Pop star Ed: I used to sing for a pint

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

CHART topper Ed Sheeran has ad­mit­ted he used to get paid in BEER!

The grog wage even­tu­ally proved too much for the singer, as all that booze in­evitably made him FAT.

The 23-year-old ex­plains in new book A Visual Jour­ney: “I started do­ing open-mic gigs in pubs across the cap­i­tal, like Hol­born’s The Ivy House.

“I was paid in beer, so I got very fat.”

Mean­while the Think­ing Out Loud war­bler ad­mits he re­fuses to an­swer anony­mous calls on his mo­bile phone hav­ing been plagued by DEATH threats.

He added: “Erm…I got quite a few death threats early on. That’s why.

“It’s not a great way to start the morn­ing. It hap­pened just after it blew up for me, around June 2011. Ev­ery­thing went men­tal.”
