Ellie Goulding on Taylor Swift: 'I admire her balls'

'Starry Eyed' superstar Ellie Goulding has revealed that she has a lot of respect for songstress Taylor Swift because she writes songs from the heart and in such an honest and revealing way.

During a new interview with Fabulous magazine, Goulding, who recently joined Swift on stage at London's O2 Arena for an impromptu rendition of her hit single 'Burn', explained that it's tough to expose so much of yourself like that so she admires her:

“I love the way she writes... I think she’s got balls.”

When asked if they do typical girly things together when they hang out, such as talk about love interests or crushes, Goulding joked: "Of course! It’s a myth that people who are in the public eye are different to normal people. They are normal people. They’re human beings."

The 'I Knew You Were Trouble' beauty recently opened up about the way she writes songs, admitting that it's important to her to be an open book where her music is concerned: "My song writing will always have a confessional aspect, because I naturally draw on my life and my stories. I don't want to keep repeating the same things, though - you want to be able to explore those themes in different ways and have something new to say."
