Ed Sheeran Says Eminem Cured His Stutter

Ed Sheeran Says Eminem Cured His Stutter

Ed Sheeran has been in the news a lot as of late. He was recently in court facing a copyright claim from the estate of Marvin Gaye. However, he was successful in that case. Elsewhere, Sheeran has long been open about the stutter he overcame as child. However, he has not previously spoken in depth about what helped him drop the stutter. That has all changed with a recent interview and the answer might surprise you.

Speaking on The Howard Stern Show, Sheeran revealed that it can be traced back to an Eminem album. "(My uncle) just said to my dad, 'This guy is the next Bob Dylan. You gotta let him listen,'" he recounted. "And by learning that record - and rapping it back to back to back to back - it cured my stutter." That's right, rapping along to Eminem is what helped Ed Sheeran.

Sheeran continued, speaking on the friendship he has developed with the rapper in recent years. "I think it's different with Eminem because he is quite reclusive, doesn't see or meet that many people. I've known him now (for) six years and we've done three songs together, I've played with him twice onstage. He's another person I really relate to, as he lives in his hometown still and has his eco-system around him."

"I remember getting the call to do it. I was shooting... 14 music videos back to back... and it was like on my day off from shooting the music videos, and I was like, 'I can't say no. I can't,'" he continued. "So, I got a plane straight after my music video, flew there for the song, and then that night flew back. It was really worth it," Sheeran said, speaking on performing "Stan" with Eminem at his Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction last year. What do you think about Sheeran's story?
