Ed Sheeran Wasn't Comparing Himself To Adele, He Was Aiming For Her Success

Ed Sheeran has learned his lesson – don’t mention Adele in any of his interviews.

Earlier this year, the “Galway Girl” singer spoke about the Grammy-winning artist in an interview with GQ, saying that she was the “only person I need to sell more records than.”

The quote however, was taken in the wrong way, and fans all over were calling him out over it.

“I feel like me saying this, a lot of people were like, ‘That’s such an arrogant thing to say,’” Ed tries to clarify in a new interview with Megyn Kelly, which will air this weekend.

He adds, “I think you need to choose someone that’s at the top of their game. Like, I probably won’t sell 20 million records. And I probably won’t ever be as big as Adele. But if you don’t aim for the top of the mountain, how are you ever gonna get halfway?”

“The problem is, my point never comes across with that. That quote is now just ‘I want to be bigger than Adele.’ The word Adele is just something that no one should f— with, basically.

Ed adds, “If you put that in any sentence, prepare to be shut down.”

Watch the video below, and check out his full interview on NBC’s Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly on Sunday, July 9th @ 7PM ET/PT.
