It must suck to be a celeb sometimes.
When Ellie Goulding got popular, all of a sudden it brought lots of attention, paparazzi and fame. She couldn’t handle it at times.
In an essay she wrote, Goulding says:
My life completely changed when my career started taking off in 2010. I was thrilled, of course—sharing my music with the world was a dream I’d been working toward for years—but it was a lot all at once. Suddenly, I was living alone in London and everything was happening so fast.
The attention turned into panic attacks for Goulding. It got so bad she had to smother herself with a pillow.
I started having panic attacks, and the scariest part was it could be triggered by anything. I used to cover my face with a pillow whenever I had to walk outside from the car to the studio. My new life as a pop star certainly wasn’t as glamorous as all my friends from home thought.
A lack of confidence contributed to her panic attacks, feeling that she wasn’t as good as people made her out to be.
Gradually, though, Goulding used self-talk to work her way through the attacks. That and kicking the crap out of heavy bags.
But there was another way I found inner confidence: boxing and kickboxing. I love that extra kick of adrenaline.
What’s with all the celebs into boxing now?
Good for her though on finding a healthy way out of those downtimes. Now, it’s about time for some new music, Ellie.
