Am Happy With Fans Validation, Ed Sheeran Addresses Grammy Snub
Ed Sheeran finally has some words for his fans all over the world who are still upset that he was not nominated for the biggest categories for the 2018 Grammys.
The British pop star was only nominated for two categories–the Best Pop Vocal Album for his album, ÷ (Divide), and Best Pop Solo Performance for his song Shape of You. Many of his fans, critics and music websites had expected that he would get far more nods especially for the Album of the Year or Songs of the Year because they feel he dropped one of the best albums of 2017.
Speaking with Ellen DeGeneres’ YouTube series Ellen’s Show Me More Show, posted online Friday, the British singer said he took the snubs in stride.
“My outlook on it is like, some years you have your year and some years you don’t have your year, and maybe this year wasn’t my year,” the singer said.
Sheeran continued, saying that his major wins this year comes from his songs/album charting all over the world and being a favourite for many people.
“...that’s the point, that’s where you win,” he said. “That’s where the validation comes from, where you actually see people—genuine people—enjoying the songs. I’d rather have, like, a lifetime of people coming up to me and saying, like, ‘This song affects me in this way, in a positive way,’ and like, ‘This song is my wedding song,’ ‘This song was my first kiss,’ than anything else. I think that’s where the validation comes.”
The singer also spoke on working with Beyonce on the new remix of his single “Perfect” which was released yesterday, saying that the song was about his girlfriend of almost three years and former high school pal, Cherry Seaborn.
