    1. Ed Sheeran has a serious look-alike.

    Every year, thousands of people, located mostly in hot, smelly pits of the country like Las Vegas and the panhandle of Florida, take part in extravagant Elvis Presley look-alike contests. But every day for the last few years, one man in Manchester, England has been unwillingly participating in an Ed Sheeran look-alike contest and by now I imagine he's pretty tired of it.

    Yes, Wesley Byrne, a 25-year-old Asda employee in Manchester looks A LOT like the ginger pop star we're all more familiar with.
    He says he's been taking it all in stride, though he has had a couple of encounters with drunk and rabid Sheeran fans who don't believe he isn't the man they think he is. It must be tiring being a celebrity doppelganger, but it kind of feels like a gut punch when your doppelganger is Ed Sheeran. Like, of all the famous, beautiful people in the world you could look like, you get stuck looking like this guy.

    For what it's worth, Byrne has said that he's picked up the guitar to at least try and emulate his famous twin a bit, so props to him for trying to make the best out of a bad situation.

    2. Offset cheated on Cardi B, but they're staying together?

    Apparently, all is not well in the happy land of matrimony between Cardi B and Migos rapper Offset. Though the two have been together only a short time, rumors have started flying around left and right that Offset cheated on Cardi, perhaps on several occasions, with some of the indiscretions supposedly captured on tape.

    Though interestingly enough, Cardi has been somewhat cryptic about the whole thing, seemingly acknowledging that Offset cheated on her, while at times claiming that the sex tapes of Offset were from before the two got together.

    At the same time, Cardi has said that all relationships face their hurdles, and she talked with fans about whether or not ending the relationship would be a smart move for someone in her position.

    Either way, Offset better pull a Jay-Z and think twice about any decisions he makes moving forward, and thank god or whoever that he's in the company of a literal queen.

    3. Atlanta turns up for Kendrick, turns down for Trump

    Earlier this week, Atlanta was the center of attention as college football hosted its championship game between the Georgia Bulldogs and the Alabama Crimson Tide. But most importantly, Kendrick Lamar played the halftime show, and people turned up.

    But you know who didn't turn up? Donald Trump, of course. Trump apparently left the game before the show, thus becoming the only person to willingly give up free tickets to Kendrick Lamar. Trump also had a moment in the musical spotlight, though his was decidedly less cool, as it seems he forgot the words to the national anthem, and instead mumbled his way through the performance.

    ATL-native Quavo also might have turned down, as he apparently lost a big bet with Drake over the result of the game. In the video, we can hear a particularly excited Drake calling Quavo out, so we'll have to see whether or not Quavo holds up to his end of the bargain.
