Ed Sheeran counts Taylor Swift as a best friend, has several hit records and recently sold out Madison Square Garden in three minutes – but the singer still doubts his popularity. With women, at least.
“I find the whole concept of women screaming at me so odd,” Ed told People magazine at the MTV Video Music Awards. “It’s very flattering, but I don’t think I will ever consider myself to be a sex symbol.”
The 22-year-old says he feels his female fans really just want to take care of him. “If you speak to most women, they want to take me home and mother me rather than take me to bed,” he said. “I just have that impression.”
In spite of rumors that have him romantically linked to Selena Gomez, Ellie Goulding and of course Taylor, Ed insists he is single. As for what he looks for in a girl? “Someone who likes to laugh,” he said.
“And I really like chocolate. Someone who gives me chocolate,” he joked.
