"I had a port-wine stain birthmark on my face that I got lasered off when I was very young; one day, they forgot to put the anesthetic on, and ever since then, I had a stutter," said Sheeran at the event hosted by actress Emily Blunt.
Oddly enough, the Thinking Out Loud singer credits rapper Eminem with helping him overcome his stutter! As he tells ABC News, Sheeran says it all started when his dad bought him the Marshall Mathers LP at age 9.
"Kids worry a lot about fitting in but the moment you stop trying to fit in is when stuff fits around you," Sheeran pointed out. "Everything you think is wrong with you is actually right with you because that makes you an individual and that makes you an even more interesting human."
