Ed has a song that he’s obsessed with called Bad Blood, and Ella likes a song called Welcome To New York - that’s her favourite I think. It’s awesome because both of them are such amazing songwriters so when they kind of raise their hand and go “that one, that one, that one”, it’s a cool moment.

You’re going to have people who are going to say ‘Oh, you know like, she just writes songs about her ex-boyfriends’ and I think frankly that’s a very sexist angle to take. No one says that about Ed Sheeran. No one says it about Bruno Mars. They’re all writing songs about their exes, their current girlfriends, their love-life, and no one raises a red flag there.
