"She's super-intelligent," the British pop star told the magazine. "I think that's why it works so well. And we do the same type of job so we get that with each other."
He also credits his mother and sisters for shaping him to be the young man he is today.
"I enjoyed the womanly influence," he said. "I have a lot of respect for women because of them. They are so strong, powerful, and do everything themselves."
Newsflash: Women rock. Of course, so do men who recognise that.
