ED SHEERAN CONFIRMS HE’S MARRIED ON NEW ALBUM, TALKS SOCIAL ANXIETY & MORE ED NEWS – (07/15/2019)
Following months of speculation, Ed Sheeran has finally confirmed he tied the knot with Cherry Seaborn. He dropped the news on his new album No.6 Collaborations Project, which was released Friday.
In his song “Remember the Name” featuring Eminem and 50 Cent, Sheeran sings, “Watch how the lyrics in this song might get twisted/ My wife wears red but looks better without the lipstick.”
Sheeran got personal with Charlamagne Tha God for what will reportedly be the singer-songwriter’s only interview for his No.6 Collaborations Project album. In the interview, Sheeran talked about being yourself, marriage and his latest collaborations with artists including Cardi B and Travis Scott.
“The fact is, I’ve already achieved more than I thought I could. So now I’m at a point where I’m just having fun,” Sheeran said.
Sheeran’s collaborations album also features the singles “I Don’t Care” with Justin Bieber and “Cross Me” featuring Chance the Rapper and PnB Rock.
After recording his verse on “Remember the Name” Sheeran planned to include Em and 50 on the record, which Sheeran said he “wished into existence.” Before playing a gig with Eminem in London, Sheeran suggested the collaboration in a chance encounter with the pair of hip-hop superstars.
[“I walked in to Eminem’s dressing room, and it’s him and 50 Cent in there. I was like, this has to be meant to be!”]
Sheeran also touched on his personal connection to Eminem.:
[“I really relate to him, even more so now. As a kid I related to him just because I felt like a bit of an outcast, but even now like the way that we’ve both stuck in our hometowns, we both live here, we both got to a level where you’re so famous you cannot go outside.”]
Sheeran also confirmed his marriage to longtime partner, Cherry Seaborn, which was subtly revealed in the “Remember the Name” lyric.
[“It was actually before me and Cherry got married. and I knew that we’d be married by the point that the song came out.” Sheeran added, “‘Cause someone’s gonna hear that and be like, ‘Oh, they’re married!’”]
Sheeran also referenced the nuptials when discussing the lead single from the record, “I Don’t Care” featuring Justin Bieber. “Bieber just got married. I’d just got married,” he explained. “That song is about being at an industry event with the woman you love, or the person you love, and kind of being like, ‘F*ck this, let’s just have fun ourselves’.” He added, “It was actually Cherry’s idea, because she was like, ‘Oh, why don’t you get Bieber? Like, he’d be perfect for this … it just fits.’“
In other Ed News, “South of the Border,” Ed Sheeran’s new collaboration with Camila Cabello and Cardi B, has gotten the lyric video treatment. “South of the Border” is another one of the 15 collaborative tracks on Sheeran’s No. 6 Collaborations Project.
And Sheeran and Travis Scott’s whimsical new music video for “Antisocial,” is also out now. Directed by Dave Meyers, it features lots of different sets, costume changes, and wigs. The video pays tribute to various classic films, including possible references to Edward Scissorhands, The Mask, The Birds, The Martian, and Pulp Fiction.
Ed shared some of the silly behind-the-scenes moments from the making of “Antisocial.” In one clip, Sheeran is seen getting fitted for a frizzy ginger wig and cracking a joke about meeting a small dog that’s featured in the video. Another shows him getting cozy on the couch in a white robe sporting another long-haired hairpiece.
Also, during his interview with Charlamagne Tha God, Ed opened up about his mental health struggles and reveals he often feels “claustrophobic” and like “a zoo animal.” He also admits that he only trusts a handful of friends. The 28-year-old singer admitted: “I get anxiety every day.” Ed explained how he deals with it:
[“I’ve been working on it for eight years. Whether it’s getting rid of your phone or only looking at emails twice a day. Or cutting down my friendship group to the bare minimum just so I can trust everyone.”]
