Taylor Swift and fellow musician Ed Sheeran became, er, swift friends when they met while working on TSwift’s album Red last year, and sort of maybe had a little fling then, though Ed insisted to reporters at the time that they would never have a relationship because he wasn’t her time. Aw, Ed! Even gingers need love.
Anyway, since her break up with Harry Styles in December, Taylor is said to have become closer with Ed again – especially since he’ll be opening for her world tour later this year – and now they’re giving it a proper go. Hmm.
From The Sun:
Ed told The Sun last night: “We’re good friends.”
A source said: “Taylor has always loved Ed to bits. He’s just an adorably sweet guy who makes her laugh and feel really confident.
“Harry had that irresistible bad boy thing but Taylor has realised she would rather give it a go with a guy who can make her happy on a different level.”
Taylor and Ed spent the night together before last month’s Brits awards, according to reports in the US. They stayed up talking and putting the world to rights until 4am at Taylor’s London hotel.
Ed was spotted doing “the walk of shame” the next day, leaving the hotel in the same clothes he had been wearing the night before.
A source added: “Taylor made it clear when they go off on tour she wants Ed to be her boyfriend.
“He’s thrilled as he has always thought she’s amazing. When they split last year he always hoped they would get back together.
“They’ve both vowed not to have a nasty break-up no matter what happens.”
I mean, I sort of can’t really see it – it’s an odd coupling if ever there was one. Still, sometimes it’s the odd couplings that work the best. What do you think?

Harry Styles from One Direction is a total stud if you’re under 12 or over 50, but did you know that he’s also a budding philanthropist who uses his fame for positive causes like shoving Domino’s pizza down the gullets of the homeless? Well, he is! Harry’s friend and fellow musician (and unfortunate songwriter of the most awful single of 2012 and possibly the last decade, One Direction’s ‘Little Things’) Ed Sheeran put the world to rights in a recent interview, insisting that Harry isn’t all unkempt hair and sex addiction, but instead is a “really genuine guy”.
Take ‘er away, Ed:
“We were in LA about three months ago and he had a day off. He spent two or three grand on Domino’s pizza and drove around giving them out to homeless people. That’s an amazing story. People write about Harry in a negative way because of his love life, but he does stuff like that a lot. He’s a pretty genuine guy.” [via The Mirror]
He probably is a pretty genuine guy, for all I know. I just think it’s hilarious that Ed Sheeran felt the need to clear the air on Harry’s behalf, as if Harry himself even cares what anyone thinks of him. On a side note, this story is especially timely as today is Harry’s 19th birthday. No need to pretend you care, but you can use it as an excuse to eat an entire cake on your own tonight. Devil’s food with vanilla icing, please, if you’re making enough for two.
