“I definitely have a big feminine side,” he shared. “I love musical theatre, I love pop music, I love Britney Spears. My masculine side probably stops at drinking beer and watching football.”

“When I was a kid, I thought I was gay for a bit,” Sheeran added.

The “Bad Habits” singer revealed he also prefers watching the women’s leagues in sports. “I watched it and I was like, ‘I don’t know why I watch male football, this is much better.’”

As for his vehicles, Sheeran said he doesn’t wish to be in the world’s fanciest car. “I am not a car guy. I like a nice car, but I’m not a car guy,” the “Shape of You” singer said.

“But then, my wife is super pro-women and femininity. And so, as soon as we started dating, my life shifted to that,” Sheeran added.

“She plays in a female hockey team. We hang out with all the team. It’s very much women empowerment.”
