Oh, look: Ed Sheeran is back in the news for talking about Taylor Swift. Again. Is anyone besides me starting to get the vibe that Sheeran’s press tour for his new album is more like the Sheeran-talks-about-Swift press tour?
Also, he’s getting progressively more douchey as this tour goes on. What is with this frat bro tool image he’s trying to have lately? In the latest news, like the classy guy he is, Sheeran talks about going on tour with Swift and hooking up with a whole bunch of her friends.
“Taylor’s world is celebrity,” Sheeran told Patrick Doyle of Rolling Stone. “I was this 22-year-old awkward British kid going on tour with the biggest artist in America, who has all these famous mates. It was very easy… I would often find myself in situations waking up and looking over and being like, ‘How the fuck did that happen?'”
Did anyone else roll their eyes at how incredibly skeevy that was?
Oh, and it gets worse: According to Doyle, Sheeran was drunk when he showed up to the interview.
Remember sweet ginger Ed Sheeran? The one who wrote nice love songs and posed in silly Instagram selfies with his fans? Say goodbye to that, because the Sheeran we get now sings about how a woman is only as good as her hot bod, bangs his tour mate’s friends and brags about it while drunk. He went from sweet li’l cutie pie to hard pass real quick.
Then again, we did just elect a dude to the fucking presidency who bragged about sexually assaulting women, so maybe the Ed Sheeran we’re getting now is exactly the Ed Sheeran we deserve.
