Ellie Goulding looks set to hire lookalike for new music video
Ellie Goulding looks set to hire a lookalike to play her as a teenager in a music video about her wilder days.
The British singer-songwriter has put out an advertisement for her “nostalgic and gritty” promo for her forthcoming single, 16.
According to The Sun newspaper, the relatable video promises to show the 32-year-old pop star taking her first sip of booze, hanging out with boys and rebelling against her parents.
The retrospective promo for the song, which follows her recent single Flux, is expected to begin shooting in the coming weeks and schedule to be released next month in April.
Golding admitted in 2014 on TV host Michael Parkinson's show that she was somewhat of a "rebel" as a teenager.
She said: “I nearly did go down that path. I was a bit of a rebel when I was 14. People would call me a goth. I had long black hair, piercings and I liked heavy metal music.”
In 2016, the Love Me Like You Do singer recalled a "messy night" out with former 'Geordie Shore' star Scotty T at her after-party.
At the time, she said: "Gaz gave it all that and was like, 'I really want to come to the show' and then didn't come, but Scotty T is absolutely hilarious, such a legend.
"He's so much fun to go out with. We went out - him and a couple of his mates, a massive crew of us with my dancers and band, it was so much fun. He's amazing and he's so funny. I'm not going to lie, it was a messy night."
However, these days the stars has admitted that she much prefers being in the studio and is much more unsocial.
She said: "If I call someone on the phone, they'll be like, 'What's wrong?' Because anyone who knows me will know I just don't speak on the phone to anyone either.
