Ed Sheeran says musicians pressure themselves way too much. Sheeran is an English singer-songwriter and musician, he sings some of my favorite hits, and what his thoughts are, he thinks musicians are just too caught up in their own appearances. Sheeran, himself explained he once wore a girdle as he wanted to look slimmer while on stage,
insists he doesn’t let critics who keep close tabs on his weight get to him.
”I’ve never tried to look a certain way, and in the beginning the media was not nice, but I never really cared. Taylor [Swift] is the same way. I think the pressure on artists – both male and female – to look good in the media actually comes from the artists themselves. In reality you need to live your life.”
At the beginning of his career, the twenty-four-year-old faced difficulties to make his name known but he never strayed away from his dreams, and he adjusted well to fame.
”It was hard, but throwing in the towel never made any sense to me. Simply, I didn’t have a plan B.
”When I started, I wasn’t that good, but I knew if I just kept playing, I’d get better.”
He added to America’s Glamour magazine:
”It’s a weird adjustment, but I found that I shouldn’t question it. I try not to think, ‘Oh, I’m here with Elton John – this is weird!’ Just roll with it.”
Sheeran is from Hebden Bridge near Halifax, West Yorkshire.
