Huge news from Ed today! His cracker of an album ‘x’ has reached million-selling status in the UK! Our little cupcake is the first artist to achieve this within a calendar year since Emeli Sande, with ‘Our Version of Events’ in 2012.
We didn’t know this was coming and we’re not feeling too good at the moment.
‘Make It Rain’ is taken from the ‘Sons of Anarchy’ soundtrack and is a whopping 6 minutes 42 seconds long.
Released a brand new song today, check it out – http://t.co/wJvmV4HNk3

I released a brand new song today on iTunes. I did a cover of @foyvance for the penultimate sons of anarchy episode, I’m really proud of it

So while Edward is munching on a Greggs sausage roll, you should probably shimmy over to the iTunes store and press download on it now. 99p well spent in our opinion. Download ‘Make It Rain’ here.
Pop’s nicest man, Ed Sheeran, is donating some clothes to a charity auction that helps raise money for EACH’s ‘Nook’ appeal.
He told fans on Twitter they will be able to bid on clothing that used to belong to him and the money raised will be donated to East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices.
There’s like a variety of hoodies and T-shirts (how very signature Ed) including a ‘Purrvana’ top, a green Ralph Lauren hoody and a hilarious ‘Ginger is Coming’ tee.
Ed is giving you not only a second chance but a third chance to be at his headline show at Wembley Stadium on Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th July 2015.

There’s Twitter takeovers, signings, gigs and live streams happening today. Is it Christmas or something?!
This year has basically been the year of the Sheeran. In fact some people call him the Sheerinator. Okay we lied, that’s just us and it won’t catch on.

Time to get down on Friday.
We’ve got another 3 chances for you to win a copy of Ed Sheeran’s blooming marvellous book, ‘A Visual Journey’. Take a sneak peak of what’s inside including some illustrations of his cute face.
Just when we thought we had finished writing our Christmas lists to Santa (all members of 1D are on the top, FYI), Ed sheeran sends this cute little tweet about his mum’s handiwork and how we can buy it… and then we had to run to the nearest pound shop to get more paper.
My mum makes the coolest jewellery, and Christmas is coming, go onto http://t.co/Ox8spwGDP5 and have a look. She ships worldwide x

There’s so many beautiful pieces on there! Here’s some of our faves…
There’s also lots of designs that aren’t Ed inspired but still extremely cute! So much merch. So little money. We need it all.
If you fancy getting us a present this year, you know what to get us.

If you’re unfamiliar with the annual Victoria’s Secret fashion show, it’s basically a very fancy catwalk display of extremely impractical and expensive (but very pretty) underwear worn by some of the most famous and in demand models in the world. Oh, and they all wear wings for some reason.
However if you’re anything like us in MP! Towers you’ll know its also one of the best places to see some of the biggest pop stars around perform alongside the be-winged beauties, AND it’s in London for the very first time this year. Hurrah! Our very own Neon Jungle even performed last year and got to rub shoulders with none other than Taylor Swift. JEALOUS.
Well this year Swiftie is back again to shake it out onstage along with Ed Sheeran, Irish singer song writer Hozier, and the amazing Ariana Grande. Sounds pretty fab, right? The show isn’t until December 9th and we’re probably going to have to watch it on YouTube because we’re not glam or rich enough to get a ticket, but it promises to be a good ‘un!
