Ed Sheeran Admits ‘It Was Very Easy’ To Hook Up With Members Of Taylor Swift’s Squad!

There’s no denying Ed Sheeran‘s close friendship with Taylor Swift.

In his new cover story for Rolling Stone, the 26-year-old opens up about his boozy lifestyle and his quick rise to fame after hopping on T.Swift’s 2013 Red Tour as an opener.

The Shape Of You singer said of his close bond with the 27-year-old:

“I was on the most amazing fucking tour in the world. I was just living in a country that I didn’t belong in, in a town I didn’t really know anyone. She would be there if everything ended for me. Taylor is kind of an anomaly in that sense. She’s omnipresent because she’s the most famous woman in the world, so she can’t make the decision to not be in the press. I always stick up for Taylor.”

And we guess being besties with Miz Swift comes with perks, as Ed remembered hooking up with some members of her famous squad:

“Taylor’s world is celebrity. I was this 22-year-old awkward British kid going on tour with the biggest artist in America, who has all these famous mates. It was very easy. ├óΓé¼┬ª I would often find myself in situations just kind of waking up and looking over and being like, ‘How the fuck did that happen?'”

The outlet interestingly pointed out that Katy Perry recently said of Ed’s secret success with the ladies:

“Everybody loves him, no one’s scared of him, they want to date him. They can have him.”

With rumors suggesting relationships with Selena Gomez and Ellie Goulding, one person Sheeran never hooked up with was Taylor herself.

He told the mag:

“I found that aspect quite lazy journalism. There wasn’t any truth to it whatsoever.”

Tay Tay chimed in, describing their friendship as:

“We’ve gotten matching Scottish folds, made each other arts and crafts Christmas presents, vacationed with our families, and had each other’s backs. He is the James Taylor to my Carole King and I can’t imagine a time when he wouldn’t be.”

Since then, the songwriter has romantically reconnected with his high school pal, Cherry Seaborn, who remains a constant in the busy singer’s life:

“It’s awesome meeting famous people. But that’s not life. That’s not reality. One day this will fucking end. And I know the one person that’s going to remain constant is Cherry. I should just enjoy this while it’s there, but not let it become my reality. Because that’s not the reality I want to live in.”
