Ed Sheeran Announces He Is Making His Own Boy Band

Ed Sheeran announces tour and boy bandEd Sheeran appeared on the “TODAY” show on Wednesday morning and had some huge announcements to make. The first bit of news Ed had for viewers and fans was that the singer will be embarking on a four-month tour. The singer will kick off his 48 tour dates on June 29th and will continue until October 6th.

The second big announcement revealed was that he will be creating a boy band. “I have a bunch of songs that I think are really really good boy band pop songs,” the singer said. Ed did admit that he would consider keeping the songs for himself, but they are just too pop for his style of music. “There’s one called ‘South of the Border’ that’s a bit like funky,” Ed described while dancing.

Ed then hit the outside stage to perform the morning show’s first Citi concert series.

Louis Tomlinson’s One Direction Update Doesn’t Sound Too Promising

Louis Tomlinson on TODAY showLouis Tomlinson appeared on the “TODAY” show early Friday morning promoting his debut single “Just Hold On” along with Steve Aoki. The singer was able to quickly speak with hosts Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie to give an update on the future of One Direction.

“We’re all just kind of enjoying a bit of time to ourselves and you know exploring our own solo things,” he said. That may not sound too promising to Directioners who were under the assumption this hiatus was only going to last a year.

Lady Gaga Opens Up About Her PTSD Resulting From Her Rape At 19

Lady Gaga Reveals Her Struggle With PTSDLady Gaga’s recent visit to an LGBTQ center in New York wasn’t just a chance for her to give some gifts and sing to the homeless youth there. It was an opportunity for her to open up about something she’s been dealing with for years. NBC’s “TODAY” cameras were rolling as she gathered a group for meditation and explained that she uses the tactic to help her cope with her past. When “TODAY” asked her about her motivation during an interview, Gaga explained she’s been living with post traumatic stress disorder since she was a teenager.

“I suffer from PTSD,” Gaga confessed. “I’ve never told anyone that before, so here we are.” While Gaga didn’t say it herself, “TODAY” connected the dots to figure out that her condition stems from her sexual assault at age 19. Gaga has discussed her assault before, but not her mental illness that resulted from the incident.

“The kindness that’s been shown to me–by doctors, as well as my family and my friends–it’s really saved my life,” Gaga said. She explained that she’s found that kindness is a healing force. “I’ve been searching for ways to heal myself, and I’ve found that kindness is the best way.”

Hairspray Live Cast Talk The Show's Powerful Relevance And Tearful RehearsalsThe cast of  NBC’s upcoming musical event “Hairspray Live!” stopped by the “TODAY” show Monday morning. Ariana Grande and her cast mates discuss their excitement and how powerfully relevant the musical is during a time of racial unrest.

“It’s such a dream,” Ariana says about being included in the musical. “It’s truly inspiring and exciting and electrifying.”

As a musical, “Hairspray” tackles 1960s racial segregation with an inspiring upbeat twist. Jennifer Hudson feels that performing this piece as a televised musical today is truly relevant and much-needed. “Even in this, we are marching,” she says. “You’re trying to find a way to come together.”

The entire cast echoes her thoughts and Ariana suggests that viewers of the live show might want to expect a few tears. “We’ve been rehearsing and have been moved to tears literally every single time,” she says of the show’s powerful message. “It’s going to be so hard not to cry on the day.”

“The arts has the power to change lives,” Kristin Chenoweth urges viewers to remember. The members of the cast all agree.

Check out the full interview below.

“Hairspray Live!” airs December 7 on NBC at 8/7 CT.
