“I think everyone knows that Taylor has done nothing wrong in that situation,” the 24-year-old entertainer told The Daily Telegraph of his former tour-mate.
“She didn’t nominate herself for the awards. It’s not her fault. She just made some good videos and people think they’re good,” Ed continued. “I think the Minaj point is a bit redundant, her point is that you have to be skinny and white to get a Video of the Year nomination, but Beyonce’s ‘7/11? is in there, and that is celebrating the female figure in every form.”
Later, Ed took to Twitter to clarify his comments: “I was making a point about body image and not race, whilst sticking up for a mate, I definitely said it wrong though, apologies.”
