Ed Sheeran denies ‘Little Things’ was written about Harry Styles’ penis

Singer says One Direction's Harry Styles 'definitely hasn’t got a little thing'

Ed Sheeran has denied that his song ‘Little Things’ was written about the size of Harry Styles’ penis.

During an interview with New Zealand’s ZM Online, Sheeran was asked about the inspiration for the track and whether it related to Styles in any way. He replied, “He definitely hasn’t got a little thing, so no, I did not write Little Things about little things.”

Sheeran is currently on tour in New Zealand. As reported yesterday (April 14), the singer-songwriter made a surprise visit to a fan suffering from cancer in hospital.


Sheeran visited Jess Wright who was diagnosed with leukaemia shortly after buying tickets to his gig in Auckland and was deemed too sick to attend the show over the weekend.

Sheeran also recently made a surprise appearance at The Redcliffs primary school in New Zealand.

The school won a competition to have the singer perform in their school hall. Sheeran played two songs, ‘Thinking Out Loud’ and ‘I See Fire’ before taking part in a Q&A session with the children and staying behind to take pictures with every child there.

To celebrate their win and Sheeran’s visit, The Redcliffs School decided to change their name to ‘Edcliffs School’ for two weeks.

No stranger to surprise visits, Sheeran recently performed at an Australian couples’ wedding reception, performing the song ‘Thinking Out Loud’ for their first dance as a married pair.

He also appeared on long-running US children’s show Sesame Street.
