OK, so we’ll admit it — Taylor Swift tends to have some… mature hobbies. Rather than go out on the regular like other twentysomethings, Taylor prefers to keep things chill. She is far more likely to be spotted watching Law and Order on Netflix than she is stumbling drunk out of a club, and that’s one of the things we love most about her.
And her BFF Ed Sheeran definitely shares this opinion. In a recent interview with Time, Ed opened up about his “crafty” friend and her old lady tendencies.
“I know she’s 24, but she’s sort of middle-aged woman trapped in a 24-year-old’s body,” Ed said. “She hangs out with her cat and sews things.”
Okay, this is definitely true. Yes, Taylor has been known to host Pinterest-themed crafting parties from time to time. And yes, she does needlepoint. And paint with watercolors. And occasionally go antiquing. And bake cookies… a lot. And one day, she will make an awesome grandma.
Taylor’s cat lady chic, though — and who wouldn’t want that? In fact, adopting her new kitten, Olivia Benson (a shout out to Mariska Hargitay’s character on her favorite show) pretty much sealed the deal for good.
And Ed (who’s the owner of a pretty adorable cat himself) also admits that his age can range from old to young on any given day, so it’s no surprise that he and his former Red tourmate are so close.
“My soul age differs from day to day,” Ed said. “It can be 8 or 80 … If I’m working it’s usually pretty spot-on for work, but if I’m with my friends and the clock’s off, I’ll go back to being young.”
