Ed Sheeran recently admitted that his forthcoming album, No. 6 Collaborations Project, was inspired by his desire to do an all-male remake of the 2001 cover of "Lady Marmalade" with Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars. And not surprisingly, Sheeran is not getting trolled for that over-the-top idea. "I just read somewhere that Ed Sheeran wanted to create a male version of 'Lady Marmalade.' I literally cannot think of anything worse than a male version of 'Lady Marmalade,'" one Twitter user wrote, while another tweeted, "Ed Sheeran wanting to remake 'Lady Marmalade' with Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars is the equivalent to mixing mayonnaise, creamy peanut butter and sriracha and then drinking it all. it’s guaranteed that ppl are gonna throw it back up." And an even more exasperated Twitter user added, "Can’t we let women have one thing? One, phenomenal, power anthem? Why do men always have to ruin everything?"
