Page Six has a little story about how Elton John wants nothing but the best for Ed Sheeran, and the two’s physical resemblance is frighteningly uncanny. It makes me wonder: Are they actually the same person?

 

A majority of John's advice to the younger singersounds like somethingyou’d tell your younger self which basically proves my point.

First, Elton John told his younger self that he really ought to take a break. You know, cool his jets. “He was so omnipresent, I said ‘Ed, even I’m sick of you. Go away.’ And he did.”

 

Then, Future Ed Sheeran told Young Ed Sheeran that he really ought to watch his weight. “One thing I said to him, I said, ‘Don’t put on weight,’ because he’s very prone to put on weight like I am.” Duh, because you’re the same person.

And then the Elder Self came back with a compliment, because when it all comes down,it’s all about self-care, and making yourself feel good.“He just went away and had a great time. And it was the most brilliant thing he could have done, because it refreshes the soul.”

So yeah. One of them is a time traveling wizard trying to change the course of the present through a relationship with himself. It’s 2017! Things like this are bound to happen.
