What would aliens from outer space have to say about Ed Sheeran? That’s a serious question, by the way. Imagine what they’d think. Imagine, for a moment, how we might explain to our alien overlords — were they to swing by for a visit — that a scruffy, pasty red-head from Suffolk conquered humankind with just a tiny guitar, a pedal station and a flannel shirt. We’d be forced to lie. “The pedals, they control our minds,” we might explain to the bemused extra-terrestrials. “It wasn’t our fault! We had no warning! It was those damn pedals!” Indeed. There was no warning. We weren’t to know that a young fella named Edward Christopher Sheeran, and his pocket sized six-string (it is a very small guitar), might steal all of our money, occupy all of our chart positions and ruin all of our engagement plans. Would the aliens transport Mr Ed back to their home planet with them, I wonder? Probably not. Why? Because, in case you … [Read more...] about Ed Sheeran: The guy we love to pretend to hate

"What do you say in a situation like that? We're thinking of you [Aoibhe's family], we're sending out prayers and our love, and everybody that's listening.

There isn't a hope in hell - or heaven - that Pope Francis will encourage as many people to take their chances in the great outdoors when he calls here in October. And the pontiff has the good grace to only stay a few days. Sheeran will still be at large in Ireland until May 19, no doubt dropping around to fans' homes - as is his wont - or bothering invalids in wards up and down the country. "He's such a lovely guy," is the constant refrain, as if niceness were enough to negate such wretchedly boring music. Edward Christopher Sheeran MBE is a phenomenon - no doubt about it - and there will doubtless be much excitement at Cork's Pairc Ui Chaoimh tonight when the Irish jaunt - and European tour proper - gets underway. Huge he may be, but wildly overrated he is too. In fact, it is difficult to understand how this man of such modest talents managed to hoodwink so many. Can so many people be so wrong? Yes, they can, actually, and Sheeran's massive success demonstrates that we're living … [Read more...] about Ed Sheeran: The rise of the mediocre nice guy

A big night at the Brits for Ed Sheeran, the singer-songwriter who walked away with a Global Success Award. But despite his international reach, the Shape of You strummer seems to have his heart firmly in the UK: we hear he has bought a property in west London. Holland Park locals tell The Londoner that Sheeran is about to join them in the leafy area after purchasing a multi-million-pound house. He will join David and Victoria Beckham, Elton John and Robbie Williams as a local, and many of his future neighbours are excited to have attracted yet another celebrity. But other residents, we’re told, are concerned about his reputation for raucous parties. One incident in 2016, for example, saw Sheeran cut his face on a sword after some drunken high jinks involving James Blunt and Princess Beatrice. Sheeran, who counts singers Taylor Swift and Ellie Goulding among his friends, may wish to take a leaf out of the Beckhams’ book by sending a note round before any party … [Read more...] about Londoner’s Diary: Is Ed Sheeran heading west with the Beckhams?
