Ed Sheeran may be the image of perfection in many young fans eyes, but every now and again he likes to remind us that he really is human.
The 24 year old singer/song writer gave an interview to an Australian radio show with host DJ Kent (also known as ‘Smallzy’ Small). Sheeran gave away perhaps a little bit more than DJ Kent expected when he admitted to once soiling his pants on stage! In the past, Ed hasn’t made it a habit of shrinking away from tough or awkward questions and this interview was no different.
One of life’s greatest lessons is to never trust a fart. Especially while being watched by millions of adoring fans. Yet that’s exactly what Ed did while performing on stage. He admittedly is a habitual performance-farter but this time that fart turned out to be more than he bargained for. He told DJ Kent:
“I actually once misjudged a fart on stage, which ended up being a shart. Halfway through I was like, ‘All right, I’m just going to stand for the rest of the performance, and hope it’s over soon and then go home and throw these trousers.'”
He may have thrown away his soiled pants, but there’s no throwing away the knowledge that he continued to perform to fans despite having a heavy load in the back. Now THAT is commitment!
A few toilet rumors won’t keep Ed down! This week he was nominated for three awards from MTV’s Video Music Awards. For his hit Thinking Out Loud he could potentially win Video of the Year, Best Male Video and Best Pop Video.
Right on Ed! And thanks for the info, I’ll make sure not to stand down wind at your next concert!
