Though Ed Sheeran has a new album on the way, on Sunday night (Sept. 12) at the 2021 MTV Video Music Awards, he was more so in executive mode. He walked the red carpet alongside his artist, burgeoning pop singer Maisie Peters, and gushed about what he has learned so far from her during their time together.
"For me, I think it's wonderful having someone like Maisie, who's a generation down from me, seeing how she write songs, how she speaks to her fanbase, and it's a totally new level of doing things that I couldn't do myself because she's grown up with it," Sheeran shared with Billboard on the red carpet. "She knows how to work her fanbase. It's the same with me in 2011 and Twitter. It's the same with her amazing fanbase now."
