Ellie Goulding 'Still Adores Ex-Boyfriend Greg James'
She also talks her bond with Rita Ora, Cara D & Taylor Swift in Cosmo chat...
"Rita [Ora] I adore. She’s got a really good outlook on life – she’s really positive, hard-working and funny. Cara [Delevingne] and I have so much fun; we relate to each other."
Ellie continued: "Me and Taylor [Swift] are similar in that we write about relationships, and we joke about that. We text and sometimes I only have to say one thing, and even if it’s cryptic she gets it. She’s an inspiration to me because she reinstated how honest you can be about a boy in your music.
"I thought maybe I should stop being so explicit at one point, then I slapped myself out of that: I’m always going to write about people.”
The full interview appears in the January 2014 issue of Cosmopolitan, on sale December 6. Also available in digital edition on Apple Newsstand.
