Ed Sheeran Explains Taylor Swift's VMA F-Bomb: Watch Here!

She might have been caught dropping the f bomb on camera during this year’s VMAs, but now a friend of Taylor Swift has revealed the real reason behind her random outburst.

It was speculated that the “I Knew You Were Trouble” songstress was directing the statement to her ex-boyfriend, One Direction band member Harry Styles, but “Lego House” singer Ed Sheeran stood up for his good pal Taylor and admitted who it was actually directed at.

While Harry was on stage getting ready to announce the winner of the away for Best Pop Video, Taylor’s BFF Selena Gomez openly said that “We Can’t Stop” singer Miley Cyrus was probably going to take the award home with her, which caused Taylor to react poorly and just in time for the cameras to capture the moment.

After Taylor hit the spotlight, she immediately went to Ed and told him about the whole ordeal and stated, “I think I messed up.”

While Ed is close to Taylor, he also continues to stay friends with Harry even after he and Taylor's dramatic breakup. The trio posed for a photo op after the award show in which Ed stood in between the ex-lovers.
