Ellie Goulding Smolders In ‘Cosmopolitan’, Talks Overcoming Heartache & Break-Ups: 5 Pics

Ellie Goulding has effortlessly made the transition from selfie-obsessed tom boy to glamorous pop star.

The Brit talks about matters of the heart in the accompanying interview and has some handy advice for anyone going through a break-up. “A lot of the despair in breaking up with someone is thinking about how you’re going to cope in the future,” she muses. “But not being completely present prevents you from being happy and alive.” So there you have it.
