Ed Sheeran is a confirmed gift-giver. The singer/songwriter appreciates his fellow celebrities so much in fact, that he's given multiple friends the surprise of a penis statute. You read that correctly.
According to singer, Anne-Marie she was one of the first to receive a phallic offering after Sheeran gifted her "the biggest dildo available" for her birthday.
Sheeran didn't stop there. Fellow singer/songwriter, Sir Elton John was also a victim- I mean recipient of a phallic figure. For Elton's 74th birthday, Ed sent him a giant marble penis. Elton stated, "I don’t know if that’s because I’ve always been a prick or what. It’s really big, it’s beautifully made." Unfortunately Elton and his husband could not display the sculpture as they have two younger kids.
The latest of Sheeran's pals to receive a massive trophy was none other than singer/songwriter Sam Smith. Smith told the tale on The Kelly Clarkson Show.
This is clearly some sort of prank or fetish that Ed Sheeran takes quite a bit of joy in. Other victims include Courteney Cox, whom he pranked by ordering an S&M gimp mask on Amazon and having it delivered to her door. As well as radio hosts (and pretty much anyone who asks for a gift at this point.)
Be careful what you wish for, especially if you're friends with Ed Sheeran.
