Why did the chicken cross the road? Probably because it heard an Ed Sheeran song. The U.K.’s Mirror reports that the hens at Yorkshire Farmhouse Eggs lay the most eggs when Ed’s tunes are playing. Farmers say they tried playing songs from various artists -- everything from classical to Justin Bieber -- and eventually discovered the birds liked Ed the best. Adrian Potter, who runs the family farm, says Ed’s music keeps the hens “calm and relaxed” as they lay their eggs.   “The music they respond to most positively is Ed Sheeran and they lay more and better quality…

Hailee Steinfeld Says Even When She’s Acting “the Music Never Stops”

Hailee Steinfeld is hard at work balancing a burgeoning music career with her already established acting career. But even while she’s acting, Hailee tells Interview magazine, “the music never stops.” “It's one thing with a movie to go away for a couple months,” she says. “You're stationed in one location if not two, you're in that world, and once you wrap up you're done with your part. But with the music, I'm in constant communication with my favorite writers and producers asking them what they have going on and telling them what's going on with me.” She adds she’s constantly…

Champ Jordan Smith Dismisses Criticism of "The Voice": "It's a Really Special Thing"

One criticism of The Voice has always been that the show hasn't managed to produce a top-selling star as American Idol has done.  That seems to have changed with the release of reigning champ Jordan Smith's debut album Something Beautiful: It debuted in the top 10 and had the biggest first sales week of any album from any new artist so far this year.  But even if that hadn't happened, Jordan says creating stars isn't what The Voice is about. "Sure, they may not have produced crazy superstars that are, like, global household names...but The Voice is producing artists that…
