If you, like me, jumped to conclusions when you caught Ed Sheeran and Ellie Goulding holding hands last night at the VMAs, you’re not the only one.
The Twittersphere went crazy when the two Brits were spotted in a sweet moment at their seats:
But before you get too excited, Ellie squashed the rumors immediately, tweeting, “I love that holding hands with my friends means we’re an item,” she wrote. “In that case I am in many relationships. Lover not a hater. #whatthef*ck”
Ellie, darling, I adore you, but you have to understand why people would think that, right?
Minions, what do you think? Is it okay for girls and guys to hold hands if they’re just friends? What about if they’re dating someone else? Give me your two cents in a comment below!
