Taylor Swift bigs up Ed Sheeran for Time Magazine

Taylor Swift Ed Sheeran1 Ed and Tay-Tay: BFFs forever

Can Ed Sheeran do anything wrong?

Not in the eyes of BFF Taylor Swift or, you know, Time Magazine.

Sheeran has been named among the magazine's 100 Most Influential People of 2017.

And Tay-Tay was on hand to write a tribute about the Thinking Out Loud star and his cultural significance.

She wrote: "A few years ago, in a rare moment of admitting feeling defeated, Ed said to me, 'I'm never going to win a Grammy.'

"Yes, you are, I said. You're going to sweep the whole thing one of these years'."

She added: "It was a few weeks later when he met me in a dance shoe store in London, where I was picking out rehearsal outfits, and said, 'You have to hear this.'

"It was a song he'd just finished called Thinking Out Loud, which went on to win Song of the Year at the Grammy Awards in 2016.

"Congratulations to my friend Ed, for the legacy you've already built and the brilliant hook you probably just came up with five minutes ago."

We've all got a friend like that though haven't we?
