In an interview with “The Jonathan Ross Show,” Singer Ed Sheeran opened up about his past struggles with substance abuse.
He reflected on his rise to fame and how he was unable to adjust to the lifestyle. He said, "I think you need to, when you get into the industry, adjust to it and I didn’t adjust because I was constantly working on tour. I didn’t really have any growing up time into getting famous. All the pitfalls that people read about, I just found myself slipping into all of them. Mostly, like, substance abuse.” Nearly two years ago, Sheeran announced that he was taking a year off. He never explained the reason behind the decision.
