Ed Sheeran opened up about his private turmoil in the April issue of Rolling Stone. He discusses his struggles with body image, depression, and substance abuse.

He said, “I’m self-conscious anyway, but you get into an industry where you’re getting compared to every other pop star. I was in the One Direction wave, and I’m like, ‘Well, why don’t I have a six-pack?’ And I was like, ‘Oh, because you love kebabs and drink beer.’

Then you do songs with Justin Bieber and Shawn Mendes.

All these people have fantastic figures. And I was always like, ‘Well, why am I so … fat?’”

He added, “I found myself doing what Elton talks about in his book – gorging, and then it would come up again.

I have a real eating problem. I’m a real binge eater. I’m a binge-everything.”
