Renowned British musician Ed Sheeran recently expressed his viewpoint on fellow artists who assert that they are driven by passion rather than a desire for success in the music industry.

 

During a recent appearance on Therapuss With Jake Shane, Sheeran unequivocally stated his skepticism towards such assertions.

The ‘Thinking Out Loud’ singer made it clear that he does not buy into the idea that some musicians are solely motivated by passion without any regard for commercial success.

In his view, artists who genuinely prioritize artistic integrity over success would not engage in commercial releases or sign with major record labels.

 

Sheeran, a recipient of multiple Grammy awards, contended that all artists harbor aspirations for recognition and success in the industry.

He emphasized that those who claim indifference toward success may simply be projecting a facade of aloofness to appear nonchalant and edgy.

He said: “I don’t believe any artist that says they don’t, otherwise, you wouldn’t release music because you’d be like, ‘If I don’t care what people think, then why would I even put it out?’ You’d just sort of make the music and be like, ‘Well, that’s made me feel good.’

 

“All artists, we want to be loved. That’s why we are on stage. And that’s why you sign to a record company, to go, ‘I would like people to hear the music that I’m making.’ I don’t really subscribe to this whole, like, not caring thing. That’s all a kind of ruse, because it sounds cool to say but every artist wants people to like their music.

“It really pisses me off when people are like, ‘Oh I don’t care how it does.’ I’m like, ‘F*cking shut up! You do! Everyone does.’ Anyone in the pop game definitely cares.”
