Taylor just liked these on Instagram 9/7/14 (x)
Taylor Swift - Road to Vegas
"Ed has heard a lot of the songs on the album but he hadn’t heard the first single, because the time that I was going to play it for him it was the day that ‘Sing’ had just come out’. I said, ‘no, we’re not making this about my music today, it’s all about ‘Sing’ today’, so now he’s finally heard it alongside the rest of the world," she added. "He has heard a lot of the new album, he’s got the inside scoop. I doubt he’ll tell though!"
We’re getting ready for the #VMAs, are you? http://Smarturl.it/TS1989
It’s hard to say which time he’s talking about. He’s one of the most charismatic people I know, so he doesn’t need much help. But, you know, any time that I can be a good bro-friend, I’m there to step up to the plate. He’s one of my best friends, and honestly the most talented person that I know. I feel very lucky to have him in my life.
Taylor on being a wing-man for Ed (x
Ed: “She’s a very good person, I think that people know that she’s nice. I respected her as a musician and when I met her I just respected her as an individual.”
Taylor: “We wrote several times and the first time we wrote we sat in a hotel room in like, I think Arizona, and we just wrote and wrote and wrote and wrote and just like, laughed and had the best time and became really close friends.”
[Taylor] owns the US pop scene. She knows how to do it. In England I was a commercially successful artist, but I came to the US as an alternative artist playing shows with Snow Patrol. She [Taylor] not only opened doors for me in the pop world but told me how to do it. You have to do all radio shows at Christmas and do all those sessions. The key is not to lose that.

Radio stations aren’t going to play you if you show up late. You have to be respectful and do your job. You can guarantee that Taylor will always be professional and polite, and if you want to be as big as her, you have to be just as professional and polite. If you’re not, radio stations will say, ‘Hmmm, he wasn’t very nice to us yesterday, but she was lovely, so we’re going to play her records.’
REMEMBER TO BUY ‘X’ IF YOU HAVEN’T YET!
