The ever so lovely Ed Sheeran stopped by this morning to talk about his new music and performing at this year's iHeartRadio Music Awards.
Ed, who turns 26 this Friday, plans to spend his birthday skiing in Austria. Coming up in the year, he plans on extensively touring the US. Ed Sheeran talked about writing "Shape of You" for Rihanna an explained that he went in writing the song for her but left writing it for himself.
Ed says he wouldn't mind writing another song for RiRi and that he hopes she remixes "Shape of You." Then Kevin revealed that Jill described Ed's Grammys performance as "sexy." But she also admits to being nervous during his entire performance. "They always put Jay-Z front and center of me," said Ed on being nervous as well. He said that these huge shows nervous but that makes him bring his all to the performance.
Kevin brought up the photo that sparked wedding rumors of Ed because he had a ring on THAT finger. Ed replied that he always wears that ring and must have been playing around with it and it ended up on his ring finger. Ugh, rumors.
Ed revealed that he's going to perform three songs including one that he's never performed live at our iHeartRadio Music Awards.
We were also treated to an acoustic version of his latest #1 single "Shape of You."

MEET VAL'S TEAM!
Jillian Escoto is the pop culture princess of Valentine in the Morning. Jill is born and raised in Southern California and spends most of her time keeping up with reality TV and celebrities - so you don't have to. After a few years of dating disasters, Jill is engaged to her longtime boyfriend, Ryan (who just so happens to be Kevin's brother). Jill has worked with Valentine for over 11 years.
Kevin, a Chicago native, sat in on the show one day & just never left. While he has hosted television shows on MTV, NBC & Lifetime... he's probably best known for creating the game "Pig in the Hole." He starts every day with a tall glass of Bloody Mary mix & he wears 2 pairs of socks at all times.
