Maybe someday, your swipes will meet. 

Celebrities—they’re just like us! They also buy food items at grocery stores (while looking amazing), and they also take out their garbage (while looking amazing), and they also drink half a bottle of wine on a Wednesday night and cruise Tinder (while looking amazing).

Tinder has become synonymous with online dating and we normals aren’t the only ones who love to get our swipe on. In fact, famous types are so taken with the app that Tinder will soon introduce verified badges. This is so you know you’re actually swiping Channing Tatum and not getting catfished. (Just kidding, Tatum is married. Don’t go hunting him down on Tinder.)

But apparently, Tinder is being a little stingy with these verified badges.

Ed Sheeran, the red-headed, one-man version of Dashboard Confessional and much-publicized friend of Taylor Swift, did not make the cut. After Sheeran said that he didn’t want a badge because he finds it “creepy” and that it seems like “you’re just using your celebrity status to hook up with chicks,” Tinder was all like:

We are only verifying 25 top celebrities to start.

Sick burn, bro. Also, 25 top celebrities… on Tinder? In the world? Who have brown hair? With tigers in their profile pictures? The jury’s still out, but because celebrities have been so forthcoming about their Tinder use (or because people have outed them), here’s a fairly lengthy list of who could potentially make the top 25:

Katy Perry

Lily Allen (who is married, with children)

Josh Groban

Jamie Kennedy

Louise Thompson

A ton of Olympics athletes

Miss USA 2012 Nana Meriwether

Lindsay Lohan

Ben Flajnik

Ashton Kutcher (who is engaged and expecting a child… so perhaps he’s a former user.)

Pauly D

Eric Stonestreet

A variety of hockey players

Mindy Kaling (sort of?)

Niall Horan (maybe)

Andy Cohen

Chris Pine (another maybe)


Greivis Vasquez, a basketball player

former NFL player

May the odds be ever in your favor.

Is someone leaking Star Wars secrets on Tinder?
Director J.J. Abrams and Disney have been aggressively tight-lipped about Star Wars Episode VII, but on a production as large as this, someone's going to start talking eventually. Indeed, reports have already emerged that filming has begun in the Middle East—presumably recreating the original Tunisian set of Tatooine.
