Ed Sheeran Had 2017’s Top Selling Album
There’s no mistaking the fact that Ed Sheeran had a very good 2017. According to Nielsen, the singer’s album “Divide,” was hands down the most popular album of the year, moving 2.764 million equivalent album units, 1.1 million in traditional album sales.
Coming in second was Kendrick Lamar’s “DAMN,” with 2.747 million, followed by Taylor Swift’s “reputation,” with 2.336 mil, which is certainly impressive considering she only released her album in November.
Sam Smith Gets Honest About His Weight Loss & Love Life
Sam Smith is on the cover of “V Magazine,” where he opens up about his struggles with his weight, his life as a gay man and more.
The interview was conducted by his good friend Sarah Jessica Parker, who asked him about whether he has started feeling comfortable in front of a camera, and he admits losing all that weight over the past few years has helped him in that area.
"I was shooting my first music videos, I just wasn’t happy with the way I looked, so I was trying to control the way the camera moved,” he says. “I got a bit obsessive. I was constantly looking in the mirror, pinching my waist, weighing myself every day.” He adds, “Now, I’ve gotten to a place where I really love my stretch marks and I just enjoy my body."
As for his love life, he tells the mag, “In the past few years, I became a gay man properly,” adding, “When I wrote that first album, I was in love with a straight man; he didn’t love me back, and I was very comfortable in my longing. With this record, I became a gay man.” He notes, "On a personal level, I’m in a relationship right now and for the first time, I think I deserve to be happy. I’m actually asking myself if I’m going to be writing some happy love songs soon.”
