This Is Why Ed Sheeran Was Seriously Worried Over Steamy Emails From Elton John

Ed Sheeran was reportedly seriously concerned that he wouldn't be allowed into the US because of a series of weird pornographic emails from Elton John in his inbox. 

The Thinking Out Loud singer has revealed that his close friend Elton regularly forwards him on bizarre pornographic video content as a joke, but things turned serious when Ed was going to through customs at the airport.

Ed Sheeran has said he receives weekly calls from the music legend

Speaking backstage at The 60th Anniversary Ivor Novello Awards in London this week, Ed said: “ I got to customs in New York once and I had 17 new emails from him and I was like, ‘Something must be important.’

"They were all video attachments, and I downloaded the first one, and yeah – it was weird. Really, really weird.

"I was at customs and it’s pretty hard to get in to America anyway without those sort of videos. I was like s**t as I tried to delete them.”

Ed was named Songwriter of the Year at the awards show. 

And apparently this wasn't a one off as Ed went on to say: “It happens quite a lot.

"It’s not him (Elton) that sends them though, it’s someone who is a big editor of a newspaper over here, so he just forwards them on to me.”

We love this friendship more and more every day.
