Ed Sheeran enjoys gay Atlanta’s nude strippers

The gay club that attracts A-listers when they land in Atlanta – including Bravo's Andy Cohen, actor Leslie Jordan and rocker Jake Shears – has a new notch in its stripper pole: Ed Sheeran has discovered Swinging Richards.

During a tour stop, the hit singer-songwriter treated some of Taylor Swift's backup dancers to the nekkid that the popular club puts in your face. It was a birthday treat for one of the dancers, and Sheeran bragged about it this week to BBC Radio 1, according to Gay Star News.

‘I took all the background dancers to a gay strip club on the Red Tour,’ Sheeran said.

‘I wanted to go to Swinging Richards. I bought the dancer whose birthday it was, I bought them some [strippers.]’

The trip took place in 2013. Swift bolted to Nashville and missed the trek to the club. 

Sheeran left impressed. He should stick around for the bar's sudsy sexy carwash. Or when the dancers play with their hoses for Atlanta Pride. Or when Marcus Patrick strips down. Now that's impressive.
