'Pushy' mum asked me to be her 11-yr-old daughter's first kiss: Sheeran

Ed Sheeran was asked to be a fan's first kiss - by her mother.

The 'Sing' hitmaker was left slightly disturbed when the "pushy" mum of a female fan asked him to be her daughter's first kiss on the lips, but Ed swiftly declined as the fan was a little too young.

He recalled: "My fans are actually pretty normal. I don't really get weird ones. It's usually the mums that are quite intense and pushy. One asked me if I would, 'be my daughter's first kiss'. She was 11. It

was really weird."

Ed is currently celebrating the success of his second album, 'x', which recently topped the UK album chart but the crooner doesn't feel fame has changed him too much.

He explained to We Love Pop magazine: "I'm just more comfortable now. I don't have to worry if I can pay for a train ticket to the studio or if I'm having a burger and chips or just chips at night. It's easier."

The 23-year-old star is also not worried about ex-girlfriends realising he's singing about them in his autobiographical music.

He shrugged: "That's the worry being a songwriter and dating a songwriter - that's going to happen. It's one of the hazards of the job."
