With his new album “X” due for release in the next few weeks, the revealed track list made fans squirm with excitement.
But “Sing” isn’t the only song getting some recognition.
The song “Don’t” has been stirring fans’ curiosity about what might have inspired its lyrics.
More provocative than any other lyrics he’s ever put to a song, “Don’t” seems to stray a bit from the redheaded hitmaker’s style.
But the provocativeness isn’t the only thing that’s making conversation.
“The story in ‘Don’t’ is 100 percent true. I could have gotten nastier – there was more shit that I didn’t put in. I was seeing someone for a bit of a time,” Sheeran told Billboard Magazine“and then they ended up physically involved with one of my friends in the same hotel that we were staying in, while I was downstairs.”
The song’s lyrics completely reflects his experience.
“I never saw him as a threat/Till you disappeared with him to have sex” and later “Don’t F—k with my love” shows fans that Sheeran was really hurt.
So who was the girl who betrayed this English heartthrob?
Hollywood Life tells us that the femme fatale may have been Ellie Goulding and the “friend” she fooled around with was Niall Horan from one direction.
“If you date a songwriter, be prepared to have songs written about you,” Sheeran said “And if you do f—ed up things, you’ll get a horrible song.”
Let’s hope that whoever the pain inflicting girl was or what Sheeran’s best friend Taylor Swift would say the girl whose “better known for the things that she does on the mattress” learned her lesson.
