Ed Sheeran Joins Bastard Executioner

The Bastard Executioner is adding a surprising member to its A-team: singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran.

The successful pop star will recur as Sir Cormac, the highly (and dangerously) ambitious protégé of a church elder, per The Hollywood Reporter.

Kurt Sutter’s 10-episode, 14th-century drama — which FX greenlit in May — “tells the story of a warrior knight in King Edward I’s charge who is broken by the ravages of war and vows to lay down his sword. But when that violence finds him again he is forced to pick up the bloodiest sword of all.”

Sheeran, a fan of Sutter’s Sons of Anarchy, contributed a song to that series’ final season. He also appeared in Undateable‘s live episode earlier this year and will have a live concert special on NBC later this summer.

Ed Sheeran Wins Big at Canada’s Much Music Video Awards

Ed Sheeran is tops with Canadians after he picked up the best international artist prize at the Much Music Video Awards in Toronto on Sunday night.

The red-headed UK singer, who appeared at the MMVAs for his fourth straight year and his first as host, was also named the most buzzworthy international artist. “This is my fourth year and I’ve never won one. I feel like it’s just because I’m presenting,” Sheeran said while accepting the trophy for best international artist.

On the giant Toronto stage, Sheeran sang “Photograph,” a single from his x album, accompanied by a string quartet and pulsating drumming. He returned to help wind up the MMVAs by performing his romantic ballad “Thinking Out Loud.”

Ed Sheeran Says “Embrace Your Weirdness”

Ed Sheeran is cool with his uncool childhood.

“Having things that make you different help you become an interesting person,” he told The Hollywood Reporter before being honored at the American Institute for Stuttering’s Freeing Voices Changing Lives Benefit Gala on Monday. “Most of the people I knew that were normal in school are all pretty dull right now — they go to the gym four times a week and look at themselves in the mirror a lot, but they don’t really have a lot to say.… Most of the people that are successful started life off as a weird kid with no friends.”

The musician was commended at the New York City fundraiser for his openness about overcoming his stutter, an oft-shamed disorder that Emily Blunt also conquered when a teacher first suggested she try out for a school play. “It can be mistaken for a learning disability, an anxious sensibility or a weakness,” the actress, emceeing the evening in an Elisabetta Franchi jumpsuit, told THR. “It’s not true to your real character; it’s just that you’re limited in your ability to speak.… I wanted people to understand that it wasn’t that I didn’t know who I was or what I wanted to say or who I wanted to be.”

In his speech, Sheeran proudly noted his childhood’s rougher edges. “I was a very, very weird child. I had a port-wine stain birthmark on my face that I got lasered off when I was very young; one day, they forgot to put the anesthetic on, and ever since then, I had a stutter. I also had very big, blue NHS glasses — NHS is the National Health Service, one day I hope you’ll have the same! And I lacked an eardrum on one side of my ear, so stuttering was actually the least of my problems!”

“But it was still quite a difficult thing. The thing I found most difficult was knowing what to say but not really being able to express it the right way,” he continued. Though speech therapy and homeopathy didn’t work, rap music became an effective remedy. “My Uncle Jim told my dad that Eminem was the next Bob Dylan — it’s pretty similar, it’s all just storytelling — so my dad bought me The Marshall Mathers LP when I was nine years old, not knowing what was on it. I learned every word of it, back to front, by the time I was ten. He raps very fast and melodically and percussively, and it helped me get rid of the stutter.”

Ed Sheeran Believes He Knows What The Song Of The Summer Will Be

Ed Sheeran is ready to put the debate to bed. In fact, Sheeran is certain he knows what the song of the summer will be.

Sheeran is pretty certain that “Shut Up and Dance” by Walk the Moon will steal the so-called “Song of the Summer” title. At least that’s what Ed Sheeran said when talking to Vulture at the American Institute of Stuttering Gala at the Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers.

“I’m just hearing that everywhere. It just makes everyone happy whenever they hear it. I really like that song.”

According to Vulture, Sheeran’s songs are too slow to be considered summer jams in 2015, but the news outlet said Sheeran is OK with that, especially since he had one of the most popular songs of last summer with “Sing.” In May of 2014, USA Today reported that Sheeran’s “Sing” was the No. 1 song to memorize for the summer. The song spent seven weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and topped out at No. 13.

Ed Sheeran also mentioned another song he’d like to see do well this summer: “Trap Queen” by Fetty Wap, he told Vulture.

“It’s amazing that ‘Trap Queen’ is such a massive hit. I love that.”

Sheeran is a great lover of hip-hop music and makes it known often that he supports the genre. In fact, Ed Sheeran recently covered “Trap Queen” on a Fallon episode.

Media outlets have noted that Sheeran did not mention “Bad Blood” by Taylor Swift, which is surprising, considering the close friendship that Sheeran and Swift seem to have developed recently.

Currently, “See You Again” by Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth sits in the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, followed by Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood.” “Trap Queen” by Fetty Wap is in the No. 3 spot while “Shut Up and Dance” by Walk the Moon is in the No. 4 spot. “Want to Want Me” by Jason DeRulo rounds out the top five.

Considering the fact that both the songs Sheeran mentioned are already in the top five, it is quite possible that Sheeran’s predictions could come true.

Ed Sheeran: I’m responsible for boosting the sex lives of ginger men

Ed Sheeran believes ginger men are getting more sex – and they have him to thank for it.

The British singer, whose heartfelt songs have found international acclaim, told a US radio station that British ginger men are capitalising on riding a wave of interest from the opposite sex thanks to the fashionability of their hair colour.

“There are a lot of ginger dudes in England who are using me,” he said in the interview. “That’s why I’m not hating on it. You know what, we’re finally getting laid! This is a good thing.

As evidence, Sheeran cited a man who apparently impersonates him in clubs as a seduction technique.

“My cousin went on holiday with all her mates,” explained the ginger-locked singer. “Her mate was in a bar and this dude came up to her and said ‘I have my song in on the radio and my name is Ed Sheeran’.

“So she is like ‘Hold on a minute’ and she goes to get my cousin and she says (to the guy) ‘Tell her that.’

“And he goes ‘Yeah my name is Ed Sheeran and I have got this song on the radio’ and then Kathy, my cousin, just pulls out her ID and holds it up and it says Kathy Sheeran and she yells out ‘Look at that! Not today mate… not today’.
“And the guy goes to all the bars in all the land. Apparently it works for him.”
