Ever since he dropped his two new singles last week, Ed Sheeran has been the talk of the music world.

Yesterday, he revealed that he’s looking for céilí dancers to star in a video for his new trad song, and this morning he tweeted out an image that looked distinctly like the track list for his new album.

Curiously, it features a song called Galway Girl:

We don’t know if it’s an acoustic cover of the Steve Earle/Mundy banger, or his own track (probably the latter) but needless to say people are excited:

We await clarification on this important matter – but it’s probably safe to say that this is the video that he needs the céilí dancers for.


Spencer Pratt has revealed that he contacted the man behind the Kim Kardashian sex tape to look into doing his own with wife Heidi Montag.

Eh, OK.

Speaking in the latest issue of Heat, the current Celebrity Big Brother contestant outlined the reasons why it never came to pass:

I talked to the guy who did Kim Kardashian’s sex tape. There’s no up front money. And the negativity? It’s tiresome. But more importantly, Heidi was like, ‘Over my dead body!

You’d think Heidi’s objection would be the first thing he’d mention, but the lack of cash up front was the real kicker. (Mirror)

In other semi-related Celebrity Big Brother and Kim Kardashian news, ex Ray J quit the show last night.

TMZ is claiming that was suffering intense tooth pain and had to be taken to hospital. He FaceTimed them to say:

I have a bad tooth problem and I’ve been doing this show Big Brother for about seven-and-a-half days.
I’ve had this pain for three-and-a-half days. It got to the point where some of the people in the house thought I was being ignored.

Now he reportedly wants back in, so brace yourself for more as it happens.
