Ed Sheeran won't drive his sports car because he thinks he looks like a ''t*t''.

The 26-year-old singer has amassed a vast fortune thanks to his musical success and among his extravagances was a flashy vehicle and a pub within the grounds of his house, which he decided to build because ''every dude'' he knew said they would do it if they had the money.

He said: ''I did what any bloke would do - sorted my family out, bought a sports car that I never drive because I look like a tit in it, bought a house and built a pub in my garden. I spoke to every dude I know and I was like, 'What would you do in the same position?' and they went 'Build a pub.' ''

The 'Castle on the Hill' singer had one of the biggest ''what the f**k'' moments of his life when he accidentally smashed his friend and fellow pop star Justin Bieber in the face with a golf club when he was drunk.

He recalled to The Guardian newspaper: ''We were in Japan. We'd been out to a dive bar. He just drank water and I got hammered.

''Then we went to a golf course, and he lay on the floor and put a golf ball in his mouth and told me to hit it out of his mouth. I was like, 'F**k, I need to aim this properly,' and I swung.

''And you know in films when someone gets punched, and you hear that fake sound, like a slap? But in real life when someone gets punched, you hear that dull thud, a bit sickening?

''I heard a sound like the last one, and saw his security guard looking at me like... I'd cracked Justin Bieber right in the cheek with a golf club.

''That was one of those 'What the f**k?' moments.''

Ed is stunned by the fact he is now able to call people he grew up admiring, such as actor Russell Crowe, his friends and doesn't care what people think about him being ''excited'' by that.

He said: ''I'm taking Gladiator out to dinner! How cool is that?

''But I'm a kid from Suffolk, not that attractive, literally grew up in the middle of nowhere, who now has the opportunity to move in a Hollywood world where people I've grown up watching want to hang out with me, and I'm really f***ing excited by that.

''I don't care what people think. They'd do exactly the same thing in my situation.''
