During Sheeran's visit to New York City's 92.3 AMP Radio Friday morning (Jan. 13), the "Shape of You" singer recalled a time when he claimed he was a tall Scottish DJ rather than a 5' 8" ginger-haired British singer. Yes, Sheeran once claimed he was Calvin Harris.
When AMP Radio's Shoboy asked Sheeran if he's ever snuck into somewhere cool, he had quite the story. "Yeah, I went to an Oscars party at Madonna’s manager’s house by saying I was Calvin Harris. It was at a time when no one knew what he looked like, just the DJ name, and I was with my cousin and Rita Ora. Rita Ora was with Calvin Harris at this point. She said Calvin’s on the list and I know he’s not coming, so just say that you’re him."
