1. Ed Sheeran has openly admitted he once tried ecstasy and has now revealed all about the experience.
The singer released his new album, X (Multiply), earlier this week. And one of the tracks is called “Bloodstream” – about a particular experimental trip he once had to party island Ibiza.
2. The singer was so high he even fell in love with a beanbag during the incident. Yep, really!
3. In an interview with Spotify, Sheeran said:
I don’t know how much I can tell you about that. I’m not a massive drug-taker, but that song was written after an experience in Ibiza and it’s basically about all the feelings that I got from that time…
“It was weird, because I haven’t taken it since, it was literally just a one-time thing. It was a wedding, and I was having a mojito, and my mate was like, ‘Do you want to try it, it tastes really bad if you put it in your mouth but I’ll just put it in your drink and it’ll be fine’. It was MDMA and I fell in love with a beanbag.
“I literally got home and bought six beanbags! During it all I felt a lot of things: I felt anxiety, I felt love, I felt warm, I felt a bit weird. And afterwards, you spend all day just thinking about what you’ve been through. So, I’ve only done it once and I’ve told my mum and dad about it, but I did actually go through two months where I’d been such a good boy for such a long time that I went and tried everything.”
