We are obsessed with Ellie Goulding – not gonna lie. She puts together a good album and we’re all about her girl power. The 29 year old singer is covering Seventeen Magazine and in it she talks all about her relationships.
Here’s what we learned:
[highlight]On being an inspiration:[/highlight] “I don’t want girls to get to my age and feel like they’re not pretty enough, not thin enough, or they’re not good enough for something or someone. I’m naturally compassionate—that’s something I really like about myself. I always consider other people before myself, and I think that’s what I try to do with my music. I want to write lyrics that girls can relate to. I’m a girl; I know how hard it is… If girls are anything like me when I was a teenager, then I want them to know everything is going to be okay.”
[highlight]On going out with One Direction‘s Niall Horan: [/highlight]“We’re still friends. We went on a few dates, and it was really fun. He’s a really, really lovely guy. He’s got the biggest sense of humor, he’s very caring, and I see him as a genuine friend in the industry.”
[highlight]On whether she has dated Ed Sheeran: [/highlight]“We’ve known each other for a few years. I think he’s a really nice guy and a brilliant musician. We’ve bumped into each other and we’ve hung out and stuff, but the thing is if I hang out with someone, it’s instantly like I’m ‘dating’ them. We were never in a relationship. My song is not about him.”
The magazine hits shelves March 15th.
