During a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Ed revealed that he was high as hell when he was asked via text to do that song for The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug. It all went down when he took MDMA (aka molly) during a trip to his producer Jack Gossling's wedding in Ibiza.
''If I was ever going to try it, it would've been there...I thought the text wasn't real, because I was like, 'Is everything just great today?''' Ed revealed. Of course, it was real and he went on to write the track "I See Fire" for the film.
Ed's not the only singer to reveal they like to get their party on every once in awhile. Miley Cyrus openly smokes weed and sings about Molly all the time. She's even praised the drug before and so has Madonna (even though she never really admitted it).
Are you surprised Ed tried MDMA before? We're "eh" about the whole thing, but we do appreciate his honesty and openness.
On a lighter note, Ed recently covered Beyonce's "Drunk In Love" and it's freaking awesome. Listen here.
