Growing up with ginger hair, glasses and a stutter in a quiet town, Ed Sheeran was, on the face of it, an unlikely candidate to be a pop superstar.
He didn’t have such a good time with the local bullies, either.
But now the award-winning singer and songwriter says the name-calling he suffered was the making of him.
Sheeran said: ‘ I think everyone goes through a bit of bullying at school. Of course you get picked on for certain things, but I think it ends up being a positive.
‘I was quite a weird kid when I was little, I wore big glasses, had hearing problems, had a stutter and I had ginger hair, but I am now a successful musician and I have nothing to complain about.
‘So I have come out the other end and blossomed.’
He said: ‘When I went home and went to the pub and saw the people who used to be d**** at school, it’s kind of depressing.
‘They not only haven’t done anything, but they don’t know that there is anything out there.
‘They are so stuck in their little world. So I feel sad for them – they are kind of being bullied by life.’
