With her saccharine sweet voice and incredibly friendly disposition, Ellie Goulding was an absolute darling to interview.
While anxiously waiting for Ellie’s arrival at the Fairmont Hotel’s Ink Bar, I was expecting her to make a grand entrance with her entire posse (eg. manager/personal assistant). I mean, she is one of the hottest UK acts right now , isn't it? Instead, Ellie walked into the bar really casually and started to approach a group of journalist who were sitting near her just to greet them.
As we were about to begin with the interview, Ellie was captivated by my fellow blogger, Joey’s tattoo stockings. “You wouldn’t mind if I took a photo and put it up on Instagram, would you?” she asked so politely.
It was that simple interaction that made Ellie feel more like a friend than just another run-of-the-mill singer.
Wearing a snuggly teal pullover, black tights and platform heels, the English songstress opened up about the writing process that went on for her sophomore effort, Halcyon. She also opened up about her relationship with actor Jeremy Irvine. In fact, Ellie got so shy about the topic that she was gushing so hard. She almost looked like a 16-year-old schoolgirl with a crush. How adorable!
With her genuine warmth, Ellie made a concerted effort to look at all of her interviewers in the eye despite how lethargic she was. Once again, it was that sincerity that made it so easy to interview her.
It’s really not that difficult to fall in love with this sweetheart. As a fan myself, my admiration for her grew ten times its regular size just seeing how she carried herself throughout the interview.
