It’s so annoying when you’re fangirling to your mum about your fave and it suddenly autocorrects Justin Bieber to Justin bibber. Is bibber even a word?!

So, we all know Ed Sheeran is currently off on his extended break following the success of his massive second album ‘x’ and ridiculously successful world tour which saw him sell out THREE consecutive nights at Wembley Stadium.
But it looks like Ed may be back with us sooner than we thought. Try to stay calm.
Back in December, Ed announced that he was taking a break from social media by posting a message on his Instagram page.
Things have generally been pretty quiet with Ed until a few weeks ago, when Ed was spotted vacationing in Nigeria with fellow artist Fuse ODG, where he’s also thought to be recording new music with Fuse.

Last week the UK made a historic decision to leave the EU and the current Prime Minister, David Cameron, announced that he will stand down to make way for another PM by October.
We’ve always thought that our favourite pop stars could do a better job of running the country, in fact they kinda do already, but why not make it official? So we’re holding our very own General Election to choose who you would like to get the next Prime Minister.
Let’s meet the candidates!

Cast your minds back to 2011, the year of Keek and the musical births of One Direction and Ed Sheeran. Ahh simpler times and Zayn was still in 1D. We’re not crying, it’s allergies.
In this throwback video clip, Niall and Harry make some not-so-sweet tunes on their guitars (no offence), whilst Ed raps about Harry, and Liam stares lovingly at Ed. #Ediam aka worst ship name ever. We have no idea where Louis and Zayn are but they were probs frolicking in the fields somewhere.

Our mums try to get us to eat fruit by any means possible! They say fruit is nature’s sweets, but it’s hard to see nature matching up to our fave pick ‘n mix (blue and pink fizzy cola bottles, FYI). You don’t see many blue and pink fruits, do you now?
But some pop stars literally can’t stop eating the stuff! Maybe they’re just vitamin C deficient from all that touring and performing or maybe they just find it so finger lickin’ good like RiRi.
1) Taylor Swift is an amazing role model, promoting worldwide healthy eating through her music.
Just look at her tucking into this nice crunchy apple. Not all her friends are as health conscious however…
2) Taylor’s BFF Selena is also partial to a Red Delicious. She has a funny way of eating ’em though.
3) Justin Timberlake certainly gets a decent amount of potassium as evidenced by his new video for ‘Can’t Stop the Feeling’ (and by that HOT bod of his )
