The one-year-old singer told TV host Fearne Cotton in an interview about her relationship with the drink in the podcast: "I had to be the wrong person to handle the surreal situation I was in. It was usually I thought I could not be good enough, smart, funny, or crazy enough to be with certain people, and I thought that drinking would make me at least a little funnier or more interesting. "
The time of day did not affect whether Ellie drank or not. The Burn singer admitted that she even had a sip before the early hours of the morning – like in the Live Lounge of Radio 1 I even drank in front of them, I swear to God, "she continued," I'd say & # 39; Right, I have to have a drink this morning because I have this interview and I do not really know how to answer the questions because I do not really remember who I am. "
Ellie insisted However, she was never dependent on alcohol, adding, "I was not an alcoholic. I could also get months without a drink. "
Another thing the British pop star struggled with was handling their anger issues – she had turned to therapy to control her temper, but found nothing that worked until she met her present husband, the art dealer Caspar Jopling.
"When I met Caspar, that rage that thing just went away," she smiled. "At first it did not work out. I did what we all did when we first met someone you really like and you … may not show any of your bad qualities. With Caspar, I immediately felt calmer. "
Ellie and Caspar married in August.
