Ed Sheeran was told he'd never be a star unless he dyed his trademark ginger locks

SUPERSTAR Ed Sheeran was told he would not be a star unless he dyed his ginger locks black.

Ed, 29, was also ordered to ditch an effects pedal he uses on stage — a key component of his live performances.

Manager Stuart Camp, who has helped guide Ed’s rise, made the claim about an unnamed firm he took over from in 2011.

Stuart said: “The other management ac­tually resigned from him because they said he wasn’t going anywhere.

“He had to drop the looping pedal, dye his hair black and give up the rapping.”

Ed is now one of the best-selling artists of all time but is currently taking a break.

But Stuart told podcast Straight Up: “We’ve started recording now. We’ll probably put a record out this time next year.

“I’m looking at a piece of paper that actually has the tracklisting for the album after the next one on it.

“He’s always one or two albums ahead.”


PRINCESS Beatrice did cut Ed’s face with a sword at a 2016 do, Stuart confirmed.

Beatrice, 32, was pretending to knight singer James Blunt. She caught Ed’s face not realising he was behind her.
