Ed Sheeran, MAX, Olivia Holt & More - New Music Friday 6/25

Happy New Music Friday!!

We are kicking things off this week with Ed Sheeran‘s brand new song “Bad Habits.”

“Feels great to be back with my new single. I wanted the video for Bad Habits to play on the nature of habits in a fantastical way so I decided on vampires. It was mega fun getting into character except for the heights (that wasn’t so fun). Enjoy x,” he said about the song.

Ed also dropped the music video, with his BFF Taylor Swift saying, “It’s Ed and it’s glitter so it’s a yes for me.”

Ryan Murphy Wants To Re-Do 'Glee' Pilot With Lea Michele & These Celeb BFFs

Ryan Murphy has an idea to do-over the Glee pilot!

The co-creator of the series recently shared on Instagram that he wants to re-make the series with Lea Michele, Ben Platt and Beanie Feldstein.

“Imagine it’s 2009, and I lived in a world where I knew Lea Michele, Ben Platt and Beanie Feldstein (Ben and Beanie, I believe, were in high school then…and I think they dressed up as Glee characters once for Halloween?)” Ryan wrote. “If I had access to that talent, here’s the new pilot: Lea and Ben are frenemies who fight for the heart and soul of Glee Club. Ben is also on the football team, and pretty much sleeps with the entire school and is the heartthrob of McKinley.”

“Beanie is their mutual best friend, and torn. Suddenly, Beanie joins forces with Sue Sylvester, joins Glee Club and becomes the main soloist and the ruthless star of the club. Lea and Ben have to then join forces to dethrone her. I WANT TO SHOOT THIS DO OVER PILOT. Maybe I will?” he added.

UMM… YES, PLEASE! Can we make this happen?!

And THAT’s what you missed on Instagram!
