Ed Sheeran just unintentionally riled up the entire world for saying he wanted to recreate an ICONIC feminist track with just men, because we totally need more all-male ensembles in 2019, right? The singer has said he’d love to recreate “Lady Marmalade,” a song that was first made famous by Pattie LaBelle but became a worldwide female anthem when Pink, Christina Aguilera, Mýa, and Lil’ Kim performed it on the 2001 Moulin Rouge soundtrack.

In an interview with Charlamagne Tha God, the English singer said he had an idea to remake the song with Bruno Mars and Justin Bieber. Sounds… underwhelming, especially considering his company was accused of rape in 2001 and made transmisogynistic comments on-air in July 2017.

Ed explained to Charlamagne that his new collaborative album “No. 6 Collaborations Project” actually began with that very idea. “This project actually started with one idea I had which was — you remember “Lady Marmalade,” right? This is such a silly idea. I had an idea of doing that. Like you could get Bruno, Bieber and me on a record. How fun would that be?”

The internet was understandably shook by Ed’s terrible idea, and the Twitter reactions are hilarious.

Thankfully, none of us have to worry about listening to Ed trying to hit Xtina’s high notes in “Lady Marmalade,” because the song isn’t featured on the album’s final tracklist. Need something to get over that traumatic news story? Stream “Lady Marmalade.” The real one.
