    Ed Sheeran is a mega talented singer and songwriter, but before he got famous, he skipped showers and would ride the Tube aka the London subway aimelessly while unclean.

    "Sometimes when I didn't have a place to shower, I'd wait for the Tube to open up at 5 AM and sit on the Circle Line and go round and round. I wouldn't shower," he said.

    While he was honing his craft, Sheeran, now 22 and on tour with Taylor Swift, said, "I couch-surfed and floor-surfed sometimes. Once I was staying at this student house and had a shower, but didn't have a towel."

    He still found a way to dry off which required a little imagination. "This lad had a Green Day poster, I literally just scraped the water off with it," he said.

    Where there's a will...
