As if Princess Beatrice accidentally slicing Ed Sheeran's face with a sword while mock-knighting James Blunt wasn't enough for you, the popstar has shared another celebrity tale.
In an interview with The Guardian the singer, who has been busy promoting his third album ÷, discusses adjusting to his global success and why 2017 is going to be his year. He also recalls the time when he got "hammered" in a bar in Japan with Justin Bieber. It doesn't end well.
"He just drank water and I got hammered," Sheeran explained. "Then we went to a golf course, and he lay on the floor and put a golf ball in his mouth and told me to hit it out of his mouth. I was like, 'Fuck, I need to aim this properly,' and I swung. And you know in films when someone gets punched, and you hear that fake sound, like a slap? But in real life when someone gets punched, you hear that dull thud, a bit sickening? I heard a sound like the last one, and saw his security guard looking at me like... I'd cracked Justin Bieber right in the cheek with a golf club. That was one of those 'What the fuck?' moments."
Maybe Ed should stick to getting smashed with Russell Crowe instead.
