13 Times Ed Sheeran Tried To Be Badass But Just Ended Up Being Cute

Ruby Rose really gave him a run for his money.

Ed Sheeran and Ruby Rose were billed as 2015 MTV EMA emcees with the tagline "a little cute and a little badass." The "cute" part obviously refers to Ed, a squeezable cat-loving teddy bear. "Badass" clearly describes the tattoed model Ruby, who plays a convict on TV.

So when Ed hosted the EMA on Sunday night (Oct. 25) in Milan, he played up his lovable side -- while also competing with Ruby Rose. Here are Ed's best, most badass moments on during the 2015 EMA:

  1. On the red carpet when he was presumably thinking about cheese...
  2. When Ruby Rose was going in about his music and he was just like...
  3. When Ruby Rose is torching everyone and he's just drinking a gin & tonic...
  4. When he was wearing a weird cap in bed...
  5. OK, well, actually, his performance with Rudimental was pretty badass...
  6. At least these guys thought so...
  7. Look at him up there. Badass (and cute).
  8. When he was riding his grandma's scooter as his getaway vehicle...
  9. When the coolest trick up his sleeve was hiding a banana...
  10. And throwing it at the crowd...
  11. He couldn't help but plug his involvement on Tori Kelly's record...
  12. Oh wait -- Ed's got this...
  13. No flames, just confetti. But hey, it'll work.
