Sheeran: Swift is perfect musician
Ed Sheeran has hailed Taylor Swift as "the perfect example of what musicians should be".
The 21-year-old British singer-songwriter has been working in the studio with US country music star Taylor, 22, on her new album Red, and while he kept details of their collaboration top secret he said the experience was a "breath of fresh air".
Ed said: "As a person, Taylor's such a sweetheart. She's the perfect example of what musicians should be and how they should work and react. She just loves music and she's not in it for anything else."
The A Team singer is also working with One Direction on their second album.
He wrote Moments, which featured on the boyband's hit debut album Up All Night, when he was just 15.
Ed said: "It was always a song that I always intended for a boy band. I was like, 'This is my boy band song, but I'm never going to sing it.' I just held on to it for a long period of time."
