Ed Sheeran is Married!

If you were holding out hope that you might end up with Ed Sheeran one day, I have some bad news for you. Ed Sheeran just confirmed that he is, in fact, married. A few months ago, rumors started circulating that he’d married long-time girlfriend Cherry Seaborn, and now the release of Ed’s new album, No. 6 Collaborations Project has straight up confirmed it.

Check out the song “Remember the Name,” where Ed references his WIFE in the lyrics.

Ed confirmed in a recent interview that he is married, so there’s also that piece of evidence. The rumors were true! So now that the cat’s out of the bag, can we please see some wedding pics?

Are you surprised that Ed Sheeran got married on the down low?

Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello: OMG, is it Happening?!?

Ever since their music video, “Senorita,” dropped, rumors have been swirling about Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello. Their chemistry in the video was totally insane, and fans (including me) immediately began shipping them.

Camila broke up with her boyfriend, Matthew Hussey, not long after the video dropped, further fueling the gossip that she and Shawn were an item.

Shawn and Camila haven’t confirmed that they’re dating, but they also haven’t denied it. And apparently, they were spotted looking very cozy and romantic at a Fourth of July party, which they later left holding hands.

Also, if you haven’t seen it, take a look at this behind the scenes video:

What do you think? Dating or nah?

The Ultimate Romance Playlist

Fun fact: I create soundtracks for all of my books. They’re usually pretty detailed, and often each scene will have a specific song assigned to it. I also include a few songs that capture the overall vibe of the book. Some playlists feature one genre heavily (for example, Primal Instinct had a lot of classic rock on its playlist), and others are more of a mix.

I’ve noticed that certain songs keep popping up on my playlists, so I thought I’d share some of those songs with you. Scroll down for your ultimate romance playlist.

Butterflies by Kacey Musgraves

Sweet and emotional.

Shallow by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper

This song makes me think of that moment at the end of the book when either the hero or the heroine makes a grand gesture and pledges their undying love to the other. Swoon.

Mine by Bazzi

This belongs on every sex scene playlist. Is it getting hot in here, or is it just me?

Sure Thing by Miguel

The vibe of this song is pure sex, but the lyrics are all love.

Kiss Me by Ed Sheeran

The perfect song for that first kiss scene with all the butterflies.

It’s You by Zayn

An angsty song perfect for that moment when the hero realizes the heroine might just be the one for him, even though he’s been fighting it.

You Make My Dreams by Hall and Oates

The ultimate cheesy happy in love bop. This works really well for the honeymoon phase when it seems like everything’s going to work out, and they can’t see the storm clouds up ahead.

Can’t Help Falling in Love by Elvis Presley

Straight up proposal vibes.

You + Me by You and Me

Oh, hi, are you my soulmate?

This is just a small sampling of what I have on my list—there are so many good ones it was hard to choose! What are your favorite romantic songs?

This Music Video Is Basically a Romance Novel

Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello just released the music video for their new song, “Senorita,” and um…are they dating? Because if they’re not, maybe they should be. Their chemistry is fire in the video (which is a little NSFW, just so you’re warned).

Check out the video, and then we’ll discuss.

This video is a straight up romance novel, right? The sexy dance scene, the super hot hotel sex, when he picks her up and pushes her against the wall—it’s all so freaking hot. And a lot of these moments could’ve come straight from any number of romance novels, including mine. Stripped has both a sexy dance scene and super hot hotel sex, Dirty Boxing has a very steamy sex scene up against a wall, and Take Down is filled with smoking hot hotel sex. This video is catnip for steamy romance lovers.

And the lyrics are also pretty sexy, and also could’ve been ripped right from the pages (or ereader screen) of your latest fun, sexy read. At one point, Camila sings “you say we’re just friends, but friends don’t know the way you taste.” OMG! Shawn sings “her body fit right in my hands.”

I need a cold shower. Holy hell.

I don’t know if they’re actually dating or not. It’s just a music video, meant to sell the song, so maybe they’re just acting. Maybe they’re not dating but they should be. I’m not sure. I think I’ll watch it a few dozen more times while I make up my mind.

What do you think? Acting? Real sexual chemistry? What’s your take?
