Ellie Goulding has told The Sun that she will be quitting music and that she has broken up with McFly-member Dougie Poynter. She told the outlet in an interview just before kicking off her biggest tour on U.K. soil in Cardiff on Tuesday night, "People think I'm invincible but these past few weeks have been tough. When you're in the public eye, it seems like you're able to deal with stuff better than anyone else, which is not remotely true. I'm not in a relationship anymore and that's been hard. Having a break will be a good thing for me and my head."
"I'm not writing new stuff. I'm not sure when I'll release a new album. It might not even be next year," she added. "I need time off for my own head. My plan is to have a month off in August and do more of my charity stuff and then next year I need to live a bit. Who knows? My situation has changed."
Last November, Goulding released her most recent album, Delirium, via Polydor. She is currently on tour in the U.K., but will be taking a break when the concert series comes to an end in October. She went on to tell The Sun about touring, "touring has become my default. I've toured seven years non-stop. If you do too much of something, it can turn into something you feel like you have to do and it's not as enjoyable as it could be. I don't really have that much of a social life because of what I do. You tend to meet people just in this world."For more on Ellie Goulding, check out:
