A woman in England will spend 8 weeks in jail for playing Ed Sheeran's "Shape of You" on repeat. 

No, seriously, this is really happening. 

Officials say that Sonia Bryce, 36, engaged in a campaign of noise harassment against her neighbors. Bryce's neighbors, Clare and Jonathan Tidmarsh, say that Bryce subjected their five children to loud music, shouting, and swearing. Bryce reportedly played "Shape of You" on repeat for a continuous half an hour on one occasion.

At least it was a good song, right? Of course, the repeated offenses must get annoying. 

So, like, Bryce must be a total Sheerio, right? Nope, it turns that Bryce doesn't even like Ed Sheeran that much.

Clare, on the other hand, says that she used to enjoy listening to Ed Sheeran's music. Her Sheeran fandom seems to have changed.

“I used to like Ed Sheeran but I’ve taken him off my playlist. It drove us crazy," Tidmarsh said.
