Ed Sheeran admitted during an interview with Australian radio station Nova FM that he once accidentally pooped his pants while performing.

When the radio host asked Sheeran if he ever let out gas onstage, the star responded, “all the time,” before he launched into the TMI story.

“I actually misjudged a fart one time, which ended up being a shart,” he said. “It was like midway through a performance and I was really lively, and then halfway through I was like, ‘Alright, I’m just going to stand still for the rest of this performance, and hope it’s over soon, and then go home and throw these trousers out!'”

The 24-year-old said the accident was likely the result of jet-setting between several international performances. “I was very ill,” he told the Aussie station, laughing.
