Ellie Goulding's 'embarrassing' sweat problem

Ellie Goulding's 'embarrassing' sweat problem

Ellie Goulding has an "embarrassing" sweat problem.

The 29-year-old singer songwriter - who graced the Pyramid Stage at this year's Glastonbury Festival held at Worthy Farm, Somerset - has admitted she has a "really bad" issue with perspiration, which regularly leaves her red faced.

Speaking openly to The Sun newspaper about her bodily fluids, the blonde beauty said: "I have a really bad sweat problem. It's embarrassing."

Meanwhile, the 'Love Me Like You Do' hitmaker is set to take a break from recording and performing because she feels her life has been put on "hold" while she pursued her career, and she's looking forward to waking up with no plans.

Speaking previously, she said: "I'm still going to be writing, but it's been so overwhelming the past few years that it's time to go away for a little bit and be out of the limelight.

"It's really a commitment, being on the road; you almost put everything on hold - seeing family, seeing friends. I've missed so many weddings and births.

"It will be nice to wake up and know I don't have anything to do."

Meanwhile, Ellie claims she is vulnerable and insecure, but only those she is close to and her ex-boyfriends are aware of her personal battles.

She explained: "There are private things people wouldn't know because I haven't mentioned them, but I'm pretty open, and that's just how I've always been.

"The guys I've been with know this about me. I have the same vulnerabilities, the same fears, the same insecurities as the next girl, but I'm very open about them. So rather than put up a front, if I'm scared of something, I'll just say it or tweet about it."
