Ed Sheeran is back on social media
He’s back again! On Tuesday, Ed Sheeran made a comeback on social media with a video on Instagram.
I know I haven’t been very active on social media or with my online fan base over the last couple of years, Sheeran acknowledged in the selfie video before breaking into a sweet whisper. “ And it’s probable that the posts on this account have become repetitive. And I apologize; I’m to blame.
“Umm, the reason I’m creating this video is, just being honest, I’ve had some stormy things occurring in my personal life, so I just didn’t feel like being online and pretending to be someone I’m not when I wasn’t feeling like that,” he said back at full intensity.
The British music singer assured his fans that “things are looking up” and that “strange she- is going to start getting uploaded” on his Instagram account now that he is “back online.” He then jokes, “I’ve made this video like fifty times, I’m not producing another one,” before concluding.
Sheeran has chosen not to use Twitter as well, joining several other well-known musicians who have done so. Instead, he has delegated control of his “Ed Sheeran HQ” account on the app to his management group.
The musician briefly returned to Instagram in late 2022 to celebrate his song “Shivers” surpassing the billion-stream milestone on Spotify. He also shared a photo of the windy outside set of an unnamed music video that anticipates the release of his follow-up to 2021’s = (Equals), which is expected this year.
