Speaking of Ed Sheeran, the singer has released the first fan-made music video for his track, That's On Me from his Autumn Variations album. The Brit Award winner shared the video which was created by Beatriz Pinha from Brazil, who was one of thousands of fans who submitted work to be chosen for the project. Ed has handpicked 14 directors, each of whom represents a different country and will share music videos they have created for each of his songs from his album. Meanwhile, Ed has been performing his new album at a number of very special gigs at the Royal Albert Hall recently which Ed described as marking the end of his Autumn Variations campaign.   

Eminem teased his fans when he dropped a snippet of music alongside a new video on Instagram, but Slim Shady isn't set for a comeback anytime soon. The rapper was in fact promoting an upcoming collaboration with the online game, Fortnite. Eminem's verse from the song, Tone Deaf, was played over the top of a new visual, prompting fans of the game to get excited about what the rapper and the game have in store. However, not much is known about what Marshall Mather's participation in the game will entail, but fans will find out more on 2nd December.

Meghan Markle made a meaningful stop at an organisation close to her heart during her surprise trip to Canada recently. The Duchess of Sussex paid a special visit to Justice For Girls in Vancouver, which is a charity dedicated to advocating for the rights and well-being of young girls. The charity said they were delighted to have a return visit from Meghan, and the royal was pictured having deep conversations with its members about striving for equality for teenage girls facing poverty in Canada. Meanwhile, Meghan's pitstop came shortly after she and Prince Harry attended the Vancouver Canucks hockey game on Monday, where the Duke performed a ceremonial puck drop.
