Ed Sheeran has revealed he almost impaled Taylor Swift with a sword while sharing her private tour plane.

The A Team singer is on tour in the US with the country star, and decided to take his prized possession, a Lord Of The Rings sword given to him by Peter Jackson, on the road.

Ed told MTV News: "It's like a real sword. I got it shipped over, shipped over to Omaha, so I was bringing it back to Nashville and I think [Taylor] and her crew were weirded out by it anyway. They were just like, 'Why does Ed have a sword?'."

And they had even more reason to be scared when the plane took off and the sword slid off the table and almost stabbed Taylor.

Ed explained: "As the plane started to take off, it was on the table and it went like this. The plane is kind of taking off and it started sliding down and I was like, 'No!' It was just about to impale Taylor."

An important executive or critic will be impressed by your efforts. If you're offered an unpaid position as an intern or apprentice, take it. This will lead to professional opportunities you couldn't find through other channels.More
