Taylor Swift Recalls the Time Ed Sheeran’s Sword Obsession Nearly Killed Her

Since they’ve been hanging out together on The 2013 Red Tour, Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran have become besties. But, unfortunately, sometimes their definition of “fun” doesn’t exactly line up. For example, Sheeran loves to dangerously wave around a medieval sword, and Swift likes to, you know, keep her head and limbs intact.

In an interview with MTV, Swift chatted about her experiences with Sheeran’s sword. Are you as confused as we are? Allow us to explain.

“He got this sword… he went to New Zealand and got this sword,” she said. “The actual [director] Peter Jackson gave him a sword from a ‘Lord of the Rings’ movie. And he was obsessed with it to the point where like he would come into by dressing room waving it and then just leave,” she explained.

But after a few more questions, Swift never actually got to the story about how Sheeran’s sword nearly injured her. It sounds like the ‘Red’ hitmaker was actually being a little bit dramatic –not that that’s ever happened before!

“Or he’d just get it out on the plane and everybody is like, ‘We don’t know if that’s OK on a plane,’” she continued. “It’s a weapon, but it’s a medieval weapon [so] we don’t know, I don’t know,” she continued. “But he’s obsessed with stuff like that. He’s obsessed with Legos. He’s obsessed with swords, like axes, stuff like that. It was on the table [on the trip to Nashville] and it started to slide.”

Although the sword started to slide, it never actually touched Swift or her crew. So everyone is safe and sound, like her song of the same name. And, somehow, Sheeran’s medieval Lord of the Rings sword replica hasn’t been confiscated yet.

“I think [Taylor] and her crew were weirded out by it anyway,” Sheeran told MTV in a discussion about the sword. “They were just like, ‘Why does Ed have a sword?’ ”

Our sentiments exactly!

Sheeran has been opening for Swift on her Red tour, which has been taking the U.S. by storm. The domestic leg of the tour will wrap on Sept. 21, and Swift will head to Australia and New Zealand for November and December.
