Ed Sheeran is the sweetest! The Brtish singer granted the dying wish of his 15-year-old fan Triona Prestle, who's been fighting cystic fibrosis since she was a child. After her health got worse, her family and friends started the Twitter campaign #SongForTri—her final wish was for Ed to call and sing her a song. After hearing the campaign on Twitter, Ed called and sang her the song "Little Bird." Minutes later, Triona passed away, and Ed tweeted a simple goodbye message for her.

5 Things You Missed Today (April 3)Ohh, Zac Efron is taking his acting skills to something more serious, The Wrap reported. The High School Musical alum is set to star and produce an adaptation of John Grisham's novel The Associate. The book is a legal thriller about a Yale Law School graduate blackmailed by a group of criminals to spy on the world's largest law firm. How do you think will the movie turn out?

Anna Kendrick and Pharrell Williams in one show? Yes, please! The two will be on Saturday Night Live this weekend—Anna's hosting and Pharrell's performing. Yahoo! Here's the teaser for Anna's SNL appearance, with 12 Years a Slave's Taran Killam. We're looking forward to what she'll be doing for the opening monologue. Will she be singing or throwing more awkward questions and lines? Hmm.

So the friendship between Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift has been on pause since Sel got back together with Justin Bieber. While we want them to be okay again soon, we're also happy that the two are having a blast with their own Lily BFFs. Sel has been spotted hanging out with Lily Collins recently, while Tay went shopping with Victoria's Secret model Lily Aldridge earlier. Yup, they're doing fine with their own Lily besties, but we won't give up hoping that they'd be able to do some catching up soon.


Disney Channel just released the first cast photo for the upcoming Boy Meets World spin-off Girl Meets World. The series follows the story of Cory (Ben Savage) and Topanga's (Danielle Fishel) daughter Riley (Rowan Blanchard) as she figures out teenage life with her best friend Maya (Sabrina Carpenter). Joining them will be Peytom Meyer (isn't he cute?) as Riley's crush, Lucas, Corey Fogelmanis as her nemesis, Farkle, and August Maturo as her younger brother, Auggie. Who's watching the show? Girl Meets World premieres this year on Disney Channel.
