Ellie Goulding opens up about rebel past

The Lights hitmaker looked very different at the age of 14, and admits she was a "rebel" who dabbled in drink and drugs.

Goulding told Michael Parkinson: "I very nearly did go down that (bad) path, I was a bit of a rebel when I was 14. People would call me a goth, I had long black hair which was real, I had piercings and I liked heavy metal music, and the rest of it."

Asked whether she dabbled with drugs, Goulding added: "Yeah. I definitely had a period of drinking and being a bit crazy. I had no idea what my future was going to be then."

The interview airs in the UK as part of the Parkinson Masterclass in April.
