Ed Sheeran returns to Amway fresh on the heels of winning Artist of the Year at the VMAs

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.
