling out arenas [and] I’m doing my shows.”
 
Sheeran continued, “We’ve all come from the same place, so it’s nice that we’re all supporting each other now that we’re up there.” Ed Sheeran recently revealed how his new album is set to have a much more guitar based sound to it.

Singer Ed Sheeran has revealed that he is set to auction off a few of his prized possessions, including his collection of Lego Star Wars memorabilia. Among the collection is the Lego Imperial Star Destroyer that One Direction singer Harry Styles got for him. Ed took to his official Twitter account to inform his followers of his plans.

Sheeran tweeted, “I’m gonna auction off all the lego I’ve ever made and give the proceeds to charity.” He added, “Its all stuff ive made backstage at gigs, or, the day my Album went #1.” Ed  then went on to reveal that he would be auctioning off the Lego starship that One Direction singer Harry Styles got him.
 
Sheeran continued, “The starship @Harry_Styles got me, attempted to make, and fell asleep on, thats in there too.” Ed previously revealed how Harry Styles brought him the Lego Imperial Star Destroyer, as a celebration for his single going to number one in the UK singles chart.
 
He said, “When I went to No 1, I bought a Lego Star Wars Millennium Falcon. Harry bought me the Imperial Star Destroyer and we stayed up until about 3am making it.” Who will be making an offer for the Harry Styles Imperial Star Destroyer?
Dappy slams Olly Murs Brit Award performance
Dappy slams Olly Murs Brit Award performance

Former N-Dubz singer Dappy has slammed former X Factor wannabe Olly Murs for his performance at the Brit Awards last week. Dappy claims that he was not impressed with the performance of Olly Murs and even suggested that he needs to learn how to sing. It is not the first time that Dappy has had a pop at a fellow celebrity and it is highly unlikely to be the last.

Dappy explained, “Bloomin’ hell, Olly Murs needs to learn how to sing, boy. He came off The X Factor so he should be able to sing and yet that was a horrific performance. You can’t do things like that.” Dappy then went on to discuss his future regarding the Brit Awards and whether he thinks he should have been nominated for any.
 
He added, “I don’t feel I deserve to be at The Brits yet. I need a year of hits, then I’ll be able to go. I’ve had a No1 but I need a couple more. I was so happy for Adele and Ed Sheeran.” Dappy recently revealed how he has ended his cheating ways because he felt that it shows him as a weak person and he hated having to try and win his girlfriend back every time.

Adele and Ed Sheeran win big at the Brit Awards
Adele and Ed Sheeran win big at the Brit Awards

It was another big night for singer Adele, who recently took home six Grammy Awards, as she scooped up two Brit Awards to add to her collection, British Female Artist and Mastercard Album Of The Year for 21. Meanwhile, Ed Sheeran also managed to bag himself two Brit Awards, British Male Solo Artist and British Breakthrough Act.

Accepting her first award from Kylie Minogue, Adele explained, “I feel like a drag queen standing next to you. It’s been an amazing year. Thank you. I’d like to thank my record company for letting me be the kind of artist I want to be.” Meanwhile, Ed Sheeran forgot to thank his friend Stuart Camp, who let him crash on his sofa for so long, as he collected his first award.
 
However, he made amends for it with his second gong, as he said, “He took me from a spotty, chubby ginger teenager to this. So thanks Stuart and… you need a new sofa.” There was some controversy at the Brit Awards, as Adele was cut short by James Corden during her second acceptance speech, much to the annoyance of the singer who then gave the middle finger to those in charge.
 
One Direction’s new album to be grungier
One Direction’s new album to be grungier

It was reported last year that One Direction would be taking on a similar sound to that of Good Charlotte and Panic at the Disco and now that they have gotten their first album out of the way, it seems that they are set to follow through with that plan. One Direction were obligated to release a pop album as their first album but their second album will see them work with Ed Sheeran, as they go for a grungier feel.

Liam Payne explained, “Ed is such a talented guy. We spoke to him about helping again for the next album which we want to actually write with him this time. He gave us almost a whole album of songs to choose from last time; there were so many of his songs that we wanted to record.”
 
Louis Tomlinson added, “We want to take the next album into a different zone - more guitars and grungier. We like the sound of a real guitar on tour, we beefed up the live show so now we want to take it onto the album.” One Direction have already gained a huge following in the US, prompting them to bring forward the release of their debut album Up All Night, which will now be released on March 13.

Brit Award nominee Ed Sheeran has revealed how he and One Direction singer Harry Styles manager to build up a friendship before Ed made it big. Ed stated that he used to crash on friends sofas quite a lot and one of those friends was a guitarist for One Direction and he would often wake up on the sofa to find Harry Styles asleep on the other one.

Sheeran explained, “I’d wake up on a sofa sometimes with Harry on the other sofa. We developed a friendship.” The two stars even celebrated Ed’s number 1 in a rather unusual way. He added, “When I went to No 1, I bought a Lego Star Wars Millennium Falcon. Harry bought me the Imperial Star Destroyer and we stayed up until about 3am making it.”
 
Ed Sheeran has been nominated for four awards at the forthcoming Brit Awards, which are British male solo artist, British breakthrough act, British single and British album of the year. Meanwhile, Harry Styles and the rest of his One Direction band mates have been nominated for British Single at the Brit Awards for their track What Makes You Beautiful.
Ed Sheeran talks weight loss and diet
Ed Sheeran talks weight loss and diet

Singer Ed Sheeran has revealed how he was inspired to go on a health and fitness diet in a bid to shift around three stone of weight. Ed had been asked by Elton John to be involved in a calendar shoot, where he would need to take his clothes of and Ed did not feel comfortable with his body, so decided to lose some of the extra weight.

Sheeran explained, “I’m not a very confident guy when it comes to taking my clothes off. I was 14 stone and I’m now 11. It’s going to be the first time that I feel comfortable on screen. I stopped drinking and got a personal trainer. I was a bit flabby to be fair. I moved out when I was 16 to a place above a pub with a kebab shop where I ate and drank and just got a bit chubby.”
 
He added, “The photos are all going to be part of a catalogue that is going to be sold to raise money. A lot of people are doing it. So ladies, lock up your daughters.” The calendar will be released with the intent of benefitting the Elton John Aids Foundation. Ed Sheeran was recently nominated for an impressive four Brit Awards.
JLS to release stripped back album

JLS have revealed that they are all massive fans of singer songwriter Ed Sheeran and that they would love to do a duet with him. Now the former X Factor contestants have revealed that they intend to release an album that is much more stripped back and takes them back to their roots. Meanwhile, they also admitted that they would love to work on a track with singer songwriter Adele.

Aston explained, “There’s already been a few moments like that on our previous albums, but we want to take some of it back to our roots from when we first began. We love the way that Ed performs on stage, it’s incredible. We think we could do something amazing together in the studio. We believe it’s all in the pipeline.”
 
Marvin added, “I’d love to write with Adele as well. She’s an incredible songwriter, but recently she only seems to be credited for her albums sales. It’s only ever her and one producer and her in the studio. We’d love to set something up with her.” JLS release the single Proud, which is in aide of Sport Relief on March 16.
The Vaccines delighted with Brit Award nomination
The Vaccines delighted with Brit Award nomination

The Vaccines were announced earlier this week as one of the nominees in the category of the Best Breakthrough Act at this year’s Brit Awards and the boys are delighted at the recognition. Frontman Justin Young has revealed that, while they still consider themselves rock ‘n’ roll, they are proud to receive some mainstream recognition for a commercial award ceremony.

Young explained, “It’s quite surreal really. Admittedly we are a pop band, but we’re still rock ‘n’ roll. We’re from an alternative background, so it’s nice to be recognised in a mainstream, commercial awards ceremony.” He then went on to discuss the fact that Laura Marling won the Best Female Award last year and was up for it again this year.
 
Justin added, “It really shocked me when Laura won last year, but when I saw that she was nominated again this year, I was like, ‘That’s awesome’, it wasn’t just a token thing last year.” The Brit Awards nominations were announced earlier this week, with Ed Sheeran leading the way with 4 nominations. The Brit Awards are set to take place at the O2 Arena on February 27.
