Taylor Swift’s life is pretty much perfect. She’s the type of girl who has celebrity dress-up parties in honour of Shirley MacLaine’s birthday and lectures her Scottish Fold cat Meredith all about ACM voting regulations.
She also chills with Brit singer Ed Sheeran on her kitchen floor and sings with him while he plucks a few strings on the guitar. The duo sang his hit single “Lego House,” leading a lot of people who were already excited about them collaborating on material to LOSE THEIR MINDS.
Ed is penning songs for Taylor’s forthcoming album and based on their harmonies we know their singer/songwriter relationship will be freaking awesome.

“This is the first time I ever won this and I’m just losing my mind!,” Swift said. “We just got back from Asia and Europe on tour and thank you for this wonderful welcome-home gift and thanks for not forgetting about me. The fact that this is from the fans, you are the best thing that has ever happened to me! Ever!”
