Ed Sheeran Wants Us To Just Start Ignoring Justin Bieber Already

Ed Sheeran 'that'd be cool' GIFHey. Everybody. Ed Sheeran wants us to start ignoring Justin Bieber so he’ll go away. I know you guys have given me that advice like ten thousand times before, but it sounds way smarter coming out of a celebrity’s mouth for some reason. No offense.

This all came up during an interview with Power 96.1 Morning Show in Atlanta, when Ed was asked about Justin’s past (and present, ahem) troubles:

“I don’t think there is any going back from some stuff now. I think he has stable relationships in his life. I don’t think that’s the problem.”

Let me just say first of all, I love that Ed has no issues saying there is a problem. So many celebrities shy away from that and just say he’s just being a regular teenager.

“I think the problem is people expect too much from him, and people want too much and people are very grabby. People follow him around and he doesn’t really have any privacy and never really has had any privacy.”

OH SO THIS IS MY FAULT??

I feel like it’s not so much what he needs to do. It’s what we need to do. We need to stop taking such an interest in him, and let him make his music because I genuinely like his music..”

Well yeah, that’s a beautiful idea, but one that I’m not gonna be able to adopt myself, unfortunately, as Justin is quite literally my bread and butter. (Every time I write a story about him, Jenni lets me have one slice of bread with butter on it.)

But as long as were talking about this, have we ever gotten official confirmation on whether Ed Sheeran can do actual magic or not? I can’t remember where we landed on that — whether he was a real live leprechaun or just knew spells that would make Taylor Swift‘s cat vaguely tolerate him.

Either way, now would be a great time to find out. If he has the power to make Justin Bieber disappear simply by averting his eyes away from him, that’s a talent I’ma need to see in action post-haste.

    Ed Sheeran, quick, STOP TALKING! While I still like you.

    • M_G

      Side note: you pay your writers by the buttered bread slice? Interesting…..

    • Olivia Wilson

      It’s a tough industry.

    • Amy Wynne

      Thankfully Jenni, Sheeran isn’t concerned with whether you like him or not.

      He’s speaking his mind. And since he knows the Biebs and has done for a while, obviously knows a good deal more about what JB goes through than you.

      But, please, carry on living your perfect life and judging others.

    • M_G

      You realize this comment translates to, “HOW DARE YOU JUDGE ED SHEERAN! You shouldn’t judge people at all! And I am totally judging you for that decision.”, right? People who live in judgmental glass houses should not throw judgmental bricks, Amy.

    Is it at least organic bread? Is it breadless bread (ie, gluten free?)

    I bake my own bread, and I add extra gluten. I’ll mail you some. You can hand it out in lieu of salaries.

    Notice how well I’m ignoring Bieber?

    • M_G

      Oh man….EXTRA gluten bread?! Is that a thing? If not, can it be?? I really want to try some….

    • fantasymother

      Good Italian bread needs hard flour, gluten-rich wheat, in order to get that elastic texture. It’s hard to get really hard bread flour these days, but you can buy pure gluten and add it to the flour.

      It’s really good. Let me know if you want the recipe :-) It’s very politically incorrect. LOL

    • Nbl

      I would LOVE that recipe! I’ll trade you my traditional tortilla soup recipe for it.

    • fantasymother

      Here ya go! I’m assuming you know basic bread making. If you don’t let me know and I’ll add more to this.

      Use bread flour, do NOT use better for bread flour. King Arthur’s is pretty good. The gluten I use is Bob’s Red Mill. I actually find it in Walmart by the regular flour. It might be tough to find in whole foods stores, although Bob’s Red Mill is popular organic stuff, because gluten is so politically incorrect. If you can find Montana Hard Flour just go with 3 1/2 cups of flour and you don’t need to add gluten.

      Ingredients:

      3 1/4 cups flour
      1/4 cup gluten
      1 3/4 cups warm water
      2 teaspoons sugar
      1 teaspoon salt (don’t use iodized salt, it can be bitter)
      2 teaspoons active dry yeast

      You can make a glaze out of an egg white with a bit of water added. You can also add sesame seeds right after you brush on the glaze. I put the glaze on halfway through baking – then you don’t need to worry if it’s a little cold, making the bread collapse.

      This makes 2 loafs of bread. I do three risings and then bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes depending on how hot your oven is. You can do two risings if you prefer, but I like the texture. Don’t let it burn. DON’T over-knead this dough. You want a good, active dough but not something that becomes a singularity in space.

      And I’d LOVE that tortilla soup recipe! Thank you!

      See Alexis? Look at what you’ve started! If you’re being paid in bread, at least make it good bread :-)

    • M_G

      That. Sounds, Amazing!!!

  • avalon

    Taylor Swift just tweeted …Ed you were just supposed to say I wish he would go away ? Did they brain wash you at Scooter Brauns wedding? I saw the photos. I’m sending Alexis that jar of jam I was saving for you so she can put it on her bread.

    “I think the problem is people expect too much from him”
    I expect many of the people in my life not to pee on other people’s property and I have never once been told that is me expecting too much from them :-

    Also, for the record, Crushable readers: Yes, Jenni does exclusively feed her writers with bread and butter. If she is in a bad mood, however, she stomps on it and THEN makes them eat it after. She films this process and turns it into GIF posts for BuzzFeed.

  • bea

    Nothing is gonna make me warm up to that thing we’re not talking about anymore but I gotta love Sheeran.

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      Well played!

  • Napoleon

    Another one bites the dust. Why is it that Justin Bieber is gifted excuse after excuse for being a racist jerk? Why is it always his fame or his age? When will people hold him accountable for his ridiculous behavior? It must be white male privilege.

  • Amy Wynne

    Way to misread what Sheeran said.

    His gist is that Bieber is being given the lowest-common denominator attention that gets its “glee on” over his mistakes, and ignores the music he makes.

    He also makes a valid point about the horrific lack of privacy Bieber has – which clearly exacerbates normal, teen missteps – and wouldn’t stop even if he left the game.

    But, Alexis, you are known for manipulating the narrative to suit your hate so keep at it.

    It makes you look like a clickbait-obsessed merchant and serves a purpose you are unaware of.

    You’re welcome.

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      Can’t wait to tell my parents I’m a merchant, now! They’ll be so proud! When do I get my sailing ship and first batch of exports???
