Bieber, Alicia Vikander, and Ed Sheeran... it's our celeb winners and losers of the week

Some will win, some will lose.

DailyEdge praises those who rocked the week in celebland, while keeping a watchful eye on those who should just log off forever.

Justin Bieber

The Biebs was in Ireland this week to play a gig in the RDS on Wednesday night. Between a spot of basketball in Bushy Park, he hung out in Maynooth at Picadero’s restuarant. They named a wrap after him, the Chicken Despacito Wrap, which would make him a winner on any other week.

But it’s the falling on his arse that really got to us.

Ed Sheeran

Ed, listen up. You’re rich and famous, you can have anything you want. The popstar is playing Glastonbury this weekend and his rider is ridiculously simple.

It consists of a load of soft drinks, basically. Reports in The Sun say his rockstar request is:

  • 1 Bottle of Robinson’s orange squash
  • 1 jar of Manuka Honey
  • 6 cans of Fanta Orange
  • 6 cans of Coca-Cola
  • 6 cans of Diet Coke
  • 6 cans of Sprite

Ed, is apparently bringing Oisin and the lads to his big Glasto debut, but where are the tinnies? The bowl of Skittles, red-only?

Live a little, Ed.


Lorde almost fell foul of Taylor Swift’s infamous ‘squad’ this week. During an interview with the Guardian, Lorde commented about how hard it was maintaining a friendship with someone as famous as Taylor Swift.

It’s like having a friend with very specific allergies. There are certain places you can’t go together. Certain things you can’t do. There are these different sets of considerations within the friendship. It’s like having a friend with an autoimmune disease.

People ate her.


Lorde apologised… swiftly.


And the winners…

Chrissy Teigen

Chrissy Teigen shot down a fan questioning her use of IVF to have a child. Chrissy Teigen and John Legend share lovely little Luna together, who was conceived via IVF after years of trying.

She tweeted about a remaining embryo on Tuesday, and the rent it owes.

Naturally, someone came for her, but she was having none of it.


Yep, tick that off as a win.


Ryan Phillippe

Fake Marine in Fauxghanistan - 2017 (but the love is real & so's the exhaustion)

A post shared by @ryanphillippe on

Ryan Phillippe, aka your crush after seeing Cruel Intentions, is a winner this week. Why? Because he inexplicably used quotes from our TD survey about Beyoncé on his Instagram story on Thursday.



Love you too, Ryan.

Alicia Vikander

Our gal is living the dream. She took an Oscar home last year, and now she’s moving Ireland’s biggest ride home too. It’s been reported that Alicia Vikander and Michael Fassbender have moved in together, after three years of dating.

Sources tell the Sun:

He’d never properly lived with a girlfriend before but they are seriously loved up. They have a lot of places they call home but this is the only place that is officially both of theirs and they are thrilled.

What’s next? Marriage? Help.
