Bruno Mars is blaming one person for the new ban on his song “Versace on the Floor” in Indonesia: Ed Sheeran.

Songs by Mars, Sheeran, Ariana Grande and others are prohibited from radio airwaves, except between 10 p.m. and 3 a.m., according to a broadcasting commission based in the province of West Java. They reportedly cited adult content when banning 85 songs, 17 of them from the Western Hemisphere.

Mars took the opening to revive his fake feud with fellow singer Sheeran.

It was a joke of course. Though they rumble on Twitter, the two have been friends for years.

Mars even cracked that he’d hired Sheeran, 28, to sing “Happy Birthday” to him when he turned 33 in October.

Sheeran didn’t look like he minded taking the gig.
