In a concentrated attempt to amp up the excitement to levels of pantswetting of 11-17 year old girls everywhere, everyone’s been very coy about who will perform at the Olympics closing ceremonies in two weeks. Most of the squealing and tweeting has centered around One Direction, the modern tween’s N*SYNC.
Ed, who has written several songs for One Direction and has a solid solo career of his own, told MTV: "If I was to play the closing ceremony, I might be playing with quite a big rock band and I might be playing one of their most famous hits. Might be. And if I was doing that, it would feel quite fun, I think. And it would be quite a moment for me. But that's if I was doing it."
Haha Ed! We get it! You’re obviously referring to 1D, thus confirming all of our suspicions and letting us rest until August 12th.
But no, no, life is never so simple. In an interview with Brisbane’s Nova 106.9 Radio, Ed Sheeran has just confirmed that he wasn’t referring to One Direction, but a little band called Pink Floyd that put out some albums you may have heard of.
To this news I say THANK YOU, ENGLAND because the day One Direction supersedes Pink Floyd in importance is the day I stop listening to music. Ed and Pink Floyd will be performing “Wish You Were Here,” and will be joining other confirmed artists The Who and Take That.
