Ed Sheeran Refused Entry Into The Grammys After Party For The Fourth Year Running
As much as I had to pretend that I know a lot about modern music and stuff to get this job, I absolutely don’t. One of the top played songs on my phone is a part of the score from The Crown (which is weird, I know) and, even weirder, She Blinded Me With Science by Thomas Dolby – something I’m pretty sure I downloaded ironically.
Nevertheless, I like Ed Sheeran. As a person, anyway. That’s why it’s sort of upsetting to hear that, once again, he’s been refused entry to the Grammys After Party. Yes, that’s four years running now.
Seriously it doesn’t make any sense. He’s one of music’s biggest faces at the moment and it’s not like he’s not recognisable. He even performed at the ceremony. Literally no excuse.
Apparently the party was full, and although you’d think they could squeeze an Ed Sheeran in, apparently they couldn’t. Speaking on air with Ryan Seacrest, he didn’t sound happy about it, saying:
“That’s actually happened four years in a row. And that’s not just my label’s after-party. That’s just after-parties in general.
You know what I don’t get? When you walk into those parties, there’s probably four musicians there and everyone else is just people from LA, who didn’t go to the Grammys and probably just want a party to go to.“
In the end he went to Diplo and Benny Blanco’s party in Hollywood Hills and, though he liked it at first, things took a turn that he wasn’t a fan of…
“I arrived there super early and I was like, ‘This is really cool! No-one’s here!’ And then suddenly 2,000 people turned up and I was like, ‘I’m going’.”
Which is totally fair enough.
Poor Ed. Poor, poor Ed Sheeran.
