Ed Sheeran lodges plans for private chapel at Suffolk home

The 27-year-old, who lives near Framlingham, has submitted a planning application to Suffolk Coastal District Council.

It comes after he announced his engagement to long-time girlfriend Cherry Seaborn in January.

The plans say some of Sheeran's guests have "high profiles" and a "need for discretion" which would not be met at local parish church.

According to the planning application, the chapel would be of made of flint and in a Saxon style with a 14.6m (48ft) round tower.

Ed Sheeran accidentally bumped off in Icelandic obituary

Why? Turns out Mr Sigurðsson was an Ed Sheeran tribute performer in his spare time. Not sure what this says about the fresh-faced British singer, who at the tender age of 27 has just got himself a Mrs Sheeran-to-be. Maybe time to start having the odd facial, Ed?

Or perhaps octagenarian Mr Sigurðsson was the only ginger in the village...?

Ed is apparently too busy buying up a country estate in Suffolk to comment.

 

     

Ed Sheeran is engaged

"Got myself a fiancé just before new year," he wrote on an Instagram photo of them together posted on Sunday morning.

"We are very happy and in love, and our cats are chuffed as well xx."

Sheeran, 26, and Seaborn, 25 went to high school together in Suffolk, and started dating in 2015.

A wedding date has not yet been announced.

     

How Taylor Swift almost had 2017's biggest album

The star outsold every other artist in the US last year - shifting 1.9 million copies of her fifth record, Reputation, in just seven weeks.

But her decision to withhold it from streaming services until December damaged its chances in the chart of 2017's most popular albums.

That's because 1,500 streams now count as the equivalent of one album sale.

Beyonce 'unlikely' to use burner email

"I have an email address that I email - that actually changes every week," he said during an interview about working with her on a duet.

The reporter, from Entertainment Tonight, then suggested that Beyonce was good at "hiding" and he agreed.

He laughed during the interview but his comment has fuelled media speculation about Beyonce's commitment to privacy.

"It's kind of what I aspire to be, I think," he added.

The BBC has contacted representatives for both Ed Sheeran and Beyonce for comment.

Grammys: Ed Sheeran overlooked while Jay Z tops nominations

The star was edged out of contention by Bruno Mars and Kendrick Lamar, who each received multiple nominations.

Jay Z leads with eight nominations, including his first ever appearance in the album of the year list for 4:44, which comes 21 years after his debut.

Sheeran did receive several nominations in the pop categories, however.

Shape of You is up for best pop solo performance, while ÷ is shortlisted for best pop album.

Lady Gaga is also relegated to the pop categories for her recent album, Joanne, while Katy Perry fails to receive any nominations at all.

Not everyone is singing praises for Ed Sheeran's 'Game of Thrones' cameo

While on her way back from killing a lot of people on Sunday night's season premiere of "Game of Thrones," Arya Stark took some time to make some friends in the forest, namely a group of soldiers, singer Ed Sheeran among them.

Playing an unnamed solider, Sheeran had a chance to show off his pipes in the role, singing a tune that was pulled from the book source material, and offered Arya some cooked rabbit. He didn't have much dialogue beyond that.

Still, the appearance of a recognizable face like Sheeran was enough to irritate fans of the show's escapist world.

Has Ed Sheeran got secretly engaged?

During a Facebook Live chat, the Oscar winner referred to the hockey player as the singer's "fiancée".

"[Ed] was on tour here and he was getting a bit burned out so he came up and stayed at the farm for a couple of days to get some sleep and then we became conversational mates," he said.

"He has subsequently gone back to the farm with his fiancée for more time."

Ed Sheeran has admitted recently that he wants to settle down.

Ed Sheeran left with 'Galway grill' after tattoo typo

The 26-year-old said he wanted to be inked with the name of his latest single but was pranked by Oscar-nominated actress Saoirse Ronan.

The pair filmed a music video for the track in Ireland last week.

"When we were filming it, I meant to get a tattoo of her handwriting saying Galway Girl," he told fans at his show in Glasgow on Sunday.

"It actually says Galway Grill. G-r-i-l-l."

Ed Sheeran said he was proud of who did it and said it was the kind of thing he'd do.

"Like, full on, she really took the [rip] out of me with this one."

How Ed Sheeran helped Harry Styles with Debut

"I played him a few songs after the album was finished," Harry told the Radio 1 Breakfast Show.

"He didn't say that he didn't like any but he did like one song that isn't on the album."

Ignoring the advice of one of the most successful singer-songwriters might not be a good idea, but Harry says he still decided to leave it off the album.

"He [Ed] is really good - he's one of the most talented dudes I know," he said.
