Ed Sheeran’s ‘X’ Receives RIAA’s 2X Multi-Platinum Award

Ed Sheeran checks out his plaque after receiving the RIAA 2X multi-Platinum award for X earlier in the week.

The 24-year-old musician was joined by RIAA’s EVP of Communications and Marketing Jonathan Lamy and Director of Communications and Gold & Platinum Program, Liz Kennedy at the event.

X is just one of only four albums released since 2014 to achieve RIAA multi-Platinum status, and this also marks Ed’s first multi-Platinum album. The other three are Taylor Swift’s 1989, Sam Smith’s In The Lonely Hour, and Adele’s 25.

Ed Sheeran Confirmed for Cameo in the Third Bridget Jones Series Film

The long-awaited third installment to the Bridget Jones series of films finally has a chance to see the light of day, despite previously having difficulties with making the project fly. Recent photos have revealed that the actors as well as all the people involved were spotted in London, shooting key scenes for the new Bridget Jones movie — possibly one of the most anticipated romantic comedy films for the next year.

“Bridget Jones’s Baby,” as the movie is called, was scheduled to be out April 2016, as The Sun reported while capturing moments from the London shoot. One of the more memorable photos portrays Academy award-winning actress Renee Zellweger (playing the titular Bridget Jones) being carried away by her two fellow actors Colin Firth and Patrick Dempsey — possibly shooting a scene where a pregnant Bridget Jones is being rushed to a hospital. Other gallery highlights include Firth chatting up with Zellweger and another one where Firth was loitering somewhere around the main area of the University College London Hospital.

Fans of “Bridget Jones” already are familiar with the film series being built around the premise of a novel modernization: specifically that of Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice.” Some may find it interesting to note that the titular character may now have developed from a woman who is looking for love into one that has found it and is now getting ready to start a new chapter out of the same sentiment.

In any case, fans were made even more excited for the reported appearance of popular singer Ed Sheeran. Lifestyle e-zine Marie Claire reports that the “Thinking Out Loud” singer was “excited about [the role]” after confirming that he will make a cameo appearance in the new Bridget Jones movie. Of what or whose character Sheeran will portray will, in the meantime, remain as a matter for speculation.
