American Award Shows Are Full of 'Resentment and Hatred' - Says Ed Sheeran

Ed Sheeran is not a fan of American award shows. Fresh off of his time at the MTV Video Music Awards -- and his epic performance of his song, "Shivers," -- the 30-year-old British singer told Audacy radio host Julia why he doesn't enjoy attending the U.S. ceremonies.
"The room is filled with resentment and hatred towards everyone else and it’s quite an uncomfortable atmosphere," he explained. "All the artists are sweet people, but they’re, like, surrounded by entourages that want them to win too, so it’s one artist surrounded by 10 people and another artist surrounded by 10 people and everyone is kind of giving each other the side eye."
