Despite a history of emotional and confessional songs, Ed Sheeran rarely names names. But one of the tracks from his latest album X is so obviously about his ex-girlfriend Nina Nesbitt (the song is called "Nina") that she couldn't deflect the speculation about their past relationship. Now, she has finally opened up about how it feels to be the subject of Ed's music.
Nina says that, even though she was shocked to see "Nina" on the album, she knew Ed wrote a song about her.
“He warned me it was happening, but I didn’t know it was going on the album,” she told the Scottish Evening Standard.
With lyrics like "you should go, Nina/'cause I ain't never coming home, Nina/oh, won't you leave me now," the song is pretty intense, and maybe a little bit harsh. Still, she claims she's not angry with Ed, especially because she's written more than a few songs about their relationship too.
"I’m not really bothered. It was quite a long time ago and it’s a good song. I have written quite a few songs about Ed that are on the Peroxide album and people can probably guess which ones," Nina said. "I’m not going to go into detail about it but we are both songwriters, so naturally we were going to write songs about each other. It was a long time ago now and we’ve both moved on.”
We're glad she doesn't hold it against him!
Do you think that everything is cool between Nina and Ed? Who do you think Ed will write a song about next? Let us know in the comments!
