Taylor Swift holds the No. 1 spot on both the pop and country radio airplay charts from this past week. Her new single ‘Begin Again’ topped the Country Aircheck/Mediabase Country chart, while her hit ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ spent its sixth consecutive week in first place on Billboard’s Mainstream Top 40 chart.
When Ed lost his mobile phone recently, Taylor was worried because it had a lot of videos of her on it. Taylor: ‘Someone’s gonna get videos of me having a conversation with my cat that I sent Ed.. and like YouTube videos and stuff like that. He’s one of my best friends.. Legitimately.’
Ed: ‘We had about two hours in Taylor’s dressing room, just me, Taylor and Elton, just chatting about everything going on in the music industry. Taylor being one of the biggest acts in the world at the moment and Elton being one of the biggest acts in the world ever, just watching that conversation was fascinating.
My competition at the moment is probably somebody like Taylor. It’s a healthy competition. She’s someone to aspire to because she’s one of the biggest touring acts and record-selling acts on the planet. That’s where I want to be and I’ll work up to that point.’
Taylor spent most of the night Feb. 19 with Ed Sheeran. A witness told E! News that the night before the 2013 Brit Awards Ed arrived at Taylor’s hotel. When Ed left the hotel, he got into the car that Taylor had used earlier in the day and was driven away: ‘Taylor and Ed briefly dated last spring. He thinks she is really cute and they have a great chemistry together.’
