Ed Sheeran To Play Lisa’s Love Interest On ‘Simpsons’ ‘La La Land’ Parody

After traveling to Westeros on Game of Thrones this weekend, Ed Sheeran is headed for the town of Springfield where he’ll join The Simpsons in its upcoming 29th season. 

Sheeran will guest star on a musical-themed episode called “Haw-Haw Land,” which Entertainment Weekly reports will be a parody of La La Land with him playing a Ryan Gosling-esque musician named Brendan. Naturally, he’s just Lisa’s type. 

“He keeps alternating [between], ‘You’re not that great, but you could be fantastic,’ and she keeps falling for him because of his talent,” executive producer Al Jean told EW. There’s actually a love triangle forming as well with Nelson, who tries to impress Lisa with his singing talent. How is Nelson’s voice? “Well, you’ll hear,” says Jean with a chuckle. “He sings ‘Save the Last Dance for Me’ with new lyrics, and he kind of bullies those notes.”

Sheeran will be singing a bit in the episode when he meets Lisa, impressing sax-loving school girl. But it doesn’t sound like everyone will be falling for Brendan. Jean continued to state Milhouse, who has often professed his love for Lisa, will not be so pleased by Brendan showing up in his hometown. 

“When Lisa meets Brendan, Milhouse comes in and he goes, ‘I’ve brought three kinds of waters — cold, warm, and lukewarm,'” said Jean. “Lisa goes, ‘I’m not thirsty anymore,’ and ‘Milhouse goes, ‘Dammit!’ That’s the effect he has on somebody else…. The girls love him but he’s difficult.”

Sheeran is reportedly a longtime Simpsons fan and even has a tattoo of the show’s three-eyed fish, Blinky. 

“We had a perfect part for him,” said Jean. “So we said, ‘Oh, great, we’ll have him do this!’ And we recorded him over the phone from England.”

Lele Rose & The Thorns​ Share New Video, ​”Running Away​”

Published

By

Written by the beautiful and talented Lele Rose, at home on her piano and recorded with engineer Blaine Misner at Cue Studios Falls Church, VA next to her hometown of Arlington/Washington DC, the song is a metaphor about this current time in her life of being a young adult and a working musician making it in the industry. With everything going on in the world today from violent acts to natural disasters, the song enables the listener to escape through beautiful melodies, the grand piano, and the immersion of the electric guitar.

“Running Away” brings Rose’s songwriting to life through the true story of a piano girl finding her rock n roll band and hitting the road on tour. Instead of running away from herself and her dreams, she finds an escape through music to live out her dreams and take her audience with her.

Most recognized by her distinct soulful voice and refined piano chops, singer/songwriter Lele Rose returned to the stage in LA with the newest edition of her rock band, The Thorns. United by The Sunset Jam’s weekly show at The Viper Room in West Hollywood presented by Erik Himel, the band came together to create the final scene in Rose’s latest music video.

With a full house at The Mint LA last Thursday (October 19th), Lele Rose & The Thorns put on an electrifying show for the release of their Running Away Music Video filmed on a rooftop in downtown Los Angeles by Industrialism Films. THE THORNS includes creator Lele Rose on lead vocals, keyboard, guitar, Damon Cisneros – co-musical director on drums, Stonehand Andrew lead guitar, Megan Rask bass, Andre Ribeiro keyboards. Performing pop rock soul music live from her albums Bliss Kingdom, and Back 2 Life with a Bruno Mars cover, the band received an enormous positive response from the crowd. Sophia Radisch opened the night and Mike Bauer closed it out, KBH Entertainment presented a solid night.

Feel A Little Bit With Anna Dellaria’s Beautiful Single ‘Bolder’

Man…it’s been just a rough day. Spent this morning saying goodbye to a family dog who had reached the end of their journey here and sent them off onto their next adventure. However, it is in these moments of sadness where we can turn to music to find a little bit of light, or ones where we can cry to them a little bit more. This R&B/Pop anthem ‘Bolder’ by Anna Dellaria is no exception, and is in fact one that may have made me shed one last tear.

“It’s the moment you realize you have to end a relationship – whether family, friend, or romantic – you can’t ignore that it’s falling apart. It’s a brutally honest and vulnerable conversation. Maybe they’re bad for you, maybe the circumstances just don’t allow for it to continue, but there’s this sense that it shouldn’t or couldn’t keep going. Although there’s this inevitability, you still have a choice as to how it ends. If you know it’s going to be the last night spent together, how would you want to spend it?  Essentially: if we’re going down, we’re going out with a bang.  So often we look at our failures, or the closing of chapters, as these hugely negative things.  I fantasized about the idea that maybe we can acknowledge where we went wrong and how to grow from it, and celebrate the beauty in what was.”  – Anna

Her beautiful and powerful voice dances around the track as the listener becomes captivated in the message and the music that surrounds them. It brings me back to my days of watching my friends in their contemporary dances and revives the emotion that is so often found in those tracks. “Bolder” also aired in the finale scene of Hilary Duff’s “Younger” to 1.30 million viewers, and was met with an overwhelming response from listeners in search of the then unreleased song – igniting a full release and partnership with Shazam and TV Land.

Check out ‘Bolder’ below, and enjoy!
