Ed Sheeran admits he's not the best speller in the world, but he does wish more people would spell his own name correctly!
If you recall -- or if you're unaware -- Ed was trending globally after his performance at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards, but not quite the way he was expecting. He tweeted what happened:
The whole world spelled poor Ed's last name wrong! When asked about it by Entertainment Weekly, Ed explained, "It was trending. And I don't know. I'm sure people still get Justin Bieber wrong," he said sheepishly. "I know I do. I spell it B-E-I, and I know it's B-I-E."

Ed also pointed out that he felt like he didn't fit in at the ceremony, though it wasn't entirely his fault -- it was his outfit's! He explained, "I was told it was casual, and I turned up in a jumper." (That's a sweater -- not the jumpers you're thinking of in the US!) "Everyone was in a suit, and I was like, 'Well, this sucks!' I had a good time at the after-party. I just don't really fit in, and I was the only British guy there as well."

One place Ed does fit in? On tour with Taylor Swift, where he says he's picked up a few new fans. And good thing, too, he said -- "Otherwise it would have been a very long tour!"
