Ellie Goulding Says 'On My Mind' is Not About Ed Sheeran

Ellie Goulding Says 'On My Mind' is Not About Ed Sheeran

Ellie Goulding is the picture of pretty on the April 2016 cover of Seventeen magazine, on newsstands March 15.

Here’s what the 29-year-old singer had to share with the mag:

On being an inspiration: “I don’t want girls to get to my age and feel like they’re not pretty enough, not thin enough, or they’re not good enough for something or someone. I’m naturally compassionate—that’s something I really like about myself. I always consider other people before myself, and I think that’s what I try to do with my music. I want to write lyrics that girls can relate to. I’m a girl; I know how hard it is… If girls are anything like me when I was a teenager, then I want them to know everything is going to be okay.”

On going out with One Direction‘s Niall Horan: “We’re still friends. We went on a few dates, and it was really fun. He’s a really, really lovely guy. He’s got the biggest sense of humor, he’s very caring, and I see him as a genuine friend in the industry.”

On whether she has dated Ed Sheeran and that “On My Mind” is about him: “We’ve known each other for a few years. I think he’s a really nice guy and a brilliant musician. We’ve bumped into each other and we’ve hung out and stuff, but the thing is if I hang out with someone, it’s instantly like I’m ‘dating’ them. We were never in a relationship. My song is not about him.”
