Thinking Out Loud singer, Ed Sheeran, says he doesn’t smoke but when you’re hanging out with Snoop Dogg, there really isn’t any other option.
While chatting with Conan O’Brien on his podcast, Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend, he shared a story of smoking backstage at a show in Australia with the rapper. He explain that his very close friend, Russel Crowe, had a good relationship with Snoop Dogg. Crowe, who Sheeran says has smoke-off with the Sensual Seduction artist, was in the room that night.
“I don’t really smoke at all,” Sheeran shared. “I was in the dressing room and they’re just [smoking] blunt for blunt for blunt for blunt, and I’m like, I guess at some point during the night I have to, just to be like, ‘I smoked with Snoop Dogg.’”
He eagerly awaited his turn to smoke with the legend. His opportunity arrived sooner than he thought.
“He was like, ‘Do you want some?’ and I was like, ‘Now’s the time.’ We were having a good conversation,” recalled Sheeran.
He said that his experience that night was like none other.
“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,” Sheeran continued. “I just remember looking at him and being like, ‘I can’t see right now.'”
