Give Me Love.





I know you all know I'm a massive Ed Sheeran fan so it feels like a tradition to post every new singles video up on here where I'll babble about how beautiful it is and he is etcetera. But I only say these things because I mean it. This is the final single off his + album and of course it is utterly lovely, it's his lyrics I think that really get to me more than anything. I'm also glad to see that Ed isn't the main person in the video like he rarely is, I think it just makes me feel more about the song than his cute little face, though I'm happy to see that as much as humanly possible.

Now while watching this for the first time (I've now watched it 7 times in a row) it made me wonder about something which is where this tweet came from " can artists who have girls in there music videos have chunkier ladies please it'd be much appreciated. #cheers" WHY DO ALL THE GIRLS HAVE TO BE SO BONEY and ill looking I mean I know she's supposed to be a tortured soul and disturbed but could she not be a chubby one bigger girls are just like that to.  I'm sure SOME people would say it's not what everyone else is like or whatever but isn't the national dress size average a size 14/16 now? It would be nice to see someone who was amazing and beautiful and that size! Okay rant over now, but it really does annoy me I mean loads of young girls see these video's and think that the only way boys or well anyone will like them is if they look like this. I'm sure not all girls think like this but at the age of 12 I know I definitely did!

Right I think my rant is actually over now! anyway of course this video is beautifully captured and filmed without looking like its filmed on a beach in L.A ( I hate to love those kind of video's) and there is some lovely tea stirring from Ed so of course I'm happy! Also a really meaningful and just perfect song, also know it's one of Steph from Buttons, Bows and Brogues fave tunes to! So what do you think of this and my rant? Let me know!

  1. Oh wow, thats Isabel Lucus, she's lost even more weight. I'd love to see all bodies represented, you certainly don't see enough size diversity in music videos, or even enough in TV and cinema.

  2. I LOVE Ed but I have to say I'm kind of dissapointed that a video for this song has come out, because that song is amazing and everyone feels and imagines something else when listening to it. The music video is good, yes, but it just doesn't click for me with that song. I've seen him on a gig twice now (second time wasn't long ago, 2nd Nov!) and in both of them he started with Give Me Love, and I don't want to rant about it but I just feel like the second time wasn't as special as it was before. It was freaking amazing though, but you get what I mean? Also to add to your rant, that Isabel, she's gorgeous, but yeah exactly, why does all the girls have to be so skinny! I hope sizes bigger than 10 pop up on videos too, it would be awesome :)

  3. Oh, btw. I see you saw him in Manchester! I've seen him there too! And like you I've seen him back in January aw! And I did have a similar wait in the queue before, 3 hours in cold, wind and rain, boo! I also preferred Passenger but the other guy was cool with using the loop pedal.
