In an interview with The guardian, Ed Sheeran recounted one time he got really, really drunk.
This wouldn’t normally be considered a usually noteworthy event but the story got better when he included his mate Justin Bieber in the tale.
The recount ended with Sheeran hitting Bieber in the face with a golf club.
“We were in Japan,” Sheeran started.
“We’d been out to a dive bar. He just drank water and I got hammered.
“Then we went to a golf course and he lay on the floor and put a golf ball in his mouth and told me to hit it out of his mouth. I was like, ‘f**k, I need to aim this properly,’ and I swung.”
“And you know in films when someone gets punched, and you hear that fake sound, like a slap? But in real life when someone gets punched, you hear that dull thud; a bit sickening?
“I heard a sound like the last one and saw his security guard looking at me … I’d cracked Justin Bieber right in the cheek with a golf club.
“That was one of those, ‘what the f**k?’ moments,” explained Sheeran.
I’m sure we all have drunk tales like this to tell but it’s nice to know even the most famous can still get a wee bit messy.
