This ^ is an image from Taylor Swift’s InStyle UK photo shoot for the April issue. It doesn’t look too groundbreaking or anything, so let’s just skip ahead to what she said in the interview. Swifty was asked about writing so many songs about her exes, and Swifty admitted that she’s waiting for one of her exes to write a song about her in retaliation too: “If I’m gonna write songs about my exes they can write songs about me. That’s how it works. I’m not gonna complain about it. I’m not gonna sit there and say, ‘I’m the only one who can write songs about this relationship’. It’s fair game.” OMG, was that the point of all of this all along? Did Swifty just want some validation by having one of her exes write a song about her?! Did she want John Mayer or Joe Jonas or Harry Styles to write some kind of dude-anthem version of “You’re So Vain”?
In other Swifty news, she might have finally gotten her claws into Ed Sheeran. Ed and Taylor have been friendly for a while, and they’re going to be touring together this year too. There were even some hookup/dating rumors about them last October, just after Swifty and Conor Kennedy broke up. And now this… Swifty and Ed spent the night together in London? Oh, God.
Taylor Swift , be careful. Ed Sheeran might turn those tables and write a song about you! Well, that’s a bit presumptuous to say at this point. But Harry Styles’ ex did spend most of the night Feb. 19 with this adorably cute, redheaded British boy.
A witness tells E! News that the night before the 2013 Brit Awards (where Taylor performed in a wedding dress and then stripped down to a skintight black ensemble) Ed arrived at Taylor’s hotel and went straight to her room. From there, the twosome “stayed in the room, just the two of them, until around 4 a.m.,” according to a source.
When Ed left the hotel, he got into the car that Taylor had used earlier in the day and was driven away.
Another source tells E! News that Taylor and Ed “briefly dated last spring. He thinks she is really cute and they have a great chemistry together.”
They definitely get along well. Ed collaborated with Taylor on “Everything Has Changed ” which is featured on her Red album. They’ve also performed together and, of course, are both friends with One Direction’s Harry Styles.
On Ed’s birthday, Feb. 17, Taylor, 23, tweeted, “So. One of my favorite human beings on the planet turns 22 today. I hope @edsheeran has the most perfect show in LA tonight! HAPPY BDAYYYY.”
The next day, Ed tweeted Taylor back with a lyric from her song “22,” writing, ” I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling pretty damn 22 right about now.”
This is looking good. Fortunately for the future of catchy pop singles, Ed is opening Taylor’s tour this March through September. That leaves plenty of time for potential romance, possible breakups and so much more! We can’t wait.
Hm. I think… maybe? Could it be that Taylor actually found a guy that she has some kind of emotional, professional, spiritual and mature connection with? Because I think Ed and Taylor make sense on paper, definitely. The problem is that Taylor likes pretty boys. One of her top priorities for boyfriends is “good hair”. And while Ed is cute and talented, he doesn’t really fit the Harry Styles/Conor Kennedy/Jake Gyllenhaal mold. So while I don’t doubt that Tay-Tay and Ed cuddlefested until 4 am, I have doubts that Ed will be her next big romance.
Does anyone else think it’s interesting that Taylor has basically been camped out in London since the BRIT Awards? I think she’s still stalking Harry, I really do. She can’t believe that he dumped her and moved on so quickly. I also think she’s looking for another British boyfriend to wave around in Harry’s face.
