Ed Sheeran isn't bothered about being snubbed for a Grammy nomination, as he has other things to celebrate.

He told Billboard: "There's a very clear reason why that happened and it's bigger than me, like much bigger than me, and like it's just something that, again, it was just meant to be, that is the way that this year was meant to roll out.

"You know I'm not dying, it's not like I'm never gonna be nominated for a Grammy again. And I was nominated for two Grammys. This is why everything's meant to be. The week after that, I get an MBE from the palace, I go No. 1 on Spotify, I go No. 1 on Billboard, I'm about to have my second ever Billboard No. 1, like there's so many other things in the mix that counterbalance it.

"That's just the way I live my life. When one door closes, another door opens. You'll really, really send yourself mental if you think into things too much, and I'm just so easy-going when it comes to that."

Meanwhile, the 26-year-old singer previously revealed he has nine songs out of 40 that "he really likes" that might end up on his next record.

He shared: "I've got a rough outline of it - I've probably got about nine songs that I really like. But that could all change tomorrow if I think of nine new songs to replace them. There are about forty that I wrote I haven't used but nine I really like."
