But as it turns out, Harry Styles' mutual friend with Swifty, Ed Sheeran, must have some sort of magical touch because he got the two to actually snap a pic together after the awards show!
The pic has been circulating all over the freakin' Twiiterverse and is rumored to have been taken at Robin Thicke's post-VMAs party.
And from the look of it, we'd almost say the two look comfortable posing sort of near each other!
But then again, maybe this was snapped before Harry realized what Swifty said while he presented? Or maybe both were so blinded and confused by Miley Cyrus' performance that they weren't thinking straight!
Whatever is going on, we bet Ed was happy to not have to spend all night running back and forth between his bestiez!
