British singer and songwriter Ed Sheeran has become very good friends with Taylor Swift over the past few years, which has obviously led to a number of suggestions that the two of them are dating. However, this is not the case and every time the matter is brought up to either of the stars, they both insist that they are just good friends and that there is no romance going on between them.
Anyway, Ed Sheeran recently wrote and recorded the new song Don't and some of the lyrics from the song have led people to assume that the track is inspired by his relationship with Taylor Swift. One such lyric goes, "Me and her, we make money the same way/Four cities, two planes the same day," so you can kind of understand where they are coming from with their assumptions.
However, Ed Sheeran has no spoken out to deny these claims, insisting that the song has not been inspired by his relationship with Taylor Swift in any way, shape or form. Sheeran was chatting to Rolling Stone magazine about his new song, when he stated, "It's 100% not about Taylor," and when you listen to the rest of the lyrics to the song you can really understand that it is not.
The song goes on to really have a dig at the girl involved and criticise her for the way she ended things. If this songs was inspired by Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift's relationship then we find it hard to believe that they would still be friends. Meanwhile, the new Ed Sheeran album x will drop on June 23, with the new single Sing coming before it on June 1.
