We bet a lot of people can relate to Ellie Goulding's struggle!
In a piece for Stylist magazine, Ellie opened up on her difficult battle with anxiety disorder. The brave interview comes on the heels of Ms. Goulding taking a month off from touring after being diagnosed with exhaustion in July.

Now that the singer is doing a bit better (she's currently promoting her song for Bridget Jones's Baby), she was able to discuss what trigged her emotional slump.
According to the hit maker, constant touring and being overly "emotionally aware" put her in a very vulnerable position:
"Since I was young I remember being quite emotionally aware. I could tune in to how I was feeling and understand if I was being irrational, or understand if I was overthinking something. Overthinking can destroy you. I was diagnosed with exhaustion a couple of months back, but it's only now that I realise how bad it really was. When I think back to my tiredness, my slump, not wanting to exercise and not being interested in anything… It wasn't depression, it was just my body giving up."
Well, overthinking often leads to anxiety… it's unfortunately pretty common!
The entertainer then went on to describe the low point of her condition, revealing:
As we reported, Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston have called it quits — and we're sure many of you were wondering how Calvin Harris reacted to the news!
Considering Tay Tay started her whirlwind romance with the actor just two weeks after ending things with the music producer, you can see why this is inneresting info!
Turns out, the 32-year-old was in attendance at the GQ Men Of The Year Awards in London on Tuesday just as news broke of Hiddleswift's breakup just three months after getting together… sitting right next to none other than Ellie Goulding!

Yep that's right, Perezcious readers, Calvin was seated alongside the person who played "matchmaker" in getting him and T. Swift together in the first place!! We can't make this up!
Taking to his Snapchat, the Scottish DJ filmed from inside the event, and you can see the exact moment both him and Ellie (probably) heard the news.
In the clip, Calvin pans the camera over to the blonde beauty as he jokingly says:
She sure has a thing for movie soundtracks!
As you may recall, Ellie Goulding made a name for herself in America once and for all last year when she wrote Love Me Like You Do as the theme song for 50 Shades of Grey.
Well, it seems as though the 29-year-old pop star enjoyed the glitz and glamour of Hollywood… because she just dropped yet another music video for a major film franchise on Friday!

From now until the movie premieres next month, be prepared to hear Ellie as the voice for fellow British favorite Bridget Jones's Baby thanks to her new song Still Falling For You.
But as if being commissioned for a soundtrack wasn't already a huge deal, the music video itself actually features shots of Renee Zellweger, Colin Firth, and Patrick Dempsey!
We cannot wait to see how the song plays into the Bridget Jones sequel's plot once Baby arrives on September 16!
Ch-ch-check out Ellie Goulding's Still Falling For You music video (below)!!!
Ellie Goulding is NOT in a good place at the moment!
According to The Sun, the singer is experiencing intense bouts of insomnia and other health issues which recently forced her to cancel some tour dates.

Per the report, Goulding wants to give fans the BEST show possible so she's sidelining herself until she makes a full recovery. The beauty hopes to bounce back with a combination of exercise and natural remedies.
An insider revealed to the mag:
"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. All the traveling 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. She's worried about it as she doesn't want to be tired before going on stage. She's a professional and wants to give her fans the best performances possible."
Aww! That doesn't sound fun at all. It's nice to hear E.G. is taking the time to reset, especially considering Heath Ledger's death was partially caused by exhaustion and the pills he took to cope with insomnia.
Luckily for Ellie, she's doing all she can do to be back at the top of her game:
"Ellie's had a couple of weeks off now and is hoping she can beat her insomnia through exercise and natural remedies."
Here's to hoping Ms. Goulding overcomes her health issues ASAP! Get better, girl!

Lorde recently related her Uber ride experience Tuesday and it was rather hilarious, considering her driver didn't recognize her, but spent the entire ride telling her about ANOTHER celebrity he'd just picked up right before her.
The singer tweeted:
The stars are coming out to help put an end to poverty!
The lineup for the 2016 Global Citizen Festival was announced Tuesday morning, and there is no shortage of A-list artists set to take the stage in Central Park at the annual New York City concert!
Selena Gomez, Rihanna, Kendrick Lamar, Metallica, and Major Lazer will headline the charity festival put on by Global Citizen — the nonprofit that aims to eradicate poverty by 2030.
But that's not all! Usher, Chris Martin, Ellie Goulding, Yusuf/Cat Stevens, and Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder are just a few more musicians joining as guest performers at the concert!

And in case that's not enough stars for you, the festival will be hosted by Hugh Jackman and his wife Deborra-Lee Furness, Priyanka Chopra, Salma Hayek, Neil Patrick Harris, Seth Meyers, and Chelsea Handler! Now THAT'S a lineup!
Jackman shared the exciting announcement on Twitter, posting:
Poor Ellie Goulding.
The singer was supposed to perform at this year's Positivus Festival in Latvia over the weekend, but she was sadly forced to cancel her upcoming gig!

On Tuesday, the festival's website revealed that Miz Goulding had to back out her shows because she's feeling sick, writing:
"Unfortunately we have received some rather sad news – Ellie Goulding has been forced to pull out of her upcoming shows due to being unwell, and unfortunately also had to cancel her appearance at Positivus Festival."
And on Wednesday, the pop princess took to Twitter to apologize to her fans for cancelling her set, but didn't dish any details about her mysterious illness, posting:
Well, at least her sickness doesn't sound super serious!
And the good news is that the festival is allowing fans to either refund their Friday passes or use them on a different day, in light of Ellie's cancellation.
