Meghan recently stopped by KISS FM UK to help promote her upcoming album, Thank You, and got to dishing on several interesting topics, including family, writing music, and even really wanting to join The X Factor U.K.
The most interesting thing that came out of the interview though was when Trainor was asked asked whether she'd be interested in Sheeran taking her to prom!
Instead of telling him her number was No, the pop singer responded:
Bridget Jones in no way has everything under control — she's single again (NO! What happened with Colin Firth?!) and she's pregnant.
Renee Zellweger returns to the beloved character for more hilarity, more romance, and more impeccable fake British accents — just in time for motherhood in Bridget Jones's Baby!

Jamie Lawson came to PerezTV to perform his first single, Wasn't Expecting That, and we are LOVING his debut!!
Of course, he was handpicked by Ed Sheeran to be the first artist signed to the superstar's Gingerbread Man Records label imprint, so it's no wonder that Lawson has got it going on — he's learning from the best!
Word is, Jamie is SUPER important to Ed, and Jamie's success is felt very seriously by his famous label boss — but that success will come easy, because Lawson is insanely talented, with a beautiful voice, to boot!
