Ed Sheeran Recounts His Smoke Session With Snoop Dogg
In a recent episode of Conan O’Brien’s “Needs A Friend” podcast, Ed Sheeran revealed he got significantly stoned to the point of losing his sight during a meeting with Snoop Dogg at one of his live shows in Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena in March.
Sheeran, accompanied by his wife Cherry Seaborn and mother-in-law Ann, initially joined Dogg’s entourage for some backstage fun. The “Shape of You” singer, who is not a regular smoker, felt compelled to share a joint with the “Bad Decisions” hitmaker, leading to unexpected consequences.
He recalled the experience: “I don’t really smoke at all, but I was in the dressing room, and they were just like blunt for blunt for blunt. I was like, I guess at some point during the night, I have to, just to say I smoked with Snoop Dogg.”
He continued: “He was like, ‘Do you want some?’ so I have a bit, and I was like, I don’t feel too bad, this is good. Then I have a bit more, and then I have a bit more, and then I have a bit more.”
“I just remember looking at him and being like, I can’t see right now,” he concluded.
Snoop Dogg ‘Joint Roller’ Says He Smokes 150 Blunts Daily
In October 2022, Dogg’s personal “joint roller,” Renegade, made headlines when she revealed that the iconic rapper, who resides in California, where recreational marijuana is legal, indulges in smoking up to 150 marijuana blunts daily.
Renegade, employed by the “Doggyland” rapper since 2016, disclosed on The “Kyle and Jackie O Show” that she had rolled over 450,000 joints for Snoop during her tenure.
“I calculated it at over 450,000. I do about half a pound a day, which is 75 to 150 joints,” she revealed.
In 2015, Dogg launched Merry Jane, a lifestyle media platform catering to weed enthusiasts of all levels.
Ed Sheeran Increases His Income By £10 Million
Sheeran, who recently released his seventh album titled “Autumn Variations,” is experiencing substantial financial growth, granting himself a generous £10 million pay increase, as reported by The Mirror.
In 2022, his income surged to an impressive £18.3 million, marking an £8.4 million increase from the previous year. Recent financial reports showcase his remarkable success, with a total turnover of £89 million since 2019.
“I think that would be the only way that I would do it, is if I was joining someone else,” the “Bad Habits” singer said. “I don’t have pizazz. There’s all of these amazing performers; I’m just not that.”
He continued, “I’m not gonna have dancers on stage. I’m not gonna have fireworks and blah blah. I just can’t. That’s not me. I don’t think that anyone wants to see me do the Super Bowl either.”
Ed Sheeran’s Copyright Legal Battle Far From Over
Despite Sheeran’s recent success on his seventh album, the copyright dispute surrounding his hit song “Thinking Out Loud” and its alleged resemblance to Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On” is far from resolved.
While one of Sheeran’s accusers dropped their case recently, a different group of plaintiffs have taken the matter to a federal appeals court, initiating a new round of litigation that could potentially revive the lawsuit against the British singer.
In their opening brief to the appeals court, Sheeran’s accusers wrote, per Billboard, “The district court’s erroneous decisions should be reversed, and appellant’s case restored so that it can proceed to trial.”
The original lawsuit against the 32-year-old singer was initiated by the daughter of Ed Townsend, a co-writer of the iconic 1973 song with Marvin Gaye. This legal battle concluded with a jury verdict in May that cleared Sheeran of any copyright infringement.
However, last week, the lawyers representing Kathryn Griffin Townsend, the daughter, abandoned their efforts to overturn that verdict, officially concluding that aspect of the legal dispute.
