Can you believe this shizz?
Apparently, singer-songwriter-absolute sweetheart Ed Sheeran was told by record labels before he got made it big that he was "too chubby and ginger" to be signed.
"Every single label I had gone to at the time had told me this song wasn't a hit, this song wouldn't work, and the fact that I was slightly chubby and ginger wasn't a good 'marketing tool' for them."
Ed did have some super inspirational advice though:
"Being an individual makes you stand out from the crowd."
For just a lad of 22, Ed has some John Lennon-levels of wisdom. Just please, don't start dating Yoko.
