Ed Sheeran "Got Booed" As People Are Raging Over His Grammy Win
It might surprise you to learn that people are divided about Ed Sheeran’s victory at the Grammys last night. Surely he’s everyone’s favourite ginger nut? With universally adored songs like Shape of You and Thinking Out Loud, his victory should be celebrated?! However, with artists like Kesha and Lady Gaga missing out, people are a little pissed.
Not only did the singer not turn up to the awards ceremony, it seems like he slept through as evidenced by his post on Instagram the morning after.
Dropped a clanger there Ed!
With Ed being the only male contestant in the solo performance category, for many people his win seemed contradictory to movements like #METOO which was represented at the ceremony with celebs donning white roses. It’s part of the red-carpet activism that is sweeping Hollwood right now.
Some even booed when his name was announced.
Ed Sheeran got booed?
I shouldn't find that funny, but it's hilarious. https://t.co/FYVIeoo3KO

"Ed Sheeran" is a hell of a way to mispronounce "Kesha."

It’s worth mentioning Kesha’s emotionally charged performace of her song Praying. She was joined on stage by Cyndi Lauper, Camila Cabello, Andra Day, Julia Michaels and Bebe Rexha and the Resistance Revival Chorus. Lady Gaga’s performance was also heartfelt as it was in honour for her best friend who lost the battle to cancer. Compare this to Sheeran’s absence and you’ve got yourself a storm on Twitter.
Logic singing about suicde losing to Bruno Mars singing about sex and women and Kesha singing about surviving and moving forward losing to Ed Sheeran singing about the shape of someone's body just goes to show how stupid the Grammys are

Kesha really did go through hell and back to release Praying and get nominated for a Grammy, only to lose to an Ed Sheeran song about how he likes a woman’s body over a Sia sample #GRAMMYs

Ed Sheeran literally SAMPLED Sia’s Cheap Thrills (a song she previously lost a Grammy for), didn’t even have THE RESPECT to attend the ceremony, and FUCKING WON TWO GRAMMYS OVER WAY MORE RESPECTED ARTISTS. What a fucking outrage. What a colossal disappointment.

Naturally, Ed Sheeran wins with a Sia/TLC rip-off over four deserving women who all sang their faces off. #Grammys

Ed’s win has sparked bad feelings towards the music industry, with many people marking this as typical and hating on his songs because they lack creativity and originality.
However, the important thing here is that Ed had a decent night’s sleep.
Looks like he did!
