He’s the most talented artist in the country – but Ed Sheeran admits he has "learned a lot" from Taylor Swift.
The singer has paid tribute to his friend Taylor – who he has record with and supported on tour – and says she helped him massively when he first went to America to crack the US market.
He said: "She owns the US pop scene. She knows how to do it.
"In England I was a commercially successful artist, but coming into the US as an alternative artist playing shows with Snow Patrol.
"She not only opened the door into the pop world but showed me how to do it."
Ed, 23, has spent a lot of time with Taylor, 24, at her house and has revealed the stunning pop star is a great cook and especially skilled at baking.

He said: "I did a session in a Phoenix hotel room then flew to LA to record it. Brought in an idea for song then we finished it.
"Next time I went to her house and she cooked an apple pie. She cooks really good s**t, man. Then she gets out this little Taylor guitar and she’s like I’ve had this idea for this song…"
The genius singer-songwriter will also be celebrating the launch of new Solo2 headphones for Beats by Dr. Dre with a new advert.
