Ed Sheeran reveals his sword "was just about to impale" Taylor Swift during a bizarre incident.

The British singer-and-songwriter serves as the opening act on the American country songstress' Red concert tour.

During a recent flight on Taylor's private jet, Ed brought along a sword he got from director Peter Jackson.

"It's like a real sword. I got it shipped over, shipped over to Omaha, [Nebraska], so I was bringing it back to Nashville, [Tennessee] and I think [Taylor] and her crew were weirded out by it anyway. They were just like, 'Why does Ed have a sword?' " he recalled to MTV News.

"As the plane started to take off, it was on the table and it went like this," Ed described as he motioned the ascent with his hands adding, "The plane is kind of taking off and [the sword] started sliding down and I was like, 'No!' It was just about to impale Taylor."

Ed is happy Taylor is alive, but he reveals the good pals haven't been hanging out together very often during the tour.

Instead Ed is spending a lot of time with other personnel.

"I got taken out by all of Taylor's dancers to like this, it was like a dive bar, blues club," he shared.

"You need to start going out with dancers because they turn every situation into an episode of Glee. It's incredible. You're just there and you kind of walk in and suddenly it's strike a pose on the table and then do this kind of dance, and there's like one girl who's grinding up against this old harmonica player and they're all doing these dances."
