In a new cover story for Billboard magazine, Ed Sheeran confirms that he is allowed to hang out with Taylor Swift when she is with her huge group of girlfriends, but he had to throw in a humblebrag that may or may not be actually true.

“Of course,“ he says with a laugh when asked about being one of Taylor's "squad", “It’s not a vaginas-only club.“

Well..............okay then.

Ed also notes that it’s unique that two people in their situation are buddies instead of rivals. “It’s quite a weird thing for the #1 and #2 biggest-selling artists in the world to be close friends,“ he muses. “I don’t think that happens a lot.“

Wait, what? Ed Sheeran is one of the top-two artists when it comes to sales? Unless he's saying he's #1. I tried Googling to confirm this, and I don't know where he gets his information.........wait, maybe THAT is the scam! Say something that CANNOT be proven automatically means it's true, right?

Selling what, exactly? Albums? Singles? Concert tickets? Action figures? Nachos? All of it?

Ed also admits in the interview that he doesn’t know how to stream music and listened to his first Bruce Springsteen song two years ago.
