LONDON, Mar 4: Singer Ed Sheeran says he stayed inside his home for four months as he was not able to deal with the pressure of fame.
The “Castle on the Hill” hitmaker says fame started taking a toll on him and he decided to stay inside his west London home, reported Female First.
“I stayed inside for four months. I just ordered food in and watched movies. I couldn’t just go out and get a pint of milk. I always wanted to maintain normality — being able to go to the pub or go and do a gig.
“I just stopped going out — instead I was ordering takeaways and putting on a lot of weight. I hadn’t got any balance, so I just stayed inside.”
The 26-year-old star says he reluctantly moved to a “fancy” part of the city because he attracted less attention there.
“I think there is a difference between fame and success. Success is playing Wembley Stadium and fame is not being able to go outside. I think they are two very different things.
“I had to move from where I was in London to somewhere else. I never really wanted to live in the fancy part of town, I never really want to be that guy. Then I quickly realised that why everyone lives there is because it’s a sheltered community where you don’t really get bothered.” (PTI)
