Ed Sheeran claims that he does not need to win an award to prove that he is a good songwriter.

The 30-year-old singer has won more than 120 awards throughout his career, including four Grammy Awards, four Ivor Novello Awards and six BRIT Awards.

Ed Sheeran is currently nominated for four awards at the BRIT Awards 2022, which will take place at "The O2" in London on February 8.

He is nominated for the British Album of the Year with "=" (Equals), the British Artist of the Year, the British Pop / R & B Artist of the Year and for the Song of the Year with "Bad Habits".

While Ed Sheeran said he was "extremely nice" when he won, he would not mind losing because it did not mean he "wrote a miserable song".

"The BRIT Awards were the only thing my year was used to focusing on: I release an album, I do a single and then we go to the BRIT Awards and see if we can win," he told the Daily Star's "Wired" column. ».

"'Shape of You' was the highest-selling song in England that year and did not win the BRIT Awards," he said.

"So, to a large extent, I have the mentality that I're just going to keep making the music I like and every now and then, when things like that happen, it's very nice and I'm very happy about it, but if I lose I'm fine," he explained.

"If I win, then that's great, but what I'm saying is that if I lost I would not think 'I made a miserable song,'" he added.

Ed Sheeran, meanwhile, recently criticized the US awards, saying they were "full of resentment and hatred".
