Ed Sheeran rejects offer for first verified Tinder account -- VIDEO

Sorry, ladies, but you won’t be setting up with a date with Ed Sheeran on Tinder anytime soon.

The popular dating app has been in talks to allow verified accounts for more famous Tinder users, similar to Twitter. Sheeran was apparently offered the very first verified profile – but he ended up turning it down. “It just sounds quite creepy doing that,” he told Total Access in a radio interview. “You’re just using your celebrity status to hook up with chicks.” (You listening, Franco?)

'Saturday Night Live' recap: Seth Rogen gets an evening of predictable jokes

The Seth-Rogen-likes-weed jokes will never get old, apparently. And Seth Rogen knows it.

In the third-time host’s monologue, Rogen read from a journal documenting his time at 30 Rock preparing for Saturday Night Live, including: “Just got pitched about 50 ideas about weed. Unfortunately, we can only do about 10 of them.” The Pineapple Express star milked the line, but this wasn’t the only drug-tinged joke of the night — surprise!

Though it did seem like we were going to escape the episode without an entire sketch dedicated to the munchies, Rogen’s onscreen stoner reputation prevailed. The second-to-last skit starred a spectacularly goofy Kyle Mooney as a weed enthusiast who doesn’t actually smoke pot. Rogen made an appearance in it as a drug dealer, and the two bonded over a weird song. It was all very weird, actually. And not very funny.

Rogen excelled in the non-drug-themed skits, particularly when he played a clumsy husband opposite wife Aidy Bryant, who was stuck with two arm casts and needed his help in everything, from raising a glass at dinner to applying lipstick.

Seth Rogen hosts 'Saturday Night Live' this weekend: Talk about it here!

You know what’s weird? Though tonight marks Seth Rogen’s third stint as SNL host, I realized before writing this post that I couldn’t remember a single sketch he’d done during either of his previous turns. Maybe that’s because it’s been a surprisingly long time since Rogen graced the SNL stage; the last time he was on, he was promoting 2009′s Observe and Report. (The first time he hosted was another era altogether; the 2007 episode featured jabs at Kevin Federline, Senator Larry Craig, and multiple MacGruber sketches.)

More likely, though, it’s because Rogen’s hosting style isn’t particularly flashy. In movies, he gravitates toward genial, laid-back sensitive bro types; in his past stints on SNL, he’s done much of the same, give or take a pair of Muppets sketches that had him donning a big, furry suit. (Dear Internet: Why is “Muppets Hit & Run” not available anywhere online? This is a travesty!) Rogen isn’t much of an impressionist, or an insanely energetic, up-for-anything quintuple threat type — he’s more of a Jason Sudeikis-esque everyguy, but nerdier and schlubier and more likely to talk about being Jewish. (And he’s hosting just in time for Passover — what a mensch.)

Seth Rogen refuses to phone in his 'Saturday Night Live' promos -- VIDEO

Seth Rogen hosts Saturday Night Live this weekend for the third time – so he knows his way around Studio 8H and the whole promo routine. Aidy Bryant… perhaps less so. See, it’s her first time filming SNL promos, and she might be a little nervous… or neurotic… or power-mad. She’s not about to let the Neighbors star phone this one in, especially when this week is really all about her.

Watch the clip below, which features a bonus description of Zac Efron’s haunting beauty. READ FULL STORY
