Ed Sheeran + Game Of Thrones
If you're a fan of GoT, you're probably still not over Sunday night's episode, especially when it comes to Ed Sheeran's totally random cameo. The singer, who recently left Twitter, received a ton of backlash for appearing on the show, but, as he explained on Instagram Wednesday, that's not why he deleted his account. His leaving Twitter "had nothing to do with what people said about my game of thrones cameo... why the hell would I worry what people thought about that. It's clearly f*ckin' awesome," Sheeran wrote. Well-said.
