Hours after releasing a romantic duet with Beyonce, Ed Sheeran sits down with Ellen DeGeneres to talk about the new collaboration and to gush about his high school sweetheart, Cherry Seaborn.
Calling “Perfect” one of his favourites, the singer-songwriter revealed that “it was the fastest song that I’d written…and I’m still not sick of it.”
Sheeran reached out to Beyonce for a remix of the romantic and tender love song, and blew fans away with the surprise guest appearance after releasing it late Thursday night.
“I thought of a way of relaunching it…and I was, like, I love Beyonce, I might as well ask. And she said yes.”
While discussing the single’s inspiration, Sheeran got candid about his long-term relationship with his girlfriend, Cherry. “We went to high school together, she’s really cool. We live together, we have cats, they’re really cool. We just got a Christmas tree and put that up,” he told the audience.
“We’ve got two cats but they’re both really, really strange creatures…They’ll sit up like humans,” Sheeran explained of the Instagram fame-worthy cats Calippo and Dorito.
