Dive In


Mr Sheeran is undoubtedly very talented, he is a genius. But he is also a magpie. He borrows ideas and throws them into his songs, sometimes he will acknowledge it but sometimes he won’t.

That’s the plaintiffs’ lawyer accusing Ed Sheeran of lifting "particular lines and phrases" of his most famous song—‘The Shape of You’—from a single called ‘Oh Why’. Sheeran’s lawyers insist that the singer and his co-writers have no recollection of having heard the song.


Last chance to talk to Kalki Koechlin: The wonderfully talented actor is doing a splainer AMA along with Pakistani filmmaker Sabiha Sumar—also highly regarded for her previous film ‘Dinner with the President’. The event is tonight, March 7 at 7:30 pm. So sign up here to receive your zoom invite.
