Today I would like to pay homage to Ed Sheeran, the coolest and arguably most talented Brit/ginger man alive. If you haven’t heard his album + yet, your ears have been seriously deprived.
His story is pretty rad, you can read all about it on his wiki here. Long story short, he went from being a school dropout, to a couch surfer and is now nominated for a Grammy for his song “The A Team.” Not too shabby. He has already won a few Brit awards this year and will be going to be going on tour with Taylor Swift in 2013. Can you hear the money pouring in? Cha-chiiiiiiing. You go Ed Sheeran.
But the thing that makes me love Ed Sheeran unconditionally in addition to his music? His music videos. Because he is sassy and hilarious while still being amazing.
In “Lego House” he brings in the one and only Rupert Grint aka Ron Weasley to play his stalker throughout the music video because they are basically twins. IDENTICAL TWINS. And in his video for “Drunk” he literally parties with a cat. He pre-games in his apartment with a cat, goes to the bars with a cat and then throws a party at his apartment with a cat. Who talks to him throughout the entire music video. He just gets me.

Fun Facts: his debut album sold a million copies in the UK and is up to 2 million worldwide, Jamie Foxx heard him ata open mike and let him use his studio (before he was even signed to a major label), and Elton John loves him. So he’s pretty much set for life.
Then he goes and does this and millions of people fall in love with him.
