Teenage Kicks #013: Ed Sheeran’s red Nike trainers

Welcome back to Teenage Kicks! Where we search for the most stylish shoes of pop land. Who’s feet will we peak at today?

Ed Sheeran Shoes

We stumbled across these very loud coloured shoes that he wore to Elton John’s Oscar party back last year and we just had find out where to get them!

It seems as though the shoes, Air Yeezy 2 Red October sneakers, are sold out. However, we did find a place (besides eBay) that still sell them. You can get the sneakers from eCarter for a whopping £324.80! If you have a shoe obsession, this might be a pair to save for or ask santa kindly in advance.

If you happen to buy these shoes, make sure you snap a shoesie (shoe selfie) and tweet them to @maximumpop along with #MPTeenageKicks so we can see your sweet feet treat.

Brit Awards 2015: The good, the bad, and the ugly (and the falls)

Last night we saw the UK tune into the Brit Awards for a night of glamour and music, and what a night it was. With performances from the faaaab Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran and more, it really was an incredible night. So, in true MP! fashion, we’ve compiled a list of our favourite moments from the show.

1. Taylor Swift – Blank Space performance

Kicking things off is the amazing Taylor Swift who performed a stunning rendition of ‘Blank Space’ with full use of dancers, confetti and the catwalk (just don’t slip Taylor, please) Continue reading Brit Awards 2015: The good, the bad, and the ugly (and the falls)

Ed Sheeran covers Christina Aguilera in the Live Lounge. Things get very Dirrty.

All round good guy Ed Sheeran has popped down to the Radio 1 studios to perform in the Live Lounge and things turned a lil bit Dirrty…

We love a good #throwbackthursdaywednesday so were absolutely thrilled to hear that Ed was covering Christina Aguilera’s 2002 hit single ‘Dirrty’.

Unfortunately, there was a lot less slut dropping from Ed.

Stripping the track back and showing off his beautimous voice, Ed gives the song a whole new lease of live… ooh, how deep of us.

Take a listen to Ed Sheeran’s version of ‘Dirrty’ below:

The Fooo Conspiracy upload Ed Sheeran dance cover. We’re in actual love.

As if we couldn’t fancy those Fooo Conspiracy boys anymore, they’ve only gone and shown off their amazing dance (and singing of course) skills with a dance cover of our very own Ed Sheeran’s ‘Don’t’.

The Swedish studs, who are currently promoting their latest single ‘Roller Coaster’, performed just over one minute of the hit track and threw some shapes that have left us speechless.

We think this is definitely 100% love.

Check out the boys dancing around to ‘Don’t’ below. You can thank us later.

Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift get their very own game show. Kind of.

Forget Schoffers and Mr and Mrs, Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran have been given their own spin-off entitled Eds or Taylz.

Hosted by Nick Grimshaw, the show has found out the answer to the burning question the world has been asking for years: Who’s the better friend – Ed or Taylor?

tumblr_inline_mn5kkz5HhB1qz4rgp

Answering a series of questions about each other, Ed and Taylor were pushed to the friendship limits (maybe) and tested on how well they really know each other…

Unfortunately this new show won’t be aired anytime soon as it was a one-off special for Radio 1. Soz.

Anyway, make sure you check it out right here. Who knows? If there’s enough demand we might even get a full series…

Taylor Swift named IFPI Global Recording Artist of 2014. Let’s start 2015 in style.

Even Taylor Swift takes breaks between Taylurking her fans on Tumblr or looking smokin’ sexy in her music videos. On her last break, during her rehearsal for The BRIT Awards she slayed the music industry one more time.

International trade group IFPI crowned Taylor as Global Recording Artist of the year. The annual award honors the year’s top artist across physical sales, downloads and streaming worldwide. Even more impressively Taylor recently caused controversy when she pulled all her music from Spotify, so she basically smashed this with a fraction of it being streams. Impressive.
