Ed Sheeran Burst His Eardrum While Doing THIS & Now He Has To Get Surgery!

| Filed under: Music MinuteEd SheeranHealthInjurySurgery

Ed Sheeran's eardrum

Turns out Ed Sheeran is quite the daredevil.

In a recent interview with Australia's Nova radio as he completes the final leg of his world tour, the 24-year-old musician revealed that he will have to undergo surgery on a damaged eardrum at the beginning of the new year.

How did he burst his eardrum, you might ask?

The Photograph singer revealed that he was injured while vacationing in Spain earlier this year:

"I have to have an operation in January on my ear because I stupidly jumped off a yacht really high up and smashed it. I landed wrong, and it burst my eardrum so I have to go and get a graft, which means I'm not allowed to fly for a while, so it's kind of good, it means I have to stay at home."

Ouch!

It might not be the best circumstances, but we're sure this is a good excuse to relax after being on the road for so long!

He's been so busy traveling, the Brit didn't even notice how bad the injury was until he got back into water:

"It's the most painful thing having a hole in your eardrum and having water go in."

Yiiiikes! Our ears hurt just thinking out loud about it.

His music doesn't seem to be changed by the mishap (praise) — but we're sure it'll be a relief to start off the year injury-free!

Ed Sheeran is stepping onto the big screen!

On Monday, the British crooner chose the best way to reveal that he would be making a cameo in the upcoming film Bridget Jones's Baby!

He shared a picture on set of the third installment of the classic romantic comedy series — with Renee Zellweger herself!

Teddy wrote in the caption:

"Spent the day being an actor in the new Bridget Jones movie. Loved it, you're gonna love it too. #bridgetjones and#bridgetjonesbaby"

AH-Mazing! Of course, this won't be the first time Ed has tried his luck in acting!

Sheeran has played as himself before on shows like Undateable, and he portrayed a creepy character earlier this year on Kurt Sutter's medieval drama The Bastard Executioner!

We can't wait to see the musician on the big screen when Bridget Jones's Baby hits theaters September 16, 2016!
