Ellie Goulding Denies Ever Dating Ed Sheeran

You may not follow Ellie Goulding and Ed Sheeran news – either separately or together, if that’s even a thing – but the basic word on the street is that at one time, Ellie and Ed were dating, and then Ellie fucked Ed over by going off to sleep with Niall Horan from One Direction and Ed was furious and heartbroken so he wrote “Don’t” about her. Ed has actually confirmed his relationship with Ellie before in interviews, but Ellie is finally speaking up and she claims it never happened. DRAMA!

“I did go on a few dates with Niall [Horan] but I was never in a relationship with Ed [Sheeran],” the “Burn” songstress, 28, revealed in Elle UK. “I have absolutely no idea where that came from and why it was turned into such a big thing.”

“I find it so frustrating that female musicians are constantly defined by the men they have or haven’t dated. It’s something I’ve talked about with Taylor a lot,” she said, referring to “Blank Space” singer Taylor Swift, who is also pals with Sheeran. “She definitely feels that. She gets bothered by it. It’s like, you can be a great artist, you can write great songs, but the thing that everyone is going to talk about is some relationship they think you have had or not had. It’s definitely something we both think happens to female artists over male artists.”

Hmm. Now I’ve loved Ellie for years (as in, before she ever even got her record deal and was just updating demos to MySpace), and I’m a pretty staunch supporter of her in every way, but I’m not buying it. Ed Sheeran may not be the most physically attractive man in the universe, but he’s a kind and talented one and would have no trouble getting a girlfriend. Why would he bother to make an entire story up? And why about her?

After all, as he pointed out, you don’t hold hands with someone you’re just friends with:

Also, valiant effort on Ellie’s behalf in trying to turn the issue into a bigger one about sexism. It’s not just female musicians, girl – ANY woman in any field in the entire world is always pressed about relationships. It’s messed up, but it’s hardly defined her career, not nearly as much as it has other women in the biz (like Taylor, for instance). So I dunno, the whole thing is just weird. She shouldn’t have to talk about this at all, but then, why do it? Say it’s a topic that’s off the table rather than twisting the knife a bit by denying it altogether.

Video: Ellie Goulding’s ‘Divergent’ track, ‘Beating Heart’, is pretty great

beating heart

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!

Are Ellie Goulding and One Direction’s Niall Horan an Item?

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.

Hotel Denied Bjork The Right To Party

bjork Webby Awards 2012

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?
