Once, Ed Sheeran Drunkenly Used Justin Bieber’s Face as a Golf Tee
Sheeran retold the story about how he and Bieber went to a dive bar together in Japan.
“He just drank water and I got hammered,” Sheeran explained. “Then we went to a golf course, and he lays 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.”
The following events were most unfortunate for Bieber’s boyish visage.
“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?” Sheeran said. “I heard a sound like the last one, and saw his security guard looking at me like, I’d cracked Justin Bieber right in the cheek with a golf club.”
Sheeran also opened up about how his newfound wealth has caused some of his friends to view him as an ATM rather than a person. He recalled a time when he and his friends went to a club and ran up a large bill at the bar.
“I sorted it at the end of the night, then left. I got a call the next morning from the bar: ‘Oh, your mates came back later and they ran up another 600-quid bill and they just said to charge it to you,'” said Sheeran. “I know that’s a proper first-world problem, but … you just see people you’re close to seeing you as a cash machine rather than a mate, like if they hang around you they’ll get stuff from you. Whereas my mates back in Suffolk, as soon as we get to the pub they’ll buy me a drink. Small things like that, rather than going out at the end of the night and kind of sneaking off.”
