Ed Sheeran found the purr-fect way to celebrate his Grammy wins.
Even though the 26-year-old “Shape of You” singer skipped out on attending the 60th annual Grammy Awards on Sunday, he honored the big night through social media — by sharing an adorable picture of his cat.
“Woke up to the news I won two grammys last night. Thank you ! This little fluff-ball is doing a bit of a celebratory dance, lots of love to everyone xx,” Sheeran wrote on social media, Sunday, alongside a picture of his white-and-orange kitty splayed out on the floor.
Despite being a no-show, Sheeran picked up a win for Best Solo Pop Performance (“Shape of You”) and Best Pop Vocal Album (÷)
But some social media users were upset after Sheeran’s win for “Shape of You,” as the Brit beat out a female-filled category that included Kelly Clarkson, Kesha, Lady Gaga, and Pink.
With the odds in favor of a woman walking away with the best pop solo performance victory during an awards season that’s been empowering and embracing women’s work, Sheeran’s win was viewed as a disappointment to some.
Before the show began, Clarkson — who carried a white rose to support the Time’s Up initiative — called the mostly female category “insane” earlier during the E! Live from the Red Carpet pre-show. “There’s four girls and Ed Sheeran,” the “Love So Soft” singer told Ryan Seacrest. “Women are ruling my category so I love it!”
The 60th annual Grammy Awards, hosted by James Corden, were broadcast live on CBS from Madison Square Garden in New York City.
