According to Saoirse Ronan, Ed Sheeran has been going around and blaming her for his “Galway Grill” tattoo.
The “Lady Bird” star denied the accusations in a recent appearance on “The Graham Norton Show”. Ronan, 23, explained exactly what occurred in Dublin, Ireland leading to Sheeran’s unfortunate ink.
“It wasn’t my idea to do the bad spelling!” Ronan insisted. “He’s been saying to people at his gig that I misspelled the word ‘Girl,’ but I didn’t! The tour manager in Dublin — we’d had a few drinks during the show, because he did two shows in Dublin after we did the music video.”
“The tour manager was going by, and he was like, ‘You know what would be gas? If you misspelled the word Girl and tattooed somethin’ else onto him,’” she explained. “So, we did ‘Galway Grill’ instead.”
Continuing, “We got a tattoo artist to come in at 12 o’clock at night, in Dublin, during a birthday party that was being had in town. This poor guy — he came in, and he was terrified. This poor fellow was having to tattoo onto Ed Sheeran’s arm, the arm he plays the guitar with.”
Ronan starred in the music video for Sheeran’s “Galway Girl” song.
