Yesterday (January 29), Ed Sheeran received the news that he’d won two Grammy awards.
The singer – who wasn’t in attendance at Sunday’s ceremony – took home the awards for Best Pop Solo Performance for ‘Shape of You’ and Best Pop Vocal Album for ‘÷’, but revealed he was actually asleep for the announcement.
He took to Instagram to thank everyone for his wins, posting a photo of his ginger and white cat laying on its back on the floor.
“Woke up to the news I won two Grammys last night. Thank you!” he wrote.
“This little fluff-ball is doing a bit of a celebratory dance, lots of love to everyone.”
However, while his cat may have been overjoyed with the news, many others weren’t.
The singer was booed on the night for beating an otherwise all-female shortlist for Best Pop Solo Performance, which consisted of Kesha, Kelly Clarkson, Lady Gaga and Pink.
Many fans took to Twitter to voice their frustration, saying the award should have gone to Kesha.
“Still confused as to how Ed Sheeran won best pop song over Kesha,” wrote one user. “She literally made a song about overcoming sexual abuse.”
Pink, Katy Perry and Charli XCX led the charge of criticism against the Recording Academy President for telling women to “step up” after the lack of female winners at the awards.
Meanwhile, earlier today Sheeran was announced as one of the headliners for the BBC’s The Biggest Weekend, dubbed the ‘Glastonbury replacement’, while the festival is on its fallow year.
