Ellie Goulding To Quit Music After Breakup?
Ellie Goulding has opened up about her breakup and quitting music.
According to The Sun, the singer has split with boyfriend of two years, Dougie Poynter, and has said that she wants to to a break from music.
She told them that she needs a break to deal with the recent heartbreak saying, “When you’re in the public eye, it seems like you’re able to deal with stuff better than anyone else, which is not remotely true.
“I’m not in a relationship anymore and that’s been hard. Having a break will be a good thing for me and my head.”
The couple had recently hinted at a possible wedding in the future, but due to their hectic schedules, their relationship became strained. He is currently in the States trying to break into the acting world and she's in the middle of her successful Delirium Tour.
She said that they have remained friends following the break-up. "He’s doing well in LA and he’s still one of my best friends. I know he feels the same", she said.
“But I think for me and anybody else going through the same thing, it’s really important to get to know yourself, be happy with your own company and like yourself.
“The only way I can do that is by spending time with myself. The last couple of weeks have been quite strange and quite different for me because I’ve been by myself so much, but I think it’s healthy to do."
She tweeted a cryptic message during the week which could have been referencing the break-up.
Seeing you all singing back at me every night has kept me in the happiest place in what could have been a very tough few weeks. Thank you
