Imagine being at the bar on a Saturday night and having the one and only Taylor Swift introduce you to the woman you're going to marry. Now, it's safe to say that in most of your fantasies, Taylor Swift is the woman you're going to marry, but, cool it, guys. That's not the point of this anecdote. Turns out, T Swift is quite the little cupid, at least that's what Ed Sheeran has been saying. He explained that the "Look What Your Made Me Do" singer is the whole reason he and his fiancé, Cherry Seaborn, are together.
OK, y'all ready for this whirlwind romance? So, Ed Sheeran and Cherry Seaborn actually went to school together back in the day. That said, they didn't reconnect until one of Taylor's infamous July 4th parties — you know, the ones where she invites all her model/celebrity BFFs and they dance around in red, white and blue. Ed explains in behind the scenes footage of Swift's "End Game" video:
"So the story was, I was at Taylor's party, and then a girl I went to school with who's really cool ended up being in Rhode Island. She's like, 'I'm in Rhode Island!' And I was like, 'Taylor, can she turn up?' And you were like, 'Yeah!' And here we are." To which Taylor added: “Ugh, she’s the coolest."
Of course, Ed being the debonair lyricist that he is, incorporated the story into one of this songs. Geez, some guys are just born supremely smooth — hint: it's always the artsy types. The lyrics read, "I’ve made mistakes and made some choices, that's hard to deny / After the storm, something was born on the Fourth of July." What a guy! Sigh, this makes us even more depressed about being single on Valentine's Day. Hey, Taylor, if you're reading this, mind helping a few guys out? Thanks.
