Ed Sheeran might get a tattoo of Elton John on his arse

Singer says it's 'weird being able to call Elton a friend'

Ed Sheeran has joked that he might get a tattoo of Elton John on his arse.

The British singer, who releases new album ‘÷’ in March, recently spoke to BeBox Music when asked whether he would rather have a rear tattoo of Taylor Swift or Elton.

Sheeran replied: “I reckon Elton’s face because he’s always asking me to sit on it. He fucking does; I’m not even joking”.

Recently speaking about his friendship with Elton John, Sheeran said: “There are lots of pinch-me moments in my career, and I think the way you don’t turn yourself insane is to just roll with them and don’t think about them too much. But, obviously, it’s weird being able to call Elton a friend.”
