Ed Sheeran Mistaken for Icelandic Man in Newspaper Obituary
By Liz Calvario
Ed Sheeran is very much alive and well, contrary to what an Icelandic newspaper, Morgunblaðið, reported.
The publication included a picture of Sheeran, 26, next to an obituary of an 82-year-old man named Svavar Gunnari Sigurðsson, who died on Dec. 19. The mix-up was noticed by a Twitter user who shared a snap of the article, which featured the "Perfect" crooner's photo next to the death announcement.
"Hate to break it to u but Ed Sheeran is dead. It also turns out he is a 82 year old Icelandic man called Svavar. Ed Sheeran was apparently only his stage name.... #ripsvavarsheeran," he wrote. Sheeran has yet to comment on the mistake.
