Ed Sheeran has had an incredible 2014

Ed Sheeran is possibly one of the biggest names in the music industry right now, partly in thanks to his latest album ‘X’ which was a massive hit both here and across the pond.

The British musician has been performing show after show of late, and his fans just can’t get enough of him, but we imagine that being in such high demand must take its toll…

And one possible issue for someone as busy as Ed is romance, and the lack of time to actually have one.

However, on the subject of love, the ‘Thinking Out Loud’ performer has revealed that he’d much rather have a lasting relationship than a one night stand because he reckons that’s more fulfulling in the long term.

And in a recent interview, Ed also confessed that he’s no good at chatting up the opposite sex, so clearly he’d prefer a long-term relationship because that would of course negate the necessity to sweet-talk many different women.

Ed candidly revealed: “I’m rubbish at chatting women up. I really am. That’s something you learn at school, and I was never that guy.”

He added: “I still don’t know how to do it. I’m a lot better in a relationship, which is rewarding, not just… a ten-second feeling.”

The Brit also recently spoke with Q magazine and opened up about the time he spent in Hollywood, and he confessed that being English in America is a big deal.

Sheeran explained to the publication that people gave him more attention because of his accent and his nationality, and revealed that Americans think he’s “kooky and fun”.

“Being English just goes a long way in Hollywood,” he added before continuing, “I benefited from it, not sexually, professionally! Everyone thinks you’re kooky and fun.”

During the interview, Ed also revealed that on his days off he likes to, “Watch films and eat chocolate in my underwear.”

We assume/hope that he means he likes to eat chocolate while wearing just his underwear, and not that he uses his pants as some kind of novelty treat holder.
