Ed Sheeran: ‘Taylor Swift Is Like ‘The Office”
Ed Sheeran has spent several months hanging out with Taylor Swift on her 2013 Red Tour, and the British pop star has gotten to know country music’s sweetheart pretty well. His conclusion? She’s a lot like the TV series ‘The Office’ — and that’s a good thing!
“She’s got the most English sense of humor out of any American that I’ve ever met,” Sheeran answers when asked by E! News to dish a little-known fact about Swift.
“She’s just dry. She has a very dry sense of humor and Americans are usually like slapstick comedy, that’s the big thing, but she’s very English,” the singer further explains. “She’s like ‘The Office.’ English ‘Office,’ not Steve Carell—[Ricky] Gervais.”
Coming from a Brit, that’s quite a compliment!
Sheeran has spent most of this year in the U.S., but it doesn’t seem to bother him to spend so much time away from home — he even has a place in Nashville.
“It’s been fun. I’ve had a cool year,” he says. “I spent nine months of in in America — well, eight months going on nine — it’s been fun.”
Thanks to Sheeran’s experiences on the Red Tour, he’s dished that he would consider crossing over from pop music to make a country record at some point. He’s already off to a good start, thanks to his close relationship with Swift and their collaboration on the hit song ‘Everything Has Changed.’
In the meantime, Swift and Sheeran have another few months together out on the road. By the end of the tour, they are bound to be inseparable friends!
