During the interview, he explained that he’d never felt “hugely masculine,” and wasn’t into stereotypically masculine things like cars.

“I have a definite feminine side, to the point that when I was a kid I thought I was gay for a bit,” he said.

“I definitely have a big feminine side. I love musical theatre, I love pop music, I love Britney Spears. My masculine side probably stops at drinking beer and watching football,” he continued.

He also revealed he prefers the women’s league: “I watched it and I was like, ‘I don’t know why I watch male football, this is much better.’”

“I am not a car guy. I like a nice car, but I’m not a car guy,” he said.

“But then, my wife is super pro-women and femininity. And so, as soon as we started dating, my life shifted to that. She plays in a female hockey team. We hang out with all the team. It’s very much women empowerment.”

Ed Sheeran also opened up about the special meaning behind his = album cover. Find out what it is!
