Taylor Swift’s and Ed Sheeran’s friendship is bigger than any competition.
The American Music Awards nominations are in – and Taylor, Ed and Drake are up against each other in the Favorite Album Pop/Rock category.
But they’re not going to let a competition stand in the way of their friendship. The long-time friends even spent some time candidly talking about it – while hiking.
Taylor posted a video on Instagram of her and Ed on a hike.
“You OK, bro?” the “Shake It Off” songstress jokingly asked the “Perfect” singer as they climb up a hill. He playfully flipped off his friend, who smiled at his response.
The video cuts to Ed saying, “Hey, Taylor, the AMA nominations just came out. It’s me, you, and Drake.”
The both tell each other (at the same time), “You’re going to win,” then, changed their minds, saying, “Drake’s gonna win.”
They continue to document their hike in the video, with Taylor teasing Ed, “It’s called exercise. Have you ever done cardio? Strumming a guitar doesn’t count.”
Whoever wins, Taylor’s caption has it right though. “Safe to say whoever wins the AMA for fav pop/rock album will be an artist who writes songs about love and heartbreak,YOU get to decide who it’ll be. Vote at the link in my bio @AMAs.”” she wrote.
The two artists are also nominated for other categories at the AMAs – Taylor is up for Favorite Female Artist Pop/Rock. Ed landed nominations for Favorite Artist Contemporary, Favorite Male Artist Pop/Rock, and Favorite Song Pop/Rock for “Perfect.” They’re also competing against each other for Artist of the Year and Tour of the Year.
