‘I Was A Bit Of A C***’: Ed Sheeran Regets Calling Miley Cyrus A Stripper

Ed Sheeran has admitted that he regrets comments he made about Miley Cyrus acting like a “stripper” at last year’s MTV Video Music Awards.

At the time, the Thinking Out Loud hitmaker slammed the 21-year-old for performing a “stripper’s move” at the VMAs, but on reflection the singer feels he acted a little harshly and insists he would be “f***king livid” if anyone spoke that way about him.

“I was a bit of a c**t. I do feel bad about it as if I’d be f**king livid if someone said that about me,” he told The Sun recently. “My general point was I wanted her to sing the songs so people could see what an amazing artist she is. I just worded it wrong.”

The 23-year-old also revealed that he has forgiven the subject of his song ‘Don’t’, about a previous girlfriend cheating on him with a friend – heavily rumoured to have been about Ellie Goulding going behind his back with One Direction member Niall Horan.

When asked if he is a forgiving person, Ed said: “I guess. I got over the anger the moment I wrote the song. That’s the end of it. I’m grateful I could get a song out of it, to be honest. I don’t feel it’s about anyone any more, I’m not attached to that. The moment you attach someone to a song it becomes more difficult to sing every night.”

In his candid interview with the newspaper, the flame-haired singer/songwriter also defended his good friend Taylor Swift after Olly Murs blasted her for writing songs about her ex-boyfriend Harry Styles. Following his comments, Taylor insisted that some people are “sexist” towards her because they talk about her writing about former lovers but don’t ever mention male singers, like Ed and Bruno Mars, who do the same.

“She’s right, man,” Ed claimed. “She gets a tougher rap than other people. No one talks about Bruno Mars’ or my my lyrics like that.”
