SNL: Ellie Goulding
Published: May 8, 2011
“What happened there was a feud between pop artists, but I talked to so many singers now, and everyone seems to side with each other,” Goulding told Billboard.com. “Adele is the greatest singer in the world right now, but it is a wonderful down-to-earth, I think you need a combination thereof, well, pop star good -. People like Nicki Minaj and Lady Gaga, who aren ‘t necessarily accessible [personality wise]. ”
If you have any doubts that the camp flexible, electronic-tinged singer-songwriter falls in UK: “It’s not me – I just kind of … sort of singing songs But diversity is something that must always be the case. ”
Goulding name seems to be in the air lately, known to some as a wedding singer in the world’s most famous. Last Friday, the Royal Wedding, Goulding made nearly a full concert of “about songs,” including her chill-inducing cover of Elton John “Your Song,” she said. The experience was both “a real night to remember” and “pleasant surprise” – and he would not have happened without music export colleagues in the United Kingdom, the rapper Tinie Tempah.
“He [Tinie] introduced me to Prince William last year at a festival because they were both looking at my game from the side of the stage,” said Goulding. “William enjoyed the game so that I keep in mind because, obviously, last week. ”
If last week cemented Goulding full-on celebrity in her homeland (2010, even after her first album, “Lights,” reached No. On the charts in the United Kingdom, fueled by the huge single “Starry Eyed”) ther weekend will be her big coming out stateside. Without much warning (“a week or two, she says), Goulding will perform on” Saturday Night Live “May 7, with a big giant – Tina Fey – who is required to make great odds. For Goulding nerves reasons, it is probably better than the prestige of an “SNL” performance was partly lost on the singer.
“It’s hard for me to handle the amount of a big deal” SNL is – an institution – because we have not in the United Kingdom “Goulding said, adding that her host is Fey’s” favorite lady ever -. I am a big fan of “30 Rock”
“I had to do some [promos] with her [Tina Fey] yesterday and everyone said I just got into ther strange girl shy around her,” said Goulding.
After “Saturday Night Live,” Goulding will return to an American audience at Lollapalooza, following performances in small groups at both Coachella and South By Southwest earlier ther spring. “It was the incredible rise to the task of cutting my band down to almost nothing,” said Goulding’s intimate concerts SXSW.
Although her debut Goulding finally saw a U.S. release in March of ther year (one year after its original release date across the pond), the new material reminiscent of early acoustic singer is in the works.
“I’ve been writing here and there – what comes out of my head weird,” she said. “I know what I want in a non-diva.”
