Superstar Ed Sheeran recently revealed that he has a staggering 60 tattoos all over his body, but he’s now said – albeit with tongue-firmly-in-cheek (we hope!) – that he would consider getting a new piece of body art... of an image of Sir Elton John’s face on a place where the sun doesn’t shine!
Sheeran says he would consider getting such a tattoo because Elton John is always asking him to sit on his face! Asked during an interview if he would rather have a tattoo of Taylor Swift or Elton John on his buttocks, he said: “I reckon Elton's face cause he's always asking me to sit on it. He f***ing does; I'm not even joking.”
Sheeran said recently that he still has to pinch himself over the fact that he’s now mates with Sir Elton John. “There are lots of pinch-me moments in my career, and I think the way you don’t turn yourself insane is to just roll with them and don’t think about them too much. But, obviously, it’s weird being able to call Elton a friend.”
Despite being asked to “sit on” his face, Sheeran is clearly a fan of Elton John. He made a reference in his new song ‘Castle on the Hill’ to Elton John’s classic track ‘Tiny Dancer’. “Well, the Tiny Dancer thing is just... I really like Elton’s 'Madman Across The Water', it’s my favourite Elton album, and I would usually listen to that driving home. But you can't drive at 90 where I live, it's impossible; the roads are too [winding],” he said recently.
