Prepare to see a different side of Ed Sheeran. The singer tells Entertainment Weekly that his character in the new FX show The Bastard Executioner is a complete change of pace for him. “I find that I have reputation of being a smiley approachable guy, so I wanted the opposite,” he says. “I said to [show creator] Kurt [Sutter], make sure that I’m not typecast at all.

Carly Rae Jepsen “Doesn’t Feel the Need to Compare” Her Album to Taylor’s "1989"

Carly Rae Jepsen’s ‘80s-inspired new album, Emotion, has drawn comparisons to another album influenced by the decade: Taylor Swift’s 1989. But in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Carly says she’s not trying to compete. “I don’t really feel the need to compare,” she says. “I think that Taylor's fantastic and I think she made a really fantastic record, but they're different types of music and I think there's room for it all.” And Taylor’s bestie Lorde seems to agree. She recently tweeted her love for Carly’s new single, “Run Away with Me.” Carly co-wrote the song, which is about “trying…

Nick Jonas Named Music Curator for 2016 Miss America Competition

Nick Jonas is adding another gig to his already-packed schedule. The singer will serve as the official music curator for the 2016 Miss America Competition. That means Nick will personally select the music that will accompany the swimsuit and evening gown portions of the ceremony. He will also give commentary throughout the evening on his music selections, including why he chose each song. We'd say Nick probably knows a thing or two about pageants, since his ex-girlfriend, Olivia Culpo, is a former Miss USA and former Miss Universe.  In fact, Nick's hit "Jealous" was inspired by one night when he…
