Ed Sheeran Wants The Movie About His Life To Feel Like Eminem’s “8 Mile”

Ed Sheeran Wants The Movie About His Life To Feel Like Eminem's 8 Mile featureEd Sheeran is getting a biopic about his life and career. The 26-year-old singer/songwriter recently confessed that there’s a movie about him in the works, and he knows what he wants it to feel like. He’s drawing inspiration from Eminem’s gritty film about his life in Detroit, “8 Mile.”

“I want to have an ‘8 Mile’ moment but ‘8 Mile’ meets ‘Notting Hill’,” he said in a recent interview. It’ll be a hard contrast to stitch together as Eminem’s upbringing north of Detroit was very different from anything that happened in the Hugh Grant/Julia Roberts rom-com he mentioned.

“Not gritty like Detroit but, like, Ipswich,” Ed continued, referring to his idyllic hometown northeast of London. Ed knows how different his upbringing was from Eminem’s, even if his “Shape of You” video might not make it seem like it.

“I’ve got loads of songs about Ipswich that haven’t come out so I could make a soundtrack,” Ed added, doubling down on some comments he made in another interview earlier this year.

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.

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.
