Ellie Goulding: 'Cosmopolitan UK' January 2014 Cover Girl!

Ellie Goulding graces the January 2014 issue of Cosmopolitan UK.

The 26-year-old singer opens up about confidence, suffering from panic attacks and having girlfriends close to her. Check it:

On her girlfriends: “There are several girls I’m really close to and we are mental. Rita [Ora] I adore. She’s got a really good outlook on life – she’s really positive, hard-working and funny. Cara [Delevingne] and I have so much fun; we relate to each other. Me and Taylor [Swift] are similar in that we write about relationships, and we joke about that. We text and sometimes I only have to say one thing, and even if it’s cryptic she gets it. She’s an inspiration to me because she reinstated how honest you can be about a boy in your music. I thought maybe I should stop being so explicit at one point, then I slapped myself out of that: I’m always going to write about people.”

On her confidence: “My confidence has grown in the past year, as a woman… I feel strong in more ways than one at the moment… I feel very independent and feminist right now – I think maybe it’s being single. I never thought about the idea of being an inspiration. I’m not perfect; I’m not a supermodel – I drink and smoke (which I’m not proud of) and do normal things.”

On romance: “I think it’s really important to be with someone who inspires you and adds something to you. And humour! It’s quite hard to really make me laugh.”
