Ed: I don't care about the critics

Ed Sheeran is not bothered about critics who didn't like his recent album.

The singer-songwriter, who got to No 3 in the singles charts with The A Team in June this year, said: "Everything I do is for my fans. I don't make music for the critics.

"They didn't spend a tenner on my album, they haven't come to my shows for the past few years. A lot of those guys probably listened to my album once or twice and that was that, and it shows when they make assumptions about the meaning of some my lyrics."

He went on: "I don't care what they think. If a fan came up to me and said they didn't like what I'd done, then it would hit me and I'd take it in and think about it.

"Obviously not everyone is going to like what I do, but things seem to going pretty well so far."

Ed has won the support of the UK's grime and hip hop community, with acts such as Wretch 32, Devlin, Wiley, Tinie Tempah and scene kingpin Labrinth happy to sing his praises.

He said: "I think if you take away genre barriers, good music is good music. If you're a bad lyricist, I think someone who only listens to acoustic music would recognise that in hip hop just as much as someone from the grime scene would recognise a bad singer-songwriter.

"I think it's a situation where musical talent recognises other musical talent."
