In an interview with The Guardian, Ed Sheeran told the story of a trip to Japan with Justin Bieber where he got drunk and tried to hit a golf ball out of Bieber’s mouth but instead hit him square in the jaw.
“We’d been out to a dive bar. He just drank water and I got hammered,” Sheeran said. “Then we went to a golf course, and he lay on the floor and put a golf ball in his mouth and told me to hit it out of his mouth. I was like, ‘Fuck, I need to aim this properly,’ and I swung. And you know in films when someone gets punched, and you hear that fake sound, like a slap? But in real life when someone gets punched, you hear that dull thud, a bit sickening? I heard a sound like the last one, and saw his security guard looking at me like…”
Sheeran added, “I’d cracked Justin Bieber right in the cheek with a golf club. That was one of those ‘What the fuck?’ moments.”
He said some other stuff in the interview, but who really cares? Thanks for the story Ed. We owe you a drink next time you’re in town.
