Ed Sheeran Recalls a High Time with Snoop Dogg
In a chat with Conan O’Brien on the podcast Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend, Sheeran recounted the night he got “higher” than he ever expected. The story began with Sheeran and his wife, Cherry Seaborn, along with her mother, attending one of Snoop Dogg’s concerts in Melbourne, Australia. Following the show, they found themselves backstage, meeting the legendary rapper.
“I remember him meeting my mother-in-law, and he was like, ‘What’s up, queen?'” Sheeran said.
Sheeran fondly recalled, reflecting on the warm welcome Snoop extended to their group. It’s worth noting that Sheeran has developed a close friendship with actor Russell Crowe, who happens to share a tight bond with Snoop, often engaging in what Sheeran called “smoke-offs” and such.
While Sheeran confessed that he doesn’t typically partake in smoking weed, the atmosphere backstage that night was undeniably enticing. He described a scene where blunt after blunt was being passed around, and he felt a certain obligation to partake in the experience if only to say, “I smoked with Snoop Dogg.”
After a bit of wine and an engaging conversation with Snoop, the moment arrived. Snoop offered Sheeran some of the green stuff, and after a bit of hesitation, he decided to give it a try.
“I just remember looking at him and being like, ‘I can’t see right now,'” Sheeran hilariously recounted.
It was a feeling quite different from his norm, but Sheeran emphasized that he wouldn’t have expected anything less from the iconic rapper. After all, it wouldn’t be a true Snoop Dogg experience without getting a bit “higher” than usual.
