Ed Sheeran Couch Surfed With Celebs Before He Was Famous And The Stories Are Amazing

So obviously this is Ed Sheeran, the singer-songwriter extraordinaire you may know from his jamz such as “Thinking Out Loud” and “Shape of You.”

But we may have never been blessed with those songs had it not been for Jamie Foxx.

On Friday, Foxx visited The Graham Norton Show and casually threw in this lil’ ol’ fact about Ed Sheeran like it was NO BIG DEAL (it was, guys).


Yep! Ed Sheeran and Jamie Foxx were briefly roommates. So random, right?


Apparently back in 2010, Ed bought a one-way ticket to LA in hopes of making it big. He stopped by Jamie’s satellite radio show, “The Foxxhole,” and introduced himself as an aspiring singer. After doing an impromptu audition, Foxx invited Sheeran back to his ~crib~ to stay, until he essentially got his shit together.

Even though Jamie let him crash, he had to make sure that Ed was worthy. Apparently Foxx told him, “Listen man, I think you’ve got the goods but I’ve got to check you out.”

So, Jamie let Ed perform during his weekly music gig in Downtown LA.


Jamie wasn’t sure how the crowd would react, but OBVIOUSLY, they loved him.


You can catch the whole story here!

While we’re so grateful that Jamie was there for Ed while he was getting on his feet, he’s not the only celeb to lend a couch to the talented Brit. Friends star Courteney Cox invited him to stay at her beach house while he was working on his second album, X.

Ed actually introduced Courteney to her current fianceé — his good friend and Snow Patrol singer, Johnny McDaid — so it’s a good thing she let him stay!
