Ed Sheeran, Drama Queen, Says He’ll Quit If He Loses Suit But He’s Been Here Before with “Shape of You”– And Settled! (Listen)


Why is Ed Sheeran such a drama queen?

On the stand today he declared if he lost his lawsuit over the song, “Thinking Out Loud” he’d quit his career.

LOL. Ed, win or lose, “Thinking of You” sounds a lot like Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get it On.” So let’s get a grip.

Sheen played his guitar for the jury today and said “Thinking” sounded more like a Van Morrison song. So that makes it so much better!

Sheeran should have just settled with Ed Townsend and Marvin Gaye’s estates. As I wrote last week, the singer songwriter has been sued before, settled, and so on. He had to add the songwriters of TLC’s “No Scrubs” to “Shape of You” because it was too similar to ignore.
