People are left speechless at the reveal of Ed’s wax work!
Watch Our Video Of The Week
This is your opportunity to see the legendary Ed Sheeran up close and personal.
Fans are horrified by a brand-new wax sculpture of the “Thinking Out Loud” star that was recently unveiled in Germany.
The artist Lisa Büscher’s lifelike replica of Sheeran made its public debut at the Panoptikum Museum in Hamburg on July 13th, and it has already gotten a lot of mixed reactions.
The singer is the most recent celebrity to be honoured in wax at the country’s first wax museum, which Friedrich Hermann Faerber built in 1879.
From a fair distance – and by a fair distance, I mean a good distance – the figure seems like a dead ringer for Sheeran.
But upon closer inspection, there are undoubtedly a few discrepancies that will cause you to pause.
The “Shape of You” hitmaker is seen in photos taken of the wax work with his trademark shaggy ginger hair, layered long sleeves, and a t-shirt combo pushed up to show off his tattoos, along with piercing blue eyes that are, if anything, a little soulless.
The waxy Sheeran can also be seen with his right hand curled up in his jean pocket and his left shoulder slung over a Little Martin acoustic guitar.
Both of which hands are covered with stacks of bracelets in his distinctive style.
His general vibe, I will say, is pretty bang on.
People have since taken to Twitter to share their opinions on the wax work with one writing: “Oh hell nah.”
A second penned: “There’s a new Ed Sheeran wax figure in Germany and well……”
A third social media user asked: “Why does it look like Boris Johnson?”
“Why’s Boris Johnson doing an Ed cosplay?” echoed a fourth.
“There is something about that face,” posted another, “that reminds me of someone else, but definitely not Ed.”
A final person added: “Looks accurate but a super shaggy version of him.”
A Berlin-based artist named Büscher acknowledged that the project was “challenging” because of the somewhat finicky nature of the materials utilised to make it.
Working with hot wax probably isn’t as simple as using a canvas and some oil paints, in my opinion.
The 32-year-old’s “many tattoos” were depicted using a “intricate and time-consuming process,” according to the artist.
“Every very tattoo has a special meaning for him,” she added.
Interesting company indeed.
Ed Sheeran To Launch His ‘Own Extra Strength Sun Cream’ For Gingers
He believes that having ginger hair would help him in marketing.
According to reports, Ed Sheeran is entering the beauty industry by introducing a factor 70 extra-strong sunscreen for gingers.
The hitmaker already owns a restaurant and a management company, but it appears that he is considering starting a new business.
The musician, 31, who has a net worth of £260 million, believes that his own fair skin and ginger hair would provide him a competitive edge since people would believe him to be knowledgeable in his field.
Explaining that it would be “for fun”, the hitmaker shared: “You would buy sun cream if my face was on it.
“Because you’d be like ‘He definitely knows what he’s talking about’ If you were going to a hot country and you needed Factor 70.”
There might have been a few redheads and gingers who would have liked some factor 70 this summer during the heatwave.
Ed Sheeran Lost His Vision After Smoking Pot With Snoop Dogg
English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran, known for hits like ‘Shape of You’ and ‘Perfect,’ recently shared a hilarious anecdote about smoking marijuana with the legendary rapper Snoop Dogg. The incident left him temporarily blinded by the experience.
During a guest appearance on the ‘Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend’ podcast, the 32-year-old musician recounted an unexpected encounter with Snoop Dogg in Melbourne, Australia, where Australian actor Russell Crowe played a part in their cannabis adventure.
Sheeran admitted that he isn’t a regular cannabis user, saying, “I don’t really smoke at all.” However, when he found himself backstage with Snoop Dogg and Russell Crowe, they began passing around joints relentlessly.
He humorously described the situation, saying, “I was like, I guess at some point during the night, I have to, just to say I smoked with Snoop Dogg. He was like, ‘Do you want some?’ So, I have a bit, and I was like, ‘I don’t feel too bad, this is good.’ Then I have a bit more, and then I have a bit more, and then I have a bit more. I just remember looking at him and being like, ‘I can’t see right now.'”
Video footage on Instagram captured the meeting between Sheeran and Snoop Dogg, with the rapper sitting between the two men, and a glass jar of green herbs on the table, undoubtedly the source of their “blunt for blunt” session.
Snoop Dogg, renowned for his affinity for cannabis, resides in California, where recreational marijuana is legal. Since 2016, he has even employed a full-time joint roller, known as Renegade Piranha, who claimed to have rolled over 450,000 joints during her tenure.
In response to these remarkable claims, Snoop Dogg playfully dismissed them by posting a screenshot and joking, “The b**** is conning you, man.” He followed it up with a video revealing nine burnt roaches and the caption, “Stop lying.”
This comical tale adds a new layer to the enduring legend of Snoop Dogg’s affinity for marijuana, and it’s certainly a unique memory for Ed Sheeran to cherish.
