Although Taylor Swift often catches a lot of flack for crooning about her ex-boyfriends and famously airing out her relationship troubles, her pal Ed Sheeran is definitely on her side! We got to chat with the 22-year-old Grammy-nominated singer before his performance at the Delta Air Lines’ private concert to kick off the opening of Delta’s redesigned Terminal 4 at JFK in NYC on May 23, where he defended Taylor’s breakup anthems. WATCH to see what else he had to say!

“I think you sing about what you know. There’s nothing worse than singing a song that has no relevance to you, and all the songs she’s singing have a deep relevance to her,” he said “They’re all personal.”
Ed, who’s currently touring with Taylor, said he’s having a great time on the road with the star. “She’s great to be on tour with, she treats me and the crew very well,” he said. “I’m really enjoying the tour.”
Although he’s currently busy touring, the singer is already thinking ahead to his next album — and revealed that it would be out next year! He also gave us a sneak peek behind what we could expect. “It’s not an album about fame and fortune, it’s an album about relationships,” he said.
We can’t wait for Ed’s next album — and we think it’s awesome that he’s so supportive of Taylor! Do you agree?
