If you ever spent your teenage years fruitlessly sending emails to firstname.lastname@example.org from the hopes of one day with one a reply, you’ll be saddened by the news which Beyoncé actually changes her email address each week, presumably to ward off some crazy lovers.
Based on a statement of Ed Sheeran, who’s only listened with the superstar on a remix of the solitary Perfect, he had been given her contact information but had been cautioned that they change those contact information frequently.
“I have an email address that I email [to get in touch with Beyoncé] that actually changes every week,” Sheeran told Entertainment Tonight. “She’s very good at…”
“Hiding?” interviewer Keltie Knight suggested, to which Sheeran noded and added, that “It’s kind of what I inspire to be, I think.”
Ed Sheeran also disclosed that the new collaboration was in the works as the center of 2017.
“Clearly she’d twins [in June], and we all ended [the song] in September, so I have been holding onto it since then.
He continued: “The original version of Perfect was just an acoustic guitar and she rung me up and was like, ‘I don’t know how you feel about this but I’ve taken all the instruments off it and it’s just gonna be acoustic guitar,’ and I was like, ‘Ah that’s great, because it used to be that!’
“Then when we got in together, it wasn’t so many notes, it was very much like a back and forth thing,” Ed continued. “Like, ‘What’d you think of this?’ Or ‘What do you think of this?’ and [we were] probably in the studio for four hours.”
Sheeran’s curiosity about Beyoncé’s solitude will be unsurprising to long-time lovers — the celebrity having stopped Twitter after criticism of his Glastonbury functionality in July, and then stopping the website again after that month following his Game of Thrones cameo was widely contested.
He told The Sun: “I’ve actually come off Twitter completely. I can’t read it. I go on it and there’s nothing but people saying mean things. The head-f— for me has been trying to work out why people dislike me so much.”
