Ed Sheeran: "I was bullied for being a weird kid"
Ed Sheeran has revealed that he was the victim of bullying when he was a child.
The singer-songwriter has become one of the biggest names in music, but it seems his upbringing and schooling was at times less than enjoyable.
Speaking to Take 40, Sheeran said that he was picked on by his peers due to his hair and appearance. The 'A Team' star said:
"I think everyone goes through a bit of bullying at school. Of course you get picked on for certain things, but I think it ends up being a positive. I was quite a weird kid when I was little, I wore big glasses, had hearing problems, had a stutter and I had ginger hair."
He continued: "I am now a successful musician and I have nothing to complain about. So I have come out the other end and blossomed...When I went home and went to the pub and saw the people who used to be d***s at school, it's kind of depressing. They not only haven't done anything but they don't know that there is anything out there. They are so stuck in their little world. So I feel sad for them - they are kind of being bullied by life."
