Ella Eyre goes skintight for day number two of the 2015 V Festival on Sunday (August 23) held at Hylands Park in Chelmsford, England.
The 21-year-old “Good Times” singer hit the stage along with Ella Henderson, after hitting Weston Park just the day before.
“I bought this portrait of Amy Winehouse from a charity auction for what would have been her 30th birthday,” Ella Eyreshared about one of her favorite possessions.
She added, “I only went to support, but fell in love with this photograph. It’s her at the Isle of Wight festival in 2007. Amy is one of my biggest influences. Not only was her voice incredible, but also her music is so tragic and relatable. I like to write only about things that have happened to me, so her songs are an inspiration.”
Ella was just named the official ambassador for Batiste Brand and the partnership will kick off later this year in the U.S., with her appearing in the brand’s media campaign.
“Batiste is my number 1 hit,” Ella shared in a statement. “I’m either in the studio or on stage, in a car or on a plane — often with little time to get ready. I can always count on Batiste(TM) dry shampoo to refresh and restyle my hair on the go; I know I’ll always be ready for wherever the day takes me.”
“From the moment I stepped into this industry, I’ve always had to fight for my ideas and for my voice to be heard. When I got signed, I had just turned 16. I felt like I had to continuously have these confrontations with older men who were doubting my ideas because I was a woman, because I was 16. I actually think it doesn’t even matter what age you are or what sex—though that does play into it sometimes—you always have to fight in any kind of creative world because nobody knows your own brain and your own creative ideas better than you do,” Charli shared in the issue, which features Taylor Swifton the cover.
Ella Henderson performs at the iHeartMedia Soundfront Event held at iHeartMedia Headquarters on Wednesday night (April 22) in New York City.
The 19-year-old “Ghost” singer was joined by fellow musician George Ezra as the company announced its new series of original audio programs, which will allow marketers to collaborate with a host of celebrities and talent through customized and creative storytelling.
The new lineup features a “broad spectrum of A-list producers, musicians, actors, music industry veterans and curators, including producer of hit TV series and gaming franchise, The Walking Dead to Oscar-winning actor and musician Jared Leto, to produce innovative audio programming and storytelling that will air as long form segments on iHeartRadio and short form segments across iHeartMedia radio stations nationwide.”

Speaking with Huffington Post, Ella opened up about writing the track: “When I wrote ["Mirror Man"], I was in such an angry, mad state-of-mind. I realized how horrible it was to be controversial and potentially release something when you know that person is going to know it’s about them.”
