Songwriting superstar takes to Twitter to clarify rumours he will be calling it a day when his current tour ends
The rumours came off the back of him cementing his place as the songwriter of 2017 – following his coup of the top 10 of the UK Singles Chart – but it seems that Ed Sheeran has no plans to retire from music just yet.
A source had been quoted as saying: “Ed has pretty much achieved everything there is to achieve in music. He absolutely loves what he does and is riding the wave of his success at the moment, but at the same time he wants a more normal life.”
However, Sheeran took to Twitter yesterday (24 April) to poo-poo suggestions that he would be hanging up his guitar strap after finishing his current tour. He tweeted, “Das Bollocks” in response to MTV UK’s tweet from the previous day, which asked: “Is Ed Sheeran really quitting music forever??”
Sheeran is one of the three headline artists at this year’s Glastonbury festival, alongside Radiohead and Foo Fighters.
