Ed Sheeran Angers Fans for Suggesting an All-Male “Lady Marmalade”

The internet is not loving the shape of Ed Sheeran today. “Shape of you” singer and mega pop-star Ed Sheeran has voiced a silly thought—he wants to remake “Lady Marmalade,” originally by famous girl group LaBelle in 1974 that hit the Billboard hot 100 for one week, then covered by girl group All Saints in 1998, that peaked to UK Singles Chart.

But we all mostly remember it from the soundtrack of Moulin Rouge! in 2013, performed by contemporary pop singers, Pink, Christina Aguilera, Mýa, and Lil’ Kim. The song peaked at number one hit on Billboard 100 for 5 weeks, topped UK Charts, and was the ninth song to reach number one by two different musical acts in Amerca.

The bars for Lady Marmalade has been high for music lovers, and it’s definitely higher than Ed Sheeran’s comment in a new interview with Charlamagne Tha God, where he said his new collaborative album No. 6 Collaborations Project, “actually started with one idea I had which was — you remember ‘Lady Marmalade,’ right? This is such a silly idea. I had an idea of doing that. Like you could get Bruno, Bieber and me on a record. How fun would that be?” A move too bold, Ed.

Well, unfortunately for dear Ed, no one seems to share the thought that this is going to be fun. What will actually be fun is the Twitter reactions to that collaboration. Here’s a demo of Ed Sheeran’s future—
