Ellie Goulding Coy Over Niall Horan Relationship
Pop star refuses to comment on reports of romance with One Direction member...
The 26-year-old singer - currently enjoying her first UK No 1 single - was asked by The Mirror to spill the beans on reports that she'd been spotted snogging Niall at the V Festival last weekend.
But she would only say: "I won't ever talk about my love life any more because it's always then gone wrong when I have in the past."
However she did admit that she had been subjected to some "interesting" tweets after rumours surfaced in the media.
"Thankfully I'm able to take it all with a pinch of salt because I've been told to be that way.
"I genuinely mean this - I don't hate on anyone, but at least One Direction fans are very passionate and my fans are very passionate too.
"I'd hate it if people didn't care about what they thought."
And she opened up a bit on the stresses of a successful career in the entertainment industry - blaming work pressures for her split from ex-BF Jeremy Irvine.
"I've not just been away for a week, I've been away for two months at a time. It's hard to keep anything together.
"I don't even get a chance to see my friends and my family and that's tough. It's the downside of my job, being destined to be single for a while."
It was claimed earlier in the week that Ellie and Niall are "just good friends".
