Taylor Swift’s Squad Loses Another Member As Ed Sheeran Bonds With Katy Perry
Poor Taylor Swift! While we’ve been wondering if her famous #girlsquad is falling apart (which was seemingly confirmed when one of its most famous members totally bailed), now it looks like it’s more than just the gals that are stepping away. That’s because Ed Sheeran, one of Tay’s besties, has apparently bonded with Swift’s famous feuding foe, Katy Perry.
While Taylor Swift has stepped back from the spotlight for the time being (we can only hope to work on her next album), her enemy (too harsh?), Katy Perry, has been busy launching a new song, performing, and making the press rounds.
When Perry stopped by BBC Radio 1 for a pre-Brit awards interview, her session was crashed by Ed Sheeran himself. Plenty of teasing ensued, as the pair reminisced about their initial meeting back in the day. They went on to bond over their various Grammy losses with Katy noting (in a fake British accent, natch) that since they both have music out ATM they’ll both be up for awards next year. “We’ll be in the same Grammys cycle together!”
It looks like there will be plenty of more opportunities for these new friends to hang. But again, poor Taylor.
Watch the new besties in action in the full interview below.
What do you think about Ed Sheeran hanging out with Katy Perry? How far should loyalties lie when it comes to friendship? Let us know @BritandCo!

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
