Ed Sheeran claims he brought one of the most famous artists in the world to his local pub and nobody noticed.

Speaking to the U.K. radio station KISS, Sheeran said, "I took Taylor [to my local pub] once" -- referring to his good friend Taylor Swift.

"But when I took Taylor there, no one really clocked [that it was her]," he added. "It was like a week later that the person behind the bar was like, 'Did you bring Taylor Swift in here last week?' And I was like, 'Yeah.' But no one clocked it at the time."

Swift and Sheeran most recently collaborated on a couple of songs for "Red (Taylor's Version)," which is coming out Nov. 19.

He also mentioned what happened when he took another fellow artist, British rapper Stormzy, to his local pub.

"It was one of those ones where the locals were trying to be funny with him," he said, "But it just ended up being like, 'Oh no, can you not say that, please.'"

While appearing on the show, Sheeran also spoke about his daughter Lyra, who just turned 1. He admitted to what he described as a major "dad fail."

Apparently, Lyra had never had any sugar up until that point, but he just happened to be eating a Magnum ice cream bar and he let her taste it.

"She loved it. She loved it." he laughed. "So yeah, that was kinda my fail 'cause now I've introduced her to the world of chocolate."
