Ed Sheeran Reveals He Thinks Only 12 Percent Of His Songs Are Good

Ed Sheeran Thinks About 12 percent of his songs are goodEd Sheeran sat down to chat with the BBC about his early career, his writing process and what an awkward kid he was.  Ed shared the moment in his life when he knew music was his path forward: hearing Eric Clapton play “Layla” for the Queen of England’s Golden Jubilee.

“That day I said, ‘I want to be a musician. I want to play guitar,'” Ed shared. “I got a guitar for Christmas and that was the first song I learned.” The BBC called it “a rather unusual source” for Ed’s music to spring from despite the bevy of English singer-songwriters inspired by Clapton.

Ed does have a habit of setting himself apart from the crowd, though. As he found himself blending into the singer-songwriter scene, he decided he’d be more a novelty with a different crowd: London’s hip-hop community.

Shawn Mendes Tries To Be Cool In Capital FM’s “Instaoke”

Shawn Mendes InstaokeShawn Mendes stopped by Capital FM for a quick game of “Instaoke.” He attempted songs by Zayn Malik, Eminem and Rihanna. Shawn apparently hasn’t heard Zayn’s debut single “Pillowtalk,” because he seemed to be making up his own lyrics. The Canadian then tried to get a little street cred rapping along to “The Real Slim Shady.”

Hear Shawn’s covers below and listen to his attempt at Rihanna’s “Work” here.

Justin Bieber Wins Big At MTV’s European Music Awards

MTV EMA's 2015 - Winners RoomJustin Bieber took home the most awards of any artist at last night’s 2015 MTV European Music Awards, which was held at the Mediolanum Forum in Milan. The singer was nominated for six awards and took home a total of five: Best Look, Best Collaboration, Best Fans, Best Worldwide Act: North America, and his sixth Best Male in a row.

Apparently because it was such a big occasion, Justin dressed up in what looked like red pajamas, a maroon hoodie and the two-tone grey trucker’s cap he’s been wearing a lot recently.

The wins at this year’s EMAs mean that Justin has now received the most EMAs, in total, of any artist in history. Justin’s latest haul of five awards last night put him at 17 over the course of his career, two ahead of Eminem’s liftetime total of 15.

During the event, Justin also performed his number one hit, “What Do You Mean?”

Watch clips of Justin’s performance and an after-the-event interview, as well as some more pics in the gallery.

The Weeknd Performs New Remix of “The Hills” in a Surprise Duet with Nicki Minaj on “Saturday Night Live”

The Weeknd And Nicki Minaj On SNLLast night, The Weeknd was the musical guest on “Saturday Night Live.” The episode’s host, comedienne Amy Schumer, introduced the The Weeknd’s performances of “The Hills” and “I Can’t Feel My Face.” But it was The Weeknd’s rendition of “The Hills” that had the normally hard-to-impress “SNL” crowd on its feet.

Halfway through what seemed like a slightly different arrangement for “The Hills,” the “SNL” crowd began screaming as rapper Nicki Minaj walked out to center stage to perform a new verse that began with an abrupt opening line.

“Remember that time that I showed up with just panties under my coat?”

The Weeknd just released two new remixes of “The Hills” – one with Nicki and the other with a psychotic-sounding Eminem. But Saturday was Nicki’s night, and she didn’t hesitate to steal the show.

View both of The Weeknd’s performances from last night below.
