Ed Sheeran is a proper English gent, so it's no surprise that the singer isn't a big fan of twerking. He thinks it's an activity best reserved for pole dancers. He's looking at you, Miley.

"Twerking is what strippers do," Sheeran explained to E! after the Grammys. "It's a fact. If you go to a strip club, not that I go to strip clubs, but if you go to a strip club, they twerk."

Somehow, we can't picture the ginger kid making it rain at an adult entertainment venue.

In trademark dry English humor, Sheeran continued, "You shouldn't be encouraging little kids to twerk. Stop doing this, Miley Cyrus, please. Stop. Stop. Sing 'Wrecking Ball.' 'Wrecking Ball' is a great song."

Miley doesn't exactly twerk to 'Wrecking Ball.' She just gets naked. But we get his sentiment. Her nakedness and her antics detract from the power of the song. And even when he is being semi-critical, Sheeran still sounds polite. Oh, how we love him.

In other E. Sheeran news, have you seen his new kitten, Graham? Beware. You may very well OD on cuteness.
