Ed Sheeran thinks close pal Taylor Swift is like a "middle-aged" woman. The Don't singer – who received a Drake-inspired needlepoint from his singer friend and apparent craftswoman – thinks that the 22-year-old singer's choice of hobbies makes her seem old beyond her years.

"I know she's 24 but she's a sort of middle-aged woman trapped in a 24-year-old's body. She hangs out with her cat and sews things," Ed told TIME Magazine.

The British singer-songwriter showed off his 'Sweeran' tapestry on MTV documentary 9 Days and Nights of Ed Sheeran, but admitted he never made a gift in return for the canvas, which hangs on his wall.

"No, but I'm not a very crafty sort of person. She's very crafty," said Ed, who just had his second and latest album, x released.

As to how old the 23-year-old singer is at heart, he claimed it changes day to day, depending on what he is doing at the time.

"My soul age differs from day to day. It can be eight or eighty. It just depends on what I'm doing. If I'm working it's usually pretty spot-on for work, but if I'm with my friends and the clock's off I'll go back to being young."
