Even if you’re a licensed, certified Sheerio with a PhD.-level knowledge of Edward Christopher Sheeran (like, you already knew that he loves Damien Rice, hates kale, and speaks German he speaks German and hates kale), there’s a fair chance you may have learned something new about the Bard of Britain (sorry, Shakespeare — you’ve been replaced) in his “Nine Days And Nights Of Ed Sheeran” MTV documentary. Some of these things (loathing of kale, chilling in PJ pants) are normal, while others — coming of age near a castle, posting up at Rick Rubin’s place, and receiving a needlepoint handcrafted by your bestie, Taylor Swift — are decidedly not normal.
