Ed Sheeran Reckons He And BFF Taylor Swift ‘Take Things Too Far’
But what does he MEAN?!
Chatting for his fancy new GQ cover interview, the singer explains that the reason he wants to be the best is all because of people telling him he can’t be.
‘There’s an underdog element to it. Taylor was never the popular kid in school. I was never the popular kid in school. Then you get to the point when you become the most popular kid in school – and we both take it a bit too far.
‘She wants to be the biggest female artist in the world and I want to be the biggest male artist in the world. It also comes from always being told that you can’t do something and being like, “F you. I can.”‘
There really is nothing quite like sticking it to the negative Nancys than becoming one of the biggest male solo artists on the planet, right?
And we’re sure Ed’s rise will only continue to get more astronomical, as he prepares to embark on quite the last minute tour across the planet later this year.
