Middling Popstar/Electro Goddess Ellie Goulding runs because she thinks it's good preparation for when the world decides to end.
The 'This Love (Will Be Your Downfall)' songstress went into detail about her apocalypse-inspired fitness regime, noting: "I go running — so I'll be ready when the world ends. Running is hugely important in my life and has been since I was 18. I woke up one morning and decided that running should be my thing. For me, it's about more than keeping fit."
"I'm preparing myself," she continued. "As a kid I'd lie awake at night and convince myself that a meteor was about to hit the Earth. It's my fatalistic streak, which I've inherited from my mum."
But wait, there's more.
"I firmly believe something cataclysmic is going to happen in my lifetime and I have to be prepared to run for my life when the time comes. Next year I hope to run my first marathon. Unless the world ends before I get the chance.''
We wonder if she's always had this dark turn of mind.
"I've always had a dark turn of mind. I blame my dad, who worked in a mortuary. He was obsessed with murder cases and would assemble these files that were packed with gruesome photographs. He'd let me look at them and I'm sure that's what led to me thinking dark thoughts. At a young age I was preoccupied with beheadings and things like that. I'd only have to look at a David Attenborough documentary to imagine giant ants taking over the world."
Bit weird really Ellie, but we suppose in this world Anything Can Happen hahahahahahhahahahaha haha haahhahaha ha ha.
