Ed Sheeran: Labels Said I Was Too Fat And Ginger
These days, Ed Sheeran is something of a heartthrob figure in the popular music realm, despite looking like a root vegetable with a face.
But back when Ed was a mere rhombus-faced busker without a label to call home, record execs didn’t think he’d make much of a pin-up at all.
“Every single label I had gone to at the time had told me this song wasn’t a hit,” he told SBTV’s NCS. “They said this song wouldn’t work.
“And the fact that I’m slightly chubby and ginger was not a good ‘marketing tool’ for them.
“But being an individual makes you stand out from the crowd.”
This was just an excuse to make a series of mean-spirited Ed Sheeran jokes, wasn’t it? Oh well.
