Ellie said in a recent interview about her industry peers being too overtly sexy for other people's tastes:
'I don't have anything against being sexy. If a popstar exposes herself or doesn't wear a lot, it doesn't really bother me the way it bothers other people. I feel like people are less fussed about it in America, whereas in the UK people are a little more reserved. But if someone's making good music, I don't care about anyone else.'
That's all it should be about in the end! Just purely about the music, although it's not out fault everyone else is just obsessed with the fashion or lack thereof!
She continued to touch bases on some of the other popular popstars in the industry, saying you don't really need to dress seXXXy to do well!
The Burn singer said:
'Some of the most successful girls don't portray themselves as sex symbols. Lorde is doing exceptionally well - she's been number one in America for ages and she doesn't dress like a skank. Lily Allen is doing really well and she doesn't dress provocatively. If you make good music, then that's all you need.'
Very wise words, Ellie!
