Don’t worry, Ed, she’ll grow to like it (Picture: PA/BBC)
Ed Sheeran has taken a knock to his self ego as his young daughter bursts into tears every time he sings songs to her.
The successful singer became a first-time dad last year when his wife,
Cherry Seaborn, welcomed their daughter, Lyra Antarctica.
But Lyra doesn’t seem to share the optimism of Ed’s legions of fans clearly not a Sheeran stan.
During an appearance on BBC Radio 1’s ‘Kids Ask Difficult Questions’
segment, he said: ‘I definitely spent hour and hours in front of the
mirror pretending to be essentially what I am now.
Haven’t we all?
‘Practice makes perfect innit?’ he joked. ‘Now I’ll sing [my new songs] to my daughter who’s not my biggest fan. She just cries.’
However it’s not all bad news – she is more a lover of some of his more classic bops.
Ed shared: ‘I’ve got some she likes. She really likes Shape of You,
the marimba sound is good but she doesn’t like anything loud or anything
And Ed admitted even isn’t always as keen on his own material.
He laughed: ‘Obviously I am a professional performer, obviously I enjoy my job
but there are some songs that … well, I just think all of my songs are
owned by the public aren’t they?
‘Like ‘Thinking Out Loud’ is someone’s first dance song, or The A Team is someone’s uni song.
‘They’re kind of owned by people so I don’t feel like I have the right
to charge people to come to a concert and then be like, “Well, I’m not
gonna play this song that you like.” They pay to come and see the songs,
they should see the songs that they like.
Ed Sheeran performs for Radio 1’s Big Weekend at 2pm on Saturday May 29 on BBC Radio 1.
