Prince's new autobiography reveals he didn't like Ed Sheeran's music at all

Before he tragically passed away from an accidental overdose in 2016, Prince was working on writing his own autobiography.

Apparently he was still working on it just four days before his death.

After he died, Prince's co-write Dan Piepenbring made it his mission to finish the book, using the time he’d spent with Prince and combining it with lyrics, rare photos, scrapbook pages, and cartoons drawn by Prince.

That book, The Beautiful Ones, has officially been released and it includes some never-before-known information on the iconic singer.

Amongst discovering that Prince had plans on how to fix rascism, he had his first kiss playing happy families and his favourite movie was the animated film 'Kung Fu Panda 3', it was also revealed that the late singer really did not like the latest pop music.

In a section on his worries about the future of radio, Prince complains: "They keep trying to ram Katy Perry and Ed Sheeran down our throats and we don't like it no matter how many times they play it."

Prince's co-writer Dan Piepenbring admits: "To be honest I was so much in agreement with him on that subject that there didn't seem to be any more to say about it at the time. More than a grudge with a few artists in particular, what he was bemoaning was a culture that simply doesn't allow artists to colour outside the lines."
