Attention, Ed Sheeran fans: you have less than a decade left to enjoy his musical stylings. The singer reveals that he's got a ten-year plan for his career, and at the end of it, he plans to trade in his guitar and piano for diapers and strollers.
Speaking to Parade magazine, Ed explains, " I know this isn’t going to last forever. Now is the time when I’m making my musical statements and being cool and going to parties. But I don’t think I’ll be living this life in 10 years’ time. If I am, please slap me.” Ten years from now, he says, he'll be "back home [in the U.K.], [with a] bunch of kids.” The 23-year-old singer adds, "At 33, I should be starting to settle down.”
As for who he's going to settle down with, Ed does have a girlfriend right now -- she's a chef -- but he seems doomed to forever answer questions about his love life. No, for the millionth time, he's never dated Taylor Swift. "On a professional level, I would have never gone there because I’m not an idiot," he tells the Australian paper The Herald-Sun.
And no, he won't reveal who his song "Don't" -- about a fellow singer who cheated on him with a friend -- is about, even though everyone thinks it's about Ellie Goulding .
"It’s only fair to stay out of that. The song’s there, people can make up their own minds. I think it’d be unfair to point fingers," he tells the
However, Ed must still feel like answering questions, because he's just revealed that "Don't" isn't the only song on the album that's about a celebrity. "Here’s a fact that’s interesting,” he tells The New York Times . “‘Sing’ is about a very, very well-known person. No one knows that, so no one’s being like, ‘Who’s it about?’" Well, now they will, Ed, thanks to you.
