Well, Taylor Swift is getting a head start on St. Patrick’s Day by dating a Leprechaun. Apparently Taylor recently spent a night in her London hotel room with singer/songwriter/pot-of-gold finder Ed Sheeran until 4 a.m.
If you don’t know Ed, here’s a crash course.
He’s a 22-year-old ginger British singer/songwriter with a single called “Lego House” (We get it! You live in a small house!). He’s the guy that was singing a duet with Elton John at the Grammys when you went to the bathroom, refilled your drink, called your mom back and paid a few bills. Oh. And he’s written songs for One Direction, that little band with a dude named Harry Styles.
But despite his friendship with Harry, seems like Taylor is calling dibs on Ed. Ed collaborated with Taylor on her song “Everything Has Changed” and they apparently dated this past spring. And he is touring with her for the next seven months as her opening act for her Red tour. Or should we say Green? (Probably not, it’s unlikely she will rename the tour.) And now he’s hanging out in her hotel until the wee hours of the morning. (Just for the record, I would’ve used the word “wee” there anyway, but I’m particularly pleased with how that worked this time around.)
So what could Taylor and Ed have been doing all night? Looking for four-leafed clovers? Granting wishes? Eating me Lucky Charms? Only Taylor and Ed know. But E! Online reports that Ed “looked pleased with himself” when he left Taylor’s hotel the next morning. The top of the morning, to be more specific.
So, Ed isn’t the cutest guy that Taylor has dated. But he is the reddest. And maybe the most dedicated to her career. And at 22, he’s pretty age appropriate.
All shamrocks aside, I hope this works out for Tyalor. It’d be pretty awkward to as your ex to help you write a break-up song about himself.
