Ed Sheeran admits he used to drink a lot of alcohol before he found fame.
Ed Sheeran ''used to drink heavily''.
The 23-year-old singer, who shot to fame in 2011, admits he would guzzle down booze on a daily basis when he was trying to establish himself as a music artist, but stopped as soon as he was signed.
Speaking to The Sun newspaper's Fabulous magazine, he said: ''I used to drink. Heavily. I came up in pubs and clubs, so you get paid in alcohol, and, as soon as I signed a record deal, I thought, 'I just need to focus on this year. I can't have anything f**k it up.' ''
However, the 'Lego House' hitmaker struck up his bad drinking habits again when his album '+' sold a million copies in 2011.
He explained: ''The day I started drinking again was the day the album sold a million copies and I was like, 'Right, done. Back to normality.'''
Despite his love of an alcohol beverage from time-to-time, Ed admits you won't find him swaying onto the drugs scene, like many other celebrities, any time soon.
He said: ''I only see cocaine from time to time. If you want to find it, you can, but it's not in my circle.''
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
