British singer songwriter Ed Sheeran has been repeatedly linked to US singer songwriter Taylor Swift on a romantic level but they have both insisted that they are just good friends. Ed has now admitted that he would never even consider dating Taylor Swift, as he is good friends with her ex-boyfriend Harry Styles.
Sheeran was being interviewed by New Zealand broadcaster TVNZ, when he explained, "I've got to be honest because one of my best friends did date her. I'm not that kind of guy. But the fact that people believed it impressed me a little bit."
He also admitted that he did spend the night in Taylor's hotel room, but they just played music, "I did go to her hotel, I did stay there 'til four and I did leave in the same clothes. But I was playing her my new record. It was strictly that kind of thing. Literally, I went in there and we passed the guitar back and forth and played songs to each other."
Ed also revealed how his friends believed the media hype about him and Taylor, "The thing that impressed me with the media is that because they wrote about it, my mates believed it. And my mates are texting me being like 'is it true?' so I said it wasn't but the fact that people can believe it makes me feel like a bit of a stud, you know?!"
While both Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift insist that they are just good friends and that's all they ever will be, they will soon be heading of on a six month tour together, so who knows what could happen?
