Ellie Goulding needs pre-show drink
Ellie Goulding has to have a drink before she goes on stage.
The ‘Love Me Like You Do’ hitmaker may have played gigs across the globe, but she’s still “too shy” to get up on stage without a little Dutch courage, as she says she almost always has a drink before her performances.
Speaking to The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre column, she said: “I generally have a drink or two before I go on stage - I’m too shy otherwise. I’ll have a vodka soda or something, nothing too heavy. I can’t drink whisky. White wine is not really my thing either. I like a gin and tonic.”
Ellie, 32, performed at the royal wedding reception of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank last year, after having previously played a medley of covers and her own tracks at the 2011 wedding of Prince William and Duchess Catherine.
