Ed Sheeran Says Record Labels Thought He Was Too 'Chubby And Ginger' To Sign!

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.

Say Sing WHAA? Ed, you can sign anything of ours any day of the week!! Really. Here's what he had to say in a recent interview:

"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."

First off, Ed, ya look great! There's a reason THE Ron Weasley Rupert Grint would be in YOUR music video, or you're on tour with THE Taylor Swift. It's because you're THE bomb. THE end of discussion.

Ed did have some super inspirational advice though:

"Being an individual makes you stand out from the crowd."

Too true.

For just a lad of 22, Ed has some John Lennon-levels of wisdom. Just please, don't start dating Yoko.

    I'd say his music is too boring and hookless.

    Honestly, good for him for sticking with it. This dude is awesome. I started watching him b/c Rupert Grint was in his music video and then I was hooked. I saw him live in Toronto and this dude is AMAZING live. Everything on his song is him, beatboxing, drumming against his guitar. As well, he sang a rock song, sang soft, sang his own upbeat songs, rapped. I mean the kid has talent, we'll definitely be seeing him around for years to come :)

    I kind of think his face look weird, he's just not attractive at all but I kind like some of his songs.

    Well going by what I'm hearing on my radio, the industry is run but tasteless assholes who wouldn't know quality music, if it punched them square in the face.

    I believe it though. Unfortunately Ed is not a skinny, dark skin, dark long hair girl, who sounds like every other dark skin, long dark haired fucking girl out there, bitching about her mother fucking ex boyfriend, who couldn't write a good song to save her life.
