Ed Sheeran: I’m responsible for boosting the sex lives of ginger men

Ed Sheeran believes ginger men are getting more sex – and they have him to thank for it.

The British singer, whose heartfelt songs have found international acclaim, told a US radio station that British ginger men are capitalising on riding a wave of interest from the opposite sex thanks to the fashionability of their hair colour.

“There are a lot of ginger dudes in England who are using me,” he said in the interview. “That’s why I’m not hating on it. You know what, we’re finally getting laid! This is a good thing.

As evidence, Sheeran cited a man who apparently impersonates him in clubs as a seduction technique.

“My cousin went on holiday with all her mates,” explained the ginger-locked singer. “Her mate was in a bar and this dude came up to her and said ‘I have my song in on the radio and my name is Ed Sheeran’.

“So she is like ‘Hold on a minute’ and she goes to get my cousin and she says (to the guy) ‘Tell her that.’

“And he goes ‘Yeah my name is Ed Sheeran and I have got this song on the radio’ and then Kathy, my cousin, just pulls out her ID and holds it up and it says Kathy Sheeran and she yells out ‘Look at that! Not today mate… not today’.
“And the guy goes to all the bars in all the land. Apparently it works for him.”

Paramore, Ed Sheeran, John Fogerty among Beale Street Music Fest acts

Rockers Paramore and Lenny Kravitz, English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran, alternative icons the Pixies, Creedence Clearwater Revival legend John Fogerty, and rapper Wale are among the acts that will appear at the 2015 Beale Street Music Festival. The 38th edition of fest runs from May 1-3 at Tom Lee Park.

Memphis in May officials confirmed the lineup of 60-plus acts. Among the other notable names are indie-folk act Band of Horses, roots-rockers the Avett Brothers and Wilco, Grammy nominated Irish rocker Hozier, and returning music fest favorites the Flaming Lips.

Others who were also confirmed include singer-songwriters St. Vincent, Ryan Adams and Jenny Lewis, funk, blues, and rap favorites George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Lecrae and G-Eazy, as well as rock acts Cage the Elephant and Breaking Benjamin.

Gary Bongiovanni, editor-in-chief of the concert industry’s leading journal, Pollstar, says that music fest’s effort to place a group of up-and coming acts in the upper echelon of the bill — including the likes of St. Vincent and Hozier — is a positive step. “Sounds like they’ve got a pretty well-rounded lineup this year, with enough new, hipper elements that it should attract a cross-section of people,” noted Bongiovanni.

Ed Sheeran wins best British male solo artist at Brit awards 2015

Congratulations to Ed on his win!

Ed Sheeran has won the award for best British male solo artist at this year’s Brit awards, held at London’s O2 Arena on 25 February. Dedicating his award to his TV plugger Deirdre, the pop singer, guitarist and songwriter outdid fellow nominees George Ezra, Damon Albarn, Sam Smith and Paolo Nutini to take home the award.

Sheeran has enjoyed a year of mammoth commercial success. His second album, X, was released in June 2014 and went on to sell 1.7m copies in the UK – it was not only the bestselling and fastest-selling album of the year, but also shifted about 1m more copies than 2013’s bestseller, Midnight Memories by One Direction.

Sheeran was at the top of the UK’s album chart for 12 consecutive weeks and was named the most-streamed artist worldwide in 2014. Hit singles Sing, featuring Pharrell Williams, and Thinking Out Loud, helped boost Sheeran’s profile last year, making him an almost inescapable presence in pop music.

On the morning of the Brit awards, Sheeran spoke on radio station Capital FM’s Breakfast Show about his preference for performing over receiving industry accolades.

“Performing for me is the bit I really enjoy,” he said, in an interview with DJs Lisa Snowdon and Dave Berry. “The bit I hate is sitting there, waiting to see whether you’ve got validation by the industry that you fund. That’s what I don’t like.”

Previously, Sheeran earned Brit award nominations and wins in 2012. That year, he walked away with best British breakthrough act and best British male solo artist, and also got nominations for best British single, for The A Team, and British album of the year for his debut, +.
