As they say, s--t happens.

And for Ed Sheeran, this applies in the figurative and literal sense. The British singer recently revealed in an interview that in addition to wowing sold out arenas with his angelic voice, he's been known to pass gas (and another unfortunate bodily function) while on stage. 

During a round of some pretty TMI questions with Australian radio station Nova FM, Sheeran said he farts "all the time" during his concerts and once actually "misjudged a fart on stage, which ended up being a shart." 


Sheeran, who also admitted he's gone at least three days without changing his underwear, went on to explain the embarrassing situation.

"It was like midway through a performance and I was really lively, and then halfway through I was like, 'All right I'm just going to stand for the rest of the performance, and hope it's over soon and then go home and throw these trousers out!'" the 24-year-old shared. 

Ed, we recommend stocking up on Pepto Bismol for your upcoming tour dates. 

After laying out those nasty deets, Sheeran weighed in on the apparent VMA feud between Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj that knocked the Twitterverse on its head earlier this week. Like any good member of Swift's star-studded posse, the "Photograph" singer defended his gal pal, saying,  "Nicki Minaj is nominated for five…Why are you getting worked up? You're doing very well."

"It's a f--king MTV Award man. No one gives a f--k in a year's time. It's not a Grammy. It's not a Brit, and most of them are set up and pre-planned beforehand, so don't get too upset if you don't win," Sheeran added.

With six nominations going into Aug. 30's award show, Sheeran says he's really gunning for "Thinking Out Loud" to win one of the four honors it's nominated for, including video of the year, because he "put so much effort into that video."
