ED SHEERAN REPORTEDLY ADDING BARBECUES, A PIZZA OVEN AND A BAR AREA TO HIS ENGLISH ESTATE: Ed Sheeran's massive English estate in his hometown of Framlingham, Suffolk is about to get even more amenities. According to The Daily Mail, the singer has gotten permission to build two barbecues, a pizza oven and a bar area on his property, next to his private pub, The Lancaster Lock. The $4.5 million estate, dubbed Sheeranville, already reportedly includes several houses, a recording studio, a gym, an indoor swimming pool, and a four-room treehouse.

BASEBALL CARD CONFUSES PITCHER SHANE BIEBER FOR JUSTIN BIEBER: Shane Bieber is an All Star and starting pitcher for the Cleveland Indians, and Justin Bieber (no relation) is a Canadian pop star. But Topps, the baseball card company, seems to have mixed up the two men. Shane's name is correct at the top of the card, but in his bio, the company refers to him as Justin. Shane called out Topps on Twitter, posting a photo of the card and highlighting the goof. Shane's name is printed correctly at the top of the card, but the blurb underneath reads, "In each of his first three big-league appearances, Justin was particularly comfortable on the road." Topps delivered the perfect response to Shane, quoting a Justin Bieber lyric: "Is it too late to say sorry?" Justin also got in on the fun, tweeting at Shane, "I feel like we have a special connection."
KATY PERRY, LUKE BRYAN & LIONEL RICHIE RETURNING FOR ‘AMERICAN IDOL' SEASON 3: American Idol's three judges – Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie – will all be returning for the 2020 season of the hit reality show. "American Idol is the original music competition series," ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke said in a statement. "It was the first of its kind to take everyday singers and catapult them into superstardom, launching the careers of so many amazing artists. We couldn't be more excited for Katy, Luke, Lionel and in-house mentor Bobby Bones to continue in their roles as American Idol searches for the next great music star, with more live episodes and exciting, new creative elements coming this season." There were some rumors that perhaps the judges would not return due in part to their large salaries. It's unclear so far if Ryan Seacrest will be back as host – but he has hosted every season of Idol.
