Just last month, one of favorite red-headed Brits returned to Instagram in a major way. Ed Sheeran marked his return with an announcement promising new music, and he certainly delivered. Later that same week, he released two new singles, "Shape of You" and "Castle on a Hill." Following the release, he announced even bigger news on his Insta-feed: Come March 3, we'll be getting an entire album, titled Divide from Sheeran, complete with 12 new songs.

Of all the excited tweens, teens, and even adults (like this author) who collectively freaked out over the news, no one was more excited than his BFF, Taylor Swift. "OH MY GOD OKAY ITS HAPPENING EVERYBODY STAY CALM," she captioned an Instagram of a screengrab of "Shape of You" playing on her iTunes.

The duo, who both share a love for cats, became friends after Swift invited him to open for her during her "Red" tour, and the rest is history.
