“I can’t see anything right now” – that’s what Ed Sheeran thought as he smoked a joint with US rapper Snoop Dogg. The singer probably still felt good.
Ed Sheeran, 32, has shared his hazy memories of smoking marijuana with Snoop Dogg, 51, backstage after a live show in Australia. The singer-songwriter spoke on Monday’s edition of Conan O’Brien’s (60) podcast “Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend” about some experiences with other celebrities, including the backstage experience after the rapper’s performance in Melbourne in March .
Ed Sheeran: “I smoked with Snoop Dogg”
After the British musician attended the concert with his wife Cherry Seaborn and mother-in-law, Sheeran went backstage to meet the US star. Since Snoop is known to be an avid marijuana smoker, Sheeran didn’t want to miss the opportunity to share a joint with the California-based artist. “I don’t actually smoke at all. I was in the locker room and they were just (smoking) one joint after another. At some point I thought I had to do it, just to be able to say I smoked with Snoop Dogg,” he recalled.
“I can’t see anything right now.”
The “Perfect” singer then described how he and Snoop talked before the “Drop It Like It’s Hot” rapper offered him some of the drug. “We had a good conversation. So I took a little bit, and I thought, ‘I don’t feel bad, this is good. Then I smoked some more, and some more, and some more… I just remember looking at him and thinking, I can’t see anything right now,” he added, while O’Brien and that Audience in the studio laughed.
Earlier this year, Sheeran shared insight into the extent of his past drug use ahead of the release of his Disney+ documentary series The Sum of it All. After seeing his friends using various drugs, the singer also started using them. “And then (I) tried it. And then it became a habit that you did once a week and then once a day and then twice a day and then without alcohol. “It was a bad experience,” he told Rolling Stone.
