As we [uuid=17e65b56-29b4-437a-af8d-e7a938c3319d]Katy Perry and Lady Gaga. I've still got a long way to go. I've toured with Katy and I met Lady Gaga when I won the Brit Award but they've both been an inspiration to me."
As well as talking all things Gaga, Ellie also addressed her shock at being nominated for an Calvin Harriscollaboration, I Need Your Love.
The star said: "It's still something I will never comprehend because I came to America for a couple of years, trying to make it out here.
"It was happening slowly and I built up a fanbase doing meet-and-greets after my shows with 300 people every night so I was exhausted but it started to pay off."
Ellie added: "During that time Lights started climbing up the charts very slowly. I think it has the record for the slowest climb to No.1. It was bizarre. The VMA thing is just crazy. I am going to be there because it's a really big thing for me."
The 2013 MTV Video Awards will be shown on MTV from 8pm on Monday August 26.
