Ellie Goulding: 'I'm proud of being a strong woman'

Songstress Ellie Goulding has revealed that she loves being a physically fit and strong woman. 

During a new interview with Women's Health magazine, the 'Love Me Like You Do' star explained that she won't shy away from showing off her muscular physique and likes it when men aren't intimidated by her body: 

"I'm not afraid of a guy saying to me that I'm strong. And I will happily post pictures of my muscles on Instagram, because I'm proud of being a strong girl."

"I Instagram and I tweet and I perform in whatever I want and if you accept that you're always going to get negativity then you can overcome it. I feel strong. I mean, physically I'm strong, but I feel like it does add to me being a bit stronger and being able to deflect things easier."

Goulding, meanwhile, told Ryan Seacrest that she loves having a group of close female friends because they all empower each other: "What we have in common is, I think, we’re all just really quite strong women. All those girls are all so smart and they’re all so fun. I find hanging out with smart girls stimulating, fulfilling, and also funny."
