OK, OK, we get it. You don’t like Ed Sheeran. Whether you’re still mad at him for donning Lannister crimson for his cameo in Game of Thrones earlier this season – a cameo that was planned out as a surprise for Sheeran fan Maisie Williams, mind you – or you’re just a low, scum-sucking anti-gingerist, your haterade has been noted. Sheeran seems to be the least popular guy ever to have three consecutive platinum albums. And for a guy to accomplish that in a beats-and-feuds-driven pop landscape while his whole thing is writing sensitive, sad-boy songs on an acoustic guitar deserves maybe a little respect, we think. Plus, that video where Sheeran gets drunk with his cat is still pretty funny, and maybe more than a little relatable. Minus the cat, of course.
