Ed Sheeran Calls London “Sketchy” and “Dangerous”

Despite being a proud owner of 22 properties in London, Ed Sheeran, known for his hit song “Take Me Back to London,” has recently voiced his concerns about the city’s safety. In a recent chat with US podcaster Theo Von, Sheeran described all areas of London as “sketchy” and “dangerous.”

Sheeran, who resides on a lavish £3.75m estate in Suffolk, rents out most of his London properties, which include flats in Battersea, apartments in Whitechapel, and properties in Covent Garden. However, his advice to anyone in the city is straightforward: avoid it if you don’t want to get robbed.

When asked about dangerous areas, Sheeran remarked, “I’d say every area of London. Literally, every area is sketchy. It’s not like a segregated city. The nice areas are sketchy, the bad areas are sketchy, but you just have to not do stupid things. If you walk around with a Louis Vuitton bag and a 200 grand watch, you are going to get robbed. But just don’t do that.”

Sheeran didn’t just stop at safety concerns. He also criticized the Conservative Party’s lack of support for the arts. He shared his frustrations about funding cuts that have impacted music, drama, and arts education in comprehensive schools. In response, Sheeran has been actively supporting music programs in high schools.

“My old music teacher told me the government doesn’t value the arts, and they cut all funding for comprehensive high schools. So I started funding my local high school, built a recording studio, provided proper instruments, and saw a huge improvement in the students’ engagement with music. Now, we’re expanding this support nationwide to more high schools that need music funding,” Sheeran explained.

Ed Sheeran’s commitment to supporting arts education highlights his dedication to nurturing future talent, despite his critical view of London’s safety.
