Ellie Goulding Reveals She Ghosted An Invite To Perform At A Concert For Donald Trump


Ellie Goulding is no stranger to performing for A-list audiences, but there’s one person she has no intention of holding a concert for.

Speaking on this Saturday’s Jonathan Ross Show, the Brit Award winner reveals that she has previously been asked to perform at an event being held for the current president, Donald Trump.

When pressed on how she responded, Ellie says: “Yeah. I’m alright thanks... I just didn’t reply.” Ouch.

This isn’t the first time Ellie has made her feelings on Trump clear.

In a three-tweet thread, she previously slammed his decision to back out of the Paris climate agreement. 

When a fan then wrote, ‘Don’t stick your nose into politics and make me not want to go to your concert in June’, she replied: “Don’t come then.”

Back in 2011, Ellie performed for then-president Barack Obama at the annual Christmas tree light-up in the US.

A year later, she took to the stage behind closed doors at Buckingham Palace, for Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding reception.

Ellie will be walking up the aisle herself in late 2018, following her boyfriend Caspar Jopling’s recent proposal.

Caspar popped the question while the couple were doing a jigsaw puzzle and Ellie spills all on the details during her Jonathan Ross interview.

“I think it was quite an easy one, probably 400 pieces,” she explains. “Anyway I think he was getting bored of it and then he proposed.

“It was quite romantic for some reason. He didn’t [get down on one knee] and then I was like ‘get down on one knee.’ I’m quite traditional like that.”

The Jonathan Ross Show airs on Saturday at 9:15pm, on ITV.
