Ed Sheeran is letting the past be the past.

The British singer is finally speaking out (sort of) about the song he released earlier this year that refers to an ex girlfriend cheating on him with one of his friends. Since its release, it's suspected that the song is about Ed's ex Ellie Goulding and One Direction's Niall Horan, although he didn't exactly confirm it. Then again, he didn't deny it, either.

But, regardless, he's over it at this point in his life.

Speaking to The Sun, Ed said: "I got over the anger the moment I wrote the song. It's a song that came at the time that I needed to write. That's the end of it. I'm grateful I could get a song out of it, to be honest. I don't feel it's about anyone any more, I'm not attached to that."

He concluded: "The moment you attach someone to a song it becomes more difficult to sing every night."

Ellie, for that matter, has never confirmed that the duo was ever dating, but they were spotted hand in hand at the MTV VMAs last year. Ed has previously said the song is "100 percent true."

"I was seeing someone for a bit, and then they ended up physically involved with one of my friends in the same hotel that we were staying in, while I was downstairs," he told the Mirror. "And I feel like: 'Treat people how you want to be treated.'"
