Ellie Goulding: Keep On Singing!

Ellie Goulding has a busy September long weekend planned! With X-Fest in Calgary, Edmonton’s Sonic Boom, and Seattle’s Bumbershoot Festival on her gig list, Ellie is going to make a lot of people happy when they come to hear her sing.

Goulding will be headlining at all three Festivals along with Hozier, Brandon Flowers, and Bassnectar.

In other news, things are going well for Ellie and boyfriend Dougie Poynter. When the two were out for a late April hike, having a wonderful time in the sunshine, Ellie made sure to catch it on camera with a smooch shot.

The blonde beauty, 28, delighted fans when she shared an intimate picture of herself kissing Dougie Poynter atop a hike trail in California on Saturday.

Later, Goulding shared a hot photo of Dougie relaxing on the bedroom floor.

“Man crush errrryday”

Ellie Goulding is fit and famous now, but there was a time when she didn’t think she had what it took.

“I came to the conclusion that I wouldn’t be a pop star, I wasn’t that pretty, I was fairly average. There was definitely a time when I ran too much and didn’t eat enough and for a while I worried a lot about how glamorous I looked on stage. But as soon as I stopped being preoccupied with those things, things started really developing in my career. It sounds cheesy, but if you think awesome you’ll be awesome.”

Now Ellie is known for her passion for fitness — real fitness, and honest to goodness health.

“People used to laugh at me for my lifestyle because it wasn’t cool, but fitness is booming now. I think people want to live a healthier life now.”

A lot of Twitter users agree.

Ellie Goulding knows that fitness is important, but she also knows that health is the bottom line.

“I treat fitness as an essential part of my life. I see it as [important] as a meal time, or something else I have to do, like go to a meeting. But I’m also realistic. If I land in LA in the afternoon and I’m exhausted, I’ll be honest with myself. If my body is not feeling it then I’ll listen to it. I don’t go crazy.”

Fans love that Ellie Goulding loves her boyfriend, her body and her life! And all that love shows when she sings. Keep on singing, Ellie, because you’ve got the fire!
