Ed Sheeran Opens Up About Smoking With Snoop Dogg And Going Blind


Ed Sheeran, the acclaimed British singer-songwriter, recently revealed a surprising and hilarious encounter he had with none other than hip-hop legend Snoop Dogg.

Key Takeaway

Ed Sheeran revealed that he got so high during a smoke session with Snoop Dogg that he temporarily lost his vision. This hilarious incident highlights the contrast between Ed’s lightweight lungs and Snoop’s legendary smoking prowess.

In an interview with Conan O’Brien on his podcast “Needs a Friend,” Ed shared that he’s not much of a smoker, but he couldn’t resist the opportunity to say that he had smoked with Snoop Dogg. Little did he know that this experience would leave him momentarily blinded.

An Unforgettable Smoke Session

The smoke session began innocently enough, with Ed and Snoop passing the blunt back and forth. However, as the conversation flowed and the blunt continued to circle, Ed realized something was amiss. He looked up at Snoop and, to his astonishment, found that his vision had become blurred. The potent effects of the marijuana had overwhelmed him, to the point where he couldn’t see straight.

It should come as no surprise that Snoop Dogg, a seasoned connoisseur of cannabis, can handle his smoke like a pro. Ed, on the other hand, soon discovered his own limits. Nevertheless, he handled the situation with good humor, recognizing that Snoop’s tolerance and expertise in smoking were simply unmatched.

An Unexpected Rival for Snoop

While Snoop Dogg may have given Ed Sheeran a run for his money, Ed revealed that he has encountered an even more formidable smoker – Nigerian artist Burna Boy. According to Ed, Burna Boy holds the title for being the biggest smoker he has come across.

Although the experience left him temporarily blind, Ed Sheeran can now proudly say that he shared a memorable smoking session with one of the biggest names in the music industry. This comical anecdote offers a glimpse into the lighter side of celebrity encounters and the unexpected consequences of trying to keep pace with a legendary smoker like Snoop Dogg.
