Ed Sheeran was denied access to his own Grammys party

Not only that, but it was the fourth year in a row

Ed Sheeran has revealed that he was refused entry to his own Grammys party – for the fourth year in a row.

After performing ‘The Shape Of You’ at the US ceremony at the weekend, he then had to opt for another after-party after not being allowed in to his own.

“That’s actually happened four years in a row, and that’s not just my label’s after-party, that’s just after-parties in general,” he told On Air. “It’s just – do you know what I don’t get… it’s like you walk into those parties and there’s four musicians there and everyone else there are people from LA who didn’t even go to the Grammys and just want a party to go to.

“So I went to Benny Blanco and Diplo’s party and arrived there super-early, and suddenly 2,000 people turned up and I was like, ‘I’m going’.”

Sheeran releases his third album β€˜Γ·β€™ on 3 March.
