Ellie Goulding took to social media this week to slam irresponsible claims about her eating habits or lack thereof.
Goulding recently did an interview with Red magazine in which she shared how she and her exhausted band members once had an IV vitamin drip.
"I had to pay for me and the band to have IV vitamin drips. Can you believe it? We're backstage at Alan Carr [chat show] and we're all sat there on drips," she said, adding, "The last month has been really testing, on everything. On my sanity, really. The music industry isn't like other industries — there are no rules about working hours. A working day will start with a 4 a.m. flight and finish at 3 a.m. the next day. Sometimes I don't have time to eat. I go, 'are we gonna get lunch?' And everyone around me is like…"
She then reportedly took a "sharp intake of breath that signifies 'No'." She does, however, go on to say that she, "can't even tell you what I've eaten this week because you'll secretly judge me" — which included marshmallows, Nando's and crisps.
Goulding has since slammed Metro for "misquoting" her after they reported that she was "too busy to eat." Setting the record straight Goulding referred to the "misleading," "absurd" claims about her lifestyle.
This has been brought to my attention today. An intentionally misleading "quote", extremely irresponsible of them. pic.twitter.com/c7cXU0YPob— Ellie Goulding (@elliegoulding) February 1, 2016
Misleading people into thinking I replace meals with an IV drip is the most absurd thing I've dealt with thus far— Ellie Goulding (@elliegoulding) February 1, 2016
Actually I detest IV drips and only ever had one once years ago at the point of extreme exhaustion, and couldn't even complete it.— Ellie Goulding (@elliegoulding) February 1, 2016
Concerns me that something something like that can be so heavily misconstrued. Very sad because I am fit, healthy and strong and work hard.— Ellie Goulding (@elliegoulding) February 1, 2016
I can usually laugh off misquotes and ignore but this is a genuinely dangerous and irresponsible one.— Ellie Goulding (@elliegoulding) February 1, 2016
Red author Sophie Heawood, also took to Twitter to defend her interview — which Goulding subsequently retweeted.
Heawood expressed her disappointment in Metro before explaining that Goulding does eat.
Very upset to see Metro eke such nonsense out of my forthcoming @elliegoulding interview for Red mag, altho I’m laughing at how wrong it is.— Sophie Heawood (@heawood) February 1, 2016
In my piece, Ellie says work is so busy it’s hard to stop for lunch, but she also talks about scoffing Nandos, the great juicing rip-off,— Sophie Heawood (@heawood) February 1, 2016
Heawood also claimed that the original story was actually "quite funny."
... and how she ONCE got an IV vitamin drip for her knackered band members. Which all sounded quite funny.— Sophie Heawood (@heawood) February 1, 2016
Somehow this has turned into Metro declaring that @elliegoulding uses an IV drip instead of eating. Very helpful work there lads. Amazing x— Sophie Heawood (@heawood) February 1, 2016
Goulding also shared a screenshot from a Metro article, along with the tweet, "Instead of issuing an apology, @MetroUK has reinforced its false story on me by printing this."
