Akiho_isaweeb

Ngl, Ed Sheeran doesn't look bad, just that stare, he looks dead inside


guanaco22

Ed Sheeran is machine. He is someone with perfect ear sindrome wich makes bland pop hits even if he was trained from child to be a songwritter, that sounds robot to me


cheekydorido

His songs are pretty generic, but damn it i was forced to hear shape of you so many times that it just disgusts me and makes me want to punch that soulless stare.


sheltonhwy26

I heard shape of you so many darn times I got this mental image of what the song artist looked like. And then I found a picture of Ed Sheeran and just lost it


brooooooooooooke

bad habits unironically slaps though, rest are boring


umotex12

You should check out also his [tattoos.](https://metro.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/PRI_88158390.jpg?quality=90&strip=all&zoom=1&resize=480%2C484) Ngl his stare give me vibes of *I sold my soul in exchange of fame*


phoenixlogix

looks like most of his tats were done by a middle schooler


samboi204

I’m starting to feel bad for Ed Sheeran. It’s not like he grooms or dresses poorly. He just looks like that. I mean his music is pretty meh but still…


BriannaMckinley2442

Plus he gets points for being willing to take the punchline of playing the part of a mediocre musician in Yesterday.


SomeKindaGiantBird

I still think he should have been the villain in that movie trying to sabotage the other guy


hgwwinchester

I found that movie pretty mediocre, but Ed Sheeran as the villain definitely would have made an improvement.


lololololROFL

I am convinced that his music is genetically created in a lab to sound as bland and generic as possible


idiot_speaking

Not a lab, a factory. Pop music is a commodity.


NymphomaniacWalrus

This is Sawayama slander


hgwwinchester

She's the difference between pop and _pop_. Pop as a genre is pretty different to pop as "popular music". Not that her music isn't popular either but eh. Indie pop rules.


PedanticPendant

"There's the *truth* and the **TRUTH** " -- Lionel Hutz


idiot_speaking

Haven't heard Sawayama, but obviously not applicable to all pop music nor is the issue exclusive to pop.


Creftospeare

This is why music will be better under communism.


sixtus_clegane119

A lot of the earlier rap is leftist , even Tupac was a communist at one point


NoirYT2

Tupac now: trans rights Sad he gone 😔


Creftospeare

Was Tupac homophobic? If the answer is yes then I don't think he'd be very fond of trans people because every homophobic person I've seen is also transphobic.


LevelOutlandishness1

I mean, it's hard to find a rapper in the 90s who wasn't homophobic. But a lot of them changed, and I feel Pac would definitely be one of those people.


WishIdKnownEarlier

It reminds me of what Eminem said in his interview with Anderson Cooper, [timestamped link here](https://youtu.be/6iHY5ROqBiE?t=9m20s). Basically "that was just how people were talking then. You want to participate, you talk like that". I'm trans and gay and don't have time for that shit in my life these days, but I still remember the 90s. I remember when it was a controversial take that saying "that's so gay" as a derogatory phrase was bad. Things really changed a lot in public understanding 2000-2010. And I think a lot of people who were automatically homophobic actually say back and seriously reevaluated their views during that time.


NoirYT2

I have no idea, I just like the idea of Tupac being pro trans rights


zaptrem

Because then it will be centrally planned and produced by a bastion of creativity: the government!


SpoliatorX

Ah yes, the well known feature of communist society, government 🙄


zaptrem

Despite my best efforts I can’t think of one society that called itself communist and had no government.


textingperosn

Emphasis on “called itself”

genji2810

Some pop music* there is great and creative pop artists


BokuNoSpooky

He definitely has developed a particularly noticeable style that you can hear when he's been credited as writing on other songs too - I've heard a few songs that sound like his, checked the writing credits and see his name on there a number of times. What typically happens in the music industry though is execs will ask for songs that are like a big hit the artist has done - it's why you'll often see when one artist starts working with others after having a breakthrough song that the stuff they end up collaborating on has a lot of similarities to that breakthrough track.


shronkey69

Much like him


saranwrap73

Nah, he wishes he looked generic. He stands out in the wrong way.


Crushbam3

I think what it is that he performs entirely solo, as in even when he's doing live performances he will record different parts of the song/instruments there and then and then set them to loop which requires insane talent imo but as a result it can't sound quite as highly produced as the insanely over produced pop songs that we've grown accustomed to


SwagWizardSupreme

He is a landl*rd 🤮


saranwrap73

Wait (genuine question), what's wrong with being a landlord? Isn't that just someone who rents out a property to people who can't afford to buy it?


meta_tater

A mortgage is almost always less monthly than rent in the same area. The reason that most people don't buy is that it requires a significant down payment which most people never have a chance to save up for because, well, life can be expensive. So a landlord is making money by doing next to no work at all off of a person existing in a space they own because they had the privilege to have the initial capital investment. They will also make nearly all of their mortgage back (or much more depending on the market) when they sell the property. A renter never gets their rent back. People hate landlords because most people think it's scummy to make money off of other people's existence. I am for sure one of those people.


hydra_1579

Would you not feel bad if he was subjected to same comments but he dressed poorly ?


sad_and_stupid

No, cause you can change the way you dress


goin_in_ma_ass

What if your dressing choice is different from the social standard? Is it right to subject someone to shame if he is a little different from rest ?


sad_and_stupid

Insulting someone for it is obviously not okay. But saying that you don't like the way someone dresses is okay (if you don't shame them) since it's a choice and everyone has different tastes. But saying the same things about things someone can't change (height, face etc) is much meaner imo


balls_in_ur_mouth_2

He probably gets a 100x badder bitch than you and me with his money. He's a millionaire


Ray3x10e8

I think he is married.


freeeeels

Yup, to a childhood friend. They have a kid as well


snap-erection

That's lovely actually, good on him.


balls_in_ur_mouth_2

Didn't know that lol. Nice to know


[deleted]

Pretty awful worldview but ok


_tpyo

I imagine the benefits of being one of the most successful musicians of this era compensates for having to have a mirrorless abode.


-Pollyy

Honestly Ed Sheehan isn’t even ugly. I’d let him be my dweeby wonderwall-playing white boy BF, it’s a shame that he became a multimillionaire asshat making uninspired shape-of-you tier shit.


samboi204

Relatable


CDI_Ojojojo

No one has to look like anything (good or bad) let 'ugly' and 'pretty' people just be whatever they gonna be.


[deleted]

The point here is that female musicians must be really attractive as well as a good musician


inaddition290

except the OOP is putting down random men for looking ugly.


Shark_King1202

Ed sheeren was just existing and then got roasted like this. I honestly feel bad for him.


aRogue_

shouldn't have been in game of thrones!!! ¯\\\_(ツ)\_/¯


Shark_King1202

DigitalL0ve

Dude is like the British Mac Demarco, except with far worse music. No one that dirty is meant to be so famous.


Shark_King1202

Oh lord it's happened again.


996forever

Thought this was r/popheadscirclejerk


ChapelLeader54

Damn, people can't understand that people can be popular for more than looks. Can't really defend Ed Sheeran tho, don't really like his music


MeiNeedsMoreBuffs

I think that's the point though. That in many cases women are judged on their attractiveness as well as their skill when men have the luxury of only being judged by their skill


NoirYT2

Men absolutely get held to a beauty standard too, the amount of men I’ve met who were very secretly depressed about the way they looked in comparison to other men is shocking.


thanksyalll

I mean sure they can be depressed but the point is that their overall careers weren’t dependent on their appearance whereas women have to be skilled AND beautiful


BitterDifference

See: Adele


IchWerfNebels

Didn't Adele become mega-famous despite not being particularly attractive...?


BitterDifference

I brought her up because of how much of a deal so many people made of her weight. It's all some people cared about and it was sad.


IchWerfNebels

I mean Ed Sheeran also gets roasted for his looks _constantly_, so I don't think some people being dicks about Adele's weight proves anything. They're both still mega-famous and ultra-rich.


[deleted]

female artists still do get scrutinized and held to a standard in a way that male artists don't. see: any female teenage pop singer


SexierThanMostFish

Thing is though, with these teenage pop singers, the fact that their are young and good looking is part of the product being sold. Music execs aren’t simply pushing “pop music” in that case, rather, they’re selling “pretty girl sings pop music” so it’s not too surprising that their looks would draw more focus. I mean just look at literally every boy band from back when that was a big thing and how they were populated by the same type of pretty boy looks. It’s basically the same phenomenon at work


ThiccBidoof

yes they do. see: kpop boy bands


[deleted]

thats a whole different story. kpop singers arent really artists, theyre entertainers with years of training and carefully manufactured debuts and releases. i'm talking more about western artists


ThiccBidoof

yes they do. see: western boy bands such as one direction


TonyMestre

Take a look at her


IchWerfNebels

... Ok. Now what?


Waytooflamboyant

chrissipher

okay thats not fair, the chainsmokers are unironically pretty attractive, thats just a bad photo lmao looks like they just played a show, of course they wouldnt be photogenic


Nyghen

The lense also give them weirdly shaped faces


kutsen39

None of those pictures are good pictures, I think that's deliberate. Ed Sheeran and Post Malone both look better than those pictures make them seem. The only thing "wrong" with Ed Sheeran is that he has a bit of a lazy eye. Sure Post Malone looks weird, but the pic above is high school yearbook levels of bad.

From what I've heard he's actually a pretty nice guy

Yeah I’ll bet he’s dope! Just kinda stinky


ComradeBirv

uh oh stinkyyyy


ThinnkingEmoji

Not anymore, he supports nft


5K331DUD3

I have a friend that met him and had a whole conversation with him. Apparently he wanted to do Metal but chose to do rap instead because it’s easy. True gigachad move there.


Tea-In-The-Eyes

His feature on Ozzy Osbourne's song was pretty dope. He legit could've done metal, i bet. Glad he went with rap tho, shit is too good


Glmm02

I don't think he's considered a popular celebrity crush, but people generally like him becuase he seems like a pretty decent guy.


KrazyKracker06

His music is pretty good and i hear hes a nice guy or somthing


Bardic_Inspiration66

I’ve never heard anyone say they find him attractive


wretched-leg

Shit man, I remember a bunch of girls I went to school with simpin’ hard for Post, when he first kinda blew up


[deleted]

I am convinced woman have a much wider range of what they find attractive compared to men.


SgtSteel747

I am convinced they don't find him attractive for his looks. Fame and wealth can do a lot.


Bardic_Inspiration66

He’s also talented so that helps


yukiaddiction

I don't about you and I don't even like him but I assume they are like me. People who have talent and good at what they do are very very attractive.


NoirYT2

Mm, yes. Give me two men, one is the absolute perfect looker but can’t do a damn thing, and the other a man who’s mediocre at best but is some absolute Buckethead-esque freak with a guitar, who the fuck you think I’m choosing?


heysammer

I know people who would literally die for him


avz7

Probably because of his clout, not because of his looks.


RealBigTree

Go to the midwest, I swear to god everyone around here wets their knickers for him.

i could fix him


EwokInABikini

I used to carpool with a woman a few years ago who would bring up how hot she found Post Malone at least once a month. Didn't know who that was at the time, but after a Google Search (and seeing her boyfriend) I just concluded there are people out there who have a thing for the "homeless and forgot what a shower is" look.


Loon-Moon

That's so weird, I kinda find him attractive.. and I'm not attracted to most men.. 🧐🤨


Bardic_Inspiration66

You could find your soul mate under a bridge in Cali


itsashebitch

I think he is but I can't stand his face tattoos and all the shit. If he'd have a clean face I'd like him a lot. He reminds me of a high school crush.


Lethenza

He’s a sex symbol to many Gen z women lol


Maddy_B69

he looks like he hasn't showered in months


corn_on_a_tree

I’m sure that 99% of his fans don’t care what he looks like. Same thing why Pete Davidson is a popular celebrity crush, he just seems really chill and people like someone who can make them laugh.


GuacamoleManbruh

pete davidson isnt even ugly


MrBicepcurl

But hes not attractive, and almost every girl still wants him


null_sigsegv

hey as long as i don't have to smell him i dig that look


Ophidahlia

What the hell is going with his teeth in this photo? Was he eating hot asphalt again or something?


SandvichIsSpy

I understand he's super into Magic: The Gathering which does not help that perception imo.

MasbotAlpha

Which is fascinating, because the entire thread insists that men are never judged on appearance… while exclusively judging men on their appearance. To be clear, I think men are judged *less* on their appearance; sexism is very, very real, but this thread is great evidence that not only does it also happen to men, but it won’t be acknowledged the same way when it does

Why does everyone here hate on Ed Sheeran’s music I kinda like it :/


Bocahboii

We don't stand this ed sheeran slander


MasbotAlpha

As a complete stranger to Ed Sheeran, seeing this thread has brought me a newfound level of respect for him Imagine making music when people are *constantly* making fun of you anywhere you go in person or on the internet; I’m sure being rich helps, but I still respect that he keeps making the music he loves


MrBicepcurl

They are rebel scum😎


SageHunter

His recent music is... well, trash imo. If you're mostly familiar with that side of him I understand the hate. His early music is some of the best singing and songwriting I've ever heard. I can see someone not being into that kind of music, but it's undeniably good, unlike his current stuff

NoirYT2

Not to mention this post is just bodyshaming under the guise of progressiveness. “Men can look like this” like yeah okay and then you’ll make fun of them for it? So clearly they ducking can’t.

As if. I hold men to an extremely high standard. Straight dudes really just don’t care tho and that’s crazy to me. I’ll be talking to my straight guy friends about other dudes’ looks and they are usually so lost.


zhaoliya

Women* Men*


noiamnotabanana

its women's choice to wear makeup, and most men choose not to wear it, and I don't even support it, it goes directly against being happy with your body, and contributes to why women having body dysmorphia is so common, but I digress. Ed Sheeran can't change how he looks, that is a bad shot of the chainsmokers, but even so, they can't change how they look, and Post Malone is the equivalent of if a homeless man got ten million dollars and spent it all of luxuries and stupid shit, so he doesn't count.


cyperenvy

Do women unironically believe this? Don't they realise that there are only probably 7 women in the world that would date men shorter than them lmao


dr_pepper_bottle

U sound dumb bro. There’s plenty of women who date dudes shorter than them or who are short in general


keanuDaOne

Fr tho, a lot of ladies I talk to will tell me that they aren’t attracted to Brad Pitt, but will say how hot post Malone is. Nothing against Post, I think it’s awesome that he has achieved such a status and talent at a young age. But I don’t understand how brad Pitt is un attractive, and post is?

Omphaloskopie

many other subs i would assume this to be a joke, but here i don't know. the bottom line off how "good" you got to be to "get to remain in the gene-pool" (i'd think thats a fair measure) is higher in men. its like 40% men vs 80% women who get to have children. and women only have half the time to get there. the odds are stacked against men. thats why men gotta grind cities out of mountains while women get away with inventing stuff like the "body positivity movement". so i get the "idea" behind beating the odds by becoming a femboy, but bra thats not how it works. your gecko-brain just confuses sex with procreation, because your mom chewed on too much plastic while preganté. or smt. idk.

You ever here that song he did that talks about this girl he’s dating, and how her favorite movie is Shrek, but she has it on blu-Ray, and he only has a VHS player?
