Bruno Mars And Ed Sheeran Felt Left Out And Started A Twitter Feud
First, there was Taylor and Nicki's VMA beef.
Not long after, Meek Mill and Drake got into it.
Now, it's Ed Sheeran and Bruno Mars' turn to exchange some fighting words -- but this time, it's all in good fun.
Last night, the two participated in an hours-long mock feud on social media that began after Mars jokingly tweeted he wanted "in on this Twitter beef.”
Mars, of course, was referencing the separate battles Swift/Minaj and Mill/Drake are currently ensnared in, both of which were spawned by the (apparently controversial) recently announced VMA nominations.
Mars and Sheeran are both up for several awards for “Uptown Funk” and “Thinking Out Loud."
Both Mars and Sheeran will be competing against each other in the Video of the Year, Best Male Video and Best Pop Video categories, and Mars is up for Best Direction while Sheeran scored another three nods in various categories.
Last night, Mars poked fun at his peers' ongoing Twitter feuds by starting a mock fight with fellow nominee Ed Sheeran.

About 20 minutes later, Sheeran still hadn't responded, so Mars tried to rally him up a bit more.

@BrunoMars any way we do dis you gon' come up short — Ed Sheeran (@edsheeran) July 22, 2015
Mars got punny as f*ck, letting the world know the feud was, in fact, a massive joke.

And then this happened.

The WWE even challenged Bruno to make good on those fighting words.

Well played, guys.
