Not the coolest musician, but Sheeran doesn’t care


Singer Ed Sheeran said it does not affect him if some people do not like him. The 26-year-old musician said he ventured into the music industry to inspire people from all walks of life, reported FemaleFirst.

“I often meet kids at the meet and greet that are, like, six and have just started playing guitar because they like ‘Castle on the Hill’ or something. I feel like that’s why we make music. I might not be the coolest musician in the world but they enjoy it, and I enjoy it. I love it. The reason I make music is to get it to as many people as possible, so, like, having all ages, shapes, and sizes, a gig is great,” Sheeran told MTV News.

The “Shape of You” hitmaker previously called himself an “underdog” compared to the other headliners at the recent Glastonbury Festival.
