Ed Sheeran performs (raps) new song off album






[Lyrics]

[Verse 1]
I was born inside a small town, I've lost that state of mind
Learned to sing inside the Lord's house, but stopped at the age of nine
I forget when I get awards now the wave I had to ride
The paving stones I played upon, they kept me on the grind
So blame it on the pain that blessed me with the life
Friends and family filled with envy when they should be filled with pride
And when the world's against me is when I really come alive
And everyday that Satan tempts me, I try to take it in my stride
You know that I've got whisky with white lines and smoke in my lungs
I think life has got to the point I know without it's no fun
I need to get in the right mind and clear myself up
Instead, I look in the mirror questioning what I've become
I guess it's a stereotypical day for someone like me
Without a nine-to-five job or an uni degree
To be caught up in the trappings of the industry
They showed me the locked doors I find another use of key
And you'll see

[Chorus 1]
I'm well aware of certain things that will destroy a man like me
But with that said give me one more, higher
Another one to take the sting away
I am happy on my own, so here I'll stay
Save your lovin' arms for a rainy day
And I'll find comfort in my pain
Eraser

[Verse 2]
I used to think that nothing could be better than touring the world with my songs
I chased the pictured perfect life, I think they painted it wrong
I think that money is the root of evil and fame is hell
Relationships and hearts you fixed, they break as well
And ain't nobody wanna see you down in the dumps
Because you're living your dream, man, this shit should be fun
Please know that I'm not trying to preach like I'm Reverend Run
I beg you, don't be disappointed with the man I've become
Our conversations with my father on the A14
Age twelve telling me I've gotta chase those dreams
Now I'm playing for the people, dad, and they know me
With my beat and small guitar wearing the same old jeans
Wembley Stadium crowd two hundred and forty thou
I may have grown up but I hope that Damien's proud
And to the next generation, inspiration's allowed
The world may be filled with hate but keep erasing it now
Somehow

[Chorus 2]
I'm well aware of certain things that will befall a man like me
But with that said give me one more, higher
Another one to take the sting away
I am not beyond my own, so here I'll stay
Save your lovin arms for a rainy day
And I'll find comfort in my pain
Eraser
And I'll find comfort in my pain
Eraser
And I'll find comfort in my pain
Eraser

[Verse 3] (only in Extended F64 version)
I woke up this morning lookin' in the mirror
Thinkin' to myself that I should probably be thinner
The industry told me to look like them
But I found my happiness in fried food for my dinner
I wish that she could have been my first time
And I wish that I'd never took that first line
And I wish that every word in this verse rhymed
But forgive me if it doesn't
I wish that I could make peace with my older cousin
I wish he didn't think that it was me when it wasn't
I wish I didn't love it when I'm high and my face feels buzzin'
And the taste stays underneath my tongue
Wish that I had known what to do as a youngling
Wish I hadn't dropped out of school and missed every single party
With that hardly matters now, man, does it?
Wish I had an answer to everything, but fuck it
I wish creatin' art didn't come with a budget
But while we're on the subject
I wish my private life would have never gone public
But that's the sacrifice that we make
Spendin' my whole time high livin' life away

[Chorus 3] (only in Extended F64 version)
Singin' this is how we're livin' down here
Sittin' on the edge, lookin' out without fear
Yeah, we got drama but you know we don't care
I wanna see you sing it, put your hands in the air, one wish
I'm singin' this is how we're livin' down here
Sittin' on the edge, lookin' out without fear
Yeah, we got drama but you know we don't care
I wanna see you sing it, put your hands in the air, one wish

[Verse 4] (only in Extended F64 version)
I wish my family and friends they stay healthy
I wish that love was a currency and the whole world was wealthy
I found myself late night wishin' on a star
Everyday I wish I'd never broken a heart, uh
And I wish I'd never run to
Every woman that I loved that kept my life and what it's come to
I wish I was the role model you looked up to
If I told my fans the things I did they'd say, "Fuck you"
I wish I was home more
I wish my teens could see the kids on the birthdays, but yo, we're on tour
And I wish I'd grow more, wish I told more
People that I love 'em but it's in the music that I'm known for
And I wish he never got cancer
And if I smoke a pack a day, well, does that make me a wanker?
Oh yes, I guess it does, and we're still stressin' 'cause
Every day this shit gets the best of us
Usin' my balance on eraser blades
Spendin' my whole time high wishing life would wait

[Chorus 3] (only in Extended F64 version)
Singin' this is how we're livin' down here
Sittin' on the edge, lookin' out without fear
Yeah, we got drama but you know we don't care
I wanna see you sing it, put your hands in the air, one wish
I'm singin' this is how we're livin' down here
Sittin' on the edge, lookin' out without fear
Yeah, we got drama but you know we don't care
I wanna see you sing it, put your hands in the air, one wish

[Verse 5] (only in Extended F64 version)
I'm using jumpers for goalposts, cigarettes for throat cold
Mum sayin', "Don't smoke," no, I don't listen, I got
Love for a ghost note, shows on the gold coast
People that I don't know share the same vision
I find truth in the hard times and words that aren't mine
Tryin' to find a love with a compatible star sign
Sometimes I can't write, sentences can't rhyme
Starin' at my notepad quick, I'm tryin' to find mine
Shit, quick before I hit it again
Surrounded in the industry by all these ignorant men
And who knew that I'd be paid just to pick up a pen
Just let me hit the studio when we can rip it again
I'm a [?] addict with an adrenaline kick
My daddy told me work hard and you can never be shit
I've seen all my heroes dethroned except my dad
Set back here reminiscing 'bout the times we had
One wish

[Bridge] (only in the normal version)
Welcome to the new show
I guess you know I've been away
But where I'm heading, who knows
But my heart will stay the same
Welcome to the new show
I guess you know I've been away
But where I'm heading, who knows
My pain
Eraser

[Hook] (only in the normal version)
And I'll find comfort in my pain
Eraser
And I'll find comfort in my pain

And I'll find comfort in my pain

And I'll find comfort in my pain

BBT cast take pay cut to help Mayim Bialik, Melissa Rauch get raises


Ahead of the expected two-season renewal Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg, and Kunal Nayyar have reportedly taken pay cuts in order to get Melissa Rauch and Mayim Bialik raises.

The original five stars ($1 million per episode) would make $100,000 less per episode in a potential 11th and 12th seasons.

That $500,000 would be split between Rauch and Bialik, who are both currently in the $200,000 range, bringing their new per episode rate to around $450,000.

Accountants blamed for Oscar screw up will not be invited back




  • "A spokesperson for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences said PwC accountants Brian Cullinan and Martha Ruiz will no longer tabulate Oscar votes and hand out envelopes containing winners' names at Hollywood's most prestigious awards ceremony."

  • "PwC said Cullinan had mistakenly handed presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway, who were announcing the best picture winner, the back-up envelope for Actress in a Leading Role instead of the envelope for Best Picture."

  • "Once the error occurred, protocols for correcting it were not followed through quickly enough by Mr. Cullinan or his partner," the accounting firm said in a statement.

  • Cullinan had posted a now-deleted backstage photo of actress Emma Stone after she won her best actress Oscar on Twitter minutes before the mix-up.

Anne Rice's 'The Mummy or Ramses the Damned' finally to receive a sequel after nearly 30 years

A few months ago Anne Rice and her son, author Christopher Rice, began dropping hints about collaborating on a secret project together. Now after months of speculation the secret project has been revealed to be a sequel to Anne Rice's novel The Mummy or Ramses the Damned called Ramses the Damned: The Passion of Cleopatra.

Anne Rice's original novel was published back in 1989 and has been a source of frustrations for many fans for decades as the novel ends with the phrase "To Be Continued". While a graphic novel adaptation was published and James Cameron obtained the rights to make a film back in the 90s that never came to fruition the aforementioned sequel never actually occurred... until now.

Ramses the Damned: The Passion of Cleopatra is set to release on November 21st. They're also running a promotion now where if you pre-order you will get a signed page from the original manuscript.

Ariana Grande on the cover of Cosmopolitan



On being strong & having a voice: “A lot of times, women are labeled as a bitch or a diva for having a vision and being strong and using their voice, and it’s just not the case. You can be strong and be friendly. [We] don’t have to be just one thing."

On falling in love/relationships: “I’ve never looked at love as something that I need to complete me. I would like to be complete on my own first and fall in love with somebody who is also complete. You can still celebrate and be totally obsessed with each other, but I want to feel a hundred percent myself so that I can love that person better.”

On her relationship with Mac: “I met him when I was 19. We have loved and adored and respected each other since the beginning, since before we even met, just because we were fans of each other’s talent. We weren’t ready at all, though, to be together. It’s just timing.”

On Madonna: “I have the utmost respect for that woman. I love her with every ounce of my being, and not just because I’m obsessed with her entire discography. I’m so inspired by her bravery and her strength. I can look at her and not be scared to be strong.”

Nice cover she toned down the brown face. ONTD, are you a serial monogamist?

Demi Lovato is Tired of People Using "Bipolar" Incorrectly



Demi Lovato has always been an outspoken advocate for those suffering from mental health issues. She's even the executive producer of a new documentary on individuals dealing with mental illnesses, Beyond Silence. She also recently spoke to Marie Claire about her own struggles and her activism. Here's some highlights from the interview:

  • "I get frustrated when people use the term 'bipolar' loosely. Like, they say 'Oh, I can't decide what movie to watch, I'm so bipolar.' You don't say, 'I can't decide what movie to watch, I'm so cancer.'"
  • "There's a stigma surrounding mental health issues because nobody talks about it. When you spread awareness and create conversation, that's when you realize mental health conditions aren't anything out of the norm. They're very common. They shouldn't be judged. They should be accepted."
  • "It's incredible what Kate Middleton is doing. If we had more people over here doing that, maybe there would be less stigma in the United States."
  • "Anytime you aren't creating conversation about what mental health really is, you're opening it up to a bunch of negativity. It's important to remember that the vast majority of people living with mental health conditions aren't violent. They're ten times more likely to be the victims of a violent crime."

    Adrian Grenier asks you to #InvestInHer

    In the week leading up to International Women’s Day on March 8, Kiva is aiming to crowdfund $3 million in loans to women.

    • On Kiva, people can make $25 loans to entrepreneurs throughout the world to help them start a business, go to school, access clean energy, or invest in their community.

    • This week, Kiva is asking people to #InvestInHer by making a loan to a female entrepreneur in honor of International Women’s Day.

    Adrian Grenier has promoted #InvestInHer, and you can use the link in his tweet to sign up for the free trial that will allow you to make your first loan for free this week.

    • Normally, people lend $25, then they receive payments back from that loan and can use it to make another loan once it’s paid back. It’s a really cool way to keep helping people with only a small investment from you. For example, I have made 30 loans on this site, totaling $750, but only using $89 of my own money. I just continue to re-lend the $25 over and over.

    • But this week - new users will receive $25 at no cost to them to make their first loan. So check it out! You can find better instructions at the site, but it's really simple.

    How it works is, people choose a project from THIS LIST and sign up to make a loan.

    Some of the women you can lend your $25 to include:

    • Mansata's Group in Senegal is asking for a loan of $5,275 to help a member purchase ingredients for her pastry shop.

    • Duan's Group in Vietnam is asking for a loan of $3,175 to help a member raise breeding goats to get additional income for her family.

    • The Sreyneth Group in Cambodia is asking for a loan of $2,825 to help a member raise cows.

    Ed Sheeran is desperate to make sure no artists steal his spotlight; spills when Taylor will release

    Ed Sheeran is releasing this year because everyone he was scared of (Beyonce, Bruno Mars, the Weeknd) already released last year. Ed and his team are hoping that  2017 will be his year and that he'll have an "Adele" moment. Ed is sure that he'll have the spotlight because Taylor will be releasing at the end of the year to get the Christmas sales boost.

    Source: Twitter

    Lmao is Taylor gonna change the release date and send Taylor Nation after Ed now for leaking when she would release? Ed's thirst and desperation for sales and validation is insane. Saying that he would avoid releasing during the grammy eligibilty period because Adele would win everything; the only artist he hasn't outsold is Adele and that he will one day (that isn't even true since 1989 outsold X); he didn't release in November because of the election, Bruno, and the Weeknd; he'll be #1 and 2017 will be his year no matter what; etc.
