SHE has maintained a squeaky-clean style during her music career but on her new album Ellie Goulding finally gets down and dirty.
I’ve learned she has recorded a song called Waiting For It, in which she uncharacteristically sings about getting it on in the bedroom with her art-dealer husband Caspar Jopling.
Making her feelings clear, Ellie sings: “We can f*** the world away, I’ve been reconditioned into new positions.”
Not so subtly, she continues: “Pouring you in my cup, let it drip on my fingers.
“But it’s never enough, I want it again.”
The song will appear on Ellie’s upcoming fifth album Higher Than Heaven, which is out next month.
Debuting the track live during an intimate set, she teased: “You can tell what mood I was in when I wrote this song.” And she said of the new album: “It is about being passionately in love. But it’s a hyper form of love, almost like a drug-induced feeling.”
That explains those raunchy lyrics then.
It has been 14 years since Ellie broke on to the scene and in that time she has performed at Prince William’s wedding and become best pals with his cousin Princess Eugenie.
Somehow I doubt she will be singing this one next time she’s round at the Palace.
Lourdes makes a point
I’LL spare you the obvious “horny” jokes about Lourdes Leon’s wacky outfit as she takes to the catwalk at New York Fashion Week on Tuesday.
The model, daughter of Madonna, wore the clingy red corset by London-based Spanish designer Luis De Javier that featured a pair of strategically-positioned devil horns.
At least it meant Lourdes had finally made it on to a catwalk – two weeks after she was refused entry to a show by designer Marc Jacobs because she arrived too late.
The rising star was left red-faced when security told her that the doors to the show at the Park Avenue Armoury in Manhattan were locked.
As well as modelling, last year she made a move into music under the name Lolahol.
Despite her family background, Lourdes previously insisted she wasn’t a nepo-baby.
She said: “We don’t get any handouts in my family.”
Niall’s Heaven is a hit
HE hasn’t scored a chart-topping single since launching his solo career seven years ago but Niall Horan is pulling out all the stops to do so this time.
The former One Direction star has dropped his new single Heaven today and has already sold thousands of copies on CD to fans in a bid to give his sales total a major boost.
In the charts, physical sales account for far more than streams or downloads, meaning he could give Miley Cyrus a run for her money after four weeks at No1 with Flowers.
He said: “I’ve been away for so long, I want to just make a big splash.”
Heaven will be on his third studio album called The Show, out on June 9.
Speaking about the record on TikTok, he said: “The inspiration behind the album name is basically that life is like a bit of a show.
“There’s ups and downs, things you can control, things you can’t control. It meanders.
“But I’ve got a good feeling that you’re going to like it.
“There’s obviously some sad songs on there, as always, but for the most part it’s fun and it feels like it’s me. I think that’s the most important thing.
“I’ve never worked harder on a record, there’s no doubt.”
Kristen jazzes up festival
DON’T stare at Kristen Stewart’s outfit for too long or you might start feeling dizzy.
She wore the busy look as she opened the Berlin Film Festival yesterday and had her say on the state of the movie industry after years of weakening box office takings.
The Twilight actress said: “How much it costs, obviously like we’re headed towards oblivion on that one. But I also think that there’s a vital, desperate need in all of us to create something.
“And I think when you start really fixating on the industry, it’s easy to be like, ‘Oh, God, it’s all falling apart!’
“But I just think that there’s something vital that’s undeniable and will never go away.”
Rebel forced to stay Fat
REBEL WILSON has claimed her Pitch Perfect contract banned her from gaining or losing more than ten lbs while playing her character Fat Amy.
The Aussie star said it left her feeling miserable because she couldn’t get started on her fitness journey, which has seen her slim down since the film franchise ended.
Rebel said: “I couldn’t lose a massive amount of weight because I was in the contracts for that movie.
“You can’t lose, I think it’s not more than ten pounds or gain more than ten pounds. You have to kind of stay at the weight. It’s in your contract.
“I was stereotyped in playing that fat funny friend, which is so hard because I love those roles but then I did want to do more things but I felt like being the bigger girl you’re just more pigeonholed.”
CHRIS BROWN proved it was all about love by dyeing his hair red for Valentine’s Day, as he kicked off the UK leg of his Under The Influence tour.
Wearing dark specs and a multi-pocketed gilet under a bright puffer jacket, the With You singer played the first of six shows at London’s O2 Arena on Tuesday, with more concerts in the coming weeks in Birmingham, Glasgow and Manchester.
It is his first UK solo tour in 12 years and he is being supported at the gigs by rising South African star Tyla, who has just released the ridiculously catchy song Been Thinking.
