Calling all so-called un-popular kids, this one’s for you — or really for anyone, but especially you. Singer Ed Sheeran admits that being the “underdog” is what made both he and Taylor Swift the successes they are now. Yes, it’s true, and something we should all remember.
We can’t believe there was a time that Sheeran wasn’t popular, but knowing his past has made him so strong today, is awesome.
While in some cases taking it too far is a bad thing, but in the British singer and his BFF’s case, it helped them become mega stars.
“She wants to be the biggest female artist in the world and I want to be the biggest male artist in the world,” he explained. “It also comes from always being told that you can’t do something and being like, ‘F**k you. I can.'”
Despite the fact that feeling like you don’t fit in stinks, we are so happy Sheeran and Swift turned that into a beyond successful music career — and one of our favorite Hollywood friendships.
The 25-year-old singer also opened up about overcoming the ginger stigma, or people thinking that just because of his red hair he couldn’t be attractive.
