Ed Sheeran ditched his phone a year ago: "It's so much less stress"

If you ever want to give Ed Sheeran a call, you’ll be out of luck. The singer admitted on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Tuesday that he doesn’t have a phone.When he took a break from the spotlight at the beginning of last year, he made the resolution to ditch his cell -- and he’s sticking to it."I still don't have a phone number," Ed says. "I bought an iPad and I just work off of email. It's so much less stress. I don't wake up in the morning and have to answer 50 messages of people asking for something." So…

As you may recall, last year, Adele's Grammy performance of her song "All I Ask" was marred by technical issues beyond her control.  Appearing shortly afterwards on Ellen, Adele responded to the host's question of whether or not she had wanted to start over by saying, "Next time…
