Sam Smith may have described a rather tame Grammy nomination celebration with best mate Ed Sheeran over sushi and water.
But fear not, we can now reveal that things turned a LOT more crazy for Ed later that evening, after he told us he went “wild” on Jagerbombs and champagne.
The triple nominee told Yahoo Celebrity he was downing bubbly from a pint glass and getting rounds of shots in for people on the street after learning he was up for Best Album at the prestigious ceremony.
He said: “[Sam Smith] and I went out for lunch and celebrated but in the evening when I found out I had the Best Album nomination I went wild.
I went out to a dive bar and just ended up outside and I ordered loads of rounds of Jagerbombs for everyone. People I hadn’t even met, I was just buying drinks for everyone outside. It was good.
“I had this huge metal mug that I’d stolen and I was just filling it with champagne and drinking it like it was beer. It was a mad night.”
Well that sounds more like it, Ed.
Talking about how he’d react if he actually picks up the Grammy on the night, he said: “I don’t really know what I’ll do if I win. If I did win the best album one I’d make it quite brief and let other people say something. Afterwards would be mental though.”
And he revealed he hasn’t really given much thought to what he’ll wear but will definitely be looking dapper. He added: “I guess I will wear a suit. My friend’s dad makes suits – Casey Helford – and I think they’re gonna make me one.”
Ed and Sam make up a strong British presence at the Grammy’s in February – with nine nominations in total.
Sam previously told The Sun: “I was with Ed the day it happened. We were so happy… we went for lunch and had sushi. But no drink was involved so it wasn’t a proper celebration.
“I can’t believe I got six. I’m yet to let it all sink in properly… I won’t lie, it was exhausting. You’d think it would be the happiest day of my life but it was weirdly emotional.
“I had one glass of champagne in bed, by myself. It really was in the lonely hour… There was no-one with me – I had to make the most of my three hours’ sleep. But tonight I’ll have a bottle of wine in my room with my make-up artist.”
