Meg's Daily Dish

As we previously told you, “Time” has come out with their annual list of the 100 Most Influential People, and Ed Sheeran made the cut. Well, in the mag, Ed’s good friend Taylor Swift shares an essay on the singer, recounting how he was always destined to become a great songwriter.

"Whether by choice or an unconscious evolution, when he decided on his musical ambitions, Ed became less of a boy and more of a tank," she writes. "He is protected by an impenetrable and ever-present armor of enthusiasm that has helped him endure any setback, letdown or underestimation. His reaction to any idea that fails is to almost immediately come up with a new one.” She adds, “He’s like a fighter who pops back up on his feet before you even noticed he’d been knocked down."

Finally, Taylor congratulates Ed, "for the legacy you've already built and the brilliant hook you probably just came up with five minutes ago." Source: Time


Ladies, Zac Efron is ready to settle down. The 29-year-old actor says that as he gets older, he thinks more and more about finding that one special lady.

"I didn’t think much about settling down until recently," Efron explains. "Now that I’m getting closer to my 30s, I’m around some great relationships and I’ve seen expert couples at work."

What's the tip he's picked up from these romantic successes? Working on yourself first. As Efron puts it, "I’m realizing that you have to find your own happiness before you can make somebody else happy."

Efron was most recently linked to model Sami Miro. The two split after two years together last April.
