In case you've been holding out hope that any of Taylor Swift's upcoming music might leak onto the Internet any time soon, you may want to give up.
In a recent interview with the Spanish website Capricho, Taylor's bestie and music collab partner Ed Sheeran explained that Taylor is so worried about possible music leaks (as she should be), that he never hears any of her unreleased tracks unless he's actually in the room when she plays them.
Apparently, there was one exception though: the duo's song "Everything Has Changed," which appeared on Taylor's album Red, was "sent" to Ed prior to its release - but not in the way you might think. To stay on the safe side, Taylor sent the song to Ed via an in-person delivery.
"When I did a song with her for her album, I was in San Francisco, and they sent someone with a locked briefcase with an iPad with one song on it," Ed told Capricho. "And they flew to San Francisco, and they played me the song that I'd done with her. And they were like, 'Do you like it?' And I was like, 'Yeah.' And then they took it back."
Considering how outspoken Taylor has been about ensuring artists are paid fairly for their work, this isn't much of a surprise. But seriously, who carried that brief case, and what exactly is their job description? Celebs, they're ~just~ like us.
