Ellie Goulding on Kim Kardashian, Slut-Shaming & Panic Attacks

The singer says she has personally experienced "slut-shaming" online and believes women should be able to post what they want without being attacked.

E llie has opened up on the topic of ‘slut-shaming’, saying it’s something she has experienced first hand on social media. She says that she is proud of her body but has noticed negative comments and believes women should be free to post whatever they feel like without backlash:

“I have been, 100 percent, on social media. I work out a lot; I’m proud of my body. I put up a picture of myself, and people are like, “Put it away; you’re supposed to be a good influence on young people.” Young women should have the freedom to post a picture with no makeup and wearing a track suit or in full makeup and a tight dress.”

Speaking on Kim Kardashian’s frequent nude selfies, Ellie says she doesn’t see anything wrong with it and believes Kim is a beautiful woman:

“Honestly, it did not phase me. I feel like I have the right to do the same thing if I ever wanted to. She’s a mom; she’s had kids; she looks incredible. She works hard for her body, and it’s beautiful.”

Ellie has suffered from anxiety attacks in the past but says she has been able to get the problem under control with cognitive behavioural therapy. She recalls having attacks in the early part of her career:

“By having cognitive behavioural therapy. I was skeptical at first because I’d never had therapy, but not being able to leave the house was so debilitating. And this was when my career was really taking off. My surroundings would trigger a panic attack, so I couldn’t go to the studio unless I was lying down in the car with a pillow over my face. I used to beat myself up about it.”

She was worried she would have a relapse but thinks she has things under control now:

“There were a couple of times after I released Delirium when I was doing promo and thought, Oh god, it’s coming back, it’s coming back, but it didn’t. I think my body has become quite good at controlling anxiety.”
