Ed Sheeran says he “thought he was a bit gay”; Love musical theater, pop music, Britney
Ed Sheeran “thought [he] was a little gay ”during his childhood.
The 30-year-old pop star has revealed he questioned his sexuality because he loved musicals and Britney Spears songs as a child.
He shared, “I have a definite feminine side to it, so much so that when I was a kid I thought I was a little bit gay.
“I definitely have a big feminine side. I love musical theater, I love pop music, I love Britney Spears.
“My masculine side probably stops drinking beer and watching football.”
The “Perfect” hitmaker – who is an Ipswich Town fan – actually prefers women’s football to men’s football.
And Ed revealed he converted to women’s football after the birth of his daughter, Lyra, in August of last year.
He told the ‘Man Man Man’ podcast: “I watched it and thought to myself, ‘I don’t know why I watch men’s football, it’s so much better.’
“Anyway, I’m not an overly masculine person. I’m not a car guy. I like a nice car, but I’m not a car guy.
Ed admits that his wife, Cherry Seaborn, has had a huge impact on the way he views life.
He explained, “My wife is super pro-women and femininity.
“As soon as we started dating, my life just turned upside down.”
Meanwhile, Ed recently revealed that he is “cool with everyone” in the music industry.
The singer is often praised for being one of the friendliest people in the business, but Ed insists most of his closest friends are from his childhood.
Ed – who lives in Suffolk, England – shared: “I get along with pretty much everyone, but in terms of very close personal relationships, like who I would invite over to my house for dinner or to hang out with. my girl, I can count them on my fingers.
“I’m cool with everyone. I’ll be spending nights with lots of people, but a lot of other people in the industry that I meet are the same – their closest friends are the people they’ve known for years, the people they grew up with.
