I’ve been a massive Ellie Goulding fan since way back in 2010, before she even signed with Polydor – and definitely long before she sang at Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s wedding and started getting crazy famous. It’s kinda strange (but wonderful) to see how much she’s grown over those few years – to the point where she’s pretty much the central musical focus of the Divergent soundtrack!
Several tracks from Ellie are featured in the movie and on the soundtrack, but the original one writing specifically for it is called ‘Beating Heart’. It’s a pretty great song, and while the lyric video won’t give much away, if this is the ambiance of the movie, I’m totally into it.
What do you think of ‘Beating Heart’? Are you an Ellie fan? Will you see Divergent? SO MANY QUESTIONS!

Lady Gaga is my goddamn queen right now. Look at her, showing up all normal (for her) and stuff! This is exactly what she needed to wear to the 2013 MTV VMA’s. I’m getting Angelina Jolie 2000 Oscars flashbacks. And a little Vampira:
She looks so pretty. So sane. Please let me like you again, Gaga. Please. (Note: this was written before her performance. Who knows how I’ll feel after I see that.)
See the best, worst, and WTF of the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards fashion below! And there were so many WTFs. I couldn’t choose just one worst or WTF. I don’t think you can blame me either.

I’ve been waiting for an excuse to write about my girl Ellie Goulding on EBG and bring her to the mainstream gossip sites for a while now, and this was the perfect opportunity: she’s apparently involved with One Direction‘s Niall Horan. You know, the Irish one. Reports started circulating that Ellie and Niall were hooking up when they were seen together at the V Festival in the UK earlier this month. No one’s really said anything about it, but I figured it was a non-starter anyway since Ellie is a 26-year-old hottie with a body (yes, I hate myself for saying that) and Niall is… Niall. A 19-year-old boyband member, and not even the good one. Who likes Niall, anyway?
Yes, I’m being tongue in cheek about nearly all of that. But in all seriousness, I thought this was a bunch of BS, but from what Ellie recently told The Mirror (while partying in Ibiza, no less), I’m not quite so sure.
Speaking for the first time about the relationship, the singer-songwriter – at number one with Burn – turns a deep shade of red.
She starts giggling: “Oh God, I knew this was coming! I just can’t talk about Niall.
“I won’t ever talk about my love life any more because it’s always then gone wrong when I have in the past. But I will say this, I’ve definitely had some ‘interesting’ tweets since the story came out.
“Thankfully I’m able to take it all with a pinch of salt because I’ve been told to be that way. I genuinely mean this – I don’t hate on anyone, but at least One Direction fans are very passionate and my fans are very passionate too. I’d hate it if people didn’t care about what they thought.”
Oh, girl… no. Or yes, I mean. Whatever floats your boat. (I’m working on my zen side today.) I just think this is a downgrade. Less of a downgrade than when she was dating Skrillex, but I think that goes without saying.

Bjork got kicked out of a hotel — first out of a room, and then out of the lobby — for trying to party. She and singer Ellie Goulding were trying to join the party her friends threw in their hotel room, but the hotel staff didn’t recognize Bjork and Ms. Goulding and tossed them out. But this is Bjork, here. Undeterred, she, Goulding, Skrillex (eeeww), and Diplo continued their party in the lobby. Where the hell is this hotel located where no one recognized them? Mars? But this is all according to Ellie Goulding anyway, who admits she couldn’t really remember the evening because she was “very drunk” (News Of Iceland).
I love this story.
Which musician would YOU most like to party with?
