Ed Sheeran – the teddybear of pop – has… well he’s said some things about Miley Cyrus. And how she takes her clothes off and writhes around in rubber undergarments more suited to less-than-continent pensioners. GO ON, ED! SHOW HER WHAT’S UP!
But, actually, it being Ed Sheeran, his version of ‘throwing shade’ is ‘basically a compliment, just said in a slightly sad voice’.
He told the Mirror: “I think she’s got an amazing voice. I just think she’s packaged the wrong way.
“When I first heard Wrecking Ball, I thought it was a brilliant song, but the video distracts too much from it.”
Ed also reckons all the crotch-thrusting and hardware-straddling and finger-lickin’ and Thicke-rubbing that Miley does is bad for the kids who watch it and are encouraged by it i.e. and so: Ed Sheeran thinks children shouldn’t twerk. GO ON, ED! SHOW HER WHAT’S UP!
“I think encouraging young people to twerk might be a bad thing,” he said, politely. “It’s a stripper’s move. If I had a daughter of nine, I wouldn’t want her twerking.” And so ends our dreams of seeing Ed Sheeran, in nude-coloured pants and nothing else, twerking along to Lego House. Thanks for destroying our dreams, Ed Sheeran.
