Ed Sheeran Explains Why He Won’t Hook Up With BFF Taylor Swift: ‘She’s Too Tall’.

That’s what we learned when Sheeran, 24, was asked on the show – point blank – if he’s ever “smashed” the 25-year-old Swift, a longtime friend, collaborator and bedtime texter. “No!” Sheeran quickly replied (at 15:52), fumbling a bit as he seems to collect himself for such a candid question.In a recent interview, the ‘Think Out Loud’ singer said that when he first met the ‘Blank Space’ singer, they were writing songs and happened to get along really well, but were never romantically involved, E!HOLLYWOOD – Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift have been the best of friends for years ever since they worked together on the 2012 track “Everything Has Changed,” off her Red album.

Well, it’s simple, says Ed. “Too tall,” he told Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club on Friday morning. “I don’t know man, I feel like we look like cast members of The Hobbit. The day before that interview, he was spotted with Taylor and her current boyfriend, Calvin Harris, heading into her New York City apartment … and yes, there is quite a height discrepancy. Ed has been single since splitting from 24-year-old Athina Andrelos in February, but was recently spotted kissing a mystery girl while partying in Las Vegas with Scottish DJ Calvin, 31, and One Direction star Niall Horan, 21. She was like, ‘Well, Carrie Underwood did it for this 11-year-old boy last week.’ “If Carrie Underwood kisses an 11-year-old boy, he goes to school the next day and they go, ‘Oh, you absolute lad!’ If a nine-year-old girl goes into school and goes, ‘I got kissed by a 24-year-old yesterday’, police are being called, you know?” – Bang Media AS tensions in the South China Sea between the United States and China continue to rise, the US Navy and Air Force are quietly gearing up to fight a war in the disputed region. Both sides say they don’t want any military confrontation on China’s extensive coastal waters, but both are acting as if a military conflict is increasingly likely.

Such is the thesis of an important new book just out, The China Dream, by Professor General Liu Mingfu, a leading Chinese military thinker and commentator who speaks with the voice of China’s military. History is replete with examples of rising powers eventually going to war with the status quo powers resisting their rival’s economic and military growth. By 2030, China will be the world’s largest economy in absolute terms (today it rivals the US in purchasing power parity), regaining the geopolitical primacy it formerly enjoyed until the 1500’s when it was the world’s leading economic power. He insists that China has no territorial ambitions and never will. “China suffered 470 foreign invasions within 65 years from 1840 to 1905,” asserts Liu, though incursions would be a more accurate term.

America, according to the undiplomatic Liu, is a paranoid giant, afraid of the outside world and addicted to the need for enemies abroad. “Americans feel lost without any enemy.” Washington’s occupation and despoliation of so many countries, notably in the Muslim world, generates endless enemies and a war psychosis. Liu asserts that China is devoted to peaceful relations, non-interference in other nations, and the desire to help build world prosperity, not just its own power or political system. What’s more, Liu modestly asserts, China should lead world development since Chinese are more intelligent and cultured than any other people and heirs to a 5,000-year history!

Interestingly, Liu depicts the 1950 Korean War as a major victory for China because it showed that an Asian nation could fight off the world’s greatest military power. Second, as I read Liu’s panegyric to Chinese greatness and peaceful humanism, I kept recalling Lord Acton’s wise maxim about absolute power corrupting absolutely.
