Taylor Swift Fools Around With Ed Sheeran In Instagram Video
The friendship between Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran is still going strong. The two recently collaborated in the song "End Game" from the album reputation.
In a short behind-the-scenes look at the filming of their new music video, Swift playfully accused her friend of "peacocking" but sitting near to the camera in order to look taller.
"I just want to start by saying that this is what he does, he tries to elevate himself geographically so he can seem better than me," Swift told the camera. "Experts will study this and say that you're, like, peacocking right now."
Peacocking is the term that means displaying oneself ostentatiously to attract attention. It was popularized by the pickup artist documentary The Game.
Sheeran totally denied the accusation, but later on, argued that Swift is always wearing her heels. However, even without the help of her sky-high pumps, Swift towers over Sheeran and practically everyone at 1.78 meters or 5 feet 8 inches. Sheeran stands at 1.73 meters of 5 feet 6 inches.
"End Game" is not the first time that Swift and Sheeran collaborated. They also did a duet in 2012 for the song "Everything Has Changed" and since then, the two have been close friends. Sheeran also appeared in Swift's 2013 Red Tour.
Beyond the microphone and the cameras, Swift and Sheeran are constants in each other's lives. The British singer-songwriter admitted that his first date with his soon-to-be-wife Cherry Seaborn was in one of Swift's famous Independence Day parties at her Rhode Island home.
"It was around then, and we reconnected," he shared. "I went on tour again, and then I went to Taylor's 4th of July party. I was texting [Seaborn], and she was like, 'I'm in Rhode Island at a 4th of July party,' and I was like, 'So am I.' I kinda said to Taylor, 'Can I invite one of my old schoolmates?' The rest is history."
In an interview last year, Swift compared her relationship with Sheeran to James Taylor and Carole King.
"We've gotten matching Scottish folds, made each other arts and crafts Christmas presents, vacationed with our families, and had each other's backs," she revealed.
Swift released the music video for "End Game" in January. It was directed by Joseph Kahn, the same man behind the music videos for "Bad Blood," "Blank Space," "Look What You Made Me Do," and "...Ready For It?" "End Game" also features the rapper Future.
