Ellie Goulding is inspired by Katie Price.

The singer has a great deal of respect for the glamour model-turned-businesswoman because she has had an incredible career and isn't afraid to take criticism.

She said: "To watch Katie Price's reality shows on TV is to fill your head with nothing. But, God help me, I also find myself admiring her. She's a powerful, rich woman with beautiful kids and a great life. Every day she's slagged off in the tabloids, but she just carries on regardless. Respect."

Ellie is also a fan of Lady GaGa and thinks she is an incredible artist, but one thing she isn't envious of is her global fame.

The 23-year-old pop star added; "I've met Lady Gaga and, of course, I was a bit star-struck. But I don't understand why so many people want to be famous at any cost. My fame is much more manageable. I'm under the radar. To have Lady Gaga's level of celebrity must mean out-of-this-world craziness."
