"I feel like that's asking me to do a full-on play for everyone," she said in reference to Bon Jovi performing at her wedding. "I think the man needs a break. He doesn't stop," she explained, per Page Six.

Brown continued, "He's always doing tennis or singing lessons. I think he needs a break, maybe it's a three hour break."

The "Enola Holmes" announced their engagement on April 11th on Instagram. She posted a black-and-white photo of the elated couple on the beach and quoted lyrics from Taylor Swift's "Lover" for the caption.

"I've loved you three summers now, honey, I want 'em all ?," she wrote. The couple received well wishes from celebs like Aaron Paul and Paris Hilton!

X (formerly Twitter) users went wild following the news, to the point where "She's 19" began trending. Many 'Swifties' also praised Brown for using "Lover" lyrics in her announcement.

"Okay, swifties can we talk about the caption," one Swiftie asked, with another commenting, "Not even Taylor managed to write these lyrics under an engagement post…" (per The Blast)

Swift and her partner of six years, "Conversations With Friends" actor Joe Alwyn, parted ways earlier this year.
