Ed Sheeran reveals he doesn’t have a phone

Ed Sheeran’s “bad habits” do not include his mobile phone addiction.

The 33-year-old British singer, who is one of the world’s best-selling musicians, revealed in a new interview that he hasn’t used an iPhone for a full nine years.

Talking about the Therapuss with Jake Shane In the podcast, Sheeran made the confession after offering to exchange emails with the show’s host.

“I don’t have a number,” Sheeran said.

“I’m not kidding. I haven’t had a phone since 2015.”

The Grammy winner, who has two young children with wife Cherry Seaborn, said he made the decision to throw away his phone after being bombarded with text messages following his breakthrough.

“I think I’ve had the same number since I was 15,” Sheeran continued.

“And I became famous and had 10,000 contacts in my phone who were texting me all the time. And I was constantly in touch with a lot of people.

“I feel like with phones everyone expects you to answer, and if you don’t answer, it’s rude.

“Sometimes you’re just not in the mood to respond, you’re busy or doing whatever. But then you respond, then they respond back… and suddenly you’re in 40 conversations at once.”

In addition, Sheeran felt that he was “losing interaction with real life.”

“So I separated from [my phone]”I have an iPad and have switched everything to email, which I respond to once a week,” he said.

“I have something that allows me to record video footage that then appears on social media, but it’s not like an active working phone.”

The Perfect The singer has nearly 50 million followers on Instagram, which is apparently managed by members of his team.

Meanwhile, the megastar has a busy touring schedule over the next few months, which will see him perform at a number of festivals across Europe until September.
