Ed Sheeran deals with “common hobbies” with Eminem
According to Ed, he said that he was close enough to keep in touch with Eminem even in private, and having a common hobby with him was an opportunity to foster friendship. Ed, who recently appeared on the BBC show Jules Club, said, “I’m collecting cassettes. I also have cassettes from Ray Charles and Stevie Wonder, but it’s hard to find.” He revealed that he collects cassettes as a hobby, but Eminem also has a hobby of collecting cassettes.
“He also collects cassettes. That’s his hobby. He likes to collect. He collects enthusiastically,” Ed reveals about Eminem’s hobby.
When they found out that they had a common hobby of collecting cassettes, they said they “started something like a cool pen pal”. “I just received a message about LL Cool J’s cassettes,” Ed said, revealing that he regularly interacts with Eminem about cassette tapes.
“He said,’I started rap because of this cassette,'” Ed said. “I sent him a Van Morrison cassette, but next time I’m thinking of sending him a David Gray’White Ladder’cassette.”
For Ed, Eminem, who has the same hobby, seems to be a very valuable friend, and he said, “The only person I know who collects in the same way is Eminem.”
