"I was a bit of a c–t," Sheeran said of the comments he made about the twerking singer in 2013. "I do feel bad about it as I'd be f–king livid if someone said that about me. My general point was I wanted her to sing the songs so people could see what an amazing artist she is. I just worded it wrong," he added in reference to the comments he made following Cyrus' controversial 2013 MTV Video Music Awards performance with Robin Thicke.
"I said [something] along the lines of, ‘You're voice is amazing, your songs are amazing, just stop twerking.' I didn't say it in the nicest way and I do genuinely love her music and think her voice is great," Taylor Swift's bestie added. "I don't really know what to do. I'll find a way to [apologize]."
Sheeran previously denied there was any beef between the two artists during an interview with Ryan Seacrest after the "Wrecking Ball" singer was caught calling Sheeran an "asshole" while he accepted the MTV VMA for Best Male Video of the Year this past August.
"Well, I don’t know why people were expecting that [high-five]. I’ve never met her," he told Seacrest when asked about the awkward gif-able moment. "There was a high-five between me and Scooter [Braun] because I know him, and that was the only high-five. I don’t know what people were expecting."
