When we first heard that Ed Sheeran was engaged we were super happy. Ed and his fiance Cherry Seaborn make one incredible couple and we couldn't love them any more tbh. But one thing that caught our attention when the couple announced their engagement was that decision Ed made to wear an engagement ring as well as Cherry. Traditionally, it's only the bride-to-be who wears an engagement ring, but not when it comes to Mr Sheeran. Ed has been spotted at plenty of high profile events wearing his engagament ring, including the BRIT Awards and the Berlin Film Festival, but he'd never revealed why he'd chosen to wear one, until now... Having previously claimed he doesn't see why men shouldn't wear engagament rings, Ed told Australian radio show Kyle and Jackie O, "It also means that nobody will know when we have got married." After Kyle exclaimed, "Ahh, I see what you’re trying to do! Throw everyone off the scent! I get it!", Ed simply responded, "Yeah" and now our minds are completely blown. So basically Ed could literally get secretly married at any time and we'd have absolutely no idea because he's already wearing a ring! Genius!!!!

Following the news of The Cranberries singer Dolores O’Riordan’s sudden death at the age of 46, the remaining members of the band have spoken out about their grief. “We are devastated on the passing of our friend Dolores,” Fergal Lawler, Noel and Mike Hogan wrote in a joint statement on social media. “She was an extraordinary talent and we feel very privileged to have been part of her life from 1989 when we started the Cranberries. The world has lost a true artist today,” they added.
You can take the girl out of country, but you can't take country out of the girl. Taylor Swift pivoted toward pop with her synth-laden 2014 album 1989 and audacious latest effort Reputation, out Friday. Yet the Nashville transplant hasn't entirely abandoned her country roots. In fact, Swift earned her 12th Country Music Association Award Wednesday, taking home song of the year for writing Little Big Town's Better Man. The four-piece group's Karen Fairchild accepted the award on behalf of Swift, the sole writer on the breakup ballad who was not in attendance at the ceremony. "Taylor, wherever you are, thank you for this beautiful song and for loving songs and loving Nashville," Fairchild said. Swift, who is performing on Saturday Night Live this weekend, posted her stunned reaction to the honor on social media, writing, "In NYC for SNL rehearsals. I LOVE YOU @littlebigtown and CMAs." Better Man marks the first song of the year CMA for Swift, who previously picked up the show's top trophies for entertainer of the year and album of the year (Fearless).
