Ed Sheeran: I Don't Think Justin Bieber Collaboration Would Work
Fans of both Justin Bieber AND Ed Sheeran, forget it! It's never gonna happen. A collaboration between both of your favourite stars is officially off the cards, according to Sheeran himself. The Suffolk born singer-songwriter - who will duet with Elton John at the Grammys on Sunday - has previously worked with One Direction and Taylor Swift, though claims a collaborative effort with Bieber just wouldn't work.
"I don't think a collaboration would work with Justin. I think collaborations should be done with people that can actually click. Two male singers makes it very difficult for it to work," he told The Sun. Well, that's that then. Sheeran addressed rumors that he and Justin were working together by explaining he was actually in the studio with singer Tori Kelly, who has the same manager as Justin Bieber, Scooter Braun. He said: "I met Bieber's manager in New York and he said he's got this artist I want you to write with. Next time I was in LA, I was doing Jimmy Kimmel and he brought this girl to Kimmel and I met her straight afterwards. I then went to the studio and did a song."
Scooter has his fingers in plenty of pies and also represents South Korean sensation Psy. Can you imagine a collaboration between Sheeran and the Gangnam Style star? Think of the royalties Ed, think of the royalties.
