The 'Love Story' singer says having Ed with her on tour has made it all feel incredibly fun on the road.

Taylor Swit says it was amazing of her good friend Ed Sheeran to come out and perform with her at the Summertime Ball 2013 yesterday (9th June), and says having him out on tour with her in the US makes it feel "less like work".

The 'I Knew You Were Trouble' singer performed a hit-ladden set at Wembley Stadium on Sunday before being joined by best friend Ed Sheeran to play 'Everything Has Changed' together, and says its the "most fun experience" having him with her on her 'Red' tour.

"It's been amazing, he's on tour with me in the US," Taylor revealed exclusively to Capital FM presenter Max. "I think for both of us being on tour together and being really close friends, it's the most fun experience you could ever have.

"Because, everybody's always really close on a tour, but if you start out and you're already close, it just makes it less like work, having your friends out there," the US superstar explained. "Especially the fact that he was coming out for this, because he didn't have to fly out here just to join me for one song.

"He's hilarious, I've kind of thought this before how he's a strange combination of being like an eight year-old child and an 80 year-old," Taylor suggested. "Because he's really hilarious and plays with lego and stuff and then he also has the best advice you ever ask for,' she added. "So he's like the perfect combination of both ends of the spectrum age-wise."

The 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together' singer also said the backstage atmosphere at the Summertime Ball 2013 was incredible because of how supportive all the artists are of each other.

"Everybody's so cool, like, all the other artists are just really real and it's always, you feel like people are rooting for each other," she added. "There's not much of a competition factor when you're walking around, everybody's just like, 'Hey, how are you? Good to see you, love your music!'."

The Capital FM Summertime Ball 2013 also saw performances from the likes of Justin Timberlake, Robbie Williams, The Wanted and Jessie J.
