Ed Sheeran may be a Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter, but if that ever falls through, he might have a career in matchmaking!
In an interview with omg! U.K., Sheeran, 22, opens up about how he set pal Courteney Cox, 49, up with his roommate, Snow Patrol's Johnny McDaid, 37.
"I wasn't allowed to talk about this, actually, but it's just gone public so ... My housemate [Johnny], who I have lived with for a year, I introduced him to Courteney and they started dating - now they're crazy about each other," Ed explains.
Courteney and Johnny first sparked dating rumors when they were photographed leaving Jennifer Aniston's annual holiday party together.

2013 has certainly been a wild year for Justin Bieber … but was all the drama enough to push the superstar into early retirement? During an interview with L.A.'s Power 106 on Tuesday, Justin exclaimed his upcoming album, "Journals," would be his last. "I'm actually, uh, I'm retiring man, I'm retiring, yeah," said the 19-year-old. "I think I'm probably going to quit music." Sources close to Bieber insisted yesterday the singer was "joking." However, Justin's manager, Scooter Braun, admitted on Wednesday he would like the singer to take time away from the spotlight once his film "Believe" hits theaters on Christmas. "I’m telling him after this movie, I want him to take next year off and just take a break," Braun noted during an interview on KIIS FM's "On Air With Ryan Seacrest." "He can still live in the studio and work on the next album, which is what he wants to do, but I just want him to take some time to himself, so he can have that time alone, cause he’s been working since he was 12 years old." Braun also noted that the film, "Believe," will address the controversy that has followed Justin this year. "Over the last nine months, Justin got into trouble sometimes — a few times — and we started seeing this thing going on, of just the press over and over again got into a place where they could get away with anything," Scooter explained. "And there’s a point where you just can’t respond to every single rumor, so we just had to let it go. I could sit there and address every single one, but it was ridiculous so we decided with this movie we are going to address it all at once. "Our director Jon Chu sat down with Justin for a three-hour interview and asked him really hard questions … and we decided instead of running away from the issue, we are just going to go after it head-on," continued Braun. The world premiere of "Believe" is tonight in Los Angeles, so it's likely Justin will clarify that "retire" comment for all those Beliebers out there.

Can't someone upload a photo on Instagram without a side of controversy anymore? On Monday, Kim Kardashian, 33, shared a close-up picture of her 6-month-old daughter, North West. The photo, which was captioned "SMILE," showed Nori's adorable brown eyes, rosy cheeks … and waxed eyebrows?! Many of Kardashian's haters thought the baby's brows were too perfectly groomed to be natural.
Does Kim kardashian wax her baby's eyebrows orrrr Referring to her insta pic
Is it me or did Kim Kardashian wax NW's unibrow
I'm not even kidding I think Kim Kardashian waxed her daughter's eyebrows
Kim K definitely waxed her baby's unibrow
(You get the idea.) A lot of blogs took it from there, insinuating that must indeed be the case. This, of course, prompted a response from Kim herself on Tuesday.
Do people really think I would wax my daughters eyebrows so young? Come on, I'd wait until she's at least 2 1/2!
I'm kidding!!! Its pretty sick for people to insinuate that I would wax my daughters eyebrows. They are thick, natural and amazing!

Could Colin Farrell have been Elizabeth Taylor's eighth husband? In another life, quite possibly! The "Saving Mr. Banks" star was one of the few non-family members invited to Taylor's funeral in 2011, which had many wondering what the connection was between the two. The two were so close in fact, that Colin recited a poem at the one-hour service. Farrell, 37, just opened up about their relationship on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show." "My youngest son was being born. We were in Cedars [Sinai hospital] and I bumped into … Elizabeth’s manager and her close friend Tim Mendelsohn and they said, 'What are you doing here?'" Colin recalled.

Paul Walker will soon be laid to rest. The actor's remains have been released to Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills, omg! can confirm, at the request of his family. Private funeral services for the actor and Roger Rodas — whose remains were released to Forest Lawn Glendale — are reportedly set for this weekend, and Paul's "Fast & Furious" co-stars are expected to be in attendance. E! News is reporting that Tyrese Gibson has been helping the Walker family make arrangements. It's likely Vin Diesel is offering a helping hand as well. Paul's co-star and "other half" headed straight to Walker's mother's house upon hearing the news of Paul's death. On Sunday, thousands of fans flocked to a car rally and public memorial service in Valencia, California, to honor the fallen "Fast & Furious" star. Hundreds of flowers, candles, and posters have been laid nearby the crash site where Walker — who passed away at age 40 — and his longtime friend and business partner, Rodas, died in a fiery accident on Nov. 30. Last week, the Los Angeles County Coroner's Department ruled both deaths accidental. According to the report, Rodas succumbed to "multiple traumatic injuries" while Walker died of "combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries." Both men died "within seconds" of the incident, described as "auto versus fixed object." In lieu of flowers or gifts, Paul Walker's family has encouraged fans to donate to his charity, Reach Out Worldwide. Click here to learn more.

Kim Kardashian is firing back at critics — this time, in relation to her charity choices. Last month, the reality star caused a stir when she launched an eBay sale of some of her clothes and accessories to raise funds for the victims of the typhoon in the Philippines. Kardashian, 33, gave 10% of the proceeds to charity, a number many felt was too low. (In comparison, the Beckham's emptied their closets for no profit.) "I feel compelled to speak about something that is in my head and my heart," Kim posted on her blog on Tuesday. "Over the years, I’ve had to grow a thick skin. Being in the public eye, there are times I feel like I get criticized for any and everything I do. I’m used to it now. I just choose not to feed into negativity or become consumed by it. "The problem comes in when I get attacked for giving and trying to help people," Kanye West's fiancée wrote. "My dad always taught me the importance of giving back. I don’t publicize everything I do to help charities and people all over the world. I do it because I want to. I do it because my dad taught me to. I do it because it’s the right thing to do. So for people to attack me for giving 10% of my eBay auction sales to the people of the Philippines, that hurts." This isn't the first time Kim has found herself in a precarious situation when giving back. After her short-lived marriage to Kris Humphries, Kardashian sent out cards announcing she would be donating their wedding gifts to charity. Although that didn't happen, Kim did donate a large sum of money to the Dream Foundation, supposedly valued at twice the amount of gifts received. Still, her critics claimed that wasn't enough. "I do eBay auctions monthly and change the charity or church from time to time," Kim continued. "I give 10% of all my earnings to charities, not just these eBay auctions. This month it’s for the people of the Philippines, last month was Life Change Community Church."

On Sunday, celebrities united for TrevorLIVE, which took place at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles.
