Ed Sheeran Delayed Album Release Because Of “S**t Storm” Caused By Donald Trump’s Victory

Ed Sheeran has revealed that he held back on releasing his new album because of Donald Trump.

The singer had originally planned to release the album back in November 2016, but changed his mind because of the “s**t storm” caused by Trump’s election as US president.

The ‘Castle on a Hill’ hitmaker said: “The plan was to come in September and then the album was meant to come in November, but the week the album was coming out was the week the presidential elections – that was just a s**t storm of media and I was like obviously if I come out with a record then no one’s gonna care and then the week after Bruno [Mars] came out, the week after The Weeknd came out and I was like …

“It feels like a clean start this year not like any time I’ve come out there’s always been another person. Like remember the first year I came out, being nominated for every award but then Adele was nominated for every award, and I’d kinda turn up like, uh yeah. But this year it kinda feels like there’s no one there … I’m very, very confident in this year. This year is mine!”

And the 25-year-old singer is hoping his latest release will be the “biggest album in the world” as he feels his career is “really beginning” now.

Ed Sheeran has made his comeback and he’s better not bigger this time around.

The Thinking Out Loud hitmaker, 25, has shed a whopping three stone since his time away and he’s done it in a surprising way.

Ed swears by a working out just 10 minutes a day and was given a high-intensity regime by his girlfriend Cherry Seaborn, 24.

“I didn’t realise how active I was on tour,” Ed explained.

“My diet was pizza and beer, but because I was doing two hours a night I was really in shape.

“I stopped touring and carried on my diet of pizza and beer. Suddenly I didn’t fit in anything.

“I was like, ‘All my clothes have shrunk’.”

Ed, who is on course to make chart history after making his comeback with two singles – Shape of You and Castle on the Hill – has dropped to 11.5 stone.

Speaking on Total Access on Signal 1 radio, he said:

“I did ten minutes a day without fail — intervals of 30 seconds sprinting and 30 jogging.

“The key is to not miss a day, so you don’t have to do an hour.”

Ed has previously worked with One Direction, and wrote their hits Little Things and Moments.

Ed also admitted that he originally wrote Shape of You with Rihanna in mind but decided to keep the song for himself in the end as he didn’t think the pop starlet would want to sing those lyrics.

He revealed: ‘I was singing some of the lyrics and was like Rihanna is not going to sing these words so kept it to myself.

He continued: ‘Castle on the Hill is a love song for Suffolk because I don’t think anyone has ever done that.

‘I’ve shot the music video actually in Suffolk and the cast of it are people from my high school. The main guy who looks just like me is weirdly from my sixth form.’

The flame-haired star had originally planned to release his new music in September and confessed to playing some of his new tracks for strangers he met in the pub.

Ed Sheeran Sued For $20 Million For Allegedly Beat Jacking ‘Photograph’

Ed Sheeran is reportedly being sued for a whopping $20-MILLION. That’s a lot of t-shirts.

The 25-year-old singer-songwriter has been hit with a lawsuit by Martin Harrington and Thomas Leonard – who claim his track Photograph is “note-for-note” the same as their 2009 song Amazing, released by UK X Factor winner Matt Cardle.

Attorney Richard Busch, who recently represented the family of Marvin Gaye in the Blurred Lines copyright case, filed a lawsuit on behalf of the pair in federal court in Los Angeles on Wednesday, according to US reports.

The lawsuit states: “The chorus sections of Amazing and the infringing Photograph share 39 identical notes – meaning the notes are identical in pitch, rhythmic duration, and placement in the measure.

“The songs’ similarities reach the very essence of the work. The similarities go beyond substantial, which is itself sufficient to establish copyright infringement, and are in fact striking.

“The similarity of words, vocal style, vocal melody, melody, and rhythm are clear indicators, among other things, that Photograph copies Amazing.”

Ed’s co-writer Johnny McDaid, publishers Sony/ATV Songs and Polar Patrol Music, touring company Nathan Cable Touring and record label Warner Music Group have all been named in the lawsuit.

Last year Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams were ordered to pay $7.3 million in copyright infringement due to similarities between their number one single Blurred Lines and Gaye’s Got To Give It Up.

 

Ed Sheeran Says He Once Pooped His Pants While Performing

Ed Sheeran admitted during an interview with Australian radio station Nova FM that he once accidentally pooped his pants while performing.

When the radio host asked Sheeran if he ever let out gas onstage, the star responded, “all the time,” before he launched into the TMI story.

“I actually misjudged a fart one time, which ended up being a shart,” he said. “It was like midway through a performance and I was really lively, and then halfway through I was like, ‘Alright, I’m just going to stand still for the rest of this performance, and hope it’s over soon, and then go home and throw these trousers out!'”

The 24-year-old said the accident was likely the result of jet-setting between several international performances. “I was very ill,” he told the Aussie station, laughing.

Sheeran, who is currently in the middle of his X world tour, was just nominated for six awards at the upcoming 2015 MTV Video Music Awards. Sheeran is only second to pal Taylor Swift, who leads the pack with nine nods.
