I admit that I can’t see the appeal in ginger nebbish Ed Sheeran’s music — I mean, it’s not horrible in the way that, say, Taylor Swift’s music most certainly is, but I find it… pleasant, yet unremarkable.
My opinion, though, doesn’t matter: the little bugger has made more hit records and more money than he can burn with a flamethrower, and clearly, his music has touched a lot of people despite his looking like Third Dweeb From The Left in a Harry Potter movie, so I have to give him that.
What gives me the giggles, however, is that when he studied music at college, he failed.
It says a lot about him that he hasn’t bought out the college, fired the entire faculty and burned all the buildings to the ground. I guess that being a zillionaire is its own revenge.
