Ed Sheeran Denies That Taylor Swift's 'Dress' Is About Him

The 'Castle on the Hill' crooner says in an interview that the 'best friend' in Taylor's 'Dress' isn't him as he doesn't have a buzzcut haircut.

AceShowbiz - Following the release of Taylor Swift's "Reputation", fans, of course, have started speculating about who each song is about. Even though the singer has warned fans not to do it for the album, everyone couldn't help but wonder whether "Dress" is about Ed Sheeran.

The speculation stemmed from the lyrics, "There is an indentation/ In the shape of you," and "I don't want you like a best friend." It led everyone to think that the 27-year-old songstress once tried to hook up with Ed. A fan wrote, "Taylor said something about being friends and wearing a dress. This is about ed Sheeran. She's in love with Ed."

However, Ed has put an end to the speculation. In an Instagram livestream with August Man, the "Castle on the Hill" hitmaker revealed that the song was not about him as he didn't fit the description of the "best friend" in the track. "I don't think it is [about me]," he said. "I think if you read into it.. it's not... You know, because she mentions someone with a buzzcut haircut, and I've never had a buzzcut haircut."


Taylor, on the other hand, has yet to respond to the speculation.

The rumor aside, Taylor's "Reputation" has sold more than 1 million units in the U.S. in its first four days of release, marking her fourth album to log a million-selling week. It follows her last three efforts such as "1989" (1.29 million), "Red" (1.21 million) and "Speak Now" (1.05 million).

In addition, the album has become 2017's biggest-selling album in the U.S., defeating the previous largest seller, "Divide (division sign)". Ed's latest effort, which was released on March 3, has sold a total of 919,000 units.

In support of the album, Taylor has announced the dates for her 2018 North American tour. The tour will start on May 8 in Glendale, Arizona and wrap up on October 6 in Arlington, Texas. The opening act for the tour has yet to be announced.
