This still sounds like a tough life.
Ed Sheeran has been followed by a rumor, or a misunderstanding, that he was homeless, sparked from his book Ed Sheeran: A Visual Journey.
In the released excerpt, the singer said he "didn't have a place to stay" from 2008 to 2010, but that's not exactly what he meant.
Sheeran wanted to let people know what he really meant, and took to the Capital FM airwaves to do it. He explained:
"It's been really taken out of context in press—everyone's saying Ed Sheeran was homeless. I never say that in the book. I went without a bed for some nights, that's it. It's just that I didn't have a place to stay [those nights], so I slept on the Central Line and outside Buckingham Palace. That's just what I did… 2009 I'd been doing it [playing gigs in London] for about four years. I lost my place to live and just started staying at friends' that I met along the way and it was a very fun time I had a lot of fun. I met a lot of people that [and] had a lot of experiences that an 18-year-old probably shouldn't have, and when I didn't have a place I would stand onstage and be like, ‘If anyone has got a couch tonight,' and it would usually work."
Wow! That still sounds like a hard way to live, but that's Ed Sheeran for you! Always finding the best in situations!
And it clearly worked because look at the man it's made him become!
