English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran is having surgery to repair a burst eardrum.

“I have to have an operation in January on my ear because I stupidly jumped off a yacht really high up and smashed it,” he told the Australian radio network Nova Entertainment, Billboard said Thursday. “I landed wrong and it burst my eardrum so I have to go and get a graft, which means I’m not allowed to fly for a while, so it’s kind of good; it means I have to stay at home.”

The 24-year-old artist’s most recent album, last year’s “x” went platinum and yielded three top-10 singles.
