Seems like Ellie Goulding has found her match in Skrillex!
The 25-year-old “Lights” singer and the 24-year-old Grammy Award-winning dubstep artist met through email late 2011, and since then, the two musicians have kind of developed how they feel for each other. Ellie says in an interview:
I think we influence each other — not necessarily in music, but in the way that any couple would influence each other. One of the reasons that we first liked each other is that we’re both very motivated and we work really hard. We just want to make good music and tour and I think, you know, we motivate each other.
We were good mates before we became a couple, and we’re both really big fans of each other.
Goulding, who had the honor of performing for Prince William and Kate Middleton at their wedding reception in April 2011, shares that she and the American-born artist are bonded tightly by music, but she stresses that they don’t interfere with each other’s work. She tells:
I play him my new stuff he plays me his new stuff, and it probably has influenced me subconsciously. And maybe my stuff has influenced him subconsciously. I don’t know. But he’s a very talented producer. He’s really good at what he does.
Awww, surely we hope this romance leads to the “I dos!”
