‘I don’t believe artists don’t care about success’ – Ed Sheeran


British singer Ed Sheeran has shared his opinion on some of his colleagues who claim that they are in the music industry for passion and not in pursuit of success.

Appearing on a recent episode of Therapuss With Jake Shane, the ‘Thinking Out Loud’ hitmaker categorically stated that he doesn’t believe such claims.

According to him, if those artists truly don’t care about success, they wouldn’t release their music commercially or sign with record labels.

The multiple Grammy-winning singer argued that all artists want to be successful and famous, emphasising that those who say they don’t care about success only say that because it “sounds cool.”

Sheeran added that anyone in the pop scene “definitely cares” about success.

He said: “I don’t believe any artist that says they don’t, otherwise, you wouldn’t release music because you’d be like, ‘If I don’t care what people think, then why would I even put it out?’ You’d just sort of make the music and be like, ‘Well, that’s made me feel good.’

“All artists, we want to be loved. That’s why we are on stage. And that’s why you sign to a record company, to go, ‘I would like people to hear the music that I’m making.’ I don’t really subscribe to this whole, like, not caring thing. That’s all a kind of ruse, because it sounds cool to say but every artist wants people to like their music.

“It really pisses me off when people are like, ‘Oh I don’t care how it does.’ I’m like, ‘F*cking shut up! You do! Everyone does.’ Anyone in the pop game definitely cares.”
