Ellie Goulding opens up about her relationship with Dougie Poynter
Songstress Ellie Goulding has opened up about her on again/off again romance with fellow musician, Dougie Poynter.
She told Glamour magazine that it's hard to make a relationship work when both parties are involved in the entertainment industry because it means that schedules are almost impossible to coordinate and you spend a lot of time apart:
“I’ve been busy; he's been busy. We're apart constantly. But we’re great because we accept it’s never going to be perfect. Relationships have their ups and downs. And sometimes, yeah, I want to be left alone. Dougie is respectful of that.”
“Dougie and I have such different musical worlds, but he understands when I've had a tough rehearsal or tough couple of days traveling. I don’t like to rely on him to get me through everything, though. I’m an independent person—I do like to take care of things myself. It's important to figure out ways of keeping your own Zen.”
Goulding went onto add that she is a very private person, but when she does open up about her personal life she is very honest: "I keep a private life, but when I talk, I do it honestly. I don’t want to pretend I’m anything that I’m not. Much to my label’s annoyance, I do my own thing on social media. I take pictures of Dougie. I make fun of false press. It's important to find a grounded way to deal with all this [fame].”
