Ed Sheeran was flying in Taylor Swift’s private plane to Nashville when his sword, given to him by the director of The Lord of the Rings Peter Jackson, nearly impaled Taylor while taking off:
‘It’s like a real sword, so I was bringing it back to Nashville and I think [Taylor] and her crew were weirded out by it anyway. They were just like, ‘Why does Ed have a sword?’, fair point, Eddy.
We imagine this was like the scene in Kill Bill when Uma Thurman’s taking her samurai home, but with more guitars. [The sword] started sliding down [the plane] and I was like, ‘No!’ It was just about to impale Taylor.’
