When we first heard that Ed Sheeran was engaged we were super happy. Ed and his fiance Cherry Seaborn make one incredible couple and we couldn't love them any more tbh. But one thing that caught our attention when the couple announced their engagement was that decision Ed made to wear an engagement ring as well as Cherry. Traditionally, it's only the bride-to-be who wears an engagement ring, but not when it comes to Mr Sheeran. Ed has been spotted at plenty of high profile events wearing his engagament ring, including the BRIT Awards and the Berlin Film Festival, but he'd never revealed why he'd chosen to wear one, until now... Having previously claimed he doesn't see why men shouldn't wear engagament rings, Ed told Australian radio show Kyle and Jackie O, "It also means that nobody will know when we have got married." After Kyle exclaimed, "Ahh, I see what you’re trying to do! Throw everyone off the scent! I get it!", Ed simply responded, "Yeah" and now our minds are completely blown. So basically Ed could literally get secretly married at any time and we'd have absolutely no idea because he's already wearing a ring! Genius!!!!
The Shape of Water, about a woman who falls in love with a sea creature, has taken the top honours at the Oscars. Frances McDormand won best actress for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, and persuaded every female nominee to stand with her in a night full of statements about inclusion. Britain's Gary Oldman was named best actor for playing Winston Churchill in World War Two epic Darkest Hour. The Shape of Water won the most Oscars with four, including best film. In her acceptance speech, McDormand put her Oscar on the floor in front of her and addressed executives as the female nominees got to their feet. It was one of the most powerful and symbolic moments of the night. "Look around, ladies and gentlemen, because we all have stories to tell and projects we need financed," she said. "Don't talk to us about it at the parties tonight - invite us into your office in a couple of days, or you can come to ours, whatever suits you best - and we'll tell you all about them." Her request came amid a push for greater equality in film - especially in the wake of the Hollywood sexual harassment scandal.

The King of Wakanda reigned supreme this holiday weekend as Disney's "Black Panther" proved to be a pop cultural phenomenon, shattering box office records with an estimated $235 million in U.S. and Canadian ticket sales for the four-day holiday weekend. The Marvel Entertainment release, the first global superhero blockbuster with an African American director and a mostly black cast, exceeded expectations and set records for a February opening and for a Presidents Day weekend debut. The previous record holder was "Deadpool," which made $152 million domestically over the four-day holiday in 2016. "Black Panther" is the fifth highest domestic opening weekend of all time, behind only "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" (2015), "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" (2017), "Jurassic World" (2012) and "Marvel's The Avengers" (2012).

Justin Timberlake notches his fourth No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart, as Man of the Woods debuts atop the tally. The set, which was released on Feb. 2 through RCA Records, earned 293,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Feb. 8, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 242,000 were in traditional album sales. Timberlake scores the largest week for an album -- both in terms of units and pure album sales -- since Taylor Swift’s Reputation flew in at No. 1 on the Dec. 2, 2017-dated chart with 1.24 million units and 1.22 million in album sales. Timberlake claims the biggest week for an album by a man since Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN. debuted at No. 1 on the May 6, 2017 list with 603,000 units and 353,000 in traditional album sales.
