Ed Sheeran has a new book coming out…
He’s going above and beyond and revealing a lot of info about himself.
He also talks about what it’s like to be a struggling musician.
According to Buzzfeed.com
The singer revealed he slept rough for two and a half years before becoming the superstar he is today in his new book, Ed Sheeran: A Visual Journey. In an excerpt, published by the Daily Mail, he writes:
“I didn’t have anywhere to live for much of 2008 and the whole of 2009 and 2010, but somehow I made it work. I knew where I could get a bed at a certain time of night and I knew who I could call at any time to get a floor to sleep on. Being sociable helped. Drinking helped.”
He spent much of his time crashing on friends’ sofas rather than on the streets. Although he said he spent a couple of nights sleeping outside Queen Elizabeth II’s residence.
“There was an arch outside Buckingham Palace that has A heating duct and I spent A couple of nights there. That’s where I wrote the song ‘Homeless’ and the lines ‘It’s not a homeless night for me, I’m just home less than I’d like to be.”
