Ed Sheeran is an unlikely superstar, perhaps, but undeniably one for sure! Maybe his enduring fame comes from the fact that he always done everything himself, and was never part of a manufactured pop act with a limited shelf-life.
As a byproduct of his profession, he frequently appears not only in public, but in front of huge crowds of screaming fans. Yet, somehow, he has largely managed to avoid the limelight. He has not been involved with any salacious gossip, he quietly married a childhood friend who retains her anonymity, and he lives a peaceful life.
