He’s given him Twitter advice, told Prince Harry to go out on the town with him, and regularly texts him using three different phones.

But now Ed Sheeran has taken his bromance with Shane Warne a step further – by getting his own Warnie-shaped bong.

Online retailer of Cannabis-related products Gatorbeug on Monday posted a photo of the flame-haired crooner unwrapping the product.

Yeah so Ed Sheeran somehow got a Shane Warne bong, the company wrote in the caption on its official Instagram page.

The 25-year-old is seen with a slightly sheepish expression on his face holding the bong, having just opened a box that it had been sent to him in.

It was not clear whether Sheeran had ordered it himself or if someone who knew of the unbreakable bond between the two larger than life entertainers had sent it.

The hand-made smoking device – which can be used as a bong or alternatively would look great on a bookshelf – was molded in the image of the legendary spin bowler and boasts details dark shades and 24 carat gold Nike earrings.

Warnie and Sheeran have been best buddies since they went out in Melbourne with mutual friends after a Kylie Minogue concert.

I really like him, he’s a hero, Sheeran said when recounting the night they met in a radio interview. I have three phones and he texts all three of them.

The bromance continued last March when the singer went to the Cricket World Cup final where Warne was commentating and was presented with a signed bat and customised Australian team shirt bearing Sheeran’s name.

Warne donned a sports cap as he presented the wood, which advised Ed to keep spinning and was signed Your friend, Shane Warne.

A few weeks later Sheeran returned the favour by in an interview with Sunrise encouraging Prince Harry to have a night out with the King of Spin while he was touring Australia.

I reckon Prince Harry should go out with Shane Warne, he’ll enjoy that, he said.

But the redhead is not adverse to jokes at his mate’s expense, giving him some mock advise on his infamous Tinder dating habits.

All those places have Tinder, be careful son, he said in reference to Warne’s heavy U.S. tour schedule last year.

Sheeran has been laying low the past five months after declaring a career and social media time out to travel the world and see friends.

He is currently in Australia with girlfriend Cherry Seaborn and was on Sunday dining with her and some friends at Icebergs Dining Room in Bondi.

Ed Sheeran made the most of his fleeting trip to New Zealand, last week enjoying an afternoon at Queenstown’s popular Shotover Canyon Swing – apparently in the company of Peter Jackson’s daughter.

The adventure company shared a series of photos of Sheeran enjoying a swing with a young mystery brunette, who appears to be 20-year-old actor Katie Jackson, daughter of Sir Peter and his partner Fran Walsh.

“So… Ed Sheeran came to play in our playground last week!! Challenging himself to both the Canyon Fox and Canyon Swing. Come back anytime Ed!!!” Shotover Canyon shared on their Facebook Page on Tuesday afternoon [today}.

Sheeran‘s smash hit I See Fire featured in Jackson’s 2013 film The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.

At the time, Jackson reportedly credited his daughter Katie for introducing him to Sheeran after attending one of his shows together, in March of 2013.

“[Katie] said that I just had to listen to him,” Jackson said during a fan event at the time. “That he could be the perfect fit for the end of the film… and she was right.”

Following the film’s release, Jackson reportedly gifted Sheeran with an original prop from the film – a sword.

“[Sir Peter Jackson] took us out for dinner, gave me a sword, which was cool,” said Sheeran at the time.

“It’s a real sword, it was one of the props [from The Hobbit]… I gave him a guitar. Well, I gave his daughter [Katie] a guitar.”

Katie Jackson, an actress, is believed to be based in Wellington.

Sheeran‘s New Zealand record label has been approached for comment, while a representative for Sir Peter Jackson said he had no comment to make.

Sheeran reportedly spent the entire week in Queenstown, last Wednesday opting to permanently brand himself with a souvenir.

Queenstown has left a life-time mark on Ed Sheeran after he got a tattoo and a green stone carving from a local artist while taking a break in the resort.

White Tiger Tattoo artist Scott Mcfarlane​, said he respected celebrity’s privacy and would not reveal Sheeran’s newest tattoo design, but said it took three hours.

Mcfarlane, who tattooed Sheeran on Wednesday night, described the pop-star as a “humble, appreciative and a very thankful guy”.

Mcfarlane said Sheeran was planning to reveal his tattoo with fans once he was done travelling the world and was back on social media.

The tattoo artist said he treated Sheeran the same as he would any other customer.

“He was watching his PC while I tattooed him and and sang along to the radio. Those weren’t his songs though,” he said

The hardest part was to get Sheeran to the studio without “haunting and screaming girls” surrounding the shop, Mcfarlane said.

The two artists met up for lunch on Monday and discussed tattoo details and a green stone carving idea, which ended up being a whale tail.

“I did the carving throughout the week and presented it to him on Friday,” Mcfarlane said.

Mcfarlane said it was “really cool” how the celebrity appreciated New Zealand culture. Sheeran also had a three-year-old tattoo of a kiwi bird under his arm.

Mcfarlane waited till Sheeran left New Zealand on Monday to post up the photos with him on Facebook.

“I respected the fact that he wanted to have some quiet time without any hustle,” he said.

Sheeran said he loved Queenstown and his next destinations were Australia and Japan, Mcfarlane said.

This was not a first celebrity visit for a White Tiger Tattoo studio, five years ago shop owner Greg Burt tattooed Peter Jackson.

Sheeran spent a week in Queenstown and was spotted at bars and restaurants on Monday night.

On his social media accounts in December Sheeran said he would be taking a break from his phone and social media while travelling the world.

Ryan Tedder has shared the secrets of his recording sessions with Harry Styles, Ed Sheeran and Adele.

The OneRepublic frontman joined Nick Grimshaw to premiere his band’s new single Wherever I Go on the Radio 1 Breakfast Show and chat about his recent collaborations.

He revealed he has a “revolving door” policy in hotel rooms, with huge stars visiting to record future hits.

Harry and Ed are two stars he worked with on a recent London visit.
“Last time I was in London I had this thing set up at the Corinthia Hotel, it was amazing,” Ryan told Nick Grimshaw.

“I had Ed Sheeran in there, we were writing for him, Harry Styles came through. It was this revolving door and everyone I had in there, I thought, ‘I prefer this to working in a studio.’

“For the same amount of money that you’re going to spend on a studio – and they’re expensive – if you take the same currency and find a totally crazy hotel room with a great view of London, you’re going to get more inspiration.”

Ryan has penned smash hits for the likes of Ellie Goulding, Beyonce, Maroon 5 and Ariana Grande but claims he has a special friendship with Ed Sheeran – who he is yet to release music with.
“He got my number from another producer, like two years ago, we started trading texts and next thing you know – we’re playing with him at Wembley,” says Ryan.

“With Taylor Swift it was the same way, the artists come in and out of your life and some of them you become friends with, even when you’re not working.”

Ryan also revealed how he tests his own new music on his collaborators, as he believe the best artists struggle to hide their true feelings.

“When we were finishing the Adele album, she played me a bunch of the album and I played her a couple of of our songs and it was the same with Ed,” he says.

“I’d get the temperature from another artist and they can’t lie, really good artists cannot lie, you can read it all over their faces when they’re not into something.

“With Adele, she’s amazing. If she likes something enough she’ll say ‘who’s singing that? I’ll cut it now, I’d sing that.'”

“Ed Sheeran: Live at Wembley Stadium” was a predictably modest ratings performer.

Update: Per fast national data, NBC’s “Ed Sheeran: Live at Wembley Stadium” drew a total of 2.09 million viewers.

While that is essentially on par with the 2.01 million drawn by last summer’s “Miley Cyrus: Bangerz Tour” special, the broadcast skewed markedly older. “Bangerz” drew a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating; the Sheeran special garnered only a 0.5 in that demo.

The broadcast, moreover, net a mere 0.3 in adults 18-34. It drew a 0.6 in adults 25-54.

Insofar as it was not compellingly strong with youth and teen viewers, it is clear that older adults made up a sizable portion of the audience.

“Live at Wembley” did face competition from FOX’s Teen Choice Awards ceremony, but that show was not at all a strong performer in the aforementioned demographics. It drew a 0.8 in adults 18-34, a 0.8 in adults 18-49, a 0.8 in adults 25-54 and 2.61 million total viewers.

CBS’ combination of “60 Minutes” and “Big Brother” represented far more daunting competition (exact numbers are not yet available due to the preceding golf coverage).
Concert specials – regardless of the mainstream talent involved – rarely deliver strong television ratings.

NBC’s “Ed Sheeran: Live at Wembley Stadium” was no exception.

Sunday’s broadcast drew a soft 1.6 overnight household rating. While that narrowly tops the 1.4 drawn by NBC’s summer 2014 “Miley Cyrus: Bangerz Tour” special, it is not an impressive number.

Due by 11:15AM ET, the adults 18-49 and total viewership numbers will also be unremarkable.

For comparison’s purposes, last year’s two-hour “Bangerz” special drew a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating with 2.01 million viewers.

This past winter’s hour-long “One Direction: The TV Special,” which also aired on NBC, posted a 0.7 with 3.10 million.
