The outlet noted that Sheeran revealed he lost a few of his friends after becoming famous. According to the singer, when Forbes released the list in 2015, he started getting text messages from friends with “photos of cars attached.”
Sheeran went on to say that a text would read: “I’d like this for my birthday, please. This one’s only .06 percent of your annual income.” The singer said that the list actually “f***ed it up” for him. The website disclosed in 2015 that the Thinking Out Loud singer was worth $57 million that time.

The singer is aware that his popularity will fade soon, which is why he does not want the music industry, including its perks, to be his reality. “I should just enjoy this while it’s there, but not let it become my reality. Because that’s not the reality I want to live in,” said Sheeran.
