Ellie Goulding, the British pop star, has been candid about the drawbacks of fame and how it exacerbated her struggles with panic attacks, anxiety, and insecurity. However, as she gears up to release her fifth studio album. She has declared that she is done caring about what other people think and is putting herself first. She wants to use her clout to speak up for those who don’t have a voice. Especially those most vulnerable to the effects of climate change.
As an outspoken climate activist and UN Environment goodwill ambassador, Ellie Goulding is putting her money where her mouth is by only agreeing to play venues that can meet her standards of environmentally sustainable practices. She is aware of the amount of pollution and waste that results from a typical tour. From the travel involved to the merchandise sold and large quantities of plastic used. Thus, she is trying to figure out a tour that’s very green and has the smallest possible carbon footprint.
While Goulding is happy to return to performing and making electronic music, a genre she grew up on. She is also considering experimenting with new collaborators and possibly new styles of music in the future. Her voice carries everything she does, and she feels like she can get away with putting out a classical album tomorrow, and people would still recognize it as Ellie.
Goulding’s outlook on pleasing others isn’t the only thing that has undergone profound shifts since she rose to fame more than a decade ago. In that time, the way people listen to and discover music has fundamentally changed. As well as the way artists are expect to engage with fans. Goulding finds solace in Sex and the City reruns and regular exercise, something she still prioritizes after becoming a mom. She believes that working out helps her stay mentally in the best possible place for her son, Arthur.
