Ed Sheeran does not seem like much of a fan of US award shows. The Shape of You singer revealed his thoughts about music award shows held in the country. 

Expressing displeasure, Sheeran said, "The room is filled with resentment and hatred toward everyone else and it's quite an uncomfortable atmosphere."

"All the artists are sweet people, but they're like, surrounded by entourages that want them to win too, so it's one artist surrounded by ten people and another artist surrounded by ten people and everyone is kind of giving each other the side-eye," he added.

Speaking on  Audacy's The Julia Show , Sheeran revealed after the VMAs that British award shows are much more homely.

"In England, our award shows are just like, everyone gets drunk and no one really cares who wins or loses, it's just sort of a good night out," the Bad Habits singer said.

"People get the same feeling as me at those award shows," Sheeran continued. "I've spoken to people and they're like, 'I just felt really depressed afterward.' The atmosphere is just not nice… It's a really, really horrible atmosphere to be in there. I always walk away feeling sad and I don't like it."
