Ed Sheeran On Taylor Swift Rumours: 'I Felt Like A Stud'

However, Ed has insisted he wouldn't date her because of ex-Harry Styles...

Ed Sheeran has joked that the rumours about him dating Taylor Swift made him "feel like a bit of a stud."

During an interview with New Zealand's TVNZ, the Drunk singer addressed the reports that he was romancing Harry Styles' ex - admitting that he did spend the night with Taylor at her hotel, but they spent the time playing music.

Sheeran explained: "I did go to her hotel, I did stay there 'til four and I did leave in the same clothes. But I was playing her my new record. It was strictly that kind of thing... I'm a professional.

"The thing that impressed me with the media is that because they wrote about it, my mates believed it. The fact that people can believe it makes me feel like a bit of a stud, you know?"

He went on to add that he would never date Taylor out of respect for pal Hazza, claiming: "I've got to be honest because one of my best friends did date her. I'm not that kind of guy.

"But the fact that people believed it impressed me a little bit."

Sheeran is currently on tour with Taylor in support of her hit album Red, with the 23-year old bringing Ed out for a rendition of their collaboration Everything Has Changed in Omaha, Nebraska last night (March 13).
