Taylor Swift Praises Her 'Brilliant' Friend Ed Sheeran For Time's '100 Most Influential People' Essay

Taylor Swift can’t say enough nice things about her longtime pal Ed Sheeran.

The 27-year-old singer penned an essay about him for Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People feature in which she said that Ed‘s “protected by an impenetrable and ever-present armor of enthusiasm that has helped him endure any setback, letdown or underestimation.”

“A few years ago, in a rare moment of admitting feeling defeated, Ed said to me, ”I’m never going to win a Grammy.’ Yes, you are, I said. You’re going to sweep the whole thing one of these years,” Taylor wrote. “It was a few weeks later when he met me in a dance-shoe store in London, where I was picking out rehearsal outfits, and said, ‘You have to hear this.’ It was a song he’d just finished called “Thinking Out Loud,” which went on to win Song of the Year at the Grammy Awards in 2016.”

She added, “Congratulations to my friend Ed, for the legacy you’ve already built and the brilliant hook you probably just came up with five minutes ago.”

    Way to make his Grammy win about you, Taylor. She’s so vain and full of herself with minimal talent, might as well change her last name to ‘Kardashian’.

    I thought the same thing! Every time she praises someone, it makes it about herself

    he plagurizes music, how brilliant can he be? If you are sued once, thats fine, but the moment 3 distinct times he’s added other song writers after people find out that his song is similar to theirs, becomes plagurism. He lost a fan in me.

    Meryl Streep wrote a piece on Viola Davis for Times Most Influential People list, they worked together, but she didn’t make it about herself.

    She could’ve mentioned the song alone and his thought process, and not “oh he met ME when I was picking out MY rehearsal outfits and he told ME about the song and I told him that you will win the Grammy because I TAYLOR SWIFT am telling you that. I know that you, ed, friend of ME TAYLOR SWIFT will win the Grammy”
