Taylor Swift Made Ed Sheeran a Drake-Themed Needlepoint

Taylor Swift's transformation from lovelorn teen millionaire into your kinda hip aunt who enthusiastically participates in Revolutionary War reenactments and is very content with her life has reached a glorious apotheosis. It has occurred in the form of a Drake-themed needlepoint created for her friend Ed Sheeran.

(Notably, this is not the first rapper-themed 18th century craft she made for the singer-songwriter: last year, she made him jam with her fav Kanye quote emblazoned on the label).

As you can see in this still from the MTV documentary "9 Days and Nights of Ed Sheeran," this is a needlepoint drawing of Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift scaling some stairs. They started at the bottom, and now they're here — sort of in the middle of the stairs, having a melodic conversation about "CATS" and "LEGOS."

Upon the stairs, it says, "THE STRUGGLE IS REAL." It's unclear what struggle that is — from Swift and Sheeran's careers, I would posit that it's the struggle to look as good-natured as possible whilst strumming a guitar. Or the struggle to distance oneself from John Mayer. Video at the link. [MTV]

Rihanna and Chris Martin maybe went on a date at an Italian restaurant in Santa Monica. Quoth a witness: "They were leaning into each other, laughing and being flirty. Rihanna kept pushing her hair out of her face and Chris appeared to almost be whispering in her ear." OOoOoOOOh. [x17]
