Ed Sheeran has described award shows as a “horrible” experience and said that he often leaves them “feeling sad”.
Speaking after Sunday’s MTV Awards, the singer revealed that he doesn’t like going to awards shows because they’re “filled with people that want you to fail”.
“The room is filled with resentment and hatred towards everyone else and it’s quite an uncomfortable atmosphere,” he told The Julia Show.
“All the artists are sweet people, but they’re surrounded by entourages that want them to win too, so it’s one artist surrounded by ten people and another artist surrounded by ten people and everyone is kind of giving each other the side-eye,” he added.
Sheeran went on to explain that he much prefers award shows in the UK rather than the US because people are too drunk too care if they win.
“In England, our award shows are just like, everyone gets drunk and no one really cares who wins or loses, it’s just sort of a good night out,” he said.
