If you were worried that sweet, young Brit singer Ed Sheeran was taking a turn to the wild side after hanging around this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, don’t fret, he’s still the same polite young gentleman we’ve grown to love over the past couple of years. He even took a trip to Sesame Street to prove it.
The folks at Sesame Street just released a brand new music video featuring everyone’s favourite ginger performing a special educational tune alongside Cookie Monster, Elmo and Grover. In an adorable song called “Two Different Worlds,” Sheeran teaches the Muppets a lesson in both life balance and politeness.
The cute little ditty outlines the proper ways that one should behave while at home versus at school. With verses like, “At home I can speak whenever I please. I can talk real loud and shoot the breeze. At school I raise my hand in the air when there’s something that I want to share,” he earnestly drives home the point.
Aside from bonding with everyone’s favourite Muppets, it was just announced that Sheeran will also be co-hosting the 2015 Much Music Video Awards on Sunday June 21st. This will mark a record-setting fourth straight year that Sheeran has appeared at Much’s biggest night. Sheeran is extra excited about his upcoming hosting duties, saying, “Canada, can’t wait to come back for my fourth MMVAs. I’m thrilled they (Much) asked me to host this year. I hope this isn’t an early April Fool’s joke.”
In the meantime, watch Sheeran sweetly performing with the Sesame Street Muppets below.
