Life gotcha down?
When asked by Billboard over the weekend about not getting the expected nods for the esteemed awards, the 26-year-old said he’s not disappointed because “when one door closes, another door opens.” So mature!
The Shape Of You singer explained:
“There’s a very clear reason why that happened and it’s bigger than me, like much bigger than me, and like it’s just something that, again, it was just meant to be, that is the way that this year was meant to roll out.”
“You know I’m not dying, it’s not like I’m never gonna be nominated for a Grammy again. And I was nominated for two Grammys. This is why everything’s meant to be. The week after that, I get an MBE from the palace, I go No. 1 on Spotify, I go No. 1 on Billboard, I’m about to have my second ever Billboard No. 1, like there’s so many other things in the mix that counterbalance it. That’s just the way I live my life. When one door closes, another door opens. You’ll really, really send yourself mental if you think into things too much, and I’m just so easy-going when it comes to that.”
That’s great advice! Plus, he got to work with Beyoncé afterwards so we feel like that’s reward enough.

We’re sure Ed has plenty of awards waiting for him in the future!
