Ed Sheeran plans to give Sam Smith a 6ft tall marble penis as a gift
Ed Sheeran sure knows what to get the singer who already has everything in their life – a giant marble penis.
Following news that Ed gifted a marble penis to 74-year-old rock and roll legend Sir Elton John, it seems Sam also wants one.
And while Ed sounds more than happy to oblige, Sam might need a very large mantlepiece as Ed says he is going to send him one that is 6ft 2in tall.
He told Zoe Ball on Radio 2: “I’m having a life-size one made for Sam Smith as well because Sam saw one of them in my pub at home and said, ‘Oh my God, I’d love one of them’.
"So I’m having one the size of them.”
Last month, Sir Elton revealed that Ed had bought him an elaborate stone penis as a birthday present earlier in the year.
He told Hit 109.9: “For my birthday this year, he gave me a giant marble penis… I don’t know if that’s because I’ve always been a prick or not.
“I suggested to [husband] David [Furnish] that I should put it in the garden. And he said, ‘No, we have children.'
“But it’s a beautifully-made penis. What can I tell you? What do you buy the man who has everything? A beautiful marble penis!”
Meanwhile, Ed recently showed his generosity in a slightly more traditional way – by sponsoring a friend who is running a marathon for charity.
John Parker, part of folk duo Nizlopi, has revealed Ed gifted him £10,000 when he asked him to help spread the news that he would be running a marathon to raise funds for a hospice where his mother was treated.
The JCB Song singer was astonished when Ed made the five-figure donation when he contacted him on the off chance of helping raise awareness of his running plans.
John told Worcester News: “I’m massively touched by Ed’s sponsorship, kindness and support; it proves that no matter how famous you get, you can still be a top person.”
Ed used to work as a guitar technician with Nizlopi – who enjoyed the Christmas number 1 in 2005.
John says Ed started working with the band, which includes Luke Concannon, when he was 14 and "just used to hang out with us."
John is running the Virtual London Marathon on October 3 to raise money for The Myton Hospices as thanks for the care the Myton at Home team gave to his mum at the end of her life.
