‘Love Me Like You Do’ singer Ellie Goulding always wears black in studio

Ellie Goulding can only wear black when she’s in the studio because coloured clothes distract her.

The 33-year-old pop star explained that she only dresses in all-black because it’s like a “blank canvas” and she also can’t wear jewellery or bright-coloured makeup.

Speaking on the ‘Talk Art’ podcast alongside her art dealer husband, Caspar Jopling, she said: “I’m a bit of a weirdo, I have to wear black every day. When I’m in the studio I have to wear all black, kind of like a blank canvas so I don’t get distracted by anything I’m wearing.

“I can’t wear any kind of jewellery, any make-up, anything with colour. It has to be a black T-shirt, I can’t even wear tight trousers, it has to be like I’m about to embark on something physical.”

Meanwhile, the ‘Slow Grenade’ singer recently admitted she feared she’d lost her songwriting ability while making her new album.

The British star thought she’d lost the talent to pen hit records after spending several weeks in Los Angeles making her new album, ‘Brightest Blue’, and hardly creating anything worthy to make the upcoming record’s final cut.

Speaking on Instagram Live, Ellie whose last album, ‘Delirium’, was released in 2015 shared: “I did a whole month of sessions in LA and for some reason, they weren’t going well. For some reason, I was having a hard time.

“And then when you have a succession of sessions that don’t go well, you suddenly think you’ve lost all of your powers and you can’t write and you’re rubbish. That’s just classic me.

“I ended up getting two songs. One was ‘Slow Grenade’. Some of the lyrics are poignant to what’s going on in the world. I hope the songs will be helpful in some way. I dunno, therapy.”
