Ellie Goulding has been inspired to be "more kicka**" since appearing as a gun-wielding star in Taylor Swift's 'Bad Blood' video
Ellie Goulding has been inspired by Taylor Swift's 'Bad Blood' video.
The 'Love Me Like You Do' hitmaker played bazooka-wielding fighter Destructa X in the 25-year-old singer's record breaking music video, and said taking part in the action-packed clip has made her want to be "more kicka**" in her own videos.
She said: "It was a fun video to film - that bazooka was pretty heavy.
"It's funny as well because I'm so not like that character. But watch this space, I might be a bit more kicka** in my videos. It's given me a bit of inspiration. I like that whole 'Don't mess with me' vibe."
Last November, the 28-year-old star revealed she is currently working on her third studio album following the success of 'Lights' and 'Halcyon', but hasn't had a problem taking time out of her writing and recording process to make pals with 'Blank Space' singer Taylor, who she is "good friends" with after meeting on a UK talk show.
She told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "We met on the Jonathan Ross chat show. We're good friends and we have a similar sense of humour."
