Ellie Goulding is reportedly suffering from insomnia but is hoping to beat it with "exercise and natural remedies".
The 29-year-old singer pulled out of several gigs earlier this month (Jul16) and later told fans it was on doctor's orders as she is battling exhaustion.
Now a source close to the British pop star has revealed that she has been suffering from habitual sleeplessness.
"Ellie’s body clock is completely out of sync and she has found herself lying awake in bed most nights unable to get to sleep," a source told Britain's The Sun newspaper.
“All the travelling through random time zones has messed with her system. She just can’t get to sleep at night, and even when she’s back in England the insomnia is sapping her energy."
While some level of tiredness is expected in Ellie's career, the Burn singer is said to be worried she might not live up to fans expectations if she were to take to the stage while struggling with her insomnia.
She is currently on holiday in St Tropez and is apparently hoping she can soon get back on track and then get back out on the road.
“She’s worried about it as she doesn’t want to be tired before going on stage," the source added. "She’s a professional and wants to give her fans the best performances possible.
“Ellie’s had a couple of weeks off now and is hoping she can beat her insomnia through exercise and natural remedies."
Ellie pulled out of the Positivus Festival in Latvia on 15 July (16), followed by Finland's Ilosaarirock Festival on 16 July. She didn't mention what was wrong at the time, but later revealed to Britain's Evening Standard newspaper that she cancelled on doctor's orders.
"I’m a hard worker. I don’t cancel anything unless I really need to, but my doctor said, ‘Ellie, your voice is going to burn out’. Glastonbury was the point where I realised I was pretty exhausted. It’s all good though - I’m feeling really positive about the rest of the year," she told the British newspaper.
Ellie's next scheduled performance is on Sunday (31Jul16) at Lollapallooza in Chicagos Grant Park as part of her Delirium World Tour, which is due to end on 8 October (16) in Melbourne, Australia. (Bron: Music-News)
NEWS / Ellie Goulding has sparked rumours she's planning her nuptials after sharing footage of herself twirling around in a wedding dress online.
The 29-year-old Burn singer, who is dating British rocker Dougie Poynter, has put gossips and bloggers on high alert with a cryptic Instagram.com post.
Filmed in what appears to be a dressing room, Ellie looks like a blushing bride - but she was quick to play down wedding reports.
"Girl in wedding dress but not getting married alert," she added in the caption.
But that hasn't completely appeased all her fans, who have questioned why she was in a wedding dress in the first place.
Back in September (15), Ellie admitted her relationship with Dougie has inspired her to walk down the aisle.
"God, yes!" the star told the UK's Glamour magazine when asked if she wants to get married. "I'm nearly 30. I once had a pretty warped view of marriage because so many people around me had divorced parents.
"So for a long time I did think that I'd never get married and that men were s**t - all that stuff.
"But when someone comes along and re-establishes that trust, then it's nice to think of doing everything the traditional way: having a church wedding, with all my family in one place - I love the idea of that." (Bron: Music-News)
Ellie Goulding releases her third studio album ‘Delirium’ today on Polydor Records. ‘Delirium’ is the follow-up to 2012’s ‘Halcyon’, which cemented Goulding’s status as a global artist. It is available to order now. The first taste of the album comes in new single ‘On My Mind’ which is released a few weeks ago. ‘Delirium’ is the sound of an artist at the top of her game. “A part of me views this album as an experiment – to make a big pop album,” she says. “I made a conscious decision that I wanted it to be on another level.”
It has been a whirlwind few years for the singer from Herefordshire. Since the release of her debut ‘Lights’ in 2010, she has sold over 20 million records, had two Number One albums, won two Brit Awards and had Vevo views and streams both in excess of one billion. This year’s ‘Love Me Like You Do’ single, meanwhile, was a worldwide Number One hitting the top spot in 70 countries and breaking the record for the most streamed song in one week. Some artists might be inhibited about where to go after such success but Goulding had no doubts: make everything bigger, better and braver.
‘Delirium’ is an expansive pop album that reflects its globe-spanning creation. It was written and recorded in London, Herefordshire, Sweden and Los Angeles. Goulding worked with Max Martin, Greg Kurstin, One Republic’s Ryan Tedder, Klas Ahlund and Disclosure’s Guy Lawrence as well as long-time writing partner Jim Eliot in crafting the defining album of her career, a jubilant and euphoric pop statement. Songs such as ‘Devotion’, ‘On My Mind’, ‘Don’t Panic’ and ‘Don’t Need Nobody’ are monumental anthems that retain a personal intimacy: epic tracks with a heart and soul. That balance is displayed most devastatingly on Army, a track written about her best friend Hannah. The album features 16 tracks, with an additional 6 on the deluxe version. ‘Delirium’ is the work of an artist who is seizing her moment, and has never sounded more assertive and in control.
The album title felt to Goulding like it was the word that summed up everything she’d been through to get to this point. “It can be describing a really happy, crazy state, or it can be the complete opposite. I’m constantly in a state of delirium,” she says. ‘Delirium’ feels like the culmination of all Goulding has experienced. It is the sound of someone taking the triumphs and heartbreaks and fears and joys and channeling them into something powerful and mesmerizing. It’s a talent only the most gifted of artists can reach. Ellie Goulding keeps finding new levels to strive for.
Zangeres Ellie Goulding heeft al een jaar problemen met haar hart. Dat gaf ze openlijk toe. Ze mag zelfs geen zware inspanningen meer doen.
"Ik ontdekte dat er iets mis was aan mijn hart. Alles gaat goed, maar het is iets dat vorig jaar werd ontdekt. Ik onderging voordien nooit een test, wat stom is. Ik speelde met mijn leven", beseft ze.
Ze moet rustiger leven. Haar dieet is minder strikt en ze sport niet meer intensief. "Het is zeer relaxerend. Ik ben rustiger en niet meer zo obsessief bezig met eten. Het is ook wel leuk om weten dat je niet naar de gym moet, omdat je niet mag." Afgelopen zomer was ze nog te zien op het hoofdpodium van Pukkelpop. (Bron: HLN)
