Ed Sheeran got pretty candid during a recent interview with New Zealand’s ZM Online. But he wasn’t loose-lipped about himself—he was talking about One Direction pal Harry Styles. 

A fan asked Sheeran whether “Little Things,” the One Direction song Sheeran wrote, was “written about One Direction’s little things.” Sheeran laughed and replied, “He [Harry] definitely hasn’t got a little thing, so no, I did not write ‘Little Things’ about [his] little things.” He continued, unprompted: “Did you know that Harry leaked that picture himself? He leaked his own picture. I think that’s amazing.”

The photo in question—which we won’t link to, dear readers, because you’re all adept at using Google—shows a young man standing nude in the mirror. “He was just like, ‘No one knows,'” Sheeran said, apparently referring to the size of Syles’ not-so-little-thing. And thanks to him… now we do.
