In the most disappointing result in the 60 years of the Grammys, Ed Sheeran`s `Shape of You` won the 2018 Grammy Award for pop solo performance. Even the late Rob Pilatus of Milli Vanilli is turning over in his grave.
The other four nominees (Lady Gaga, Pink, Kesha & Kelly Clarkson) were bona fide divas who never fail to deliver a knockout performance.
I fail to comprehend how this wanker sells out arenas, the perfect venue for Sheeran is an old timer`s bar where the patrons are deaf and drunk and his singing is just an ambient noise that doesn`t distract them from their main focus, getting plastered.
Sheeran is a lackadaisical singer and a horrible songwriter, case in point the lyrics to “Shape of You”:
I`m in love with the shape of you
We push and pull like a magnet do
Although my heart is falling too
I`m in love with your body
Last night you were in my room
And now my bedsheets smell like you.
“Shape of You” is the song that plays in an elevator that descends all the way down to the pit of hell.
If “Shape of You” comes on the radio the average person won`t simply change the radio station, he will blast it to smithereens with a double-barreled sawed-off shotgun. And if he`s listening to the radio in the bathtub when the song is played, he will knock the radio into the tub, choosing death over the chance that he will ever hear that cursed song again.
Sheeran`s CD`s should be tossed into a bonfire! Come to think of it, he should be set on fire as well!
This is the lament of a pop culture critic, not a call to action.
