Ed Sheeran, Grammys

Ed Sheeran does not consider himself a hunky celebrity.

"I don't see myself as a sex symbol, but if other people do, I'm not going to complain," the 23-year-old singer tells Billboard in a new interview. "I'm a singer that you never want to see shirtless. No one does! I haven't got a six-pack or pecs."

Somehow, we bet there are definitely screaming fans out there who would love to see Sheeran shirtless. "To each their own," he added.

Keeping with his self-deprecating sense of humor, Sheeran also joked about his fellow gingers, telling the mag, "The joke is, what is the one thing a ginger misses about partying? The invitation."

"Have you ever seen the Harry Potter films?" he went on. "They're very unrealistic, and it's not just about the wizards and the dragons. It's that a ginger could ever have two friends."

One celeb who's definitely friends with Sheeran is his BFF and tourmate Taylor Swift. And it sounds like the two definitely bond over their pension for writing songs based on personal experiences in their love lives.

"If you date a songwriter, be prepared to have songs written about you," Sheerhan said. "If you do nice things, you'll have nice songs. And if you do f--ked-up things, you'll get a horrible song."

Fair enough!
