Ed Sheeran Says He and Taylor Swift Share the Same “Insecurities”: “[She] Genuinely Gets It”
Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran are two of the most famous, successful, and decorated musicians of their generation. Between them, they have 16 Grammy Awards and have played live to millions of fans; they also have a combined Instagram following of about 300 million. But to one another, they’re just best friends who tease each other, support each other, and write music together.
Their friendship goes back a decade to when Sheeran found out Swift was a fan. They wrote some music together, and the rest, as they say, is history. In fact, Swift even had a hand in helping Sheeran get together with his now-wife, Cherry Seaborn, after years of missed connections. Talk about a best friend who truly has your back!
Over the years, Sheeran and Swift have taken dozens of cute photos and videos together, and they’re always quick to share a kind word or two one another. Whether it’s thanking the other during an award-show speech or shouting them out on social media, the praise never stops. And when it comes to the music they make together – well, it’s simply stunning. You can’t go wrong with such talented artists in the room.
As of 2023, their friendship is clearly still going strong, with Sheeran telling Zane Lowe that his conversations with Swift feel like “therapy,” per People. “She’s one of the only people that actually truly understands where I’m at,” the star added.
