Celebs who inspired your favourite pop stars' biggest hits

Wonderwall Logo By Jessica Wedemeyer of Wonderwall | Slide 1 of 34: Whether you'll be blasting love songs or belting breakup anthems this Valentine's Day, there's one thing we can all agree on: There's no better way to express how you feel about someone than through song! In honor of the 2018 Grammys on Jan. 28, Wonderwall.com is taking a look back at the celebrities who inspired some of pop's biggest hits. Keep reading to get the song scoop, starting with two-time 2018 Grammy nominee Ed Sheeran. He's currently nominated for his album "÷" (pronounced "Divide") and hit song "Shape of You." But it's some of his older music that comes with a tale of celebrity inspiration: It's widely believed that Ed's extremely detailed 2014 breakup anthem "Don't" is about his famous ex and her hookup with a certain boybander. The English singer-songwriter, however, has never officially confirmed the rumors: "I never let it slip," he told Entertainment Weekly in 2015. "What happened was one of the newspapers in England just printed that it was confirmed when it never was. We got in touch and they took the story down. But obviously the damage had already been done by that point because every other newspaper picked up on it. So I never actually confirmed it." So who did he never actually confirm that "Don't" is about?
