Playing Ed Sheeran Hasn't Had a Phone in Over a Year: 'It's So Much Less Stress'

Ed Sheeran has no problem keeping up with his New Year's resolutions.

The 25-year-old singer made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing Tuesday, when he shared that he's stuck to his pledge last year of getting rid of his phone. Amazingly, the "Shape Of You" singer has managed to stay off the grid for over a year now.

"I still don't have a phone number," Sheeran says. "I bought an iPad and I just work off of email. It's so much less stress. I don't wake up in the morning and have to answer 50 messages of people asking for something."

"It's just, like, I wake up and have a cup of tea," he continues about his now much simpler lifestyle.

Last month, Sheeran explained why he doesn't have a regular phone anymore. "I have an addictive personality -- you can see from the tattoos," he said during his appearance on BBC's Radio 1 Breakfast. "So, my New Year’s resolution was to get off social media. I've got one of those little drug dealer phones -- untraceable burners. I told [Adele] I got a flip phone and she thought I was taking the mick out of her."

The GRAMMY-winning singer also hilariously surprised adorable singer Kai Langer during his appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, when the 8-year-old viral singer passionately sang his tune, "Thinking Out Loud."

But are adorable kids like Kai in Sheeran's future? Earlier this month, the singer talked about potentially marrying his girlfriend, Cherry Seaborn, and having kids, and he definitely wasn't opposed.
