ACCORDING to Bruno Mars’ latest Instagram video, Ed Sheeran is for hire.
Eleven-time Grammy award winner Mars celebrated his 33rd birthday on Monday by “hiring” four-time Grammy winner Sheeran to serenade him, according to a video posted on the birthday boy’s Instagram page.
In the video, which includes the hashtag #extraforever in the caption, Sheeran serenades “two-time Super Bowl performing Bruno” while the singer dines on a tower of cupcakes.
He then commands Sheeran to perform “again!”, to which a sheepish Sheeran complies.

It’s unknown how much private serenades such as this one contributed to 27-year-old Sheeran’s status as the richest solo artist in the world. The Perfect singer made an average of $138,686 a day last year, netting a total profit of over $50 million.
Sheeran previously spoke of his friendship with Mars on Entertainment Tonight where he said: “We know each other very well. We hang out.”
This video sheds new light on the nature of the pair’s “hangouts” and is sure to further existing rumours around a potential collaboration between the pair, after Sheeran said he had hung out in the studio with Mars.
