I’m Ed Sheeran and you can all go to hell

Hello, I am singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran.

When I was asked to appear on HBOs Game of Thrones in a very limited cameo appearance I said sure. Why not? I like the show enough. I wouldnt say Im a huge fan, or even caught up with the most recent episode. But yeah Ill be on it. What could it possibly hurt?

I signed onto Twitter Sunday evening expecting to to see a sea of adoring fans praising my VERY BRIEF appearance as a Lannister soldier. Instead I am greeted with nothing but hate. I mean my God. Youd think I just walked into your homes and shot your dog with a gun.

Jesus Christ some of the tweets I was receiving. You realize I was only on screen for like three minutes, right?

Other musicians have appeared in Game of Thrones, you know. Will Champion from Coldplay, Gary Lightbody from Snow Patrol, hell ALL OF Sigur Ros. Where was the outrage when they showed up in Game of Thrones, huh?

What in Gods name did I ever do to deserve this?

All I wanted to do was provide you ungrateful fucks with a little entertainment and THIS is the thanks I get?

I thought you guys liked me. My shows sell out within hours, Ive won two Grammys, and Shape Of You is the best selling song of the year. I mean, have you heard my music? It’s fucking beautiful. I’m a goddamned treasure. What is it about seeing me in Game of Thrones that suddenly make me the target of your vitriol? Fuck this.

What in Gods name did I ever do to deserve this?

It made sense on paper. Game of Thrones is the most popular show on TV and Im one of the most popular musicians in the world. Why not combine the two? Whos not going to like this?

I thought I did pretty good in the scene. The director liked my delivery. So what the fuck? Was it my performance you didnt like? Was it because I didn’t wear a big silly wig? You knew it was me, who cares? It’s just a wig.

Or was it just because Im a huge pop star and youre all jealous? Huh? Is that it? Jealous of my success I bet. Yeah thats it. I wrote “Thinking Out Loud” when I was like 22. What the fuck have you done?

Also, you think I didn’t tell the director I wanted a wig? You think Im stupid? I didn’t write the goddamned thing. I said to the guy, “You sure you don’t want me in a big wig or something? I mean, this is just my normal hair, this is how I wear it all the time.” And he said, “don’t worry about it, no one will care.” And I believed him!

Whatever. Game of Thrones sucks anyway. It’s just violence and sex and you’re all insane for liking it.

You can all go to hell for all I care.

Best,

Ed Sheeran

P.S. The wig would have been great and I regret not insisting.
