From John & Chrissy to Beyoncé & JAY-Z: The Love Songs Inspired by These Stars' Better Halves
"ALL OF ME"
Ed Sheeran wrote the lyrics to "Perfect" after attending a party with wife Cherry Seaborn at pal James Blunt's house. "We got really hammered and took our shoes off and danced on his lawn and then jumped in the pool," he previously said. "And then the next day I was like, 'That's a cool story,' so I put it in a song."
"DIE A HAPPY MAN"
"'Montana,' it's basically about being there with my wife. I proposed there, so it has a really special meaning. That's really where it started from, it's really about this moment when you're saying, 'I want to make this step,'" Justin Timberlake said about his wife Jessica Biel inspiring a song off his new album Man of the Woods.
"CALL IT WHAT YOU WANT"
"CLOSE YOUR EYES"
"I've been in a relationship with this man for 10 years and I've figured out no one can push your buttons like your mother or your partner," Pink said about her inspiration for the track. "I have a tattoo on my wrist that says 'True Love' with [my husband] Carey [Hart]'s name under it. I think lyrically, it's really funny and really honest, and people think I'm nuts anyway, so why not tell the truth?"
"MAKE ME LIKE YOU"
"And if my children knew, I don't even know what I would do / If they ain't look at me the same, I would prolly die with all the shame / You did what with who? What good is a ménage à trois when you have a soulmate, you risked that for Blue?"
"Ten times out of nine, I know you're lying / But nine times outta 10, I know you're trying / So I'm trying to be fair," sings Beyoncé on Lemonade, which documents the ups-and-downs of a relationship and is rumored to have been inspired by her husband.
"PIECE BY PIECE"
"I had [my daughter] River, and even from holding her the first day, I was like, 'How could anyone walk away from that?' Then I started thinking that my husband [Brandon Blackstock] is such a great father. He's not an audience guy — he is onstage doing the work with me. He changes diapers, he stays up, and if I've had a late night, he'll wake up with her in the morning. We're definite partners, and I felt so lucky," Kelly Clarkson previously said about the song inspired by her husband.
