Ed Sheeran to QUIT music?
It seems Ed Sheeran is getting fed up with life in the spotlight. The 24-year-old phenomenon’s non-stop career is apparently spiraling out of control and he wants out.
“I’d like to live for a bit! I feel like I live in a bubble where normal happens outside, and everything Hollywood happens inside,” claimed Ed. This week’s 60th Ivor Novello Awards saw Ed scoop Songwriter of the Year where he revealed his plans to stop working and escape the spotlight for at least a year.
The news comes just after the ginger prodigy admitted to never really feeling like a rock star. "Getting up and playing with Beyonce - that's the only point I've felt like a rock star. In my own shows, I'm still an awkward British dude with an acoustic guitar," he said.
It’s no surprise though, really. Ed shot to fame just one year ago with his chart-topping album X, shortly followed by multiple sell-out international tours, stopping by our own Dubai Media City Amphitheatre just last month. Let’s give him a break. It’s exhausting being a celeb, you know?
