WATCH: Ed Sheeran Steals Taylor Swift’s Thunder By ‘Peacocking’ In New Instagram Video

Ed Sheeran, 5’8″, only stands 2 inches shorter than long-time pal Taylor Swift, 5’10”. However, he takes any chance he gets to make himself appear a little taller and  bigger.

Swift posted a new video to her Instagram where she jokingly teased her fellow friend for purposely sitting closer to the camera.

“I just want to start by saying that this is what he does, he tries to elevate himself geographically so he can seem better than me,” she says playfully. Sheeran, who isn’t afraid to admit his tactics, doesn’t deny it. He totally agreed.

According to Swift, experts would probably call this strategy ‘peacocking’, thus alluding that Sheeran was attempting to resemble a peacock.The expression derives from men who intentionally extract a pretentious persona to, therefore, attract attention.

“It’s only because you wear f—ing heels all the time,” Sheeran fired back. Swift, however, proved him wrong by raising her leg, exposing her flat sneakers.
