"We're still friends. We went on a few dates, and it was really fun. He's a really, really lovely guy. He's got the biggest sense of humor, he's very caring, and I see him as a genuine friend in the industry."
But she once again denied ever having a relationship with Ed Sheeran:
Well, it turns out that excitement was super genuine, because on Wednesday — the ginger singer's 25th birthday — the pop princess took to Instagram to share a sweet story about their famous friendship and rave about his big win.
"Looking back on the highlights of my life, there's a moment I'll never forget from a day in London about two years ago. I was in town to play the O2 and I was out shopping on my day off. My friend Ed Sheeran met up with me in this little shop where I was buying ballet shoes. He walks in and says 'you have to hear this new song. I think it's the best one I've ever written.' And then, as usual, he pulls out his phone and gives me headphones. I sat there on a bench in that store and heard Thinking Out Loud for the first time, as little kids were picking out tutus and leotards next to us. Little did we know it would go on to be first dance song at countless weddings all over the world, become Ed's biggest hit, and eventually go on to win him Song of the Year at the 2016 Grammys."
The lovely lady was so humbled that the songsmith wanted to include her whenever he finished a new number! Tay continued to gush:
To call Bruno Mars the life of the party is an understatement!
On Monday night at the Grammys, Bruno celebrated his song of the year and record of the year win by getting all his pals at the award show DRUNK. To make the situation even more amazing, Mars used a personalized flask to get the party going — how cool is that?!
