Bloom plotting switch to music

Orlando Bloom plans to "give music a go".

The 38-year-old Hollywood hunk attended last night's BRIT Awards at the O2 Arena in London, where he jokingly revealed he plans to make a career switch.

Orlando quipped: "The acting thing wasn't working out so well, so I thought I'd give music a go."

The 'Pirates of the Caribbean' star revealed himself to be a huge fan of British act Ed Sheeran, after the 'Thinking Out Loud' hitmaker contributed to the theme of one of his films.

He told The Sun newspaper: "I worked with him on The Hobbit so I have a soft spot for him."

Meanwhile, Ed recently revealed that he hopes Orlando would date his showbiz pal Taylor Swift.

Ed said: "He's [Orlando's] lovely, and they live in the same building [in New York City]. [I'm hoping] the magic might present itself eventually."

However, the union seems unlikely after Orlando decided to sell his fourth-floor, three-bedroom loft in Tribeca, New York City, just six months after he bought it.

The 'Lord of the Rings' star splashed out $4.88m on the property, which is next door to Taylor's home in the city.
