Ed Sheeran Writing for Taylor Swift

Ed SheerhanEd Sheeran has been writing songs for Taylor Swift.

The "A Team" hitmaker - who has previously penned tracks for One Direction - was asked by the country singer to work on her new album because she is a "massive fan" of his own music.

"Ed and Taylor have been in the studio in LA a lot over the past few weeks working on new material. She's into her British music and became a massive fan of Ed before asking to work with him recently. There is a mutual affection between the pair," a source said.

It has not yet been decided whether Ed's songs will be released as singles, but even just a credit on an album track will earn the 21-year-old British star around $310,000.

"It's still to be officially decided how the material will be released but just a single credit on her album will be worth big money. Taylor's country sound is massive around the world," the source added.


Slash Will Never Appear with Guns N’ Roses Again

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Gossip, Reunions, Rock,

SlashGuns N' Roses' classic line up will never reunite.

The definitive incarnation of the group - guitarists Slash and Izzy Stradlin, singer Axl Rose, bassist Duff McKagan and drummer Steven Adler - were given the opportunity to appear together as they were inducted to the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year, but after Axl declined to show up, Slash has drawn a line under the idea once and for all.

"That last Rock 'n' Roll Hall Of Fame thing was it. I've been entertaining the idea for other people for years, but it's never been my inclination to get back together. Given the opportunity for us all to show up in one place, that was the only reasonable platform for us to do it, and it didn't happen. I'm really sick to death of even entertaining the concept."

Axl - who still tours with Guns N' Roses and is the only original member of the band - and Slash have a long running feud, but despite that, the guitarist doesn't think any of the original members want to appear on stage together again: "I think you've got a situation where nobody involved wants to revisit. It's not just me - it's the whole band. And so I don't think there's a price tag that anybody's put in front of us that's going to make that work."


Michael Lohan: Lindsay Was on Drugs on SNL

Lindsay LohanLindsay Lohan's disastrous Saturday Night Live performance was due to prescription drugs, her father has claimed.

Michael Lohan claims the troubled actress is no longer taking any illegal substances but says medicine provided by her doctors prevented her from showing her true acting ability when she performed on the comedy sketch show in March. However, Michael insists he convinced her to stop taking prescription medication ahead of her recent Glee cameo and believes she is now once again showing her potential.

"I have to say this...on SNL, Lindsay was not using any illicit drugs or drinking but she still is on prescription drugs that they gave her. And the meds that they give her are meds that they say she needs, but she doesn't need them. But they kind of make her flat. She's not acting at a full potential. It's like the screen is down over her. And now when she did Glee I said, 'Linds, get off the damn medication and let people see who you really are.' And for a couple days before Glee, she went off this stuff. And there were tears in my eyes when I watched Glee. THAT was Lindsay. Yeah that was her acting. That is Lindsay Lohan at the Parent Trap, Freaky Friday and Mean Girls potential. That is what she was."

Taylor Kitsch For Catching Fire Role?

Taylor KitschTaylor Kitsch, Garrett Hedlund and Armie Hammer are reportedly battling it out for the role of Finnick Odair in Catching Fire.

Finnick is the victor of the 65th Hunger Games in the Suzanne Collins book trilogy on which the movies are based and his role is a vital one in the second novel. According to E! News, film bosses are undecided about whether to go with one of these three actors or launch an unknown with the pivotal role. A decision is expected to be made this week.

However, Lionsgate refused to comment, with a representative saying, "As with the first film, we won't be confirming, denying or commenting on any casting rumors for this title. We will announce news wide when there is official casting news to announce."

Filming is scheduled to begin later this year with Francis Lawrence taking over the directing reigns from Gary Ross, who chose not to return to the franchise.

Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth all starred in The Hunger Games, which was released earlier this year and are on board to reprise their roles of Katniss Everdeen, Peeta Mellark and Gale Hawthorne respectively.

Mumford and Sons will release their new album on September 24. The British folk band revealed in an interview with Dutch pop/rock radio station 3FM that their hotly anticipated follow up to Sign No More is almost complete. The group have once again collaborated with producer Markus Dravs on the record and frontman Marcus Mumford previously revealed they were in no rush to finish it because they wanted to make sure it wasn't "s**t."

"I think we just want the songs to be good, and to sound right, and to feel like we've expressed everything as straightforwardly and honestly as we can. We're done recording it. But if we listen back while we're mixing and discover it's s**t, we'll just start again," he said.

Kim KardashianKim Kardashian is finding her divorce "draining."

The reality TV star split from basketball player Kris Humphries just 72 days after their fairytale wedding in October last year and is finding officially ending their union "so difficult."

Speaking to her sister, Khloe, on Keeping Up with the Kardashians' last night, she said, "My divorce has been really draining, really stressful. I just want to leave this chapter of my life behind me. I think someone just wants to make it so difficult. When one person just wants a divorce and the other one is just p***ed, they try to make it so difficult."

One of the sticking points in the couple's divorce is that Kris reportedly wants Kim to explain what happened to all their wedding gifts. Sources close to her accuse him of dragging proceedings out for longer than necessary.
