Ed Sheeran doesn’t need a BRIT Award to prove he’s a good songwriter – Music News
Ed Sheeran insists he doesn’t need a BRIT Award to prove he’s a good songwriter.
The 30-year-old megastar has won multiple BRITs over the years and will face Adele in this year’s ceremony at the O2 in London on February 8.
Ahead of the awards show next month, hitmaker “Perfect” – whose nominations include Album of the Year for “=”, Artist of the Year, Song of the Year for “Bad Habits” and the award for best pop / R & B – insisted that while it was “super nice” when he won, it wouldn’t matter if he lost because that doesn’t mean he “did a rotten song “.
According to the Daily Star’s Wired column, Ed said, “The BRIT Awards were all my year was up for: release an album, make a single, then we go to the BRIT Awards and see if we can win.
“‘Shape of You’ was the best-selling song in England that year and she didn’t get it.
“So I’m really in the mindset that I’m going to keep making music that I love and every once in a while when things go like that it’s super cool and I’m in it. super happy, but if i lose i’m cool.
“If I win it’s wonderful, but what I’m saying is if I lost I wouldn’t think, ‘I made a bad song.'”
Meanwhile, Ed recently criticized the US awards shows, saying they were filled with “hate” and had an “uncomfortable atmosphere.”
The singer made the comments after his performance of his song “Shivers” at the MTV Video Music Awards in September.
He said: “The room is filled with resentment and hatred towards everyone and it’s a pretty uncomfortable atmosphere.”
The ‘Castle on the Hill’ hitmaker was nominated for four VMAs, but won none and went on to relate the pressure artists feel to win when surrounded by their management team.
He added: “All the artists are lovely people, but they’re like surrounded by people who want them to win too, so it’s one artist surrounded by ten people and another artist surrounded by ten people and all the world sort of gives itself. the side eye. “
The multi-million-selling pop star also quickly noted that the “horrible atmosphere” is a trend mostly exclusive to American awards shows, as opposed to those in her native UK.
He said, “It has nothing to do with MTV or the show, it’s all the other awards shows. [too.] Billboards, Grammys, AMA. It’s just that a lot of people want other people to fail and I don’t like that.
“In England our awards show is like everyone gets drunk and nobody really cares who wins or loses, it’s just kind of a good night out.”
Ed completed his comments by saying that it is not just him who feels this way about ceremonies in the United States.
He said: “People have the same feeling as I do at these awards shows.
“I’ve talked to people and they say, ‘I just felt really depressed afterwards.’ The atmosphere is just not pleasant. It’s a really, really horrible atmosphere to be in there. I always leave sad and I don’t like it.
