Ed Sheeran is signing off and won’t be back anytime soon.
The British singer announced his intent to take step away from social media on Sunday in a message posted to his fans on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
“Hello all. I’m taking a break from my phone, emails and all social media for a while,” the 24-year-old wrote. “I’ve had such an amazing ride over the last five years but I find myself seeing the world through a screen and not my eyes so i’m taking this opportunity of me not having to be anywhere or do anything to travel the world and see everything I missed.”
He continued, “To my family and friends, if you love me you will understand me buggering off for a bit, to my fans, the 3rd album is on it is way and is the best thing I have made thus far.”
Sheeran has 16 million Twitter and 5.5 million Instagram followers. What do you think of his decision?
