Ed Sheeran Defends His Decision To Wear A T-Shirt And Jeans Next To Beyoncé

Just a couple days ago, Ed Sheeran and Queen Beyoncé performed their duet "Perfect" together for the first time at the Global Citizen Festival in South Africa. Their singing was lovely, duh, but most people couldn't take their eyes off of Ed's extremely casual getup. Per usual, Ed was in jeans and a long-sleeved shirt underneath a short-sleeved tee while Beyoncé was flawlessly decked out in a gigantic magenta gown.

The contrast was stark, and the critics were swift. Right after people saw what both stars were wearing, a huge debate erupted on social media. Some people thought the outfits perfectly represented white male privilege and thought the public had wrongly enabled Ed to think it's OK to wear this in the presence of Bey.

And others thought it just represented their different careers and stage presences.


Unsurprisingly, all of this talk on the internet got back to Ed, and he has some words for everyone. Mainly, he DGAF what anyone thinks because he's still getting paid. He took to his Instagram Stories to post a picture of the shirt along with a joke, "swipe up to 'get the look'" and "#dresstoimpress." LOLLLL.

If you feel so inclined, you can get Ed's T-shirt from the UK streetwear brand Hoax 1994. To shop Beyoncé's lewk, you'll probs need your own fashion label. Sorry to disappoint, but that's Queen Bey for ya.
